Lancia Fulvia Coupe
The Lancia Fulvia was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and manufactured by Lancia as well as FIAT until 1976. It was a great success in motorsport, winning the International Rally Championship in 1972. Upon testing it in 1967, Road & Track commented on the Fulvia as "a precision motorcar, an engineering tour de force". The car was designed by Antonio Fessia to succeed the Lancia Appia, utilizing some elements from the Appia, but with the general engineering of the Flavia.
The Fulvia changed the rear-wheel drive of the Appia to the front-wheel drive of the Flavia. It boasted a longitudinal engine in front of its transaxle, with an independent suspension up front using wishbones as well as a single leaf spring and a solid axle with a panhard rod and more leaf springs for the rear. Furthermore, the incorporation of four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes brought forth novelty, yet Road & Track still observed considerable brake fade.
The narrowed-angle V4 engine was brand-new, with its 12°53'28" angle being designed by Zaccone Mina. It was mounted at a 45-degree angle and featured double overhead camshafts with a single camshaft for both intake and exhaust valves respectively. As it was a vee engine, the narrow angle allowed for the use of a single cylinder head.
