The story of the legendary Lancia Endurance cars. The Beta Montecarlo Turbo Silhouette, the Sport LC1 and the Group C LC2 seen and told by Gianni Tonti. Yet another encyclopaedia on the golden years of motoring associated with the Lancia marque.
Italian OR English Edition - Limited edition
The book, with forewords by Gianpaolo Dallara and Riccardo Patrese, recounts the activities of the Lancia Racing Department starting in 1978, the year of the Turin-based brand’s debut in the World Makes Championship on the track. From rallies to speed races, the music does not change. Many successes and satisfactions.
Three iconic ‘track’ cars are described in this third chapter of the Reparto Corse Lancia ‘saga’: the Beta Montecarlo Turbo Silhouette, the Sport LC1 and the Group C LC2. Each in great detail: from the sketches and design ideas, to their development and evolution, through to the results and exploits on the world’s most prestigious speed circuits.
Gianni Tonti, one of the great architects of Lancia’s successes, as in his other books, makes us relive the department ‘from the inside’. The races seen through the eye, pen and professionalism of managers and mechanics who were passionate and attached to the Lancia brand.
There is no lack of anecdotes, race strategies, the shrewdness of sporting director Cesare Fiorio, technical choices, and the activities of drivers and co-drivers.
