This one-off Lancia Aurelia B53 Coupe was a display car created for the 1953 Torino Motor Show. The body was designed by Giovanni Michelotti, who worked for a number of design houses in addition to Allemano, most notably Vignale. Michelotti's design was brought to life by the panel beaters and craftsmen of Carrozzeria Allemano in Turin. The body is mostly made out of steel, but the bonnet and doors are made of aluminium for weight saving.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
