The Lancia Aprilia, built in 1949, marks the start of an intimate cooperation between Vignale and Lancia.
A cooperation that lasted 15 years and resulted in a variety of models, both in smaller as well in larger series.
Although Vignale attracted a clear interest in the Lancia Aprilia's clientele, only few Aprilias could have been built as the Aprilia was soon to be replaced by the revolutionary Aurelia.
Below you see two Vignale variations of the Aprilia.
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.
