VINCENZO LANCIA AND THE BIRTH OF MODERN MOTORING

A DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT A VISIONARY MAN AND HIS EXTRAORDINARY MOTOR CAR

 

100 years ago, an Italian automotive pioneer changed the world of motoring forever.

That man was Vincenzo Lancia.

The car was the Lancia Lambda.

As part of the centenary celebrations, the event organisers have teamed up with automotive film specialists, Berlinetta Films, to make a documentary telling this remarkable story with the help of the Lancia family and the international Lancia community.

Despite building one of the great Italian automotive dynasties, Vincenzo Lancia remains an enigmatic figure, his achievements less recognised and his masterpiece only appreciated by the cognoscenti.

The Lambda, with its monocoque chassis, independent front suspension, narrow V-4 engine and four wheel braking, was a technological tour de force ahead of its time upon its launch in 1922.

The project has received support from Lancia Clubs, owners, enthusiasts and specialists worldwide, and brings together an unmatched resource of international expertise, archive and vehicles.

Filming is taking place in Italy, the UK, Northern Europe and Australia and the Centenary Fobello Rallywill feature as a fitting finale in the film, which will be premiered at The Turin Film Festival in December.

The Producers would like to hear from anybody with period archive photographs, footage or information that is relevant to the film.  If you haven’t yet supported the project with funding, every contribution, no matter how small, helps to make ‘Vincenzo Lancia and the Birth of Modern Motoring’ a documentary worthy of the man and his landmark car.
