The history of the Lancia Fulvia Coupé is fascinating. It is one of the most iconic cars produced by the brand, and its design continues to serve as an inspiration for the creation of new models. This is due, in large part, to its eclecticism, which allows it to be both an aggressive and successful model in its racing configuration, as well as an elegant road coupé with comfortable interiors.
The story of the Lancia Fulvia began in 1965 when the vehicle made its debut as an elegant compact car at the Geneva Motor Show. Compared to the sedan introduced in 1963, the Fulvia has a more agile and sporty line, a 2 plus 2 seat configuration, a bright passenger compartment, large sloping glazing, and windshield and rear window. Additionally, the rear window is larger than the windshield.
