Carrozzeria Touring in Milan made the Flaminia GT bodies side by side with the Maserati 3500GT. Both cars employed the Superleggera (super light) method of construction in which an aluminum skin was wrapped around a steel frame. Superleggera was a time consuming and expensive method to hand build a car and the list of cars to employ this method of construction are now all highly sought after ... such as the Maserati 3500GT, Lamborghini 350/400GT, Aston Martin DB4/DB5 and Ferrari 212 and 340.
I've owned a couple of the Flaminia Touring spyders (convetibles) and although I really like open cars I find in this case that the coupe looks much better. There was also a 2+2 version made, known as the GTL but I do not like the proportions.
This car was owned and restored by a well known Lancia enthusiast and is in very good condition with the exception of the clutch. When I purchased the car I knew the clutch was slipping and the driveshaft vibrates at speed. The clutch was recently replaced so it has all new parts. It was not assembled correctly and will need to be redone. My goal is to get the car all sorted out by Spring 2022.
