I happen to think that the Lancia Fulvia is the most beautiful car ever made and I tend to put my fingers in my ears and sing if people disagree with me. So with the styling of the car indisputable, the only thing I had left to do was answer the nagging question I've had in my mind; does it drive as good as it looks?
Thankfully, my buddy Jamie at Targa Florio Classics was willing to let me find out just what it was like to drive a Lancia Fulvia. He handed me the opportunity to drive the car above, a 1969 Series One Rallye, the very car I recently shared with you all in another article. It's not a standard Lancia Fulvia setup, having been modified with mechanical parts shared with it's sportier relation- the Fulvia HF, to provide a theatrical rally feel. Truth be told, Jamie can tell you about the mechanical ins and outs far better than I ever could, and as well as the details on the website, he'd be very happy to go into more detail with you personally. What I'm best at is telling you about my experience, and how this car really feels.
