Lancia cars are well-known for their inclination to innovations, which is especially true of its motorsport models. Want to know how they did it? We can help you to have the body remo-ved. In this way, a so-called "Rolling Chassis" is born. It reveals a multitude of structural de-tails to your eyes – the V12 engine complete with accessories and wiring, the lattice work of the tubular frame, the arrangement of suspension, the drive train system, the rear axle transmission (transaxle), and much more.
Take the engine for instance. It is integrated into the chassis as a supporting member of rein-forcement. Note that the engine is equipped with a double magnetic ignition system and in-stalled at 12 ° offset to the left. This enabled the propeller shaft to bypass the driver’s seat to reach the transaxle in the rear. As a result, a significant lowering of the drivers seat was mde possible, thus yielding much-desired aerodynamic advantages.
It is certainy worthwhile to examine the undercarriage, which is now laid bare under your eyes. There are also the elaborate worm-gear system of the steering wheel, the exhaust sys-tem, the oil-cooling system, and much more for you to see and discover.
Enjoy the fun of getting to know your favorite car much better than you think is ever possib-le.
