Vincenzo Lancia was an Italian racing driver and engineer. In 1906 Vincenzo Lancia started building cars, and on 29 November the same year, together with his friend Claudio Fogolin, he founded Lancia.
Lancia Lambda was the most advanced car of its day and is still universally recognised to be Signor Lancia’s masterpiece. It was presented in 1922 at the Paris and London Motor Shows. It was the first car weighing less than one thousand kg able to accommodate no fewer than seven people. Lancia Lambda was manufactured in nine successive series between 1922 and 1931.
