Lancia

 
 
 
Lancia Automobiles S.p.A. is an Italian automobile manufacturer founded in 1906 by Vincenzo Lancia and which became part of the Fiat Group in 1969. The company has a long history of producing distinctive cars and also has a strong rally heritage. Modern Lancias are seen as presenting a more luxurious alternative to the models in the Fiat range upon which they are based.

Lancia is famous for many automotive innovations: the first production car in Europe to feature a complete electrical system as standard equipment; the first car with a monocoque-type body and also a 'Sliding Pillar' independent front suspension that incorporated the spring and hydraulic damper into a single unit; the first 5 speed gearbox to be fitted to a production car; the first full-production V6 engine; the first company to produce a V4 engine; first use of independent suspension in production cars.

Lancia remains in the WRC the most statistically successful brand (despite having withdrawn at the end of the 1993 season), winning constructors' titles with the Stratos (1974, 1975 and 1976), the 037 (1983) and the Delta (every year from 1987 to 1992). The Delta is also the most successful individual model designation ever to compete in rallying.

The original Lancia logo was designed by Count Carlo Biscaretti di Ruffia. The logo shows a lance and shield with flag.
