We just have to show you the little Fulvia Berlina. This car is the absolute exemplification of the term jewel-like. This is the automotive equivalent of an Officine Panerai watch with its precise engineering, delicate detailing and understated class – oh what class.
Here’s a tip for any emerging Hollywood starlet. Buy a Fulvia Berlina and swan around Beverly Hills in it. The kudos would be deafening.
Thanks to everyone who entered our competition. I am pleased to say that we have a winner.
The answer to the question, what was Lauda’s road car as shown in the Rush movie trailer is………a fantastic Lancia 2000 Berlina. This has got our juices flowing and I feel a Flavia/2000 post come up very soon.
The tantalising clip of the forthcoming Ron Howard movie Rush has been doing the rounds on all kinds of motoring blogs lately. It looks like a massive CGI-a-thon but we’re still excited, especially as the clip shows the true star of the film: Niki Lauda’s road car of choice. Did you spot it? To be honest if the rest of Rush is lousy it’ll be a hit with us because of this truly inspired piece of car casting.
So all you have to do is send us a comment with the make and model of Niki’s car and we will pick one lucky winner who’ll receive a copy of a rare, out of print book: La Collection – Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider.
You have to love Lancia, you have to. It was a brilliant brand; inventive, eccentric and different, but now no more. Here is a lovely little Fulvia to remind you of Ol’ Vincenzo’s greatness. And oh, those steelies!
