coincidentally lancia celebrates 100 years this year...

Absolutely, I second you there Karl.
They look like cast iron with heavy art-deco webbing to do what strong mild-steel does today.
And the quaint vintage crinkly paint finish was so characteristic of castings of the 'thirties and 'forties. My vintage Remington typewriter had it as had an ancient slide projector.

Multiple choices?

This is a 1951 Lancia Aurelia B21.



Powered by a 1991 cc V6 that developed 70 bhp @ 4800 rpm, it could cruise at 145 km/h. It brought competition laurels to Lancia by taking the first four places in the Giro di Sicilia.

It succeeded the spectacularly innovative Aurelia B10.

The Lancia Aurelia introduced the world to the production V6 engine. It was also the first aluminium engine with removable cast iron cylinder liners. The camshaft had a double roller chain. The engine was hitched up to a revolutionary powertrain configuration. Designer Vittorio Jano achieved effective weight distribution by integrating the clutch, gearbox and differential, all into one rear-mounted unit. The rear brakes were also placed inboard on the differential to lighten the independent coil-sprung wheel mass. This concept is used in the Hummer H1.

annotations mine

This concept was later copied by Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Porsche.

Two offshoots of the Aurelia B10 are particularly memorable:
1. The Monte Carlo rally and 24-hour Le Mans winning Aurelia B20 coupé, which could reach 185 km/h. It was the first granturismo (GT) to combine high performance with luxury.

Many jet setters of the 1950s from Gary Cooper to Prince Ranieri of Monaco were to be found behind the wheel of a B20.

2. The Pinin Farina designed 1954 Aurelia B24 Spider -- a dream machine destined to remain an unmatchable paragon of beauty and style.

well, multiple choices as methinks there were multiple answers! this bodystyle also did appear on the appia...im guessing they were the same car with different engine/trim options...its just that i was introduced to the appia as a kid, and the image stuck in my head ever since...

the B24 spyder is one of my all time favorites....along with the fiat 1100/1200 spyders, they set the standard for relatively cheap, cheeky and fun to drive italian roadsters...and all lancias (to date) are known for there exceptionally classy style and appeal...heck, no less than the pope drives one!

Default Bombay-Khandala race of the spiders

This is an unusual "Guess the car" situation.
Karlosdeville and I discussed it when we last met.

In Yash Chopra's 1965 classic movie, "Waqt",
Raj Kumar and Sunil Dutt drive a red spider and a cream spider
in a Bombay-Khandala race to win the hand of Sadhana.

Can anybody identify the exact makes, models and years of each of those two cars?
