Lancia 2000 HF - 1972

Lancia 2000 HF - 1972


Quality and great engineering dressed in a handsome Pininfarina tailored suit could almost sum up the sophisticated Lancia 2000 HF.  It has body lines which reminds us of a Fiat Dino or 124 coupe and from a rear quarter view it could be a Ferrari 330 GT.

When introduced in 1500cc form in 1960 under the Flavia name, it was the first Italian car with front wheel drive. The 2000 HF lost its Flavia name in 1972 and featured a 2 liter, flat-four, water-cooled boxer engine located in front of the front axle like a modern Audi. It gave the HF a low center of gravity with safe road manners. 5-speed gearbox and disc brakes on all 4 wheels were not every day stuff in these days, but on Lancia it could almost be considered as a matter of course.

With big elegant instruments in a wooden dashboard, wood rimmed steering wheel, leather upholstery and thick carpets, the interior of the 2000 HF oozes style and subdued class. The 2000 HF was maybe not the most expensive car money could buy, but driving this elegant and aristocratic motorcar the Lancia owner did make a discrete statement that he had a taste for the finer things in life and could afford it.

We found this 2000 HF just outside Rome where it belonged to a retired veterinarian. A has very healthy body that we after proper dismantling of all outside trim, lights and glass gave a quality paint job in its original blu scuro. The tan leather upholstery is in exceptionally good condition. This 2000 HF is also a joy to drive and is sure to give its new owner great joy and pride.
