Nothing brings us more joy than running into obscure mid engined Italian sports cars from the 70s like this Lancia Scorpion (known in Europe as a Montecarlo). Sure, it’s not nearly as valuable, posh or pretty as a Ferrari Daytona from the day but it sure is rare. Only 1,801 of these US market Scorpions were manufactured in the 2 years they were sold state side (’76 – ’77).
The spotting is utterly timely as the Scorpion was constructed by legendary design house Pininfarina the exact year that Sergio took the reins as president (1966).
I’ll give you a hint…it was only sold on these shores for one year and needed to change its name as not to conflict with one of the General’s popular models. Weigh in below with a make and model for your free Man on the Move t-shirt.
This handsome little coupe blew by me on the freeway. Like one of those gun fights from the Wild West, I whipped out my 3G and fired off this picture fast as I could. The car looks and feels like a vintage European, possibly with an Italian body design (Zagato, Bertone, Pininfarina, etc). You know the drill – name that car and get a super cool Man on the Move t-shirt.
