I love the style, perhaps that one is cut a little too low for me but very cool.

Yes the Beta did for them in the UK. I remember it well.

Dad was looking to buy probably his first brand new car and the list was a Citroen GS1220 or a Lancia Beta. He was a pilot and so liked the engineering in both.

The Beta then had the rust scandal and so Dad bought the Citroen. Within 18 months the rear wheel arches had rusted clean through!

You have to love their rear light design.

I know it's not Lancia but working on the "if you like this then you might like this" try this company for Alfa stuff. They have done some wonderful rebuilds. https://www.alfaholics.com/

A friend has a B20GT, a gorgeous car. I believe both Fangio and Mike Hawthorn owned one.
I had a Lancia HPE in the 1980s. Lovely car, but fragile. Crowning glory was shearing the brake pedal off the pedal box whilst driving in Bristol.
