Lamborghini, Fiat Chrysler to present restored cars at Rètromobile
A restored Miura, partially rebuilt Countach and a collection of Fiats, Lancias and Alfa Romeos will promote both marques' heritage departments
Lamborghini and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will display a range of restored classic cars at Rètromobile, showing the two firm’s in-house heritage services.
The Paris show, from February 7 to 11, will feature a prize-winning Miura and a right-hand drive Countach – both of which are being restored by Lamborghini Polo Storico.
A 1967 Miura P400, finished after a ten-month rebuild that followed the original production documents sourced from the marque’s archive, includes a rebuilt interior and dashboard returned to its original Testa di Moro colour. The car’s chassis, electrical, braking and cooling systems have also been subject to the reconditioning process.
The Miura’s restoration was finished by August 2017, following which the car won first prize in the P400 class at the first Lamborghini & Design, Concorso d'Eleganza held in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in September last year.
Also on display is partially rebuilt 1976 Countach LP400. The car has been returned to its factory yellow and parts have been sourced from Lamborghini’s original spares.
The heritage department of Automobili Lamborghini will display examples of newly-manufactured 4-litre V12 engine heads, as part of its ongoing service for classic Lamborghini models – including the LM002, Espada, Jarama, Islero and Diablo.
Fiat Chrysler will also launch its new classic car restoration service at the Paris Show.
Called 'FCHA Heritage', it will display a 1991 Alfa Spider IV, 1973 Lancia Fulvia Coupé Montecarlo, 1981 Spidereuropa Pininfarina, 1989 Alfa Romeo SZ and 1959 Lancia Appia Coupé.
The Spider IV – owned by Alfa Romeo since new and used for colour testing –, Fulvia Montecarlo and Spidereuropa have been termed ‘ultimate classics’ by FCA due to them being the last versions of each series to be produced.
By contrast, the SZ is one of the first produced, registered in September 1989. It was used for testing at the Balocco circuit.
FCA Heritage follows the path of similar programmes such as the recently announced continuation of the Jaguar D-type.
