Rare 1939 Lancia Astura Series 4 Pinin Farina Cabriolet to grace Concours of Elegance Germany


The prestigious Concours of Elegance Germany has confirmed the presence of a true gem from automotive history at its July event: the 1939 Lancia Astura Series 4 Pinin Farina Cabriolet. Powered by a small-displacement V8 engine, this unique cabriolet is renowned for its unparalleled beauty.

The Lancia brand, founded by the innovative Vincenzo Lancia in 1906, has a rich history of engineering excellence and groundbreaking design. From pioneering concepts like the Lambda to the Astura, Lancia has consistently pushed the boundaries of automotive innovation.

The Astura Series 4, introduced in 1937, represented the pinnacle of Lancia’s engineering prowess. Boasting an increased engine capacity of 2972 cc and an extended wheelbase of 3475 mm, the Series 4 Astura featured cutting-edge advancements such as an electric soft top, setting new standards for comfort and performance in its era.

Collaborating with leading Italian coachbuilders, Lancia enlisted Pinin Farina to craft a bespoke body design for the Astura Series 4. The result was the Lancia Astura Series 4 Pinin Farina Cabriolet – a masterpiece of aerodynamic styling, characterized by an inclined radiator front, sleek windscreen, and pontoon-like wings. Today, it stands as one of the most elegant automobiles of its time.

The presence of the 1939 Lancia Astura Series 4 Pinin Farina Cabriolet at the Concours of Elegance Germany promises to be a highlight of the event, offering attendees a rare opportunity to appreciate a true automotive icon up close.
