1976 Lancia Gamma Coupe by Pininfarina

The Lancia Gamma sedan was the most run-of-the-mill car, and its design received mostly critical reviews. The stylistically independent Gamma Coupe is one of the most beautiful cars of the 1970s. This large and elegant coupe was a triumph for Pininfarina (the work of Aldo Brovarone), which created a great car based on an unpromising chassis and a platform shortened by 4.5 inches.

The Lancia Gamma Coupe was the pinnacle of Pininfarina design from the Keystone era. A feature was a wide side recess on the sides of the car, in which dark plastic served to focus attention. The coupe shares many similarities with the Fiat 130 Coupe but is less playful. Similarities were also noted with the Ferrari 365 GT4 2 +2 and the Ferrari 412. Interestingly, the sedan looked like a coupe-style fastback, and a three-volume body distinguished the Coupe. Pininfarina has tried to make this very large car look smaller than its real size. The Gamma Coupe can be considered an American dream of an Italian spill. She is imposing and imposing in an American way, and at the same time, beautiful in Italian.
