Lancia Gamma


Lancia Gamma

The Gamma was Lancia's answer to European executive cars such as the Ford Granada and Citroen CX when it was launched in 1976. A large four-door saloon with distinctive sloped rear end styling, it was billed as one of the most important cars in Lancia's history. Sadly, it wasn't to be - it might have looked stunning, but poor reliability and shocking build quality meant it never achieved its projected sales targets. The car's unusual 2.5-liter flat four engine had character and was fairly powerful, but a design flaw meant that cambelts were prone to slipping, with disastrous consequences. Rust was a problem, too. The most attractive Gamma variant was the distinctive two-door coupe, styled by Pininfarina, which went on to achieve cult status among collectors. Revised Series 2 cars became available from 1980, with numerous minor changes to the design.
