"Censin", as Vincenzo Lancia was nicknamed, preferred to spend his days in the workshop below his house than with his head in the books. In 1906 he founded the Turinese automotive company which still bears his name. Some of its cars have made history: the Lambda, Astura, Augusta, Aprilia, Aurelia and Flavia. Not to forget the sporting successes of the legendary D50, Stratos, Beta Montecarlo and Delta. Elegance and refinement have always been the distinguishing features of this manufacturer's vehicles.
