Lancia is one of Italy’s oldest and most respected car manufacturers. Founded in 1906 by Vincenzo Lancia, a former racing car driver, its cars became known for innovative engineering and excellent road-holding. Typically not the fastest or sexiest cars available, they represented a quality offering in the middle of the market. That worked well up through the 1950s, after which mass production techniques became more widespread in the Italian car industry. Lancia was unable to adapt or compromise on its quality, and it was ultimately acquired by Fiat in 1969.
