The trivia section states that the Lancia was a 1977 Lancia Montecarlo. In fact it is the sister car of the Montecarlo called the Scorpion.
The Lancia Scorpion is derived from the Lancia Montecarlo. The car is so called because the name Montecarlo was already used in America by Chevrolet.
The Scorpion differs from the Montecarlo in a number of ways:
Smaller engine (1800 cc) because the 2 liter unit in the Montecarlo had not passed smog tests.
Different bumper (fender) configuration to meet American crash tests.
Solid rear buttresses (Montecarlos had glass inserts except for the very early models)
Unlike the Montecarlo, only one production run of Scorpions was made. A total of 1801 were produced between 1976 and 1977.
I happen to think that the Lancia Montecarlo / Scorpion is one of the most beautiful cars ever made, anyone agree?
