In the November Issue: The Lancia Outlaw

Story by Johan Dillen • Photography by Dirk de Jager

This Lancia looks like it came rolling straight out of a Guy Ritchie movie. 

The handsome, street-style-smart Italian was conceived in the workshop of British classic car specialist Thornley Kelham. And while it seems impossible to make a Lancia Aurelia B20GT any cooler than it already is, that is precisely what he did by building a Fuorilegge version—that’s Outlaw to the rest of us.

The Outlaw concept has always been a provocation for purists. In fact, it was pretty much conceived to be exactly that—as well as out of a quest for more speed, no matter what.

Sometimes, though, the first element that gets sacrificed during the transition is a sense of taste. Do a bit of Googling and you’ll see that not every 911 looks better after the treatment.

The trick, of course, is to thread the needle—to capture Marlon Brando from “The Wild One,” not Vito Corleone simply wearing a bomber jacket. 

There’s tension to be kept.

It’s a fine line.

We'll take you through the history and behind the wheel of this rebel without a cause in the November 2020 issue of Classic Motorsports magazine. Subscribe now to get it.
