Lancia Aurelia B52 Pininfarina Coupe
1st Reg. date: 1952

In 1952, perhaps a little late, Lancia fitted the Aurelia chassis to be supplied to coachbuilders with the most powerful 2-liter engine already adopted on the B21 sedan. The new chassis, thus equipped, are called B52 and B53: the B52 replaces the B50 and is the normal chassis, while the B53 replaces the B51 and is the one destined for bulkier and heavier bodies. These chassis with two-liter engine - whose production does not even reach 200 units - are used, like their predecessors, by the most renowned Italian coachbuilders and also by some foreign coachbuilders (such as the Swiss Beutler and Worblaufen). On the B52 chassis, Pininfarina builds, among others, almost all the famous PF200s.
