Whenever the Lancia Volumex was first released, it was treated with initial praise and described as being one of the most attractive coupes designed by Pininfarina at the time. When new, it came to market at an impressive £7,995 and boasted many features.
The Coupe Volumex was more than a bolted on supercharger, other modifications included closing the ratios on the five-speed gearbox, doubling the springs on the clutch pressure plate and fitting stiffer road springs, while from the exterior the Volumex version attracted its audience with its black-painted air dam and a streamlined rear spoiler across the boot lid.
With only 150 RHD examples coming into the UK, trying to find one today has become such a rarity, even seeing one on a British road is near impossible. What makes this example such a find, is that it is rarer still, being a 1 of 9 ‘Stratton’ vehicles. The Stratton model came with enhanced exterior styling both to the front air dam, side skirts, and rear spoiler, finished in its exterior body colour. Surprisingly, It is believed that only 2 strattons are now left in existence.
The remit by the owner to the professional restorers was to make as close to new, replace as many components as possible with newly sourced OE parts located from literally all over the world with an estimated build of nearly 1000 hours. Fixtures and fastenings are Stainless steel grade, with a ‘no expense spared’ approach to this build. Inside the majority of switchgear is new and the likewise the mechanical components.
As featured in Autoitalia hundreds of hours went into the build and the end result is a fantastic driving Beta VX and a unique opportunity to purchase a piece of Lancia’s history.
The owner will be delighted to talk to all interested parties and encourage prospective buyers to speak directly to the restoration company. A comprehensive report can be provided and a visual inspection is highly recommended off-site at the restorer's premises.
Very few VX's remain and Lancia is surely a brand in years that will be fondly missed by true enthusiasts and is set to become extremely collectible - just look at the values of Integrales over the past 5 years.
The owner is open to sensible offers which reflect the uniqueness and condition of this excellent Lancia Beta.
