the restomod of the legendary Lancia 037!

A small Italian workshop has decided to modernize a legend: the Lancia 037.

Even if restomods (restorations of old with modern pieces) are on the rise, it takes a certain courage to tackle a model as rare and mythical as the Lancia 037.

Under this skin, the suspensions have been modernized by the specialist Öhlins, while the brakes are now modern Brembos. Finally, we notice large 18- and 19-inch rims, which remain retro in their design.

Kimera plans to produce 37 copies of theEVO37, which is already a significant part of the 207 units produced by Lancia at the time. And with a price set at 480 000 €, it will not be accessible to everyone …
