the restomod of the legendary Lancia 037!

A small Italian workshop has decided to modernize a legend: 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 …
