LANCIA AURELIA B10/B21/B22/B12
Jano's lovely if complex alloy 60-degree V6 with hemi heads, in conjunction with four-speed synchro transaxle and inboard rear brakes. Originally a modest 1750, but progressively uprated: B21 has 2-litre 70bhp engine, its replacement B22 a 90bhp unit, and 1954-55 B12 has 2.2-litre 87bhp engine and leaf-sprung De Dion back end instead of original semi-trailing irs. A fine and technically pioneering car, but expensive to maintain/restore, and it rusts.
