9. Lancia Flaminia Berlina
Even though the Italians are masters in car design and the Italian car industry is recognizable for their shapes and lines, Italy once looked to American cars for inspiration. And this is the case with the beautiful Lancia Flaminia Berlina, a big four-door sedan they introduced in late 50’s. It was the biggest, most luxurious Italian sedan. In fact, even the Italian government and officials drove them.
The car got its power from two V6 engines with 2.5 and 2.8 liters of displacement. Considering the size and purpose of this big car, the performance was decent with 102 to 128 HP. Pininfarina was the design name behind the Berlina. They gave it distinctive American styling with lots of chrome trim, a big grill and elegant, understated rear fins. Interestingly, Lancia produced coupe and convertible versions that are more popular than the Berlina.
