1975-1982 LANCIA Beta Spider specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
In theory this is just a Beta Coupé with a clever roof, but this is Lancia so it’s more complicated than that. The Targa top with folding rear window section and different door window frames was designed by Pininfarina and built by Zagato, which was enough for the car to be badged Lancia Zagato in America. They also changed the tail-lights for units shared with the Bristol Beaufighter. Unusually it’s a four-seater convertible. Only sold with 1600 or 2000 engines, though there’s not that much difference in performance between them.
