The Lambda (1922) was Lancia’s breakthrough car: chock-full of innovations, it was popular, unique, inventive. With a V-4 engine, a true unit body, and independent front suspension, it had a curious blend of being both lightweight and robust. It also had a particularly cultured industrial character quite unlike other cars of its time. These unique characteristics have been part of the company ever since, and have influenced all Lancias since then.

Illustrations in the Owner’s Manual remind the Owner how to take care of his car. While not unusual at the time, they give us some suggestions of the emerging character of the firm.
