Classic (non race) Cars
his car was built by Lancia in 1982 to compete in the championship reserved for Group C, equipped with a 4-cylinder 1425 Turbo engine delivering 450 hp and had a total weight of only 640 kg
This model is the first of about 4 built and in the debut of the Group C World Championship at the Nurburgring was piloted by the Ghinzani Patrese couple, with the latter, was immediately the victim of a serious accident in the official tests.
The car had already raced in both Monza and Silverstone
The pilot came out unharmed was taken to hospital, but so much was the talent when the volition of the pilot Paduan the next day ran with the second car driven together with Teo Fabi and Michele Alboreto, the three brought the Lancia LC / 1 chassis n . 2 to win the race giving a round of secondment to the second Pescarolo-Ragnotti-Stommelen on Rondeau.
The car 01 now battered by the accident (but still equipped with the original plate) returned to Lancia not to be rearranged, will in fact be sold at the end of the season with three other cars similar to the SILVAMA of Galliate along with many spare parts.
With the Bersini team the Silvama Lancia Group C car was born based on the mechanics of the Lancia Spider group 6 LC / 1 which allowed in 1982 to fight until the last race for the title, but the LC / 1 remained very little. The three cars have been deeply modified with the spider in coupe setting, the body has been modified to the height of the dashboard, a bulkhead between the cockpit and engine has been added, the roll bar has been updated and the suspension has been deeply modified. See Autosprint of March 1983
"Our" 001 remained for many years by Bersini in the same condition of the post accident until a well-known Italian collector about 20 years ago bought the remains of the car NEVER MODIFIED and many spare parts from the other 3 cars updated and I start a slow and accurate restoration / reconstruction using many original pieces.
