The Lancia Fulvia is an Italian car introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 by Lancia and produced until 1976. Fulvias are notable for their role in motorsport history, including winning the International Rally Championship in 1972. On testing it in 1967, Road and Track summed up the Fulvia as a precision motorcar, an engineering tour de force. Named after Fulvia Flacca Bambula, an aristocratic Roman woman and wife of Mark Antony.One element that was new was the narrow-angle V4 engine. Designed by Zaccone Mina, it used a narrow angle and was mounted well forward at a 45 angle. The engine is a DOHC design with a one camshaft operating all intake valves and another operating all exhaust valves. The very narrow angle of the cylinders allowed for use of a single cylinder head.The fulvia manages remarkably well on power giving its displacement. I believe the first car to get 100hp per litre was the ferrari 250 gto, and that was only 10 years back. The engine in the fulvia is sometimes overlooked, because of how great the whole car is, but it really is one of the most remarkable details.
