The Lancia Aurelia was the original modern GT

A few weeks ago, at Bicester Heritage on Drive-it Day, I saw the 'outlaw' Lancia Aurelia B20 GT recently created by restoration specialist Thornley Kelham. It's a lowered-roof, stripped-down, minimalised 'resto-mod', an act of artistry or aesthetic sacrilege depending on the breadth of your mind. I love it, because it has been done with sensitivity and period appropriateness, and it's one in the eye for the po-faced purist.
