Thornley Kelham unveils Lancia Aurelia Outlaw
Restoration firm Thornley Kelham has revealed what it calls the ultimate evolution of its Lancia Aurelia Outlaw, known as the European CSL model.
Three of these cars will be created with aluminium bodies to make them 75kg lighter than the original. A Busso 3.2-litre V6 producing more than 300bhp will power each of the trio, and they will also have a limited slip differential and suspension tuned to a fast road specification.
Each car will take 2200 hours to complete and the style is based on the Mille Miglia Le Mans Aurelia B20GT of Giovanni Bracco that was restored by Thornley Kelham.
Simon Thornley, co-founder of Thornley Kelham, said: ‘The Aurelia Outlaw project has now reached its ultimate evolution, with just three remaining cars to be built, each with a new set of meticulously developed upgrades. This doesn’t mark the end of our bespoke commissions. In fact, the European CSL is the first of a new line-up of projects we have developed to launch in the coming years that will be badged as The Europeans by Thornley Kelham. As with the Aurelia commissions, these will be built around iconic performance cars, developed with fresh designs, upgraded performance and a meticulous eye for detail.’
