CMC Lancia D50, 1955 Rolling Chassis
Limited Edition 1000 pcs.
This ground-breaking Lancia D50 is a gem in the Grand Prix racing history and is stunningly interesting to look behind the body panels. This rolling chassis replica from CMC offers a revealing way to display a legendary car in a new perspective with which to eyeball it.
With the body panels removed, you can have a perfect sight on the sophisticated structure of the rigid tubular space frame. You can also see the highly detailed engine being a stressed member of the frame structure and the whole drive train of the Lancia D50. The CMC replica offers revealing looks into the interior of its cockpit and these parts of the suspension assemblage which was covered by the body panels otherwise. Also clearly visible are details of the cooling system, the oil circulation and the driver´s place.
A centerpiece in the front chassis is the impressive V8-engine with a maximum output of 260 hp mounted 12° to the left in the longitudinal axis. It featured the relocation and integration of the transmission to the rear axle as a block unit that came to be known as transaxle. This arrangement was motivated by the need to shift the weight balance towards the rear and down in height for aerodynamic virtues. Vented hydraulic drum brakes on all four wheels served to ensure a reliable and necessary delay when the car slowed down from a top speed of approximately 300 km/h.
