Lancia V6 engine

In 1950, Lancia introduced the world's first V6 engine in the Lancia Aurelia. The engine remained in production through 1970.


The first-generation Aurelia engines were produced from 1950 through 1967.


The 1.8 L (1754 cc) 1800 was the first V6.

  • 1950 Lancia Aurelia


The engine was expanded to 2.0 L (1991 cc) for 1951's B21 Aurelia. Bore was 72 mm and stroke was 81.5 mm.

  • 1951-1952 Lancia Aurelia


A 2.3 L (2266 cc) version was also produced.


The largest of the original Aurelia engines was the 2.5 L (2451 cc) 2500 introduced in 1953. It was still undersquare at 78 mm bore and 85.5 mm stroke.

  • 1953-1957 Lancia Aurelia


The engine's severe undersquare design was addressed for the 1957 Flaminia version. This lasted in production through 1970.


The new 2.5 L engine displaced 2458 cc from a much less undersquare 80 mm bore and 82 mm stroke.

  • 1957-1970 Lancia Flaminia


The final version was the 2.8 L (2775 cc) engine. Bore was now 85 mm and stroke remained at 82 mm as in the 2500.
