Over a years, we’ve showcased copiousness of sheds that are ripping with automotive gems. Not that you’d ever know from a outside. They all tend to be in big, featureless enormo-hangars on some forgettable industrial estate. Click these blue difference to see what we mean. But now there’s a new big, featureless enormo-hangar on some forgettable industrial estate. It’s fantastically Italian and full to a margin of some of a excellent Fiat, Lancia and Abarths ever. If you’re into those, it competence only be heaven.
It’s called a Heritage HUB, FCA’s new storage trickery for a several brand’s legends. Basically, it’s lots of poetic good things underneath one roof. And don’t worry, we’ve already asked to see it for ourselves to puncture a bit deeper.
Located on a former Officina 81 site in Via Plava, Turin, a 15,000-square-metre bureau has been tastefully easy though being modernised so that Kevin McCloud comes knocking, to turn a holding trickery for over 250 Fiats, Lancias, and Abarths from a FCA Heritage Collection.
The cars embody all from singular pattern studies, crazy concepts, drastic competition and convene cars, and copiousness of one-offs and cars that have never been seen in public. We’re articulate things like a Lancia Fulvia HF 1600, a mythological Stratos HF, a despotic Delta HF, a Fiat Panda Rock Moretti, 124 Abarth Rally and Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo and a LC2. There’s also lots, lots, lots more.
The collection has been curated to showcase, safety and foster a birthright of a Fiat, Lancia, and Abarth brands and is distant into 8 thematic exhibitions (Archistars, Concept and Personalised cars, Eco and Sustainable, Epic Journeys, Records and Races, Small and Safe, Style Marks, The Rally Era) any highlighting 8 cars from opposite eras and brands dating behind to 1908.
The HUB will also turn home to FCA Heritage, and a arrangement space for a “Reloaded by Creators” project, that certifies and restores all selected models and prepares them for sale most like Lamborghini’s Polo Storico department.
We haven’t got a accurate dates yet, though distinct a lot of manufacturer’s sheds this arrangement will shortly be open to a public. You’re tempted to check out inexpensive flights, aren’t you? Go on, do it.
