OUTLAW #5

When we found this very tired Lancia Aurelia B20GT deparately in need of rescuing, we knew it would make the ideal Outlaw project. The latest in the Outlaw series, it has recently begun its transformation from rusting, bare metal body shell. How Outlaw 5 will be customised and tailored to the lucky owner’s vision will be gradually revealed as we progress with the project.

When we were contacted about a Lancia Aurelia B20GT deparately in need of some TLC, we knew it would make the perfect Outlaw donor car. When we were approached by a very knowledgable car collector about a new project, he was really taken with the idea of an Outlaw and commissioned Outlaw number 5.

After extensive metalwork to the bodyshell, work is currently underway to lower the roofline by around 3 inches, by our skilled metalshop team.
