OUTLAW #2

The order for Outlaw 2 quickly followed that of number 1, having been commissioned by a well-known racing driver and car aficionado with an eye for the rare and unusual. Built along the same lines as Outlaw 1, a Lancia Aurelia B2oGT donor car was sourced and a list of bespoke specifications and modifications drawn up, inlcuding a unique dark aubergine colour which suts the car perfectly.

DONOR CAR

The first stage of the process is to find a donor car, a Lancia Aurelia B20GT in need of restoration, to form the basis of the transformation into Outlaw 2.


LOWERED ROOFLINE

The most distinctive feature of the Outlaw project is the lowered roofline which was inspired by the B20GT driven by Giovanni Bracco in the 1951 Carrera Panamericana. This feature is common to all the Outlaws and is part of what makes them unique.

Many hours of detailed metalwork went into lowering the roofline, one of the Outlaw’s most distinctive features, by circa 3 inches
