Footnotes

  • Owned by FIAT since 1969, Lancia maintained a semblance of independence for a while but gradually its models began to share more and more components with the contemporary FIAT range. Thus the Y10 hatchback, launched at the Geneva Salon in 1985, came with FIAT's economical 999cc 'FIRE' engine in its basic configuration. The other engine options, both displacing 1,049cc, were a normally aspirated 55bhp unit and an 85 horsepower turbo. Its styling, with boxy lines and abruptly chopped off tail, was somewhat controversial but despite its unusual appearance the Y10 boasted a drag coefficient (Cd) of only 0.31, an outstanding achievement for a compact hatchback that enabled the Turbo version to reach a maximum speed of 180km/h (112mph). Subsequent developments included a four-wheel drive variant and engines of 1,108 and 1,301cc. Also badged as an Autobianchi (another FIAT-owned marque) the Y10 was one of Italy's best selling cars of the 1980s, though relatively few were seen in the UK.

    Used by Brin as his everyday transport since he acquired it in 2008, this 1,108cc Lancia Y10 was running well when it was driven into storage circa 2015. Accompanying documentation consists of a V5C document, SORN (2015), and a quantity of expired MoTs suggesting that the recorded mileage of only some 18,000 is genuine. A rare survivor.
