Lancia Beta Spyder. Which is not at all a spider, but a targa. Designed by Pininfarina, built by Zagato. Nevertheless, who wants to be a Beta tester ?

The company chose the name Beta for a new vehicle to be launched in 1972. The choice of name symbolised a new beginning as it reflected the fact that the company’s founder, Vincenzo Lancia (1881–1937), utilized letters of the Greek alphabet for his early vehicles — such as Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and so on. “Beta” had been used before, for Lancia’s 1908 car and again for a 1953 bus. Lancia had previously utilized the first letter of the Greek alphabet, Alpha, but this was not chosen for the new 1972 Lancia due to the obvious confusion it might cause with Alfa Romeo.

I’m old enough to remember the time when French cars were pretty (when designed by an inspired Pininfarina). Peugeot 504 V6 cabriolet photographed by descampsdavid. Interestingly enough, this car got the same engine as a De Lorean.
