The Lancia Aurelia is one of the most famous cars of this Italian marque. From the original sporting streamlined coupe, a Spider version was born in the mid-‘50s, later replaced by the Aurelia Convertible. Both cars are among the most beloved classics, however there is a large price difference between the two cars. That raises questions – most importantly: Why is the price difference so large?
