A very special exhibition of historic Lancia cars has opened at the Pantheon Basel - Forum in Switzerland, where more than forty evocative cars that shaped its rich history can be admired by visitors in the equally stunning surroundings of this complex. This display of the Italian marque's famous "oldtimers" can be viewed until 5th April 2010.

Visitors will be surprised at the forty two Lancia models that have been specially chosen to make up the collection, and most of them are presented in beautiful concours condition. Laid out around the sweeps of the curved deck of the beautiful 'Roundbuilding' of the Pantheon they tell the rich history of this great carmaker.

Heini Rutz, Member of the Executive board of the Lancia Club Suisse, has curated the exibition, individually selecting and organising the cars, most of which are the property of the members' of the Lancia Club Suisse.

From the Lambda all the way to the Thema, the most important Lancia cars from a carmaker that boasts more than a century of innovative history are present at the Pantheon until April, including the emotional Stratos and Delta HF Intergrale. Alongside the many production masterpieces there are also a series of special bodied Lancia models, such as the Aurelia B52, Aprilia Pininfarina Roadster and Augusta Pininfarina Cabriolet for visitors to see and admire in this beautiful setting.

The exhibition demonstrates the strong sign of life of the Lancia marque as a brand new Delta 1.9 DI TurboJet 200 CV has been placed, as a lovely and focused contrast of 85 years of history on, beside the stately Lambdas.

The Pantheon is the most important forum for Oldtimer cars in Switzerland with rotating exhibitions every four months, garaging for privately owned cars and the possibility for professional car restoration in the building. A superb restaurant and the hall for events are also located in the premises.

A special brochure detailing this exhibition is now available with photos and descriptions of all the cars in the exposition. For information about the exhibition and the opening hours visit www.pantheonbasel.ch
