Description

By: Pete Davies .

This book covers all Lambretta models build in Italy 1947 - 1971.

An in-depth look at the world’s finest scooter, from the Model A to the GP 200. The Lambretta story doesn’t end there though, with the focus moving onto machines prepared and built by Lambretta Concessionaires. The book ends with a look at the main British dealer specials of the 1960s.

Lambretta - "the world's finest scooter" - was created to mobilise postwar Italy, but became a major success story worldwide. Launched by the humble Model A of 1947, the scooter boom of the 1950s ensured that 'Lambretta' became a household name. During the 1960s, the Lambretta was not only a hugely popular means of transport, but also a machine that could be tuned and raced in time and reliability trials. British dealers produced a number of `specials' to satisfy the British Lambretisti's desire for speed and performance, and who can forget machines like the Supertune Rallye?

This book provides a unique record of these dealer modified machines, as well as documenting standard Italian-built machines in year-by-year, model-by-model detail.

Despite the Innocenti factory closing its doors in 1971, the Lambretta scooter has to this day maintained its place as an iconic brand within scooter culture.
