    Stunning cars. There are a couple of almost exact replicas (possibly built up from spares not sure) that race at the Goodwood Revival most years. You can easily here them coming in a field of Maserati 250Fs and 246 Dino F1 cars!

    Love this car and this era.
    Handmade, baby! My kind of objet d'art.

    I came across this drawing by my son. Looks familiar!

    I'm pretty sure the car you saw at C&C was a replica. The only two surviving originals that exist are in museums in Italy and never run. The other 4 were destroyed by Ferrari. The rest are replicas constructed out of spares that a Lancia employee managed to keep from being shipped off to Ferrari when the works cars were gifted to Enzo in 1955.

    I can confirm that there's no way you saw an original D50 at C&C.
    I wrote a post about the D50 some time ago on my blog, I give few more interesting details.

    Agreed that the ones that are running are replicas. I saw one race at Silverstone 13 years ago and it was really awesome but I just could not get excited knowing that it was not the real deal.
