The Aurelia used the first production V6 engine, a 60° design developed by de Virgilio, a Lancia engineer who worked under Jano which grew from 1.8 L to 2.5 L. It was an all-alloy pushrod design with a single camshaft between the cylinder banks. A hemispherical combustion chamber and inline valves were used. A single Weber 40 carburettor completed the engine.
At the rear was an innovative combination transaxle with the gearbox, clutch, differential, and inboard-mounted drum brakes. The front suspension was a sliding pillar design, with rear semi-trailing arms replaced by a de Dion tube in the Fourth series.

Engine and Transmission
Specifications, details, graphs, pictures and other information regarding the powertrain is placed in this section.
Please make sure to write information of the vehicle's performance in a third-person point of view. This section should include information about the car's acceleration figures, handling, braking, etc.
If using information gathered from Road Test articles from a reputable automotive source, then please make sure to cite the quote.
Warranty options and scheduled maintainence information should be mentioned here.
This section should reference points on safety ratings and features of the vehicle.
Lancia's are known and appreciated for the top quality of their mechanical components. The Aurelia range is no exception to this rule.
No major shortcomings are known if well maintained.
Front sliding pillar suspension needs regular maintenance and the front brakes are efficient if in good order. Wear on the drums can be the cause of many troubles like shimmy in the steering, unequal stopping power left/right etc. The only "flaw" would be the first gear that wears out. It whines when running in 1st gear but "kits" exist to solve this.
ENGINE OIL AND FILTER Every 5000 km or once a year GEARBOX AND DIFF OIL Every 15000 km or every 3 years SLIDING PILLAR OIL Every 5000 Km
Other than that one should be aware that these cars are more than 50 years old and "reliability" then was not the same as it is now. Electrics, rust prevention, maintenance, fragility, useless wipers... combined to a general lack of "how to use" a 50's car (engine warm up, poor brake efficiency, gearbox handling, safety issues etc) are aspects that should be kept in mind if one wants to enjoy the quality of a car like the Aurelia.

Sixth Generation: (YYYY–YYYY)
Power was down to 112 hp for the 1957 sixth series, with increased torque to offset the greater weight of the later car. The sixth series coupés had vent windows, and typically a chrome strip down the hood. They were the most touring oriented of the B20's.
The sixth series B24 convertible was very similar to the fifth series, with some minor differences in trim. Most notably, the fuel tank was in the trunk, not behind the seats as it was in the fourth and fifth series open cars. This change, however, did not apply for the first 150 sixth series cars, which were like the fifth series. The sixth series convertibles also featured different seats than either both earlier cars.
Fifth generation (YYYY–YYYY)
The fifth series coupé, appearing in 1956, was more luxury-oriented. It had a different transaxle (split case), which was more robust and similar to that used in the later Flaminias. The driveshaft was also revised to reduce vibration.
Alongside the fifth series coupés was a revised open car, the B24 convertible. This differed from the earlier B24 Spider, having roll-up windows, better seating position, and a windscreen with vent windows. In mechanical aspects, the B24 convertible was similar to the coupe of the same series.
Fourth generation (YYYY–YYYY)
The fourth series introduced the new de Dion tube rear suspension. The engine was changed from white metal bearings to shell bearings. An open car, the B24 Spider was introduced at this time (1954 to 1955) and was well received. It was similar to the B20 coupé mechanically, with an 8 inch shorter wheelbase than the coupé.
The fourth series cars were the first Aurelias to be available in left-hand drive; fourth series Aurelias were the first ones to be imported to the US in any number.
Third generation (1953–YYYY)
The third series appeared in 1953 with a larger 2451 cc version of the engine. The rear of the car lost the tailfins of the earlier series, but was well resolved in a definitive look for the Aurelia coupe.
Second generation (1952–YYYY)
The second series Aurelia coupe pushed power up to 80 hp from the 1991 cc V6 with a higher compression ratio and repositioned valves. Other changes included better brakes and minor styling tweaks, such as chromed bumpers instead of the aluminium ones used in the earlier car. . A new dashboard featured two larger instrument gauges. The suspension was unchanged from the first series. A new B22 sedan was released in 1952 with dual Webers and a hotter camshaft for 90 hp.
First Generation/Origins (1951–YYYY)
The very first Aurelias were the B10 berlinas (sedans). They used a 1754 cc version of the V6 which produced 56 hp. The B21 was released in 1951 with a larger 1991 cc 70 hp engine. A 2-door B20 GT coupé appeared that same year. It had a shorter wheelbase and a Ghia-designed, Pininfarina-built body. The same 1991 cc engine produced 75 hp in the B20. In all, 500 first series Aurelias were produced.
