The Lancia 2000 was based on the Lancia Flavia which had been built since autumn 1960 . With one difference (and according to the name), only the 2.0-liter engine was offered as a carburetor (115 hp) and injection (125 hp).
With the design of the 2000 sedan, the Flavia line was continued from November 1970 and emphasized the Lancia tradition since the Aurelia with its radiator grille . It was created in the Lancia styling department under the direction of Pietro Castagnero, who also designed the Fulvia . The interior was luxurious with velor fabrics and wood inlays in the dashboard.
A standard, horizontally sliding curtain in the rear symbolized discretion, and air conditioning was available as an option. The 2000 now had power steering and the 2.0 liter engine as standard. The vehicle was driven on the front wheels.
The quality of workmanship and the elaboration of many details corresponded to the Lancia standard as well as the chassis. The typical Lancia boxer engine with two central camshafts was considered to have a long service life and mileage over 300,000 km was normal.
From spring 1972 the carburettor engine was fitted with a D-Jetronic from Bosch and made 125 hp. Despite its nominally low engine output, the sedan offered good performance, not least because of the gear ratio used.
With a wheelbase of 2650 mm, the sedans were 4620 mm long, 1610 mm wide and 1440 mm high and weighed 1230 kg.
14,500 copies of the 2000 were made, 5,500 of which were equipped with the Bosch D-Jetronic.
The Lancia 2000 Coupé was designed by Pininfarina and presented in April 1971. Compared to the Flavia Coupé, the front, rear and interior have been changed. The rear end in the so-called dovetail design, which later also featured on the Coupé of the Lancia Gamma , was particularly striking . The engine first had a carburetor, then a mechanical injection system from Kugelfischer .
In the spring of 1972 Lancia presented an HF version of the coupé in Geneva with the instruments of the Ferrari Daytona , a motor with the Bosch D-Jetronic and super duplex brakes from Girling / Lucas.
The 2000 Coupé HF, which was only produced in 1200 copies, is today among brand connoisseurs as one of the most beautiful and best-made models from Lancia.
With a wheelbase of 2480 mm, the coupés were 4555 mm long, 1605 mm wide and 1340 mm high and weighed 1150 kg.
In December 1974 Lancia stopped production of the 2000 series. In March 1976 the successor model Gamma was presented.
