This gorgeous Lancia Beta rally car is the work of Senator Chinchilla on Flickr. Unfortunately being a Beta meant that it would only be gorgeous briefly, before turning brown and crumbly and then dissolving. Cheap Russian steel (swapped for Fiat technology) was not a wise business deal.
And now, much like the English weather destroys Italian bodywork, we’re off to see English Rugby destroy Italian Rugby in the Six Nations. Check out more pictures of the Senator’s Lancia on Flickr before kick-off.
