Nice Price Or No DiceIs this used car a good deal? You decide!

Wait, what's this? Have you missed Nice Price or Crack Pipe? Well, it's back. So get out your passport and checkbook, because today we've got a six-figure Flaminia, coming to us by way of Switzerland.


We've asked our very own Jalopnik commenter Graverobber to help us out with bringing everyone's favorite choose-your-own-imaginary-destiny-by-way-of-polldaddy-poll feature back to Jalopnik. Let us know what you think in the comments below. —Ed.

You say you want history? You say you want Zagato coachwork? How about triple Webers on a sweet V6? Well then step right up and take a gander at this mostly original 1962 Lancia Flaminia 2.5 3C with Zagato bodywork. The 3C indicates the triple two-barrel Weber induction, which bumped the horsepower by 21 over the single Solex engine. The seller claims that the car spent 12 years in storage in Switzerland, so it should at least come with a trunk full of chocolate. Maybe not, but you can still enjoy the Rubenesque form and double bubble roof line, none the less.

As one of only 152 produced, and with an impeccable lineage, there's no doubt about this car's desirability, but the question remains: is it worth $210,000? Two hundred and ten thousand? That's enough to keep GM afloat an additional 13 minutes. Or, you could buy a giant white truffle — if you were so inclined.

So, what'll it be- a possible future invitation to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, or your own personal giant white truffle?

Oh. Em. Gee.

Instead of weekday Murilee, we get weekday Graverobber? FUCK YEAH. Knowing that we get Murilee on the weekends, that is a completely acceptable substitution.

Kick-ass job, Mr. Robber. I'm so excited right now, I could pee.
