Photos of the 1935 Lurani Nibbio

In 1935, VIII Count of Calvenzano of Italy, Giovanni Lurani made the "Nibbio" with a 495 ccm V2 engine by Guzzi and body by Carrozzeria Riva. On November 5, 1935, he set land speed records for the I class (350 to 500 ccm engines) on the Autostrada between Firenze and Lucca, on the stretch between Autopaschio and Lucca. It became the first 500cc engined car to break the 100mph barrier.

In 1939 the car was modified with an 1100cc MG engine and again in 1947, modified, now with a 250cc super-charged MG engine and called “Gerolamo” all to compete in different classes.

Here below is a set of beautiful photos of the 1935 Lurani Nibbio.
