1972: Lombardi presents his latest model, the FL 1. It's a sportscar which is meant for the higher segment of the carmarket. They think they'll make a rather good chance with this car. The car can be fitted with different engines. A prototype is showed at the Autosalon of Turin. Depending on the demand they expected to take the car into a small production of 150 - 200 cars per year. The car is offerd with two different engines: the engine of the Lancia 2000 IE (maximum speed 200 km/h) or a Ford 3 litre V6 (maximum speed 225 km/h).
