The following pictures are taken from the book "Lancia ß Montecarlo (Scorpion)" by Giancarlo Cometta and Giorgio Pozzi published by Fox Motors in 1992. This book includes (in italian) the production story of the Montecarlo, the different models, a buyer's guide, the racing history and the activities of the italian registro Montecarlo (not existing for a while but reborn recently). The whole thing is illustrated with many interesting and unique pictures, some of them shown here. Unfortunately it isn't available any more, but sometimes one can get one used.
