The Lancia 20/30 HP (Tipo 58), later known as Lancia Epsilon,[a] is a passenger car produced by Italian car manufacturer Lancia between 1911 and 1912. The car was quite similar to the previous 20/30 HP Delta model. In total 357 were made.
Three wheelbase lengths were offered, resulting in a choice of five different models—depending on the desired body style:
- Type A: normal wheelbase, for phaetons, landaulets, limousines and coupés
- Type B: long wheelbase, for phaetons, landaulets and limousines
- Type C: short wheelbase Corsa, for competition two- or three-seaters
- Type D: normal wheelbase, for torpedoes
- Type E: long wheelbase, for torpedoes and cabriolets
The separate body was built on a ladder frame; front and rear there were solid axles on semi-elliptic springs at the front and three-quarter elliptic springs at the rear. The brakes were on the transmission and on the rear wheels. The transmission was a 4-speed gearbox with a multi-plate wet clutch.
