This 1976 Lancia
Scorpion, currently owned by Doug Kaufmann, is one of three that were used
in the making of Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo. It is also
likely the only one to still exist. One was destroyed in an
accident, and the other is believed to have also been wrecked, though
there is speculation that it has been totally re-fabricated into a Lancia
Rally 037 replica. This car appears relatively untouched other than
having been refinished, though its original Giselle powder blue paint
still remains under subsequent coats. The car maintains its original
roll bar used in the film and holes used to mount the blank-off headlight
plates are still present. To settle all disputes, the car has its
1976-issued title stating Walt Disney Productions as the owner, as well as
its original license plates. Car has been carefully restored back to
its movie-seen condition.
