Very nice, good and rare Thema turbo 16v. Apart from the 8.32, you don’t see the red colour often (the car was once repainted in a shade slightly darker than the original red metallic), but especially the interior is what makes this Thema unique. Beautiful brown Poltrona Frau leather upholstery, very chic wooden Nardi steering wheel and gear stick, real wood on the doors and centre console and all of the plastic parts in the interior have a very rare dark brown shade instead of the standard black colour. All in all a very beautiful looking car.
In the seven years that I’ve owned the car, a lot of maintenance was performed among others:
- All brake calipers
- Timing belt and multi belt with accessories
- All of the struts, shock absorbers and springs
- Strut bearings (front)
- Support arms and rubbers (front)
- Drive shaft sleeve (front)
- Reaction rod (rear)
- Idle controller
- Window frame (rear)
- 4 New (Hankook Ventus Prime) tyres
- Mid muffler mounted
- Starter motor revised
- Auxiliary and head clutch cylinder replaced
So the car drives very well. Very fast, comfortable and relatively fuel efficient - also compared to modern day standards. The exterior is very neat apart from some small traces of wear. Some years ago, the rims were powder-coated and they are virtually immaculate. Rust is virtually absent, first traces of corrosion at one of the sills was treated four years ago.
What will be included with the car: a set of original alloy rims (weathered, need to be treated), lots of the rare brown interior parts, decorative trims for the sills and a number of smaller parts.
The car can be viewed and picked up in Almelo, the Netherlands.
