This is the incredibly rare Italian Lancia Thema. Try finding another similar! They don’t come on the market that much.Engine is powerful and smooth reminiscent of the Intergrale 16V. No abnormal noises but does have a very slight leak from rocker cover gasket ( new gskt provided). No blue smoke either.
Gearbox operates normally including clutch . No noises from drivetrain.
Bodywork will not disappoint as due to climate and lancias meticulous focus on rustproofing. No record of previous accidents or damage.Do a search Wikipedia regards Lancia Thema. The bright work trims surround for windows are scratched and will require restoration. No water ingress and rubber seals in good order. Metallic blue paintwork contrast well with the beige alcantara interior.
The front fog lamp lens is broken ( hard to find replacement) but still works.
The Thema is not concours showroom condition but is original and usable as an everyday car that goes up in value.
The Alcantara interior is beautiful and the driver’s seat shows wear at the entry surfaces only.
Portuguese inspection technical expired in October 2020 but vehicle has been in storage since then. There is partial service history. Previously owned by director of Portuguese car museum in Porto and prior to that was lancia dealer managers car. Original service book and manual available.
All electrics to my knowledge operate including lights,, electric windows, seats, sunroof, central locking,mirrors etc.
The electric aerial seized but original radio still works. Regas of A/Conditioning needed.
This car was the flagship model for Lancia in its time and staggering performance was on par with Fords Cosworth. The car was very well equipped even for modern day standards.
Although the car originated from Portugal I imported it to Spain and can be viewed/collected in village of Jacarilla near Orihuela, Alicante region. Purchased as an investment but plans have changed due to Brexit. Still Portuguese registered. All legal documents available. comes with 2 original keys.
