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 Alcantara interior is beautiful and the driver’s seat shows wear at the entry surfaces only.

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.
