The (Chrysler) Lancia Thema

CL

 

 

 

 

 

A VERY BRIEF ‘STATE OF THE NATION’

  • In most European countries … Chrysler vehicles are sold under the Lancia brand
  • The  Chrysler brand is set to change, once more, in Europe
  • Chrysler shall be departing the UK (Although Jeep shall remain), whilst …
  • … Lancia will be leaving Austria … and …
  • … possibly the rest of Europe except for Italy
  • In keeping with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEOSergio Marchionne‘s promise, Lancia is slowly withdrawing to Italy

 

THE LANCIA THEMA

  • At one time, the Thema would have been described as a flagship
  • That was when the world still had two very different approaches to car design …
    • elegance in Europe … and …
    • substance in America
  • The Thema combines both these approaches to create true harmony between style and power design and character

stile_1_new

 

  • The Lancia Thema brand is ostensibly famous outside of its native Italy for the 3.0-liter Ferrari V8 that the top end Thema borrowed from the Ferrari 308
  • Close watchers of the auto industry have been aware of the Chrysler 300-based, Lancia Thema for quite a while
  • Click here or on the Dilawri-TV to watch and learn more of this beauty … oh, it’s in Italian too BTW!
