Lancia Thema 8.32

Pic 1: Lancia Thema 8.32

In South East Asia,
Lancia is a little known car manufacturer. This Italian car manufacturer makes amazing cars notably the Lancia Delta Integrale before the company closed its factory doors; and was bought by Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A.

Being a rally fan when I was young, I was mesmerized by images of flying Delta Integrale on rallies. They are up there on the pedestal alongside "super-rally" cars like the Audi Quattro.

But have you heard of the Lancia
Thema 8.32? Lancia Stratos maybe yes but a Thema? *scratches head*

The Thema 8.32 has a very unique feature, it has an electronic rear spoiler! Check out the below video showing it off. The Thema is powered by a 2927 cc Ferrari V8 powerplant! Now ain't that amazing!

It is interesting that the electronic rear spoiler was in adoption so early whilst most of us here would only associate it with cars like the Porsche 911, Caymen, Boxster, Audi TT, etc....

Check this video of how it functions....

The R34 kinda look good without a rear spoiler. Now if only someone is mad enough to procure the boot off a Lancia Thema 8.32 and retrofit in the spoiler mechanism. Then you'll have the best of both worlds. LOL :P

  1. Special feature is always a surprise when it comes to Nissan. People just can't resist the elegance and durability that it offers. That's why I have a collection of Nissan cars. So, I would say, buy Nissan and experience the comfort and style that it brings.
