1984-1994 LANCIA Thema/Turbo specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Thema was the first of the joint Fiat/Saab Type 4 cars to hit the market, and very stylish it was indeed. The body might have been Giugiaro-generic, but the plush Alcantara-trimmed interior was very inviting. The pick of the range from launch was the two-litre turbo, initially offered in 8v form. The combination of speed and serenity was an appealing one, even if the 165bhp engine resulted in ample torquesteer in the wrong circumstances. Later upgraded with 16v engines, and facelift versions improved the car little by little. Good ones can still be had for little money.
