1988-1990 LANCIA Thema 8.32 specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Ferrari V8 that was shoehorned into Lancia’s Type Four chassis was not actually assembled by Ferrari. The job of screwing it together was outsourced to Ducati engineers. Although similar to that found in the 308 qv, it was tuned differently to suit the Lancia’s more relaxed driving style. The epic soundtrack and moderate performance were not enough to sell it, and UK sales were dire, with just nine 8.32s officially sold. It did slightly better in Europe, but the killer for this car was the Thema Turbo i.e which was actually quicker in a straight line.
