The stand also hosts a Lancia Thesis Sport, the latest evolution of the flagship which combines sportiness and elegance with unique, exclusive styling. The version on show features very refined two-tone bodywork (light grey and dark grey) that enhances the car’s beautiful lines, and 18” spoked alloy wheels that highlight the sporty look of this particular version.
This same impression is conveyed in the interior by the new Frau® red leather upholstery with coordinated finishing elements. The original Thesis Sport is in perfect harmony with the spirit of the Lancia flagship, a luxury saloon that relies on elegance and cutting-edge technology to capture elite motorists.
This is a particular segment made up of a small number of models on which the most important carmakers concentrate the best automotive technology available today. The Thesis Sport is powered by the new 2.4 Multijet 20V engine which, combined with a self-adaptive sequential five-speed automatic transmission, delivers a maximum of 185 bhp at 4000 rpm and torque of 330 Nm at 1750 rpm. With this power pack, the car reaches a top speed of 222 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.7 seconds.
The example on display on the Lancia stand obviously embodies all the strengths of the Thesis model: from the extensive standard safety equipment (ABS with EBD, ESP complete with ASR, 8 airbags) to the spacious, protective luxurious passenger compartment, the navigator with a colour screen, the Bose® Hi-Fi system, and the automatic multi-zone climate system. It is also fitted with an anti-lift volumetric anti-theft system with alarm, and with parking sensors.
