Lancia may not get all the love compared to other manufacturers of its ilk, but when they rolled out a special edition Flavia at the Venice Film Festival, we have to give it the recognition it deserves.
Called the Flavia Red Carpet Special Edition, the unique build was the result of a collaboration between Lancia and Poltrona Frau.
There’s not much in the way of exterior modifications for the Flavia Red Carpet, but inside, the posh red leather interior has the unmistakable quality and distinct stamp of the Italian interior, furniture design and leather upholstery company.

Back then, Lancia turned to Frau to dress up the interior of the legendary Thema 8.32 and since then, the two companies have become brothers-in-arms in the auto industry.
Under the hood of the Flavia Red Carpet is a 2.4-liter engine that produces 170 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. There aren’t any performance modifications, but when it comes to being the star of the show, the Flavia Red Carpet Special Edition sits high and mighty at the Venice Film Festival.

The Thesis, Lancia’s new flagship, is our family interpretation of the big prestige saloon theme. In other words, typically Italian craftsmanship and the ability to give a new face to cutting edge engineering.
Well-being is assured, for example, by using top-quality materials not merely for their appearance but also for the sensory reactions they arouse. On a more hi-tech note, the information and telematic technology on board the Lancia Thesis meets its occupants desires with immediacy (...)
