The Paris Show also features a Lancia Thesis Sport that combines sportiness and elegance in a unique, exclusive manner. The version exhibited features a ‘b-colore' body (light grey and dark grey) customised with the logo of the 63rd Venice International Film Festival: the vehicle was part of the Lancia fleet made available to the organisation for ferrying film stars and directors to the festival.
Firstly, the vehicle exterior is graced by a very chic metallic grey body that further emphasises the shape of the Lancia flagship. This particular version is given an even sportier look by 18' alloys in an eye-catching spoked design.
The same look continues inside, in the form of a red Frau® leather trim with coordinated finish. This original Thesis Sport embodies the spirit of the Lancia flagship, a luxury saloon that attracts élite motorists with its style and cutting-edge technology. This specific segment includes a select number of cars that have been chosen by the biggest manufacturers to showcase the cream of contemporary in-car technology.
The Thesis Sport is equipped with a powerful 2.4 Multijet 20 valve engine that, when combined with a five speed sequential self-adaptive automatic transmission, develops a power of 185 bhp at 4000 rpm and a torque of 330 Nm at 1750 rpm. This power unit can propel the car to a top speed of 222 km/h and accelerate it from 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds. The car on the Lancia stand naturally offers all the innate attributes of the Thesis model: an extremely long list of standard safety features (ABS with EBD, ESP with ASR, 8 airbags), a luxurious, roomy and protective passenger compartment containing equipment such as a sophisticated Connect Nav+ Infotelematic system, Bose Hi-Fi system, multizone automatic climate control system and Comfort front seats (ventilated, heated, adaptive with backrest/cushion massage) that represent the state-of-the-art as far as comfort and ergonomics are concerned. Other attractions include an antilift volume-sensing antitheft system with alarm and parking sensors.Source - Lancia
