This is the first official promo video for the new Lancia Thema, the European version of the 2011 Chrysler 300 which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show last week. As the footage shows, the Lancia Thema does not hide its origins, and is described as offering ‘luxury, peace and pleasure’.
The engine options available for the new Lancia Thema include a 3.6-litre V6 petrol producing 292 HP and 353 Nm of torque and a 3.0-litre V6 diesel which can either produce 190 HP or 224 HP. The petrol plant uses an eight-speed automatic transmission while the diesel features a five-speed automatic.
As you can imagine, the most capable version is the petrol V6 which sprints from nought to 100 Km/h in 7.2 seconds and is able to hit a top speed of 230 Km/h. Fuel consumption figures are also pretty decent, as this new sedan with American roots requires 8.3-litres of fuel per 100 Km and has CO2 emissions of 199 g/Km.
