A Photo for Sunday: 2002 Lancia Thesis

For a change, here is one not taken on my street.

2002 Lancia Thesis, Goerlitz, Germany.

And across the road there stood a V6 automatic Kappa. The setting is highly appropriate, I think.

It's hard to believe these are 20 years old.

The Kappa is a useful size and pleasantly calm. They have to be acquiring classic status now.

  1. I applaud your choice of holiday destination, Richard.

    Most people in Germany wouldn’t even know where Görlitz is. And the first statement of those who do when raising the topic is usually ‘oh well, it’s in the East, unfortunately’. I know a couple who like to see themselves as being very much into culture and simply adoring Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel. But visiting the city where they shot all those gorgeous building? Daaaahling, that’s in the East!

    1. I very much enjoyed some holidays in the “East” last year and the year before. Lovely places and people indeed, and not so crowded. But I missed Görlitz… and the nice Lancias they have there.

    1. Those seem like quite firm prices.
      Thanks for re-activating the thread. The Kappa looks great in that photo. It was a really handsome example too: black leather trim and tidy alloys.
      The Kappa coupe is still plain
      odd and stays looking odd.
      To want one is understandable: it
      must be one of the last coach-built cars outside the Ferrari/Bentley league.
