This is how a decent car ends its days.
Whoever last owned this car really should have gone for a Vectra or Mondeo. The original alloys probably corroded and needed to be replaced with something sympathetic. You can put jokey wheels on an old Mondeo as they are blank canvas. These wheels are a custom paint job, I think. One does not customise a Lancia. Perhaps the last owner considered the disjunction of motorsport style colours and the Kappa’s formality amusing, like wearing runners with a suit.
I saw this about two months ago. The seller had it as a bulk trade item. It’ll be broken for spares.
The interior has a quite wonderful blue velour, almost certainly the last large car to offer this kind of comfortable ambience.
I’d be keen to test one of these. There aren’t many reviews available and none are recent. The Kappa has an intriguing five-cylinder engine which could be had with a turbo. It performed quite well. It would offer a lot more interest than the four-pot 318’s people go for without thinking. My expectation is that’s a “professional” vehicle that’s quietly capable, easy to manoeuvre and able to cover distance with no effort. If the 406 had been so pleasant inside as this it would have been perfect. Instead they went for a design of screaming anonymity.
