I like this one, thanks for posting. Is there an English language version?

"This very rare Lancia Thema sedan with only 11,469 kilometres in its almost unused original condition and original paint is new to the range.

It is one of a total of 27 vehicles built only to order (19 first series like this one, 7 second series and one in the third series).
According to research by Italian specialists, only 17 of these vehicles still exist.

Like the Thema 8.32, the Limousine was made by hand in the Borgo San Paolo plant in Turin, and the base vehicle was extended by 30cm. The surrounding decorative lines (here gold and silver) were applied by hand.
Even after 33 years, the car still has the appearance of a new car, especially the scent of the wonderful individually adjustable leather stools by Poltrona Frau intoxicates the senses.
Everything works and the car leaves you feeling completely relaxed after driving on the motorway.

Additional features of this custom-made product included the individually adjustable rear seats, including leather document pockets on the front seats, reading lamps, preparation for a C-network telephone, etc.
With the 6-cylinder PRV engine you are sufficiently motorized, the car never tempts you to race, always just to glide comfortably.
This limousine in the wonderful colour "blu scuro" was built in 1987 and in 1988 registered for the FIAT AUTO SPA. FIAT probably used the car to transport higher-ranking employees and guests of the group.
The car later went into the hands of an Italian collector who always kept the car in good working order and sold it last year.
All tools, 2 keys, the board folder with the extra operating instructions for the additional features of the sedan, the original brochure and the matching original dust cover with Lancia emblem are of course on board.
This rarity is sold with German H approval and fresh service on behalf of my customer.

Please note that an appointment is required for viewing the vehicles by phone at + 49-151-22657205 or by e-mail at

We are looking forward to your visit!"

It is a very nice car in superb condition! What is surprising to me is that it is fitted with a manual gearbox (5-Speed), while all first series 6V with the PRV engine had a ZF 3-Speed automatic. I suspect that because it was special order, you could request manual, although I do not see the purpose, for what must have been a chauffeur driven car.
I drove an early Thema 6V for 4 years and 80'000 km, from 1994 to 1998. Although decried because of its non-Lancia engine (PRV) and automatic gearbox, it was a quick and comfortable car, ideal for long distances. Also very usable in the winter, when comparable Mercedes and BMW had a tendency to slide off the snow covered road. My 6V had all the luxury fittings, including the dark blue Poltrona frau leather and electric everything, so the pictures of this Limousine rang a bell: tempi passati!

When I visited the Lancia collection in 2004 we looked at one of these that was Mr Agnelli's own vehicle, it was unusual in that while it had leather in the front for the chauffeur, the rear seats were upholstered in blue velour.
Martin Willems had one for sale a number of years ago, that hung around for a long time, at one point I seriously considered buying it as it was something like 10,000, but I lost interest when I realised that it was too long for my garage.
However I do have a copy of the brochure as shown.
