What a lot of car for the money as they say. Am sorely tempted and love the interior. If it was RHD I'm sure i'd be biting his arm off!

Overall I don't think that we missed much post Lancia's withdrawal from the RHD markets, but this was clearly one of the exceptions.

Now that is tempting, even if it is the "miserable" 16v turbo S1 version. Bank on the engine going bang at some point but very tempting

Actually that came across as a bit miserable and stupid. I think the 16v version is perhaps a wiser choice than the 20v in that it may be more easily maintained - but belts and bearings are essential!

Still sorely tempted!

And me, anyone know who it belongs to as the number plate isn't visible, I thought it might have been the ex Adam Jefferson car that I almost bought about 7 years ago, but I don't think it had that colour interior.

OK I will own up!! It used to belong to me, the chap who is selling it is the person I sold it to about 3 years ago.
Bit strange that the photo he is using in the ad is one I took of it in France before I sold it, and it is supposed to have had a respray since then??
Here's another photo from when it was mine, I can't remember what the registration number is now as I obviously kept my personalised one. Must admit it is one of those cars that I would like to own again.

The truth will out!
Funny about the photos, as the Kappa I looked at was advertised showing the photos taken 3-4 years and a hefty dose of mileage before, one of the reasons I didn't go for it, as by that time it wasn't a true reflection of the condition.

Like mine, Adam's was a 20vt - and he had an almost white cream leather interior. And ours are Black Storm metallic. Distingustingly cheap though. And anyone worried about where the steering wheel is, is missing out big time. I haven't bought a RHD car since 1998 and the last car I bought was ordered new in the UK as LHD because I just prefer to sit that side now

I have mailed the seller a couple of times and await some up to date pictures. If no one else snaps it up I possibly will - which means along with the 3.0 Thema SW I will soon be single again.  Now, can anyone assist in some duplicitous scheme whereby I can justify all this to an totally un understanding other half??!!

Could be time to get that de-humidified barn with the attic conversion! lol

If you want me to have a look at it for you I'm only around 20 miles away.

Thanks Matt. May well take you up on that. However, no recent photos available, only ones of when Ade had it which is a while ago now. The engine management light is on, although seller says it is intermittent and has done it pretty much since he bought it. I know these things can often cry wolf but even if nothing would be annoying having the damn check light on all the time. Not sure. Need it like a hole in the head but it does appeal still.
