      Jointly-developed with Poltrona Frau, the unique model features a white exterior and Pelle Frau Pieno Fiore leather upholstery.

      There doesn't appear to be any other changes, but the model is nicely equipped with a Boston Acoustic audio system and a Uconnect infotainment system with GPS navigation.

      Power is provided by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 170 HP (125 kW). It is connected exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission.

      I don't know enough about Lancia's current situation to know if it should be insulted to have this particularly mediocre car rebadged a Lancia.

      I guess they had some extra money in the badge engineering budget so they engineered a bigger badge for the side

      The good Lancia name has been soiled with a 200 convertible.

      Imported from Detroit.

      Lancia have been making crap cars for the last few years, this isn't entirely out of their league.

      One of those companies that the cars look okay in pictures, but terrible in person.

      If it's her, she has a kid with Matt Bellamy from Muse, who apparently being a man doesn't wear high heels.

      Lancia 300 in the background is much more fitting. Gussied up 2.4/auto Sebring? Yawn.

      I feel embarrassed. You know how much Europeans must laugh at us for being responsible for cars like that.

      Lancia Flavia (which sounds like a womans genitalia) = Chrysler 200 Convertible
      Maserati TC = Chrysler Lebaron



      Who's next, Chrysler?
      Something something darkside..

      Thank you...

      While it seems to be an okay car, and I love white cars with red leather seats, this is just not right. I sometimes think Lancia should just go the way of the dodo

      The old Flavia (and Flaminia) wasn't much of a looker, but still... The Flaminia Zagato on the other hand...
