Rare Ex-Diplomatic 1997 Lancia Kappa Coupe Going Under The Hammer

A very rare Lancia Kappa, an ex diplomatic car from Poland is going to auction with Classic Car Auctions (CCA) in their sale on the 25th May.

The Lancia Kappa was an executive car produced by the Italian car maker,  it replaced the Thema as Lancia’s flagship model in 1994. Sharing its platform with the Alfa Romeo 166 and was available as a saloon, estate or coupe. The Kappa was only available in left hand drive as Lancia pulled out of right hand drive markets after the demise of the Thema.

This rather unusual 1997 Lancia Kappa offered through CCA is a very rare turbo coupe, fitted with the Integrale engine. This was Lancia’s flagship car of the nineties. It has been owned it for the past year with its current owner, previously it was a diplomatic car in Poland prior to coming to the UK in 2005. Having had an engine rebuild at 173,000 km. and now has 237,000km on the clock, this car comes with all books, manuals, tools, spare keys, a fully stamped book to 165,428km plus all bills for the engine rebuild and servicing. Offered at no reserve, it’s a fantastic opportunity to acquire a very rare car.

With no reserve it is a relative unknown what this Lancia will fetch, certainly it could make a very interesting and unusual addition to a petrol heads car collection.
