Well, i have one;)

And i must say, this car can be driven smoth without noises, like a luxury car.
But, if you want sport, you pass the 4000 rpm barrier and u'll get the best of sound, handling, in other words, u get a really CuoreSportivo.

I can also take 5 people in confort and lot of space. If you want everything in a car, get this. Mine has color like the one on the bottom foto.

U can watch it at:

Well-written VI. I added this Lancia, because fans other producer car may not know that such a exist. For me, this is the last Lancia with sports aspirations.

You are wrong, Ljutica, the coupé is another kind of car than the saloon, you should try one in real life before commenting on its lack of anything; The coupé has a shorter wheelbase, wider rear track, is lowered, has a very stiff chassis, stiffer suspension, and consequently drives like a true luxurious performance car, especially on curvy and demanding roads. Still, it has inherited a lot of the roominess from the saloon, making it a practical, spacious grand tourer. The boot, although 50 L less spacious than the saloon, is higher or deeper due to the taller rear end, and that makes it swallow quite more luggage than you would expect it to do. Besides that, the Maggiora styling, while maybe looking slightly over edge in the late nineties, has matured gracefully trough the years, and makes this car a looker even today, especially in real life. Visually the Coupé looks smaller and smarter than it actually is; very few car designs has such a successful visual betrayal, and while the saloon these days has a rather dated \"nineties\" appearance, the Coupé is somehow fresh, exotic though classic, - in the best meaning of the word. Photographies, for some reason, have never done this design justice, you have to see it and adore it with your own eyes, and if you are really lucky, drive one to truly appreciate this refined, understated Italian late-nineties goddess. And by the way, comparing a Lancia with a Maserati is nothing but silly; they were never meant to compare.

Mini Maserati Ghibli,huh? Hmmm,maybe not after all.
I had a chance to drive ordinary kappa 2.0 turbo and it's soft,comfortable and pulls good,but it never seems to be a great quality car.
