Lancia Thema engines.
The new rear wheel-drive of the 2012 Lancia Thema erases the traditional car scheme. The consequence of this choice is the use of larger front tires, that might conflict with the old mechanic system front engine/front-wheel drive. Lancia’s new model will comes with three engines: the V6 petrol Pentastar 3.6-liter 292 hp matched to the eight-gear automatic gearbox and the 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel VM 190 hp and 224 hp, both with automatic 5 speed transmission. The petrol version V6 Pentastar 3.6-liter 292 hp, can get 230 km/h and starts from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds.
