This 2000 Lancia Kappa sedan is a cautionary tale. There is a common belief (shared by myself) that all Italian cars are beautiful objects, shaped by direct descendants of Donatello and Michelangelo. These chosen few go by the names of Pininfarina, Zagato, Bertone, Giugiaro and Ghia. Their designs are the final word in automotive style, a designation blessed by the Pope himself.
Yet, look at this Lancia Kappa. It is terrible. The owner describes it as a "rare Italian beauty" and while one of those words ring true, its birthdate in Italy is the problem. The 90's gave us some dreadful looking Italian sedans. The Alfa Romeo 75 (Milano) and 164. The Maserati Quattroporte IV. The Lancia Thema and this Kappa. I would much rather have the Volvo 850 that shared the same automatic gearbox as the Kappa. Sure they are both boring boxes, but the Volvo is at home in beige trousers. An ugly Italian car is just sad.
BUT, if you are the type of person that doesn't care about all that, and wants to spend W210 Mercedes E55 money on something that is "comfy, has lots of room, and classy curves"...have we got the car in Poland for you.
