Just got back from Italy, which I drove from south to north, every mile of which I wished to be in the 928!

Anyway, here's a quick in-motion pic of an S model shark with a pretty wild paint job. Sorry for the sole snapshot, but I was struggling to get close enough to it in the tiny 1.2L Lancia diesel I was driving!

Coool pic.
Nicely done paint job. Wonder what the colors signify.
Like how they echoed the B-pillar swoop.

Guess you're flogging that 1.2 liter diesel.
3500 redline?

Drove a 1.1 liter Fiat ages ago in Europe.
Engine displacement the size of a soda pop bottle. What a hoot.

Ernest,
Yeah, that sucker took a beating, alright! I knocked out about 2400K in two weeks, and was always flat out (just about!). I was surprised that peak torque seemed to be around 3500rpm as you say, but that it would rev up to about 4500rpm pretty easily.

Here's another pic of the pursuit; though blurry, it does show the speedo in the Lancia at 150... okay, kph! I could squeeze her on the flats for 160kph, but that's it!!

Hmmm... I don't like this at all... I neither like the colors chosen, nor the way the stripes flow, as they do not really follow the B pillar very closely. I think this is a clear example of more is not always better.

LHD in Itay?

I'm guessing center console.

Uh...perhaps you're thinking of England? (It's okay, lots of us do! :cheers: )

Stripes don't bother me a whole lot...guess when you're in Rome (as you were)...

However, is that side skirt normal? Can't tell if this is an S or S4, but it looks "added on" to me. Could the stripes be part of a racing color, perhaps?

Is that Starski or Hutchski?

The german Torino! thats the first thing i thought of when i saw it.
Looks in great shape though :thumbup:
A unique find, thats for sure!

Whats the scrolling/lettering on the corner of the red stripe?

Not sure what you mean by that, as all countries on the European continent drive on the right and subsequently have Left Hand Drive cars. The Lancia pictured here has its instruments in the middle of the dash, above the center consols - a weird trend for vans and some smaller cars in Europe that I don't understand. Maybe it's cheaper to make both LHD and RHD versions with a such arragement? (one mold for the dash only)

bbs alloys cant have been cheap and the sideskirt is smoothed very nicely into the bodywork, looks professional. starsky and hutch was my first thought also!

heinrich 05-17-2005 03:21 AM

I think Saturn is also doing it now. :rolleyes:

That's an 86.5 or earlier, judging by the second pic...

Definitely an S, not S4. Check out the painted front spoiler.
