1984 LANCIA BETA COUPE MANUAL
A lovely example of the Lancia Beta coupe, presenting in metallic silver with black and blue sports leather seats.
The Lancia Beta (Type 828) was an entry-level luxury car produced by Italian car manufacturer Lancia from 1972 to 1984. It was the first new model introduced by Lancia after it had been taken over by Fiat in 1969.
The Beta was made in several body styles, namely 4-door fastback saloon (Beta Berlina), 4-door three-box, notchback saloon (Beta Trevi), 2-door coupé (Beta Coupé), 2-door Targa (Beta Spider), 3-door estate (Beta HPE); a mid-engined sports car was also sold under the Beta name, the Lancia Beta Monte Carlo.
Powered by a 2.0 Litre 4 cylinder DOHC engine, it produced when new 85Kw and 176Nm of power and torque, delivered to the front wheels via a 5 speed manual gearbox. Performance claimed at the time was 0-100kph in 9.5 secs and a top speed near 190kph.
When released, the Beta coupe was praised for it's sporty performance and in particular, brilliant road holding capabilities. The 5 speed transverse manual gear box together with independent McPherson strut suspension, rack & pinion steering, 4 wheel disc braking and Weber carburation, makes for a low centre of gravity car and with great road manners.
