By the mid-1980's the Fiat group had begun to rationalise it chassis/platforms so that the same body could be used on different Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Lancia models, as is now common practice with most other motor manufacturing groups.
One of the first Fiat group models to pioneer this new platform sharing was the Fiat Croma/Lancia Thema in 1985. As was to be expected the Lancia version sat at the top of the new range, with a sporty Alfa Romeo version just below it. The Thema came with a choice of either a 1995cc four cylinder (petrol), 2849cc V6 or a 2445cc Turbo Diesel.
