Late last year came news that Fiat?s plans for a relaunch of the Lancia brand in the UK had been put on ice, but that hasn?t stopped the company pushing forward with its product lines.
Next month, Lancia will use the 2009 Geneva Motor Show to reveal the Delta Hardblack and the Delta Executive, along with the 146kW (197hp) DiTurbo engine.
Delta models fitted with the 1.8 litre 146kW DiTurbo engine are capable of pulling down 0-100km/h in 7.4 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 230km/h.
Fuel consumption is respectable, at 7.8 l/100km. CO2 emissions are rated at 185g/km.
The Delta Executive features electronic variable damping suspension, and can be had as an option on other Delta models.
Other features include Diamond-edged alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, and glossy jet-black roof for a stylish, refined look.
The Lancia Delta Hardblack is a satin black show car, and also features the DiTurbo engine. For extra show, the Hardblack features an Alcantara Starlite black interior.
