2006 Lancia Delta HPE Concept

Already having debuted at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month, the Lancia Delta HPE concept appears to point the way to a new production Delta. Lancia says the car’s engine bay will swallow a number of different powerplants–gasoline or diesel–hooked to automatic or six-speed manual transmissions. The funky four-door hatchback has a sliding second row of seating as well as the joint Fiat (Lancia’s parent company)/Microsoft Blue&Me system, which features Bluetooth and USB connectivity for cell phones and portable music players.
