Likely to revive the Aurelia badge with a new version of the original convertible (pictured), Lancia will build a new coupe-convertible model to rival cars like the Jaguar XK and Lexus SC430 in both performance and price. Picking up the same mechanicals as the GranTurismo, the new Aurelia will feature a V8 powertrain with drive sent to the rear wheels. Early reports suggest the car will make its debut within the next 18 months, possibly at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
Joining the Aurelia will be a new version of the legendary Delta based on Fiat’s Bravo hatch. Last year, Fiat released a concept version of the Lancia Delta that was co developed with Magna-Steyr in Austria. The car is expected to be launched next year with a range of petrol and diesel engines ranging from 1.4 to 2.0L.
