On the 5th of September Lancia will be announcing its future plans at the Biennale del Cinema di Venezia. And, according to the Autoinsight blog, it will be showing a concept car that anticipates the new Lancia Delta HPE.
The picture above might be a photoshop, but it's fairly plausible. The Lancia Delta HPE should be based on a stretched Fiat Bravo platform and it should be about 4.50 meters long. The engines should include three turbo-charged gasoline engines (1.4 Turbo with 120 and 150 ps, 1.8 Turbo with 190 ps) and two turbo-diesel engines (1.6 with 120 ps and 2.0 with 165 ps).
The new Delta should be on the market by the second half of 2008

Honda will finally stop teasing us when it unveils the production-ready version of the Civic Type-R at the Paris motor show in September. (It's expected to look very similar to the concept pictured here.)
(from GM Press Release) Chevrolet will demonstrate that “yellow is the new black” when it comes to style at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), Thursday, August 31. As the “official vehicle” of the VMAs, Chevrolet will provide a customized fleet of 60 E85 compatible SUVs to transport talent to the Awards telecast at Radio City Music Hall and provide production support in and around New York City.
Forget the claims of rival luxury cars having more technology than it took to send a man to the Moon, the new Lexus LS range could send a whole tribe to far end of the galaxy.
The LS makes its European debut at the Paris motor show in September, where we'll get a butcher's at the LS460 and also the LS600h hybrid model.
High on the LS's agenda is safety, with an Advanced Obstacle Detection System than can pick up on potential dangers ahead.
The Emergency Steering Assist speeds up the steering's response if it senses a sudden input from the driver.
Then there's the Driver Monitoring System to help keep the driver's eyes on the road.
Put all this together and you have the Lexus Pre-Crash Safety package, which also predicts if an accident is unavoidable and puts the headrests in the optimum position to reduce whiplash.
It also activates all of the above systems to help the driver avoid the accident if at all possible.
One small step for Lexus, one giant leap for driver-kind.
