2009 Lancia Delta Di Turbo Jet, the Anticrisis Luxury Car
The 1.8l Di Turbo Jet petrol direct injection engine produces no less than 200 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque, enough to make the Delta jump to 100 km/hour in 7.4 seconds (a bit slow, we'd say, but given the car's size, acceptable). The top speed of the new Delta stands at 230 km/hour (143 mph).
What we found interesting in the specs of the new engine is the fuel consumption rating: 7.8l/100 km (30.1 mpg). On the other hand, CO2 emissions may give tree huggers nightmares, as it releases 185g of CO2 into the atmosphere. Enough to meet Euro 5 homologation standards though.
Otherwise, the new Delta employs all the technologies of today: electronic suspensions with a variable damping system, a new Sportronic 6-gear automatic transmission with steering wheel controls and the "Magic Parking" semi-automatic parking system.
For those who enjoy a more technical approach, we list below the specifications of the new Delta 1.8l engine:

- Bore x stroke (mm): 83X80.5
- Displacement (cc): 1742

- CE peak torque: 320 Nm from 1,400 to 3,750 rpm
- Emission standard: Euro 5
- Timing system (control): belt, twin overhead camshaft with double phase transformer.
