Indeed, it's not enough.
Finally, Lancia sells well only in Italy.

Hopefully the new Ypsilon will help, but i think they need a "different" car out there to improve their image. A funky sports car or something, maybe something like the Audi TT

They have to make an heir of the Fluvia for example. But, now, they will see the results of the new Y and wait. If they're good, Lancia will surely do new beautiful models, the successors of the Beta and Delta, maybe a new Integrale.
Though, we'll have to wait at least 5 years before being able to see a new Lancia (except the Y)... or their banquerout

haha... you can be one of those rich guys who resurrects a company and then watches all his money go down the drain!
Thats what always seems to happen to enthusiasts who resurrect car companies. Hopefully it wont come to that for Lancia, not happen to you or any motoring enthusiast!

Lybra

Lybra is exquisite visually refined decent and stylish appealing to inner virtue of design.

It appeals not to substance of turning head, but to profound and secure eloquent drive in space.

However, one must utter lack of praise where Lybra amply deserves.
Diesel engines are to loud and can barely pass Euro 2, this remark alone is tragedy.

2.0 engine with roots from Dedra is hardly economical if one considers aspects of acceleration horsepower and general economy.
Most of all, 41 meters of braking is very disappointing indeed.
Interior is without peers, Alcantara Eco choice for those who would rather keep 5 skins where they belong...on cows.

I saw a Lybra 2.0 Intensa grey/black with alcantara and leither, GPS, grey alloy wheels, etc. yesterday when I went to Fiat-Alfa-Lancia to look for a 156 or a 147.... I'm thinking to buy this car now Very nice !... but very expensive, almost 30 000 Ä (US$32 000 - £20 000) !

FIAT is not giving Lancia enough of the green stuff to play around with- hence the ancient engines and crude glorified-FIAT look to them..........


Lancia have talent- but FIAT Spa only care about FIAT and Alfa Romeo- sorta sad really- when you think of the legendary cars they have created..............

Buy Lybra 2.0

Stefanel

You should wait for Lybra ( if you really want to take one ), 2.0 engine can not even pass Euro 3 and only thing to with this is would be to install LPG Gas in place of spare tire.

With latest fly-sequent gas install you lose only 2% of acceleration!
If only raw 2.0 Lybra...wait for a half year at the most.
Lancia is in serious drop of sales everywhere and facelift and new modern (from Thesis) 2liter turbo (Euro IV) is just around the corner.

The Lybra is expensive in 2.0 Intensa and the 2.0 is too powerfull for my insurance as I'm only 19 and have my driving licence since April 2002.
But the 156 1.6 TS 120 is perfect, I'm in love with it ! and the Alfa will be sold easyer than a Lybra. If I can get a 1.6 Distinctive, I will be happy happy !!!!

Absolutely right.

Alfa has a modern latest generation engine (real world economy -not like Lybra), not to mention even greater (although firmer on back) drive and nothing to Pagani Zonda corners like Alfa.

However I think 1.8 would be better choice, price is insignificantly higher buy that would also cover better equipment. (in some countries serial Bose system)

I'd like to take the 1.8 but again I'm only 19 and I have 25% of "malus" because of an accident I had in Belgium... 6 days after I got my driving licence (I crashed my Golf III with a Twingo !). So my insurance doesn't accept the 1.8 TS 144hp.
However, the 1.6 TS has (in France) the same equipment as the 1.8. And since 2002, you can get the Progression or Distinctive versions either on the 1.6 or the 1.8, the Distinctive has the cruise control, the hi-fi Bose system, the leither, 16' alloy wheels, etc. etc.
The 1.6 Distinctive is my dream, but I have to see how much money I'll have at the end of this year when I'll change my Delta
Volken : where do you live ? Is the A6 your car ?
