Two fabulous design studies for the Lancia Delta HF Integrale and Ford Fiesta RS hit the web

It is nice to just dream away sometimes. This is one of those times, as what we have here are two extremely interesting design studies. The photos below show two design studies done by some young students during the 2009 edition of the Berman Autostyle competition. Actually, the two design studies turned out to be the winners. The first design study shows the a Ford Fiesta RS that won the prize for the best version of the Fiesta from a representative of Ford and the second one is a Lancia Delta HF Integrale that won the Cover Award Creativity prize.

The Ford Fiesta RS shown in the pictures below might not be just a sweet dream, as Ford did not confirm any plans for a Ford Fiesta RS , nor did it completely deny the option for the future. If the North American automaker would actually decide to develop a sporty version of the Ford Fiesta then it would most likely get its power from one of the new 1.6 liter and 2.0 liter turbocharged engines with direct injection. Who knows, maybe in two or three years, after the economical crisis will be gone, Ford will decide to launch a Ford Fiesta RS.

Things are completely different when it comes to the Lancia Delta HF Integrale design study shown in the pictures below. In the last couple of years, Lancia (which is a sub brand of the Fiat Group) has developed a lot of weird models like the Lancia Ypsilon or the Lancia Thesis. Even if just about one year ago they launched a new Lancia Delta, it seems that it did not have the success they wanted, and now, with Fiat being busy with the takeover of Chrysler and the survival in these hard times, it seems that a sporty version of the Lancia Delta is impossible to be seen coming off the production line anytime soon. The Lancia Delta HF Integrale is famous ever since it participated in the World Rally Championship (WRC for short) and won it six times in a row, from 1987 to 1992.
