The Chrysler Delta is an interesting car. Launched in Italy as a Lancia back in 2008, it's taken a further two years to make it to the UK in right-hand drive form, but now with an American manufacturer's badge.

So, why has it not returned to the UK as a Lancia? Well, apparently Chrysler didn't want the hassle of relaunching the Italian sporting brand after it left the UK in 1994.
