Logging lots of hours on the red carpet at the 69th Venice Film Festival (http://www.labiennale.org/en/cinema/) and other places aren't stars like Kate Hudson and Spike Lee. It is a new version of Flavia, brought to the world by Italian automaker, Lancia.

The comely convertible (see photos above and below) is not only on the red carpet but the catwalk and in the Lancia Café area. It is almost omnipresent! These are some of the benefits of sponsorship, and Lancia has committed seven years to the VFF and doesn’t appear to be experiencing an itch.

One of the vehicle’s attributes that Lancia is talking up the most is its red Pelle Frau® Pieno Fiore leather seats and armrests created by master craft brand Poltrona Frau. Italians know their leather, and the Lancia Flavia is easy on the eyes for it.

According to Lancia, Flavia has the advantages of a coupe but the sensations of a convertible – read: comfortable (reasonably spacious with decent backseat legroom) and fast for those who like to ride like the wind.

The car has brawn, too – like the regular Flavia – most apparent in a 2.4 liter engine capable of 175 horsepower, a peak torque of 225Nm and a six-speed automatic transmission.

It comes equipped, too, with features that one expects from a 21st century car i.e,. four airbags, latest-generation Abs, multimedia system with navigation capabilities and the much-ballyhoed Boston acoustic sound system.

Lancia has not yet announced when this Flavia will be available for purchase or its price point. As a point of reference, the regular Flavia is 49.900 euros in Europe.
