What started as a sharp five-door Giorgetto Giugiaro design in 1979 quickly became a legendary rally car. The Delta started life as a front-wheel drive sedan, was transformed into the HF Integrale with four wheel drive and a 2.0 liter turbocharged Lampredi engine. Torsen differentials, wide flares and a performance oriented interior marked the Integrale as something special.
Lancia backed up all this muscle by winning 46 WRC events and a total of SIX world championships in a row, from 1987-1992. Future Group B rally legends Miki Biasion and Juha Kankkunen both winning two titles each.
This particular example is a 1992 Integrale HF 16 valve, with a few minor modifications including a full coilover suspension with adjustable ride height, 17” EVO wheels and a carbon fiber factory group A rear wing. Yes, the attitude of the wing is correct, copying the factory Monte Carlo winning car. The car was originally a Japanese delivery car, then to Canada and finally in the States. The Integrale is an absolute blast to drive, but don’t take my word for it, read the vast number of road tests or watch videos online. Most journalists would agree that it is the ultimate hot hatch.
This 16v is an interim model, replaced shortly after 1992 with the EVO 1 and 2 versions. EVO’s added an additional 15 HP and even wider flares. Thanks for having a look, hope you enjoy the view as much as I enjoy driving it!
