What a lovely Lancia, only 44k miles on the clock too.
The Lancia Delta is a small family car produced by Italian automobile manufacturer Lancia in three generations. The first generation produced between 1979 and 1994, the second generation from 1993 to 1999, and the third generation from 2008 to 2014.
The Delta was first shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1979. It dominated the World Rally Championship during the late 1980s and early 1990s however the homologation requirements of Group A regulations meant marketing road-going versions of these competition cars, hence the Turbocharged Lancia Delta HF Integrale 4WD as here. Despite the fact that the 8v Integrale had dominated the 1988 World Rally Championship, Lancia knew that further development and more power were required to keep the car competitive with its newer rivals. Accordingly the 16v Integrale appeared a short time later and made a winning debut on the 1989 San Remo Rally.
This beautifully presented 16v Integrale has only been registered to Meridian Modena in the UK although was originally delivered by Official Lancia dealer, Portelet Garage to Mr Labresse in Jersey on 22nd February. Included with the vehicle is the original book pack complete with manuals and a comprehensive service record with no less than 22 stamps. The interior of the car is tidy and presents particularly well. Sitting on its original 15″ refurbished alloy wheels the whole car looks fabulous, documenting a new replacement engine/clutch and radiator change in 2003 (63,505) by the local Ferrari dealer. Superb to drive and immensely quick even by today’s standards..
Currently reading what we believe to be a genuine 71,179 km (44000 miles) on the odometer, this superb 16v Turbocharged Integrale provides a fantastic but affordable entry into ownership of a true rally icon.
