1987 Lancia Other
VIN is European: ZLA831AB000416686Previous Owner: A marketing rep for Martini Rossi and rally Lancia enthusiast who owns a small workshop where he rebuilt Lancia Delta Integrales for pleasure. This is the car he used for rallies and Martini events. He kept it in an overall very good very drivable state with some defects.Originality: This Delta was manufactured in November 1987. It was originally sent to Germany before going to it’s last owner in Poland who removed the engine and replaced the rusty metal panels with clean ones from donor vehicles. The hood and the tailgate were replaced with fiberglass panels for weight savings and the Delta was then painted white and the Martini vinyl livery was applied. The rear seats have been removed but are still available and a safety cage was added. The front seats were replaced with Recaro racing seats and 4 point safety harnesses were added. The dash has been recovered in alcantara material and has been rewired for racing switches and a push button ignition. However it retains everything necessary for everyday driving. There is a kill switch in the glove box that can be locked. The car is fitted with remote power locks on all four doors. The lights turn signals fog lights and wipers all work. The clutch system has been replaced with a steel spring racing clutch and a handbrake lever was added for rally driving. It has an aftermarket blow-off valve..The engine has had recent services by the owner and is said to have 10k km on a rebuild performed in his workshop. This cannot be verified though.Driving experience: This is a race car that's street legal. As soon as you climb into the cockpit this becomes quite apparent. The engine comes to life after flipping on three switches and pushing the red start button. You'll notice the very free flowing exhaust producing a beastly note. Upon takeoff the clutch is very heavy and requires a fine touch to smoothly change gears in low RPM. The fresh Dunlop tires grip extremely well on both wet and dry roads. The car feels planted and precise on the road. As soon as you start climbing the rev range and hit 3300 RPM the turbo spools up and you can feel the G's push you back in the seat. It's geared a little lower for faster acceleration in the rally circuit so zero to sixty happens extremely quickly. When you let off the throttle the car calms down and becomes a normal Integrale smooth on the road and easy to drive. This Delta is a rally car that can be driven to the track raced all day and driven home dirty.The car just went in for a full service.For more pictures:1987 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Martini LiveryI imported this car from Poland.
