With each passing year, a handful of cars forbidden to US enthusiasts become available due to the 25 year importation regulations set by the Department of Transportation, or, as I like to refer to the agency, the No Fun Club. As time goes on, we're seeing some interesting cars find their way to these shores. This Lancia Delta Integrale for sale in Toronto is calling the name of any American who ever dreamed of putting a six time World Rally Champion in their stable.
1987 Lancia Delta Integrale HF 2.0 16V Turbo with 30,800 original miles or 52,000 original km. Yes, “time capsule” with thirty thousand original miles or fifty two thoiusand original km since new! USA legal, titled as a 1987 Lancia Delta. It is more than 25 years old and is exempt from all EPA/DOT regulations and I have a clear Ontario title in my name. Six time World Rally Champion! Do I need to say more? If you ever wanted the greatest rally car of all time, here is your opportunity. This is from my private collection.

Almost $23,000 is a big ask for what is essentially a 25 year old Italian subcompact, but, those who view it that way are missing the point. Consider the recent surge in prices of the E30 BMW M3, another competition marvel of the day. Suddenly this Lancia begins to seem reasonable. These are fast, capable machines that foreshadow Subaru's dominance in WRC and subsequent sales success with the Impreza WRX. With more Integrales finding their way to these shores, parts and service support will no doubt grow, making it just a bit easier to own one of these legendary rally machines.
