There are few cars that combine so many of my favorite things quite like the Lancia Delta Integrale. Born to race, the Delta successfully combined elements of the E30 M3, Golf GTi and Audi Quattro to create its own legacy. The box flares, all wheel drive and turbocharged engine made nearly the perfect hot hatch. Though the Golf Rallye is sought after by the Volkswagen faithful, the reality is that the Delta Integrale was a better car - better proportioned, faster, and significantly more successful where it was intended to race - the World Rally Championship. The Integrale picked up where the legendary Quattro had started and swept to victory in nearly all of the races that it entered. As a result of its successes on the WRC circuit, the many different roadgoing versions of the Delta Integrale were very much welcomed by enthusiasts on the road:
THE ITALIAN LEGEND : LANCIA DELTA HF INTEGRALE 1989
VIN N. : ZLA831AB000449099
THE LANCIA DELTA INTEGRALE WAS INTRODUCED IN THE RALLY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN 1988, AND IMMEDIATELY WAS THE ABSOLUTE RULER. THE SUPREMACY OF THE DELTA INTO RALLIES DROVE TO 6 CONSECUTIVE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
Lancia designed the HF Integrale to incorporate the advanced technical features of the Delta HF 4WD, and to address its shortcomings as a rally car. The result is a stylish, luxurious yet utterly practical five door hatchback with impeccable road manners, but capable of a blistering 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration in just 6.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 133 mph (214 km/h).
At the heart of the 8-valve HF Integrale is a 2-litre 4-cylinder fuel injected twin cam engine, fitted with contra-rotating balancing shafts. This version incorporated the following improvements over the HF 4WD: New valves, valve seats and water pump, larger water and oil radiators, more powerful cooling fan and bigger air cleaner. A larger capacity Garrett T3 turbocharger with improved air flow and bigger inter-cooler to aid volumetric efficiency, together with revised settings for the electronic injection/ignition control unit and a knock sensor, boost power output to 185 bhp (DIN) (136 kW) at 5300 rpm and maximum torque of 31 m·kgf (304 N·m, 224 lbf·ft) at 3500 rpm.

For me, while the Quattro is a desirable car and I do love my Audi very much, the Lancia has always been an object of desire for me. It flies a bit lower on the radar than some of the other Group A entrants, and being newer many of the examples are still affordable; though with the E30 M3 bringing homologated race cars of this generation up in value it remains to be seen how long these classic Italian super-hot hatches will stay affordable. My suggestion is to grab one while you can!
Want to do your best impersonation of a World Rally Championship driver but not too keen on your average Subaru or Mitsubishi Evo? You’re in luck, because the 25 year exemption rule has given leeway to those wishing to import one of the most legendary rally cars of all time: the Lancia Delta Integrale. This is the car that won Lancia the WRC Manufacturer’s Title six times over. This particular Integrale for sale in the UK has the less powerful 8 valve turbocharged engine and is only one year away from when it will be legal to import to the US.

For those looking for Delta Integrale ownership at a lower cost, the 8V models are a good place to start, as the later model 16V and Evo 1 and 2 models are gaining ground in the collector car market. While there are a few of these rally heroes that have made their way to Canada, most people who have imported them aren't ready to quite part with them just yet. While a few of these Integrales were produced in right-hand drive, most were left-hand drive, even if they were sold in right-hand drive markets. So for those seeking out a bargain for a right-hand drive car, it would be worth your while to seek one out in the British Isles, as long as it is devoid of any rust issues.
With every passing year, more and more cool motors become eligible for importation as they pass the 25 year rule imposed by tyrannical US bureaucrats. One car that enthusiasts on these shores have been waiting for and just started to gain access to is the Lancia Delta Integrale. While this 1990 16V Evo model for sale in the UK isn't quite eligible yet, it gives us fans of this rally champ a taste of what's to come two years from now.

Here is a unique opportunity to have one of the first road legal Evoluzione's in the US!
The legendary Lancia Delta HF integrale 16v, finished in Nero Metallic 802 with a Sage green Alcantara Recaro interior.
**VIN NO. ZLA831AB000501475**
The car was originally registered in the UK on May 18th 1990 & gradually rusted away with our salty roads. Around 13 years ago, the owner decided to restore it with everything Evolution including a rot free body shell.
It drives fantastically well with no smoke, dramas or nasty rattles. It has never been involved in an accident & is stock. Also present is the original hand book, service book & lots of old bills / receipts. The car has never had any welding repairs & is still solid. This is a genuine sale & the car is located in central England. You will need to organise your own shipper & getting it to the docks but I will help, however I can. If you have any questions then feel free to send me a message. Thank you.
The Evo I and II are the Integrales that bring the most cash these days, as they are the last of the breed and feature styling and performance enhancements not seen on earlier Integrales. The asking price here is about in line with what Evos are bringing abroad, however, factor in the shipping and customs fees if this was legal to import and it becomes a pricier proposition. Perhaps a few intrepid enthusiasts may go to the trouble of bringing these rally beasts over once the 25 year threshold is reached, but once here, you know they won't be cheap.
As years go by, I'm always wondering what the next tasty bit of forbidden automotive fruit may be on the horizon and legal for importation to the US once it reaches 25 years old. One car that stands above the rest, for me, is the Lancia Delta Integrale. It might not appear like anything more special than a four-door econobox, but this car is a rally champion, many times over. The ultimate Integrale was the Integrale Evo 2. It featured a 2.0 liter, turbocharged engine producing 212 horsepower and 232 lb ft of torque. New alloy wheels, a Momo steering wheel and Alcantara seating helped to round off package of improvements included with the Evo 2.
This Evo 2 for sale in the United Kingdom looks sublime in its dark blue color accentuates those boxed fender flares just so, adding to the mystique of this car being wolf in sheep's clothing.
The Lancia Delta Integrale was and still is the hero to thousands, the Holy Grail, and a genuine slayer of giants. This is the car that buried the Audi Quattro, both in the World Rally Championship and on the open road. In 1986 it rolled out a remarkable 10 wins. There were only 11 races!
The first Evolution cars rolled of the production line at the end of 1991 and through 1992. These were to be the final homologation cars for the highly successful Lancia Rally Team. In order to improve the handling, the Evolution 1 had a wider track front and rear than its predecessors which resulted in the already boxed arches getting even wider. The front strut top mounts were also raised to generate more grip, which resulted in the need for a strut brace to control these new forces.
External changes included, a redesigned bonnet with new air slats and new grilles in the front bumper to further assist engine cooling, an adjustable roof spoiler to aid rear down force and really emphasize the cars aggressive lines, and new 5 stud alloy wheel derived from the rally cars.
The new Integrale retained the legendary four wheel drive layout, an epicyclic centre diff with torque splitter (47% to front, 53% to rear), Ferguson viscous coupling and Torsen rear differential. The 16V engine was carried forward from the earlier car and benefited from a re-map to increase power to 210 bhp. The results gave the desired improvements on the rally circuits with the new cars clocking times over 5% faster on both tarmac and gravel sections.
Presented in June 1993, the second Evolution version of the Delta HF Integrale featured an updated version of the 2-litre 16-valve turbo with a new water cooled Garrett turbocharger. A catalyst was also fitted to lower emissions but overall the power was increased to 215bhp. In order to underline the even more advanced engineering and performance of the 1993 version, the new Integrale was also given a cosmetic and functional face-lift including body coloured roof moldings, improved air intake grilles, an aluminum fuel cap and a red painted cylinder head. Inside the car got a new leather trimmed three spoke MOMO steering wheel and the standard Recaro seats were upholstered in beige Alcantara with diagonal stitching.
Like James Dean, the Integrale lived fast and died young. When Lancia turned off the life support in 1994, it too was at the height of its powers and there is no doubt nations wept.

This Evo 2 looks stunning in its deep Lord blue glossy paint. With its muscular arches and roof spoiler it really looks every part the 80's rally champion. The bumpers have recently been repainted to eradicate any stone chips and while not 100% perfect the rest of the body is presented to a good standard. The underside of the car is very solid and well kept with no damage or corrosion.
The 80's angular dashboard is awash with dials and gauges to keep the driver fully informed. Despite its reputation for slightly suspect build quality the materials feel good and it is nicely finished with matching alcantara seats, door cards and roof lining, it is also surprisingly free from annoying squeaks and rattles. The Recaro seats feel very supportive and provide an excellent driving position with the adjustable Momo steering wheel. There is some light bobbling on the bolsters of the seats but they still feel firm and supportive. None of the plastic trim is damaged, the electrics work as they should and the car still has its original Lancia over-mats.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
There is a good history file showing that the mechanics have been well maintained over the years, major work to the engine include a full rebuild at Zagato Lancia in 2008 at a cost of over £4,000. When this was done all the engine and drive belts were replaced along with a new clutch and flywheel.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The boxed arches are filled with the correct 16" rally derived alloy wheels which have all recently been professionally refurbished to an excellent standard by Lepsons in Gillingham. The front tyres are nearly new with just under 8mm of tread and the backs are about half worn with 4-5mm.
This Evo 2 was first registered in Italy in 1995 before being imported to the UK in 2001. While in Italy it was serviced at a Lancia dealer which is fully stamped in the original service book, there are also quite a few Italian service and parts receipts and a copy of the original registration document.
Since arriving in the UK in 2001 the car has been in the possession of the same owner. Throughout this period the car has been serviced at a couple of different Lancia specialists and all the invoices have been kept in the history file.
The car also has its original Italian owners pack with the service book, owners manual, spare key and the instruction book for the JVC tape player.
Supplied with a valuable car specific number plate - 'D5 LTA'
The Evo 2 is the most desirable of all Integrales, and their prices are reflective of that status. The seller is asking almost $40,000 for this car, which is certainly an eye watering sum. I'd suspect once these cars start legally trickling over to the US, considering inflation, we probably won't be too off from that figure if a clean car like this could be sourced. Like the E30 BMW M3, the Integrale Evo 2 seems to be a modern day legend that is quickly becoming a pipe dream for collectors of more modest means.
Even though it was never sold in the US, the Lancia Delta is fairly well known here amongst enthusiasts. This is in no small part due to its six World Rally Championships. A fairly unassuming vehicle, the Delta mixes turbocharged power with four-wheel drive capability to create a versatile, practical compact hatchback that could shame many sports cars in its day. Early Delta Integrales are now legal to import to the US, and this black one for sale in Modena, Italy is calling my name from afar...
Lancia Delta HF Integrale 8V, ASI. 09/1988, 134,121 km, service regularly at Lancia shops. Gun-metal gray with gray interior Missoni multi color alcantara upholstery. Car completely original, already registered ASI and registerable to Historic Lancia Register. Full options: central locking, power windows, sunroof, 15" alloy wheels. Plates and original documents. Car ASI therefore enjoys all the tax benefits of an historic vehicle (stamp 25 Euro), reduced insurance and transfer of ownership facilitated.
With just over 80,000 miles, the seller is asking the equivalent of $12,600. If this could be bargained down to around $10,000 to give a bit of space for shipping and importation costs for a US enthusiast, you would have one heck of a ride to show up with at the next Cars & Coffee event. Not only that, this is a practical classic that you could use with no worries in rain, sleet or snow.
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!

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.
One of the cars at the top of my wish list to import is the Lancia Delta Integrale. With earlier models of this rally legend legal to import, I am now awaiting the day when the later Evo models will be welcomed within US borders. While this Integrale is not an Evo nor 25 years old, it already resides in North America and is a remarkably well kept, low mileage example. Those enthusiasts living in Canada or for any US enthusiast who may be able to figure out how to federalize this car should take note.
I am offering one of the best 100% factory original 1991 Lancia Delta Integrale 16V with 28,413 original miles. Yes, twenty eight thousand original miles since new!

INTERIOR: All original, factory Recaro leather interior. What can I say? Again, let the photos speak for themselves!
I am sure I forgot to mention other stuff that was done, please ask me any questions that you have.
WHY I BOUGHT IT?
To the best of my knowledge and from the Integrale I have ever seen, this is the best unmolested original 1991 Lancia Delta Integrale 16V, just the engine compartment alone speaks volumes of its condition. No black tar or black paint to cover up the flaws like all the others I have seen. It is as the day it came out of the factory.
WHY AM I SELLING IT?
I bought an Aston Martin and need to sell some of my precious toys. The asking price is very reasonable, after all, you are buying as new, lowest mileage, unmolested Integrale that should be a part of a rally collection.
This 1991 Lancia Delta Integrale comes with a clean Canadian title. I will assist the buyer in shipping and can arrange delivery to the USA/Canada or anywhere in the world at the buyer's expense. I encourage you to come and see this Integrale for yourself. I do not want to mislead anyone to its condition and my standards may be different than yours.
These early 90s, pre Evo Integrales tend average around $15,000 to $20,000 USD for examples in decent nick with under 100,000 miles. I would go out on a limb and say that given this Integrale is one of a few in North America, the asking price is worth it, given you will be avoiding shipping and customs fees. A tempting piece of (currently) forbidden fruit for US enthusiasts, but if you have a place to store this until it's legal in 2016, this would be a great investment and a fun piece of performance motoring history.
