First seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1979, the Lancia Delta Integrale is best known for its domination of the World Rally Championship in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The first Evoluzione cars were built at the end of 1991 and carried on through 1992.
Arriving in June 1993, a further development of the HF Integrale naturally became known as the Evo II and featured an updated version of the 2-liter, 16-valve turbo engine producing a little more power (215 hp) and incorporated a three-way catalyst and a Lambda probe, with everything being run by a new Marelli integrated engine control system.
This Evo II dates from 1993 and naturally is left-hand drive. It’s finished in Monza Red with a beige interior and is showing 74,619 kilometers (46,637 miles).
The bodywork presents very well and the paintwork remains decent and is commensurate with the age of the car. The door shuts and panel gaps look even, the interior is very tidy, the wheels are excellent, and overall this little Evo seems well cared for.
In 2016, Walkers Integrale carried out a major service including cam/balance belts, oil and filters, plugs, air/fuel filters, all four dampers/bump stops, drop links, fuel pump, clean injectors and a new radiator. Also with the car are the stamped service book, MoTs from 1998, the sales advert, a pile of service and maintenance invoices, and the toolkit.
Anyone who has ever driven an Integrale knows how special they are, and this car seems a very honest example with plenty of history and represents an excellent opportunity to experience the sense of invincibility engendered by these talented little Lancias.
