1991 LANCIA DELTA Integrale Evoluzione - £Auction 35000
In order to further improve the handling of the Delta Integrale, Lancia endowed the Evoluzione (1) with a wider track, front and rear, than earlier Deltas and in order to fit this revised track into the bodywork, the already wide wheel arches were extended even further and in the process also became more rounded. The new Integrale retained the four-wheel drive layout with an epicyclic centre diff with torque splitter, a Ferguson designed viscous coupling and a Torsen rear differential. The engine, although technically the same as the earlier 16V cars, was remapped to give 210bhp at 5750rpm in order to compensate for the slight increase in weight and increased frontal area. These improvements were aimed at improving the handling potential of the car and it worked, with the new Integrale being considerably quicker over rally stages on both asphalt and gravel.This particular left-hand drive, 1991 Lancia Delta Integrale is an Evoluzione I model that was imported into the UK by a previous owner fromItaly in 1998 and the original Italian paperwork, including the Lancia Certificate of Originality and sales invoice are still with the car. Our vendor purchased the car in 2002 with 76,000km (47Kmiles) indicated and that figure is now 99,000kms. The car was fully resprayed in its original Monza Red in 2003 and still retains a really good shine with only a tiny touch up to the base of one door required in 2016. The interior in Grey Alcantara is also excellent with only some wear to the driver's seat bolster indicating the car's age.The panel fit is excellent, as are the wheels and brightwork and overall the car presents superbly.However, the Integrale Evo 1 was never about cosmetics, it was designed to go and handle and stop and our enthusiastic vendor has made sure it does just that. The engine, gearbox, and transmission were fully rebuilt in 2010 at 92,000kms and during his ownership, the car has benefitted from a number of mechanical modifications.
