Widely documented history
Presented as an evolution of the Delta HF 4WD at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1987, the Delta HF Integrale was renewed in some details, both stylistic and mechanical.
The new version was externally recognizable by the enlarged fenders, the new design of bumpers and miniskirts, the front air intakes, and the engine hood and the 15" instead of 14-inch alloy wheels. The improvements made to the mechanical part, concerned suspension, braking system and engine power, a 1995cc engine that went from 165 hp to 185 hp, thanks to a Garrett T3 intercooler turbine and a renewed electronic management.
The Delta Integrale was presented by Lancia with the precise aim of winning the 1988 World Rally Championship, a direct descendant of the Delta HF 4WD, which had triumphed with Kankkunen in the 1987 edition, monopolizing the Brands and Drivers titles.
After repeating both World Rally titles also in 1988, the Delta HF Integrale "8V" (so it was unofficially renamed a posteriori), was further enhanced the following year, thanks to the introduction of the new engine with 4-valve distribution per cylinder. The Delta HF Integrale 16V was officially born.
At the end of his career and in 6 seasons in the World Rally Championship, the spoils collected by Delta HF Integrale in its various evolutions, counted 35 victories and 96 podiums. Before that no car could boast a Palmares of this type.
After all the racing past, this car has been purchased from Burkart S., who commissioned a restoration of the car. Then the car was sold to Milano Racing, then to Mr. Sauzon in France who sold the car to Mr. Thierry (North of Paris) the last owner when Ruote da Sogno bought this rare Lancia Delta.
