For a company that has pretty much dropped off the radar, Lancia is still one of the most loved automobile manufacturers. Legendary cars such as the Stratos, Fulvia, 037 and Integrale all came from the Italian car manufacturer. The Integrale arguably was the last truly great Lancia that was ever made. Now, a stunning 1992 Delta Integrale Martini 5 Evoluzione is up for sale on Bring a Trailer, and this example has just 104 miles on the clock.
A Truly Incredible And Lucky Find
This Delta Integrale has quite an interesting tale. It is one of just 400 Martini 5 Evoluzione examples to celebrate Lancia’s fifth consecutive World Rally Manufacturer's title, made for the 1992 model year. The car was apparently found in the basement of an Italian dealership before it was then bought and imported into the United States in 2018. This special edition is in fact based on the Delta Integrale Evo I, and has Martini Racing inspired stripes down the side of the car and on the hatch as well. The car features box-flared wheel arches, a high-mounted adjustable rear spoiler, unique badging and a vented hood.
More Exterior And Interior Details
There are a few nicer exterior details, such as the white 15-inch Speedline alloy wheels and the Michelin MXX tires. Additional exterior details also include projector headlights and integrated driving lights. Inside the Lancia are Recaro front sport seats and a rear bench, which is nicely trimmed in black synthetic suede and red stitching. A Clarion AM/FM cassette player is a pleasant mod-con, and air conditioning is also a feature of the Integrale. There is currently protective plastic on the door panels and footwells to keep everything in great condition.
Stunning Lancia Power Under The Hood
Under the hood of the Delta Integrale is a turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter DOHC inline-four engine, that the listing says has had a timing belt replaced. The coolant was also flushed, and the engine received an oil change in a service back in 2020. The transmission in the Delta Integrale is a five-speed manual transaxle, and as you will know from its rally pedigree, the Delta Integrale is four-wheel drive with a Ferguson viscous coupling center differential and a Torsen limited-slip rear differential. At the time of writing, the bidding for this inedible survivor stands at $135,000 and that is surely set to climb higher.
