The Lancia Delta Group A is a Group A rally car built for the Martini Lancia by Lancia to compete in the World Rally Championship. It is based upon the Lancia Delta road car and replaced the Lancia Delta S4. The car was introduced for the 1987 World Rally Championship season and dominated the World Rally Championship, scoring 46 WRC victories overall and winning the constructors’ championship a record six times in a row from 1987 to 1992, in addition to drivers’ championship titles for Juha Kankkunen (1987 and 1991) and Miki Biasion (1988 and 1989), making Lancia the most successful marque in the history of the WRC and the Delta the most successful car.
This Lancia Delta 16v was prepared in Group A configuration by Sergio Martinetto (ex-engineer Reparto Corse Lancia HF) with carbon shaft and close ratio gearbox. The car is eligible to be used at historic rallies. Finished in the red Martini livery it is described by the vendor as being in generally very good condition.
A fantastic car, one of the most iconic ever built and a legend in the history of rally.
