Between 1987 and 1992, the Lanica Delta Integrale utterly dominated its branch of motor sport, winning 46 rallies and six consecutive World Rally Championships outright. In order to keep the rally car at the sharp end of the results table, the road car went through a number of iterations with each more potent than the last.
The second 4WD version of the Delta, the Integrale HF 16v, was introduced at the 1989 Geneva motor show and was an instant success on the rally circuit, claiming victory in the San Remo Rally of that year. The raised bonnet now housed a new 2.0 litre turbocharged 16v engine dispensing 200bhp and a 0-62mph of 5.7 seconds. The 4WD system had been tweaked so that 53% of the power was delivered to the widened rear wheels and paired with the more responsive Garrett T3 turbocharger. This makes the Integrale a true drivers machine which delivers a huge amount of feel and feedback that has made them irresistible from the very beginning.
This Delta HF 16v Integrale is finished in white and is presented in generally good condition. This car comes to the sale with its Italian registration and is ready to be used by its next Delta enthusiast.
