The Delta Integrale HF 16v was presented at the 1989 Geneva Motorshow. The new version was distinguishable from its predecessor by the raised bonnet centre, which accommodated the new 16 valve engine. Other visible exterior changes included wider wheels and tyres, and new identity badges front and rear.
The torque split was changed to 47% front and 53% rear, to improve the car’s already impressive handling characteristics.
The turbocharged 2-litre Lancia 16v engine was already a powerful, refined performer, but was further developed for the Integrale 16v. Generating 200bhp at 5,500rpm, it can take the car to a maximum speed of 220 km/h (137mph), with acceleration 0–100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 5.5 seconds. These improvements make the road-going version of the Integrale 16v a spirited, reliable and inherently safe car.
The car we have here today is a Lancia Delta 16v with formidable Rally preparation, and is offered at auction with its CSAI electronic passport. The car has raced in Italian rally and Hill Climb races over the last 10 years.
The engine has only about 1,000 kilometres since the last review. The preparation of the car is amazing – a comprehensive list is available in the car’s file.
