Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione II
1994 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 2, 2.0L Turbo 215hp 4WD, finished in Rosso Monza over a beautiful alcantara tan interior. The odometer shows just 36,543km with just two owners from new. Chassis number ZLA831AB000582137. In superb condition having spent the majority of its life in sunnier climes and the original books and keys are all present.
A gentlemen purchased the car new from Lancia concessionaire Corsauto in Palmero, Sicily in December 1994, and the car remained with him in Southern Italy for the next 20 years of its life before being acquired by an Italian dealer and then moving onto a classic car specialist in Germany. The current owner, a classic car enthusiast, acquired the car from this specialist with 36,284km showing and bought it into Sweden in 2017. Unfortunately upon trying to register the car here it became entangled in an insolvency disupute involving the Italian dealer and it took the new owner 3 years, hours of correspondence and even visits and inspections by the police before it could be officially imported and registered in Sweden in 2020.
During this period the car was tucked away safely in a heated garage, where it has remained since being registered, taken out for occasional drives but not getting the use it deserves due to sharing a garage with an aircooled 911 which the owner has found himself using more.
The Lancia Delta is one of the most revered and collectable rally homologations of all time. The original HF 4WD was based around the HF Turbo road car but gained four-wheel drive technology from the Group B monster S4. On the stages of the World Rally Championship the car was competitive out of the gate and became the winningest rally car of all time claiming six Manufacturers Championships, four Drivers Titles, and 46 outright rally wins. It received much acclaim on the road also, consistently praised by journalists for it’s agility, sharp steering and tenacious grip - a great recipe for a back road blaster. The Evo II was the last version of the car, featuring uprated power (215hp) and a new ECU, and additional handling and appearance tweaks over the earlier Evo I.
This is a very fine, original example of a highly collectable car, ready for the next enthusiast to enjoy or collector to cherish.
