The iconic Lancia Delta Integrale requires little introduction. A formidable and enormously successful rally weapon, it also made a very capable and comfortable road car. With manners suitable for family outings, nights to the opera, spirited weekend drives, or high-speed laps or a legendary racing circuit, the Delta Integrale was an extraordinary machine that could take all these in its stride (in all its evolutions), and it can still hold its head high today. The eight-valve variant utilised a two-litre turbocharged engine producing 185bhp and the world's most sophisticated 4WD system that rocketed the car to 60mph in just 6.6 seconds, on virtually any surface, on its way to a top speed of 133mph.
Manufactured in 1988 in left-hand drive, this 8V Integrale was supplied new to the United Kingdom being first registered on the 14th of January that year. Fitted with the aforementioned 1995cc turbocharged straight-four engine mated to the five-speed manual transmission, ‘E730 DAP’ is finished in Red with Grey cloth interior upholstery. With a recorded mileage of approximately 146,000 kilometers (equating to c.90,000 miles), the Lancia is understood to have been supplied new to the Pentti Airikkala Driving School and has had a total of eight registered keepers, entering current ownership in 2015.
The beneficiary of a comprehensive engine overhaul by Tanc Barratt Italian Car Specialists shortly before the purchase by the vendor, this comprised a new Tanc Barratt cylinder block with forged pistons and steel con-rods along with overhauled cylinder head. A reconditioned turbocharger was supplied by Auto Integrale along with a new steering rack gaiter and brake fettling including rear callipers. Accompanied for sale by a large history file comprising many previous MOT certificates dating back to the early-1990s, the book pack, a large selection of invoices including many from Tanc Barratt and V5C document.
