|In stock now is this superb 1991 Lancia Delta Integrale. Initially an Italian car, then Austria and coming to the UK in 1998 the car has covered 133700 kms from new, the equivalent of 83,000 miles.|
The car has a superb service history with sheafs of old invoices.
Since coming to the UK the car has had a lot of work done. The most recent work includes a full engine rebuild with new cylinder head, belts, stainless competition manifold, stainless exhaust, gearbox and diff oil changes coming to £4580 and a clutch and flywheel replacement at £1380 both at 131802 kms by well respected Integrale specialist Walkers Garage of Northallerton. Walkers also changed the belts again earlier this year at 133388 kms. A lovely file of invoices and MOTs accompanies the car together with printed copies of the handbook and service manuals.
The car came to us as a part exchange from an enthusiast who sadly didn't have time to do the car justice. We will prepare and warranty the car just like any of our Porsches.
The first Evoluzione cars were built at the end of 1991 and through 1992. These were to be the final homologation cars for the Lancia Rally Team; the Catalytic Evoluzione II was never rallied by the factory.
In order to improve the handling, the Evoluzione I had a wider track front and rear than earlier Deltas. In order to enclose this track in the bodywork, the wide arches were extended even further and in the process also became more rounded. The wings were now made in a single pressing, whereas previously they had been fabricated. The front strut top mounts were also raised in height in the quest for more grip: this then necessitated a front strut brace to control the forces thus generated.
External changes included: new grilles in the front bumper to improve the air intake for engine compartment cooling; a redesigned bonnet (hood) with new lateral air slats to further assist underbonnet ventilation; an adjustable roof spoiler above the tailgate to assist in competition and to emphasise the cars sporty lines; new five-bolt (stud) wheels derived from the rally cars (stronger than the previous design); and finally, the rear of the car was changed with only one exhaust pipe now showing.
No changes to the tried and trusted chassis configuration: MacPherson-type independent suspension at front with lower wishbones;
segmented dampers with a brace between the strut tops;
MacPherson-type independent suspension at rear with transverse rods;
longitudinal transversal reaction struts;
disc brakes on all wheels, with double piston calipers at the front;
floating calipers at the rear;
split crossover hydraulic circuit with power brake and brake power modulator on rear wheels;
Bosch ABS as standard;
rack and pinion steering with servo assistance;
The new Integrale retained the four wheel drive layout: an epicyclic centre diff with torque splitter (47% to front, 53% to rear), Ferguson viscous coupling and Torsen rear differential.
The engine, although technically the same as the earlier 16V cars, was remapped to give 210 bhp (157 kW) at 5750 rpm in order to compensate for the slight increase in weight and increased frontal area. This kept the performance figures virtually unchanged.
The above improvements were aimed at, and did change, the cars' handling potential, with the new car being able to travel 5-6% faster over rally sections both tarmac and gravel. The result was even greater driver confidence when driving in normal road conditions.
Interior trim was now Grey Alcantara as standard, covering the same Recaro seats as fitted to the earlier 16V cars; leather and air conditioning were offered as options. The interior was finished with a new anotomic grip gear lever and leather-covered Momo steering wheel.

Here at Specialist Cars of Malton we ensure our cars are the best quality cars in the country, this attention to detail has seen us voted Independent Porsche Sales Garage of the Year by 911UK members three years running!
We start off by picking the best cars for stock, of the 3 or 4 cars we get offered every day we buy only the best one or two a month.
Upon sale each and every car is taken to our workshops where it goes through our thorough 74 point check to make sure everything works as it should and is in good condition. Next the car is given a major service and the service book stamped accordingly. We carry out a 4 wheel alignment on the cars and an aircon service on cars with airconditioning. The car will then go to a local independent MOT station for a year's MOT. We tax the car for a year and fill the fuel tank.
Next the cars go to our team of professional detailers who spend up to a week preparing the car cosmetically. Any stonechips are removed, the wheels refurbed if necessary and the wheel hubs are painted. The seats are removed and cleaned. Next the car is detailed using Zymol professional products to give a long lasting lustre.
