From its 1965 inception, the Lancia Fulvia rapidly became the car to beat in everything from rallying to circuit racing and hillclimbing. Works Fulvia''s were used for ten seasons between 1965 and 1974, racking up countless wins on events as diverse as the Daytona 24 Hours, the Safari Rally and the Targa Florio. Not only was the Fulvia an adaptable machine to practically any motor sport application, it was also highly competitive in a variety of configurations. 1.2, 1.3 and 1.6-litre engines were all used successfully whilst Fulvia''s could be specified for either Group 3 *or* the more highly tuned Group 4 class''s. With Grand Touring and Sport variants manufactured too, the only rival able to boast such a diverse array of competition success was the Porsche 911.
