Following their amazing seven years of success in the World Rally Championship for ‘Group A’ cars, which included four drivers titles and six consecutive Manufacturer’s Championships, Lancia decided to release one final limited-edition version of their venerable Delta Integrale.
Named ‘Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II Edizione Finale’, production was limited to just 250 and all were to be finished in Bordeaux Red with narrow yellow and blue stripes running over the bonnet and roof. Influenced by the wildly enthusiastic Japanese ‘Deltisti’, who were inevitably going to be the biggest customers, the standard specification included high-back bucket Reccaro seats, black fabric interior trim, 16” Speedline wheels finished in Anthracite, push-button start, carbon-fibre trim details, Aluminium OMP pedals and passenger footrest, a Momo steering wheel, upgraded engine management to 250bhp, special Eibach springs front and rear and an OMP strut-brace. Each car had a stamped numbered plate next to the gear lever, this particular car being number 092 out of 250. The engine and drivetrain was identical to the final Evo 2, except for the upgraded engine management system but still featured permanent four-wheel drive.
Number 92 was delivered new to Japan in 1995 and many years later, in 2008, was exported to Belgium in 2008 and subsequently on to its only UK-registered keeper in 2009. The car has not been used much since, becoming part of a private collection, stored indoors in ideal purpose-built premises and presents today as it should for a car that has covered just a little over 3,000 miles from new.
In February 2020, the little Lancia was sent to noted Integrale specialists, Walkers Garage Ltd. of Northallerton, North Yorkshire, where the history file reveals that £1,472 was spent on a full service including cambelts, a new battery, new fuel pump and a thorough going through to make sure it was running at optimum level. All old fuel was drained and replaced at this time with new fuel filters fitted as well as new spark plugs and a thorough road test.
Within the car's interesting history file are the original service books with some Japanese invoices, the export paperwork, recent invoices from Walkers and the spare keys.
This is a very rare opportunity to own an example of the ultimate development of the iconic Lancia Integrale. The car is in outstanding order throughout and a real collector's dream so please make arrangements to come to our viewings and see for yourself how special this Final Edition Evo II really is.
