The Lancia Delta Integrale – An Insight
The Lancia Delta was first unveiled at the 1979 Frankfurt Motor Show and is best known for its World Rally Championship (WRC) career in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when it won the WRC constructors’ championship for a record six times successively from 1987 to 1992. The unrivalled performance and durability of the Delta made it a cult classic in an instant.
Production of the first-generation Delta began in 1979 and the car was voted European Car of the Year in 1980. A special Delta HF Integrale variant was released in 1987. The Integrale was of four-wheel drive configuration with a five-speed, turbocharged 2-litre petrol engine, initially an 8-valve and later revised as a 16-valve. Although part of the UK Lancia range, the Integrale was only released as left-hand drive – aftermarket right-hand drive conversions were available but most had undesirably low-geared steering. Production of the first-generation Delta ended in 1994, with a total of 44,296 Integrales manufactured.
