You Can Own This Factory Works Lancia 037 Evo 2 Group B Rally Race Car

Nov 17, 2020

Category: Rides

Created to compete in the then-new Group B class, the Lancia 037 was a mid-engined rally racer, born out of a collaborative effort between Dallara, Pininfarina, and Abarth and overseen by Lancia’s Chief Engineer, Sergio Limone. Successor to the Stratos, the 037—which was the last RWD car to win the Group B WRC constructors championship—is now recognized as one of the most iconic and significant machines of the early Group B era, with surviving specimens fetching small fortunes.

Despite the immense rarity of the 037, a shockingly pristine example has recently surfaced for sale in the car’s native Italy. At the heart of the rally car was a supercharged, Abarth-developed, 1,995cc, longitudinally-mounted four-banger that was originally carbureted before later receiving fuel-injection and being bored out to 2,111cc’s to create the 325hp Evo 2-spec in preparation for the 1984 season. The car’s Dallara-designed chassis was shrouded in Pininfarina-made bodywork with carbon interior panels, too. Wearing a period-correct Camel Pirelli livery, this specific for-sale 1985 Lancia 037 Evo 2 Group B Rally Car can be found at elite Italian dealership, Autoclass Cars. Pricing is only available upon request, though it’s worth noting other 037 Evo 2 Group B racers have sold at auction in recent years for upwards of $500,000.
