Successor to the game-changing 037, Lancia’s Delta HF Evoluzione is the single most successful car in the history of rally competition. As such, surviving examples now represent some of the most sought-after vehicles of both the Group A and Group B rallying eras. And this pristine 1992 specimen is no exception, standing as one of the very few Evo-spec models ever built.
Responsible for an unparalleled six constructors championships, the Delta Evo was built by Lancia’s HF — short for “high fidelity” — race department. The car is constructed around a 25CrMo4 steel monocoque ZLA 831 ABO chassis that’s fitted with a full internal roll-cage, draped in steel bodywork with extended wheel arches, and mated to a rally-grade Bilstein suspension setup. Under the hood, the Delta packed a 2.0-liter forced-induction inline-four that’s boosted via a Garrett turbocharger and mated to a sequential six-speed transmission.
Inside, the Italian-built car’s fully-gutted race-spec cabin boasts Sparco seats with Sabelt harnesses, a custom carbon dash, and an onboard full-sized spare wheel. The entire vehicle comes adorned in the iconic white, blue, and red Martini Racing livery complete with sponsor logos — the same paint job worn by Lancia’s Group A and B-era racers. Other noteworthy elements include Brembo brakes, rally wheels with Pirelli tires and front aero disc covers crafted from carbon fiber, angle-adjustable airfoil, rolled rear mud flaps, and a rear-mounted FIA-spec fuel-cell.
