Lancia’s Legendary 037 Is Reborn As A 500HP Carbon Fiber Supercar Stunner

The Lancia 037 marked the end of an era. The mid-engined Group B racer was the last rear-wheel-drive car to win the World Rally Championship in 1983 before AWD vehicles took over and never looked back. Now, an Italian manufacturer called Kimera Automobili is bringing back the spirit of the 037 with their stunning EVO37 modern reimagining.

The Kimera Automobili EVO37 stays true to the bones of the original Lancia, with a mid-engine RWD layout, a five-speed manual transmission, and a 2.1L 4-cylinder engine. Unlike the original, however, the EVO37 puts out 500 horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to modern tuning and the use of both a supercharger and turbocharger. By comparison, the Lancia 037’s supercharged powerplant put out 325 hp and 246 lb.-ft. in its final iteration. The exterior of the EVO37 is also largely reminiscent of the 037, but it’s undergone a modern touch. Many of the sharp angles have been smoothed over, and swaths of exposed carbon fiber appear throughout. In addition to carbon, other modern materials like kevlar, titanium, and aluminum were used in the car’s construction. Just 37 examples of the EVO37 will be built by Kimera Automobili, and the company expects to start delivering them to customers this fall at a price of 480,000 EUR (~$586,000).
