Auction Block: 1991 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evo 1 ‘Martini 6’

Jan 11, 2021

Category: Rides

First unveiled at the 1979 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Lancia Delta went from a compact family car to World Rally Champion in just a little over a decade. With each iteration, the plucky Italian hatchback became increasingly capable, gaining upgrades like a powerful turbocharger and effective four-wheel-drive. So successful was the Delta that Lancia built 310 special-edition HF Integrale Evo 1 variants to celebrate the platform’s sixth consecutive title in 1992.

The example you see before you is one such car — number 145 — and with only 16,800 miles on the clock, it’s in near-factory condition. Dubbed the ‘Martini 6,’ it features a red-and-blue striped racing livery set against some stark white paintwork. Elsewhere, you’ll find a bevy of ‘World Rally Champion’ decals and other commemorative emblems; widened wheel arches fore and aft; as well as a set of white rally-inspired rims. Under the hood, it’s powered by a 2L inline-four complete with turbocharger and 16-valve configuration. Mated to a 5-speed manual, it’s good for 210hp, a 5.7s 0-60 sprint, and a 137mph top speed. When you consider that the car has had consistent and comprehensive servicing throughout its lifetime, it makes for a rare chance to own a pristine piece of rally history. It heads to auction on January 21st.
