Description

The Lancia Delta was a successful car sold by Lancia from 1979 to 1994 and was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The first Evoluzione cars were built at the end of 1991 and through 1992, these were to be the final Homologation cars for the Rally Team, the Catalytic Evoluzione II was never to be rallied by the Factory.

In order to improve the handling, the vehicles had a wider track front and rear, to enclose this track in the bodywork the wide arches were extended even further, in the process they also became more rounded and the wings were made in a single pressing, previously they had been fabricated. The front strut top mounts were also raised in the quest for more grip this then required a front strut brace to control the forces thus generated. The new Integrale retained the four wheel drive layout: – epicyclic centre diff with torque splitter (47% to front, 53% to rear) and Ferguson viscous coupling, – Torsen rear differential. The engine though technically the same 16V, was remapped to give 210 bhp at 5750 rpm to compensate for the cars slight increase in weight and frontal area, this kept the performance figures virtually unchanged. The above improvements were aimed at and did change the cars’ handling potential, the car was able to travel 5-6% faster on the rally sections, both on tarmac and gravel and thus, give even greater confidence to the driver when driven in normal road conditions.

External changes included: new grilles in the front bumper to improve the air intake for engine compartment cooling, the bonnet was also redesigned and new lateral air slats assisted this better ventilation. An adjustable roof spoiler was added above the tailgate to assist in competition and to emphasise the cars sporty lines. New 5 bolt wheels derived from the rally cars were added, these are stronger than the previous wheels. Finally the rear view of the car changed with only one exhaust pipe now showing. Interior trim was now Grey Alcantara as standard covering the same Recaro seats as in the 16V cars, Leather and Air Conditioning was offered, as an option. The interior was finished with a new anotomic grip gear lever and leather covered Momo steering wheel.
