1992 Lancia DELTA integrale EVO I

Factory Homologation Special Road Version of Legendary Rally Champion

Awesome AWD Turbo Rally car for the street, rare, exciting, incredible to drive and in great shape.

An excellent example of a true legend in World Rally Competition, this is a Japanese market car that we have just legally imported into the US under the 25-year rule. Rare opportunity to own one of the world's best rally cars ever. Very popular with younger enthusiasts who became familiar with the car digitally on Gran Turismo for Playstation. The real deal lives up to the legend. Amazing fun to drive.

The 1992 EVO 1 version of the Delta Integrale is the final homologation model produced and considered by many to be the best all-around version. This rally homologation model carries a 2.0 liter turbocharged DOHC engine delivering 210 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque through a 5-speed manual transmission to all four wheels. 0 - 60 acceleration is quoted at 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 137mph. Roadholding, agility and overall performance are of a very high order. This is a thrilling car to drive.

This EVO 1 comes from Japan with only 117k kilometers (73k miles), original owner's manual book and comprehensive records. Japan market cars are typically very well maintained due to stringent local regulations and this car is a fine example with a detailed service history highlighted by major services at approximately 2 year intervals from new. All maintenance is up to date, many key components have been replaced. The most recent service was at 71K miles and included: change oil & filter, change brake fluid, change trans oil, new timing belt and tensioner, A/C and alternator belts, new water pump, new rack boots, driveshaft boots, front & rear pads and rotors and full inspection.

The car starts, idles, runs and handles like new and is in overall excellent mechanical condition. Steering is tight, smooth and accurate, the brakes are very sure and strong with a solid pedal. Everything works, no mechanical or electrical issues.

The Madras Blue paint and interior are original and in generally very good condition. The body carries a sticker verifying aftermarket Rust Arrestor undercoating treatment. There is no current rust and no evidence of prior rust repairs, nor any stress cracks in the unibody or exterior panels. Paint is in very good condition and the body is straight and sound with just a few minor chips and scratches. The upholstery is in the original grey Alcantara (note some photos make it appear blue .. it is a neutral grey) in nice shape with the only visible wear to the driver's seat bolster.

The dashboard is in great shape with a full complement of instruments. There is a leather-wrapped Momo steering wheel, and an HKS boost gauge and EVC-S boost controller have been fitted to the steering column. Carbon fiber accents surround the instruments, and a Nakamichi CD player and aftermarket shifter have been installed. Supplemental alloy brace bars are fitted to the B-pillar and across the rear suspension towers.

The turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter DOHC four-cylinder is transversely mounted and sends power to all four wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. The AWD system features a 57/43 torque split, Ferguson viscous coupling, and a Torsen rear differential. The engine has been fitted with an aftermarket airbox, HKS boost controller, and upgraded intercooler plumbing. Running character features a strong and linear torque curve with an exhilarating top end surge and an exciting exhaust note that is distinctly Italian.

Tires are Pirelli P-Zeros in 215.50 size mounted on the attractive alloy wheels. The original space saver spare and tire change kit are included.

An excellent example of a true legend in World Rally Competition. All import paperwork is in order. This car comes with a valid Vermont registration, Vermont plates and a bill of sale. Please note that Vermont does not produce titles for cars that are more than 15 years old. Registration in most states should not be an issue, but please check local regulations.

An incredible driving experience. A very unique and enjoyable car in excellent condition, very well maintained with no known mechanical issues. In Europe the Delta Integrale EVO 1 has earned a good reputation and is generally regarded to be reliable and dependable. Parts availability is quite good and, despite t0he advanced technology, the EVO 1 is considered simple and straightforward to service.

Local inspections welcome - the car is in San Francisco, CA.
