1991 Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V
The 16V Integrale was developed for rallying & introduced at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show, and made a winning debut on the San Remo Rally.
This model is distinguished by a raised centre line bonnet to accommodate the new 16V engine, as well as wider wheels, tyres with all new identity badges front & rear.
The torque split was changed to 47% front & 53% rear, the Turbo charged 16V engine produced 200bhp at 5,500 RPM. With a maximum speed of 137 mph & 0-62 in 5.7 seconds, performance was, & still is, very quick for a small light machine from 1991.
This performance comes with the ability to run unleaded fuel (no modification was needed) & the larger injectors, with a more responsive Garrett T3 turbocharger coupled with a more efficient intercooler are factors of course in the performance & all underline the near Cult Status these cars enjoy for collectors & enthusiasts today.
The car offered for sale today was in daily use until 2006 and has done an average of just over 5,000 miles per year to date. The history file is extensive and reflects just one enthusiastic owner for the last 18 years.
During recent weeks, this car has transformed to one of the very best examples following restoration work at Premium Classic Cars. All of the suspension has been completely stripped & rebuilt with new Shocks & Struts all around. The cooling system for the car completely overhauled. The electrics for the car in parallel overhauled. A full service and extensive engine detailing / such as to present the engine bay in near new condition, leaves no doubt as to the possible show winning potential of this vehicle. The fabulous original Integrale wheels have been professionally refurbished & the headlining replaced .
The car now drives just as it should, it is of course super quick & responsive & an absolute blast to drive!
Finished in factory Grigio Anthracite with cloth interior, the car retains much Integrale patina whilst being in excellent condition.
These cars are increasingly few & far for sale, a car with full history such as this even rarer. This Integrale, possibly the very best on sale in recent times, is not only great value! But arguably a very clever choice as a modern classic with investment potential.
This is now very much an excellent condition classic to drive every day & equally an example to form the basis of a “show queen” if the Summer show circuit appeals.
The car as offered for sale can very much be enjoyed as is or we are quite able to take restoration to the next level with further paintwork or interior detailing .
Overseas visitors are most welcome and can be collected from all London airports with accommodation arranged.
Should a classic or competition car be available for part exchange, we would also have no hesitation in considering your car.
