The last Lancia models weren’t anything special, but if you wind the clock back a few decades, you’ll find that the automaker produced some of the most iconic road and race cars ever built.

Although it is impossible to pinpoint one as being better than the other, the Stratos is considered by many to be the quintessential Lancia. Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire recently had a chance to test out one and discover if it lives up to the hype.

For his test, Farah jumped into the driver’s seat of a red example and mentions a few unique quirks about the car.

For starters, this Stratos has been geared to max out at roughly 55 mph (88 km/h). What’s more, the driving position is also very curious, as the pedals are offset a few inches off to the right.

However, as you’ll see in the video that follows, these quirks do not detract from the Stratos’ character one bit.

Yellow Lancia Delta HF Intergrale Evoluzione To Be Sold Without Reserve 10

Posted by Brad Anderson in auction, Hot Hatch, Lancia, Lancia Delta, Rally Cars, used cars on 11 10th, 2017


A jaw-dropping 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione will hit the auction block without a reserve at RM Sotheby’s New York auction next month.

Between 1991 and 1992, Lancia celebrated its World Rally Championship dominance with the release of the street-legal Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione, powered by a 16-valve, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 210 hp in street tune. These vehicles are already extremely desirable but the following Evoluzione is even more remarkable, being one of just 400 ‘Giallo Ferrari’ special edition models built.

This example has been owned by the same person since new and covered just 6,487 km. RM Sotheby’s says that it is “remarkably original and unmodified, and includes all books, jack, tools, and safety triangle.

Beyond its low mileage, this Evoluzione has something else going in its favor; its model year. As a 1992 example, it is now eligible for importation into the United States, unlike the later Evoluzione II models built by Lancia. What’s more, this Delta is sure to attract enthusiasts as it lacks any of the common modifications performed to most others.

RM Sotheby’s expects it to sell for between $175,000 and $225,000.
