Our Simple Point Of View On The Lancia Delta Evo II Integrale
I have exported more of the Lancia Deltas than I care to remember. Not that many Final Editions obviously as they didn’t make that many. This review is not about this particular car but this model in general from a very limited and uneducated aspect.
No Right Hand Drive
Bugger me if the Italians had made a right-hand drive variant of this car one can only imagine how many more we would be selling and playing with. What were they not thinking at Fiat at the time?
It’s interesting for me to note that when I started selling Lancia Deltas back in 2008 I was paying about 1.4 to 1.8 million JPY for an EvoII and approximately 1 million JPY less for an EVO I. My customers didn’t even discuss the 16 Valve unless it was free or for parts.
2020 and a good condition 16V will start an auction with a price of over 2 million JPY normally. I didn’t think people wanted them lol.
Design & Others
What an amazing looking car at the time with those bid flared wheel arches and vents everywhere. A few people back in the early 90s saw not only a great rally car but an amazingly wheel designed car that would stand the test of time.
You will need to break a few piggy banks to own a Delta these days with prices at wholesale from $50K upwards with no sign of slowing down.
The interior with its Fiat switches and fabulous looking dashboard layout still makes one gasp today. A choice of leather or Alcantara upholstery was also a nice touch.
I am not going to discuss power as I judge most cars of this error as slow. However, it can still boggy along, and with a small amount of tuning its phenomenal.
The car is stunning with a few exceptions. Rust is the main one. Yes, they can get rusty especially at the rear under and around window rubbers, etc. Check this carefully ?
Prices should be stable currently but they are still high. Get your car soon.
