Car for Sale: Super-Rare 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Martini 5 Evoluzione
Lancia officially retired from rallying back in 1991, but it made sure to end its run on a high note. Its racehorse, the Lancia Delta, is touted as one of the best rally cars ever produced and is considered a legend in its own right.
To commemorate its fifth consecutive World Rally Championship victory before retiring, Lancia built 400 examples of the Delta Integrale Martini 5 Evoluzione from October 1991 to 1992. One of those copies is now up for grabs at Bring-a-Trailer.com and the bid for it has already gone north of $100,000!
Check Out Doug DeMuro’s Presentation of the Often-Forgotten Porsche 968 Clubsport
The 968 was the last great sports car from Porsche’s transaxle era, which started with the 924 and continued with the likes of 944 and 928.
Porsche finally exited this transaxle phase in 1995, with some 400,000 such models built, so a nod back to those times always makes sense - and you don’t have to be a Porschephile to acknowledge it. Thanks to Doug DeMuro, the 968 Club Sport gets the attention it deserves.
Everything You Didn’t Know About The Jeep Comanche
The Jeep Comanche was a compact pickup truck that American Motors Corporation (AMC) introduced in 1985. Based on the XJ-generation Cherokee, the Comanche was produced until 1992. Production of the small pickup truck moved under the Chrysler Corporation in 1987, when the giant purchased AMC.
A spiritual successor to the Jeep Scrambler, the Comanche was the brand’s last pickup truck until the Gladiator was revived in 2019. Despite not being as iconic as other Jeep models, the Comanche is slowly but surely becoming a classic. Prices have gone up in recent years as this compact truck is as rare as a Ferrari. Here’s a few things you did not know about the Jeep Comanche.
Is This Bugatti EB110 GTR Better Than the Centodieci?
When Bugatti brought the
based Centodieci in Pebble Beach back in 2019, a lot of jaws dropped. Yet as it always happens whenever a new car/special edition breaks out, naysayers were quick to comment that the Centodieci was just another glorified Bugatti with no connection to the original EB110 other than some styling cues.
The thing is, it’s hard not to be subjective when it comes to Bugatti. It’s also pretty hard not to love the brand once you learn its history. But for those who raised their eyebrows at the sight of the Centodieci, here’s a motorsport-y twist on the EB110.
700-HP Lancia Delta Integrale Runs Hillclimbs Like It’s on Rails
Let’s put it this way: the Delta Integrale, in all of its versions, has six consecutive WRC titles under its belt. The race car absolutely dominated the rally realm between 1987 and 1992, sparking that sort of passion that still resides in the heart of every gearhead.
By modern standards, Lancia isn’t the most successful carmaker we’ve known. In fact, the brand’s decline makes us ask ourselves if it will manage to survive for the next five years or so. The Delta Integrale Evoluzione homologation special, though, will keep the Lancia name alive for us. That and this 700-horsepower Integrale Evo ripping a hillclimb course.
The First Dodge Viper Ever Produced Just Sold for $285,500
The Dodge Viper came in a time when Chrysler was associated with people carriers and compact front-wheel drive cars. It was first shown in concept guise back in January 1989 after just one year under development and the first customers got their Vipers in the early months of 1992. The rest, as they say, is history.
Also history - of the living ilk - is this particular red-painted Dodge Viper, for two reasons: it’s the very first to leave the assembly line and it had one owner throughout its entire life. That owner is Lee Iacocca, who sadly passed away on July the 2nd, 2019.

1992 Porsche 911 Carrera RS
The Porsche 911 Carrera RS is an exercise in reducing a formula to its purest form. It was built as a lighter, faster, and more powerful version of the 964-generation Carrera 2 and it stands as a spiritual successor of the magnificent 911 Carrera 2.7 RS from the early ‘70s.
The Benjamin Dimson-penned Porsche 911 (964) debuted in 1989 and featured a rounder body shape in tune with the times which was a clear, but not profoundly radical, departure from the design of the previous 911 that was still tracing its roots back to the original Ferdinand Alexander Porsche-drawn model launched in 1963.
For 1992, Porsche launched the Carrera RS in Europe which was, in essence, a road-legal version of the Carrera Cup racing cars. This single-make series was on the bill of the Formula 1 World Championship weekends as support races in between F1 sessions.
The 911 Carrera RS never officially made it across the Atlantic and into the U.S. market. With that being said, 45 cars that were meant to be used in a Carrera Cup U.S. series that never materialized did trickle down to dealerships and were quietly sold in 1993 in the shadow of the RS America which deserves its own review as it isn’t identical to the European RS.
1992 Bugatti EB 110 SS
When Bugatti launched production of its world-beating, 1,000-horsepower, 8.0-liter, quad-turbo Veyron in 2005, the auto world went just a little bit of crazy. And rightfully so. That said, the Veyron owes a good deal of its success to this – the EB 110. Produced in limited numbers throughout the ‘90s, it was the only production model created during Italian entrepreneur Romano Artioli’s short stint as Bugatti head honcho. Considered one of the very first street-worthy mid-engine supercars of the ‘90s, the EB 110 was a true technological tour de force in its own right, with a high-revving, quad-turbo, 60-valve, 3.5-liter V-12 engine mounted behind the cabin, an active rear wing, and lightweight carbon fiber body. Indeed, prior to the release of the legendary McLaren F1, the EB 110 was in contention for fastest production car on the planet.
