2018 Lancia Delta HF Integrale - Futurista Coupe

2018 Lancia Delta HF Integrale - Futurista Coupe

An exquisite reimagining of a rally icon, now built for the modern era

The Lancia Delta HF Integrale was an absolute legend in the world of motorsports. Forged in the fires of Group A rally racing, the boxy Italian compact collected a number of wins throughout its career, earning the respect and adoration of countless racing fans. Eugenio Amos counts himself among those fans, and from his passion, he’s created the Lancia Delta Futurista, a restomod that elevates the legend to an all-new level, all while keeping in the spirit of the original.

The Lancia Delta Futurista was designed and built by Amos’ company, Automobili Amos, a customization shop out of Italy. The restomod project is similar to the Jag E-Type-based Eagle Speedster and 911-based Singer Porsches we’ve seen before, mixing high-level modernization and performance with old school, nostalgia-inducing cues. Amos likens the Lancia Delta Futurista to a “romantic vision” that breaks from a world perceived as “too aseptic, too fast, that runs like the wind, superficial and intangible.”

1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale

1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale

A Group B racer for the road

Fleeting, brutal, and wickedly fast – these are the words that best describe the Group B era of the WRC, a period now known as the Golden Age of Rally. In just a few short years, Group B spawned some of the most legendary race cars to ever churn terra firma, but few capture the unbridled insanity of mid-‘80s rallying quite like the twin-charged, mid-ship, AWD monster known as the Lancia Delta S4. Although Group B regulations were notoriously vague, competitors still had to produce a limited number of homologation specials for public consumption, and as such, Lancia dialed back the boost on the S4, added a thin veneer of civility, and tacked on some license plates. The result is called the Stradale.

Don’t let the civilian appointment fool you – under the skin, the Stradale is still very much a rally hero, with the same cutting-edge go-fast technology as its competition-spec sibling. Unfortunately, this abundantly obvious performance heritage makes it difficult to find an example in its original factory condition, as many were either converted into club racers straight out of the box, crashed, or both. That said, if you know where to look, and you’ve got an extra six figures burning a hole in your pocket, there are a few out there that are still up for grabs.

Fiat Chrysler May Bring Back Lancia Delta Integrale

Fiat Chrysler May Bring Back Lancia Delta Integrale

There have been a lot of legendary rally cars over the years; cars that have brought their manufacturers all kinds of motorsport credibility. But there can only be one car that has won more WRC races than any other, made by the marque with more constructor titles than any other. That car is the Lancia Delta Intergrale, a towering legend of a machine from a marque that has almost completely ceased to exist. But word is that a case is being to bring back the Delta Integrale, with Lancia existing solely as a one-model brand for the foreseeable future.

The thinking is that the Delta Integrale name is one that is still spoken of in hushed tones, and for FCA not to capitalize on that is to leave money on the table. A lot happened has to Lancia since the days it reigned supreme in WRC, not least of which being that Alfa Romeo took over the role of Fiat’s sport sub-brand. But this is part of why no case is being made for reviving the whole brand, and really, so long as there was a Delta Integrale, not many enthusiasts would mind that being the only Lancia.

2010 Lancia Delta Serie Speciale

2010 Lancia Delta Serie Speciale

Lancia’s ticket to the Geneva Motor Show has been stamped and the brand is bringing with them a special-edition Delta. This exclusive Lancia Delta will come with a 1.6 Multijet 120 horsepower engine with a standard DPF as well as a Selectronic automatic transmission. Set apart by a two-tone body - white with matte black roof - and by Frau leather interior, this special edition Delta is unique for having a rather plush and comfortable back seat - an exclusive feature of the Delta’s Executive version.

As it stands now, the Gold and Platinum versions of the Lancia Delta will joi the Executive version in having these cozy and comfortable seats, which, as Lancia describes, provides the same comfort as an armchair in business class on an intercontinental flight. In addition to that, the seats also come with a reclining backrest that creates lots of legroom, an especially useful feature for those that always seem to find themselves in the middle of long trips.

This exclusive treatment at the rear of the Lancia Delta makes it a real modern alternative to bigger, heavier, and more expensive sedans with higher fuel consumption levels. While those brands may have an edge in terms of popularity and brand recall, this special edition Lancia Delta is as good as it gets as far as space and comfort are concerned.

Lancia Delta HF renderings

Lancia Delta HF renderings

The original Delta HF Evoluzione was launched in 1991. With design elements from the 2008 Lancia Delta HPE, Infomotori imagined how a future Delta HF will look like.

The dimensions have been shortened, as the original size was near the 4,50 meters. But ,uch of the details remind of the original HF: the front lights are round and double, but adaptative bixeno. Three huge air intakes “charge” the hood, in addition with the large radiator grill at the front. And adding the 20” alloy wheels, the design looks classic and sporty.

Under the hood there might be a turbo direct injection fuel 1.8 litres unit, capable of developing until 230 hp, thanks to the Multiair System: it is the great 1.8 JTB, which will powered the future Alfa Romeo cars.
