DG Auto Club is thrilled to offer this wonderful 1990 Lancia Delta HF integrale 16V, an iconic piece of rally racing history. The car is finished in a ‘Rosso Monza’ exterior paint and features grey cloth factory Recaro sport seats and door panels with striped fabric inserts.
These vehicles are quite rare in North America as they were never sold new on this side of the world. This example is well-documented, mechanically sound and remains in excellent aesthetic condition.
The 16V integrale was developed for rallying and introduced at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show; it made a winning debut on the 1989 San Remo Rally.
Compared to the 8V model it replaced, the 16V features larger injectors, a more responsive Garrett T3 turbocharger, a more efficient intercooler and the ability to run on unleaded fuel without modification.
The grey cloth factory Recaro seats with the unmistakably ’90s stripe pattern are in very good original condition showing only minor wear.
The headliner and all textile pieces of interior trim are present and appear as they should but good for their age, free from sagging, staining, rips, etc.
Engine & Performance
This Lancia Delta HF integrale 16V is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L engine producing 200 hp and a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph). Power is transferred through a 5-speed manual transmission.
It also featured a front “hood bulge” to accommodate the new 16 valve engine, as well as wider wheels and tires and new identity badges front and rear. The torque split was also changed from front-biased to rear-biased changed (47% front and 53% rear) and the ride was lowered by 20 mm.
This car features an AC delete to accommodate a larger radiator for better cooling capacity; this was very common modification as some deltas didn’t even have AC to start.
History & Condition
This Lancia Delta HF integrale 16V was originally delivered in Japan where it spent the majority of its life until 2 years ago. In mid 2018, the car was purchased and imported by a collector and Lancia enthusiast located in Calgary, Canada; this gentleman owned multiples Deltas including another 16V and EVO.
When the car arrived in Calgary, the paint on the roof was faded. The owner decided to have the car stripped and professionally resprayed to its original ‘Rosso Monza’ paint (see photos).
In addition to the repaint, the owner also decided to upgrade and refresh some mechanical components including the car’s brakes, a new windshield (a very expensive part from England) and some minor engine work.
The car was in great shape overall as its mileage was relatively low. The mileage has also been certified by JEVIC (Japan Export Vehicle Inspection Center) at 51,549 kms (32,031 miles) on July 3rd 2018.
The car was then purchased by its final owner on April 5th 2019. The buyer flew to Calgary to see the car and to drive it around the Canadian Rockies. He then shipped it via closed trailer to his residence in Quebec where it entered a new collection.
Once in Quebec, its latest owner decided to fix the intensity of the headlights and inspected the car thoroughly to ensure that no other work was needed.
In the fall of 2019, the timing belt snapped (likely due to a faulty belt installed by a previous owner) and damaged the head and one of the cylinders. In order to address this issue and avoid any future problems, the owner decided to have the engine rebuilt. The shop was instructed to address everything possible while they are rebuilding the engine. No expense was spared and the vehicle now runs flawless.
Finally, the car’s exhaust was bypassed to give it a deeper sound and BC coilers were also installed. The car requires no additional maintenance or repairs; it is in fantastic shape.
Comes with owner’s manuals and service records. Clean Carfax.
