You can go by writing a letter to ask the Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione 1 Martini 6 that you see in the pictures, one of the sports of the time more sought after, and more in the state of this unit. In recent years, Volkswagen and Citroën have been the kings of the rally championship, but in the decade of the 80’s and 90’s, Lancia was one of the leading brands in this field.

The car has only 28.000 miles and it is in a good state of conservation of the exquisite, both of body as the interior, in addition that it preserves all the original accessories of the time.
The differences aesthetic key of this special edition are the decoration of Martini from the outside, as well as the interior with a tapestry of Alcantara with green stitching in contrasting red and a part of carbon fiber that surrounds the shifter with the plate numbered from the edition special. Under the hood of this compact sports rest a engine 2.0 turbo four-cylinder with 210 HP, associated to a manual change of five relations, and a system of all-wheel drive. There were No differences between the special edition Martini 6 and the other Evo “normal”. Although now it may seem little, in 1992 all the cars barajaban powers more modest.
