First seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1979, the Lancia Delta Integrale is best known for its domination of the World Rally Championship in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Constantly being developed, the first ‘Evoluzione' cars were built at the end of 1991 and carried on through 1992 and these 'Evo' models were to be the final homologation cars built for the Lancia Rally Team competing under the Martini Racing banner.
Arriving in June 1993, a further development of the HF Integrale naturally became known as the Evo II and featured an updated version of the 2-litre 16-valve turbo engine producing a little more power (215bhp) and incorporated a three-way catalyst and a Lambda probe, with everything being run by a new Marelli integrated engine control system.
In addition to the mechanical changes, the Evo II received a cosmetic and functional facelift that included, new 16" light alloy rims with 205/45 ZR 16 tyres, a body colour roof moulding to underline the connection between the roof and the Solar control windows, an aluminium fuel cap and air-intake grilles on the front mudguards, a red-painted cylinder head, a new leather-covered three-spoke MOMO steering wheel, and Recaro seats upholstered in beige Alcantara with diagonal stitching.
This Evo II dates from 1993 and naturally is left-hand drive. It's finished in Monza Red with a beige interior and is showing an unwarranted 74,619 kilometres (46,637mls), however, the general condition of the car suggests this may be accurate. The bodywork all presents very well and the paintwork remains decent and is commensurate with the age of the car. The door shuts and panel gaps look even, the interior is very tidy, the wheels are excellent, and overall this little Evo seems well cared for. It was imported from Germany in 1996 and has been enjoyed by three owners in the UK with our vendor having owned it since 1998. We understand that since its purchase he has kept it in an environmentally controlled 'Airflow Chamber' when not being driven. In 2016, 'Walkers Integrale' carried out a major service including cam/balance belts, oil and filters, plugs, air/fuel filters, all four dampers/bump stops, drop links, fuel pump, clean injectors, and a new radiator. The bill for this was around £5,000 and a copy is in the history file. Also with the car is the stamped service book, MoTs from 1998, the sales advert, a pile of service and maintenance invoices, and the toolkit.
Anyone who has ever driven an Integrale knows how special they are and K292 APF seems a very honest example with plenty of history and represents an excellent opportunity to experience the sense of invincibility engendered by these talented little Lancias.
