Lot 285 - 1989 Lancia Delta HF Integrale KAT
|Sold - £3,696
The Lancia Delta HF and Integrale dominated world rallying in the late eighties and nineties winning 46 World Championship events and six consecutive manufactures titles. As a road car, the various evolutions of the model won plaudits for their exceptional handling, wonderful steering, high performance and point-to-point abilities. Indeed, Car magazine recognised the Integrale as 'the greatest hot hatch' likening its performance to a Porsche 911 and even testing it head-to-head with a Ferrari Testarossa. EVO magazine readers voted the Integrale in the top ten cars of all time alongside the Mclaren F1 and Bugatti Veyron.
This car was first sold to a Swiss customer before being imported to the UK in 1997. Since that time, the car has had two owners and has been with the current keeper since 2002. The Integrale Kat model has the renowned bottom end of the 16 valve engine combined with the reliable turbo-charged top end of the eight valve unit which provides the best mix of performance against engine ruggedness and was exclusive to the Swiss market. The car is well known at marque specialists John Whalley who have carried out all servicing, most recently, at the begining of May 2012 and mechanical and bodywork over the last ten years. A thick file of bills, a full year MoT test certificates and other documentation from new comes with the car. Mechanically very strong and with excellent pressures and temperatures all round, this Lancia features the desirable full leather HF interior in excellent condition.
