Lot 203 - 1987 Lancia Delta GT i.e.
|Odometer reading||18,860 miles|
|Result||Sold - £5,264|
The Lancia Delta was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motorshow in 1979. Production ran from 1979 until 1999. The Delta was most famous for dominating the World Rally Championship in the late 80s and early 90s. The Delta was face lifted in 1986 and a new GT i.e. variant was launched at the same time. The cylinder head was rotated 180⁰ to aid cooling by moving the exhaust to the front and the whole engine was slanted 18⁰ to lower the centre of gravity and better improve the handling.
This low mileage righthand drive Delta GT i.e. was owned by one family from new until this year. The mileage can be verified by a full folder of all old MoT test certificates and service invoices from new. The paint is all original and the interior is superb, the door cards even retain their plastic factory protection. We believe that no more than three of these Delta GT i.e. models remain on UK roads. The car is supplied with a V5C registration document and MoT test certificate valid until February 2016. Is there a more accessible way to finally fulfill those childhood Rally Driver dreams? We think not.
