Notoriously dangerous both for drivers and spectators, rally driving is a category of motorsport that has bred some of the most exciting machines known to mankind.
The Delta was produced by Italian automaker Lancia as a small family car, but went on to become the most successful rally car of all time, winning 45 of 63 championship events to garner six consecutive World Rally Championships (1987–1992)—something you might not expect of a car designed for child seats and groceries.
Sotheby’s is offering this 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione for interested collectors. This particular car is one of only 400 “Giallo Ferrari” editions. Largely original and unmodified, the car includes all books, jack, tools, and safety triangle.
This car was considered a “homologation” car. Homologation cars are used in motorsports to certify that the vehicle meets all regulations and rules set by the racing series’ governing body. Family car though it may be, you’re still going to get a white-knuckle ride out of it.
