The Lancia Rally 037

The Italian automobile manufacturer, Lancia, was founded in 1906. Known for its innovations, Lancia products offered the world numerous mass production firsts, like the inclusion of a standard electrical system and the broad use of independent suspension at a time when live axles (front and rear) were the norm, and the V6 engine. This hunger for innovation and the lack of overlap between its product lines drove production costs up over time. Despite leadership efforts, the practically hand-built Lancias were costing the company more than it could earn. These financial straits led to its acquisition by the Fiat group in October 1969. Shortly after, Lancia launched several new models during the 1970s and in the process, gained a foothold in the world of rally.

Known internally by its Abarth project number, 037, the Lancia Rally 037 – or Lancia-Abarth 037 - was the product of a joint effort with design house Pininfarina, Dallara and project manager, Sergio Limone. A combination monocoque/tube-frame chassis formed the skeleton on which the Kevlar and fiberglass reinforced body panels were mounted. Distinctive features include a "double bubble" roof, a styling trait from Abarth's 50-60's racecars. The position of the engine, cockpit, windshield, side windows and firewall were derived from the 037's championship-winning predecessor, the Beta Montecarlo. The tube-frame structure (fore and aft) provided pickup points for the double wishbone suspension arms and the hydraulically dampened Bilstein shock absorbers. Since weight was biased toward the rear, dual shock absorbers dampen each of the rear corners. To cut speed, Abarth developed a 4-wheel disc brake system in conjunction with Italian brake manufacturer, Brembo.

Since engine size and chassis weight dictated which class the 037 would compete in, the design team aimed for the naturally-aspirated 3,000cc engine class, which required a minimum weight of 960kg. Based on a factor of 1.4, a forced induction engine could not exceed 2,143cc. Therefore, the development team decided on an Aurelio Lampredi-designed supercharged engine that displaced only 1,995cc, which easily fell within the requirements. Cradled within the web of steel tubing at the rear, the dual cam engine was positioned for optimal weight distribution. Equipped with an Abarth Volumex Roots-type positive displacement supercharger system, the engine delivered superior response and nearly instantaneous boost pressure, generating output measured at 205bhp at 7,000 RPM with 166 lb-ft torque at 5,000 RPM. To put the chassis in motion, the supercharged Lampredi engine relied on a hydraulic single-disc clutch to transfer horsepower at the crankshaft into horsepower at the wheels by way of a ZF 5-Speed Manual Transaxle equipped with a ZF self-locking differential.

The Lancia Rally 037 made its competition debut at the 1982 Rally Costa Smeralda in Italy. Although it suffered from teething pains in its first year in competition, the Lancia-Abarth 037 managed to win at the Pace Rally in the UK. With the kinks worked out, the Italian marque's impact in the realm of Group B Rally was felt after the 037 enjoyed a much more successful season, winning the 1983 World Rally Championship Constructors' title, thanks to the collective victories of Germany's Walter Röhrl and Finland's Markku Alen.

The Motorcar Offered

This rare and very original Lancia Rally 037 was purchased from a Mr. Edoardo A. Magnone on February 15, 1990 in Italy, and has since resided with just one owner. The car appears to have been in Torino, Italy, as it was equipped with Italian license plates with the TO prefix. This rare homologation Lancia is believed to have only 9,342 kilometers from new, and remains in largely original condition. The interior and exterior shows some use, but is complete, and intact. A full mechanical service would be recommended before use. The 037 is offered with a spare parts catalogue, a period Abarth parts bag, as well as what appears to be the original rear spoiler. The Lancia Rally 037 represents the last of the winning rear-wheel drive Group B rally cars to compete in the series that became dominated by all-wheel drive platforms.
