THE DELTA HF INTEGRALE EVO 1

As a road-going, limited edition Halo-car - paying tribute to its domination of the Constructors' World Rally Championship for the sixth consecutive year in 1992 - Lancia set out to build a special Delta HF Integrale Evo 1 to commemorate the occasion; the iconic and now legendary 'Martini 6'. At a cursory glance, the new livery on the model might have looked similar to the previous model, but on closer inspection, the red-and-blue Martini stripe over its white paintwork widens over the car's bulging wheel arches in both the front and rear, giving it a very aggressive and competitive look. Furthermore, unique to the 'Martini 6', the model features three 'World Rally Champion' decals on both the front doors and front bumper, along with the appropriate numeral '6'; HF decals on each rear side panel; a large Lancia crest decal on the roof; and the famous 'Martini Racing' script on the rear spoiler.

Where the exterior details are subtle, the interior changes are more obvious. The popular high-back adjustable Recaro bucket seats and interior trim were finished in a stunning and vibrant turquoise Alcantara, with HF logos embossed on the headrests, and a new steering wheel was fitted, along with a carbon fiber trimmed 'Quickshift' gear lever, which features an individual plaque inscribed with the car's unique serial number. For an improved feel, Lancia fitted Teflon bushes to the gear linkage.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This stunningly original and well-documented example is number 145 of the 310 'Martini 6' special edition examples produced by Lancia to commemorate their 6th consecutive Constructors' World Rally Championship win in 1992. A close look at this rare and powerful Delta HF Integrale's impressive history file reveals a thoroughly documented automobile, which appears to have been cherished and preserved since it was brand new. According to its Lancia Certificato Di Origine on file, this 'Martini 6' finished production on November 30th, 1992, and was registered for road use the following month on December 21st, before being acquired new by presumably the initial selling dealer, an entity by the name of Trentinauto Srl on the 23rd of December 1992. Over the holidays, on December 28th, a Mr. Pietro Paolo Rosolen purchased the Delta 'Martini 6' and became its first private owner. The Guanzate, Italy, native had put just 7,309kms on the odometer by 1994 and later sold the car on February 24th, 1998 to Fratelli Mariani Sas, of Milan. After being sold to a Mr. Giuseppe Cominetti in November of 1999, the car remained in the Bergamo area for 10 years, until it came into the ownership of a Mr. Giuseppe Lisa of Salerno.

After spending nearly a decade on the Gulf of Salerno, Italy, the previous owner - a UK based collector car specialist with great expertise in rally and competition cars - purchased the 'Martini 6' in early 2018. At the time, and to this day, this stunningly original and cared-for 'Martini 6' presented in beautiful condition, and was treated to a comprehensive service, including a new timing belt, by Lancia specialists in Italy.

Later in 2018, the car was purchased by a noted US collector of exceptional sports and supercars and imported to the United States. A recent service was performed by Miller Motorcars of Greenwich, Connecticut, and today this rare, 1 of 310 Delta Integrale HF Evo 1 Martini 6, remains in beautiful original and preserved condition throughout, while displaying just over 27,000 kilometers (16,800 miles) on the odometer. Factory applied decals, markings and identification plates remain intact, and inside, the original striking turquoise Recaro Alcantara seats remain in exceptional condition, reflecting the pampered life and low mileage.

Adding to the outstanding original condition are the accompanying items and documentation offered with the car, including the original Lancia tool kit, original warranty card and service booklet, owners and operation manuals in pouch, spare and master keys, and a comprehensive history file binder including the Certificate of Origin, Centro Storico FIAT documentation, copy of Automobile club d'OItalia registration card, Italian road inspection records and service invoice. Commemorating Lancia's incredible six consecutive World Rally Championships, this 'Martini 6' represents a rare opportunity to own a piece of the Lancia Rally legend, and it is indisputably a collector car which will be increasingly appreciated for decades to come.
