The Delta designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, first came to light in 1979 .The Delta Integrale 8V was the first evolution of the Delta 4WD and was introduced in October 87.
At the heart of the 8-valve HF Integrale is a 2-litre 4-cylinder fuel injected twin cam engine, fitted with contra-rotating balancing shafts. This version incorporated the following improvements over the HF 4WD: New valves, valve seats and water pump, larger water and oil radiators, more powerful cooling fan and bigger air cleaner. A larger capacity Garrett T3 turbocharger with improved air flow and bigger inter-cooler to aid volumetric efficiency, together with revised settings for the electronic injection/ignition control unit and a knock sensor, boost power output to 185 bhp (DIN) (136 kW) at 5300 rpm and maximum torque of 31 m•kgf (304 N•m, 224 lbf•ft) at 3500 rpm.
The HF Integrale advanced transmission systems incorporates permanent 4-wheel drive, a front transversely mounted engine and five-speed gearbox. An epicyclic centre differential normally splits the torque 56 per cent to the front axle, 44 per cent to the rear. However a noiseless, fully automatic Ferguson viscous coupling balances the torque split to give the optimal division between front and rear axles depending on road conditions and tyre grip. The Torsen rear differential further divides the torque delivered to each rear wheel according to grip available.
The ventilated front discs were increased in diameter to 284 mm (11.2 in), improved friction coefficient pads were fitted to the rear brakes. The all round independent suspension features new front springs, dampers and front struts.
Improvements were also made to the body. Enlarged wheel arches housing the wider section 195/55 VR tyres on 15-inch 6J alloy wheels. A new bonnet incorporated air louvres while the restyled bumpers wrapped around to meet the wheel arches at front and rear. The front bumper, now wider, incorporates air intakes to assist engine cooling, and houses rectangular auxiliary driving lights, that complement the twin circular headlights.
In 1988, Lancia won 10 victories out of 11 rallies and the world title. The 8 valve Delta was clearly unrivalled..
This particular car still registered TO 82957H was driven by Alen-Kivimaki during this memorable season, under the official Lancia-Abarth Martini colours. Incredibly well preserved this car is an incredible opportunity to acquire an indisputably original Lancia Works car with exceptional pedigree.
