What? – A stunning example of a Lancia Delta Integrale. Not just any Integrale though, a 1995 Lancia Delta Integrale EVO 2 Edizione Finale to be precise. One of the last produced, following a legendary production run, this exact model has the potential to be a museum piece one day. Coupled with the incredibly low mileage of 56,000 miles and an upgraded 250bhp from the factory, this is the ultimate purchase for any rally car or Integrale enthusiast.

Why? – The Integrale was not only one of the best rally cars throughout the 1980’s and 90’s, but of all time. Those who don’t know can place its success amongst the infamous Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. After winning multiple championships and inspiring an entire generation of motoring enthusiasts, the final production run came to an emotional end in the mid 90’s – thus becoming the last of the interesting Lancias.

This exact version was the final chapter in the tall tale of the rally legend. Those who purchased one new benefited from upgraded power, high bucket Recaro seats, 16″ Speedline alloy wheels, push start ignition, carbon fibre oddities, aluminium pedals and passenger footrest, MOMO steering wheel, special Eisbach suspension springs, front and rear OMP strut-brace and a satisfying feeling of owning something particularly special.

Known to many is Lancia’s reputation to rust quicker than their 0-60 time. Thankfully, this example has been stated to contain not a single bubble of the tin worm and will come fully serviced with a new cambelt.

Where? – Found via Car and Classic, at a dealership in Newbury, Berkshire.

Odometer reading? – A rather modest 56,000 miles.

The Bad Bits? – The price is fairly steep. But it doesn’t take a genius to notice the potential rise in value in years to come.

How Much? – £44,995.
