THE BOOK ABOUT THE LANCIA RALLY CAR
Lancia Delta 4WD/Integrale
By Graham Robson
This new book from Veloce’s Rally Giants Series relates how Lancia, and Abarth, speedily developed a new Delta competition car after the exciting but dangerous Group B rallying category had been killed off in May 1986. It tells us how the HF 4×4 evolved through the years – first into the Integrale with its original 8-valve engine, then the Integrale 16V, and ultimately the Integrale 16V Evo 1. The Integrale was both the most successful Lancia rally car – it completely dominated the sport for years – and the last, as the car came to the end of its career in 1993, when the Italian giant withdrew from the sport.
It was also a great commercial success, as author Robson confirms: ‘Even though the design is now more than twenty years old, it is still a well-loved favourite of all fast-car fanatics.’
This book is a ‘must have’ for any Delta/Integrale fan and is available now from bookshops or www.velocebooks.com
