What you see above is a wet dream of any rally fan, the Lancia Delta HF Group A. Those who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s, or watched WRC rewinds know that this cars record is unbeaten to this day. Now you see why we are more than happy to share with you this beautiful Lancia Delta HF art.
This Lancia Delta HF art is a reminder of a forgotten glory
Some of the young car fans would probably scratch their heads after hearing Lancia, WRC, and legend in a single sentence. It is understandable though; sadly nothing is left of Lancia’s former glory along with most of the Italian mass car manufacturing. Sure, there has been some success in recent years with the Fiat 500, Fiat 124 and more recently with the Alfa-Romeo Giulia, but nothing of the magnitude of the good old days.
Well, listen up. This car right here is the most successful model ever to do rallying and Lancia is the records holder for the most constructor’s championships and consecutive constructor’s championships (1987-1992). Not a bad start, given that they had just transitioned from Group B, otherwise known as the Killer Bees.
Want to hear some more numbers? The total amount of WRC victories: 46. Drivers championships: 4, split between Juha Kankkunen (1987, 1991) and Miki Biasion (1988, 1989). That’s some grim statistics right there. Total of 4 different model variations have been used from 1987 until 1992, Lancia Delta HF 4WD, Lancia Delta HF Integrale, Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16v and Lancia Delta HF Integrale “Evo”. A created couple of one-offs too – the open top Delta Spyder, built for the FIAT president Gianni Agnelli and the Evo 3, developed as a third evolution of the famous rally car with even more Italian sporting tricks added.
Now you can own this beautiful Lancia Delta HF art, carefully created by Marc Carreras and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.
