Description

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.

Marc Carreras on his passion for cars, scale models, football, Barca, Porsche 993, working for BMW, and automotive design.

How did you get into cars?

Since I was a kid I always loved cars. My room was full with scale models and these were the only presents I asked for for a long time. Years passed by and I always dreamed in working in car design, even though I realized it wouldn’t be easy, however now I work as a 3D sculptor in BMW. So we can say I am surrounded by the automotive world.

If you have an option for a permanent exhibition, where would you like it to be?

If I could choose just one place to have my artwork exposed I would probably like it to be the Petersen Museum in LA. I was once there and fell in love with it. The architecture of the building and the exposition inside both impressed me, so it would be a pleasure to be featured there.

Imagine unlimited budget for just a one car. What a vehicle you’d have in your garage?

I would definitely go for a Porsche 993. This has always been my dream car. I was once very close to get one some years ago but was a little too expensive for me at that moment so I decided to wait for a little more. Unfortunately it has been one of the models which has increased the most his value so what was close to happen some years ago is now more difficult. I always regret not having purchased it.

Do you have specific motoring culture you admire and if yes, why?

To be honest I am more a fan of the esthetics of automotion than of the motorsport culture. What I love the most are the classic models, I think there is nothing like 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s if we talk about car design. I love the detail they used to put in each and every single part of a car. Also materials used were pure without as much plastic as we have nowadays.

If it weren’t cars, what would it be?

I have always been passionate about Football. I am a big fan of Barcelona and really enjoy watching it and also playing. Cars and football are my 2 passions.
