Lancia Delta General Information

Please read also the Lancia Delta groupA chapter, where we already explain why the Delta was so unbeatable, how it used the regulations differently to get a massive head start. But as well it is a fact that it is a mega car, despite the times moving on the Delta is to the day regarded as one of the best 4x4 turbo road cars there ever was.

And it saw a fair bit of development throughout its long life. We started off when Lancia thought "What is needed to have the ideal group A (& N) rally car?" The way Lancia thought is easy to see, once you realise there already was a turbo charged Lancia Delta road car since a while: a 1.6 Turbo FWD - simply NOT what was needed! So in time for the groupA rallying start in 1987 Lancia created the Delta HF 4WD: perfect size, 4x4, 2.0 turbo, hatchback. In 1988 the car grew wings (wheel arch extension) to become the Delta integrale. In 1989 there was the one and only detail added that Lancia seemed to have originally forgotten, a 16v engine turning the car the Delta integrale 16v. And with the start of 1992 the Delta Evo was ready, with even bigger wings, it looked absolutely stunning!

And what is good for groupA is good for groupN also. It is strange that the Delta was not as dominant in groupN as it was in groupA. But this certainly was not because the car wasn't capable. Right in contrary, the groupN World Champions of the late 1980s, early 1990s were usually sitting in a Mazda 323 or a Nissan Sunny, both cars the Lancia Delta very clearly had the measure of already in road trim. What happened was that Alessandro Fiorio indeed won the groupN title in 1987 in a Delta HF 4WD. But in the following years people like Jorge Recalde, Gustavo Trelles and Carlos Menem jr. were that much dominating the groupN procedures that they were regularly called up for groupA drives. And while these guys would have been silly not to jump at these chances, it very clearly was this that cost the Delta the chance to win more groupN titles. If there would have been a groupN makes championship as well as a drivers one, the bet is that Lancia would have kept the title for 6 years running, just as they did in groupA.
