Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione II, 1993


Delta Integrale Evoluzione II Lancia was sold to Fiat in 1969, and it was hoped a high-performance hot hatch would recapture Lancia’s earlier glory. The specialized S4 took second place in the 1986 World Championship and, keen to capitalize on this success, Lancia built a range of turbo-powered, all-wheel-drive models. The Evoluzione was fast and boxy, with widened arches and prominent spoilers. The cars did well and today find ready buyers.

Engine1,995 cc, four-cylinder
Top speed137 mph (220 km/h)

Introduced in 1993, the Evoluzione II had a more powerful engine than the previous model, producing a blistering 215 bhp. It also sported cosmetic changes.

Lancia Kappa Coupe, 1997


Kappa Coupe A shortened wheelbase, wider track, and frameless doors served to distinguish the coupe from its saloon sibling, but sales were slow, making this a rare beast for any would-be Lancia collector. Offered only in left-hand drive, the car used an engine from its Alfa Romeo stablemate and was styled in-house. It failed to reignite interest however, though this was as much to do with its high price as with any specific shortcomings.

Engine2,955 cc, V6
Top speed137 mph (220 km/h)

Based on the executive Kappa saloon, this model was Lancia’s first coupe since 1984. While praised for its sporty engine range, the styling was not popular.
