The Lancia Delta Integrale is regarded as one of the greatest hot hatchbacks ever. And evo’s boss – Harry Metcalfe – has just bought one. Here he talks us through his gorgeous yellow example, one of just 220 Giallo Ginestra special editions which benefited from the eye-catching paint on top of typical 215bhp, 231lb ft four-wheel-drive Evo II mechanicals.
Harry didn’t have an easy time finding a car; its 1994 list price of £25,000 placed it £7500 pricier than the equally powerful Subaru Impreza Turbo
, so UK cars are scarce and imports are the typical path to a good example. This Integrale lived in Japan – helping it to its rust-free condition – and has covered a scant 33,000 miles.
Everyone in the office is pretty jealous, and once you’ve seen Harry’s Delta Integrale in the video above, we imagine you will be too…
