Description:

Osprey Automotive. This is from the dustwrapper: "BRILLIANTLY, LANCIA proved with the introduction of the Delta in 1978 that it had retained its highly individualistic flair. Many feared that acquisition by Fiat would inevitably lead to the once proud and idiosyncratic Lancia marque becoming yet another middle-of-the-road European marque. It was not difficult to understand why concern for the fate of Lancia should arise. At the point where it was set yet again to win the rally World Championship the incomparable Lancia Stratos was sacrificed for Fiat's 131. Very few motor sport trophies would have '131' engraved upon them. Nigel Trow also explains that for reasons of economy, Lancia was compelled to use the Fiat Ritmo floorpan as a platform for the Delta. Once the model was launched, however, there was tremendous relief: Lancia had built a masterpiece. On the international rally circuit it proved that it could take on, and beat, the very much more powerful competition from Ford, Peugeot, General Motors and the Japanese. Powered by a two litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged, transversely mounted engine, the Delta appeared out classed. But meticulous planning, preparation and driver determination ensured the car took the rally constructors' championship year after year. Lancia then capitalized upon the lessons learned in rallying by producing road cars which were very close in specification to those used by the factory team. This book takes the reader behind the scenes of Lancia to reveal how the Integrale HF 16v, with its permanent four-wheel drive controlled by Torsen differentials, became one of the landmark models of the 1980s. The author also covers the other variants from the launch to the end of the model's production." 192 pages, 8 X 11 inches. Near fine book in a near fine dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory #
