1984-1990 LANCIA Delta HF Turbo specifications Classic and Performance Car

In an attempt to join the 1980s hot hatch club, Lancia uprated its stylish Delta with a turbocharged version of the classic Fiat twin-cam under the bonnet. Performance was predictably rapid, and thanks to Martini stripes on all-white paintwork (for the early cars), it stood out from the crowd, too. Sales in the UK were never that fantastic, thanks to the Escort XR3i and Golf GTI’s dominance of the sector, but despite its obscurity the Delta HF Turbo earned itself a reputation for being fast and fun. Not the last word in finesse or refinement, but a hoot to drive.
