1979-1990 LANCIA Delta specifications

1979-1990 LANCIA Delta specifications Classic and Performance Car

When it first appeared in 1979, the Delta was a bit of an oddity. Priced to compete with larger cars, buyers struggled to come to the terms with the idea of a premium hatchback. Giugiaro styling and posh interior installed on a Fiat Strada platform looked more impressive than the reality – so much so, that the Delta won the Car of The Year award for 1980. Came to its own in later years as the Integrale and HF Turbo, and consequently, there are few standard cars left. Find one and fight off the offers from owners of rusting Integrales. Sold in Sweden as the Saab 600.
