Unusual Lancia Delta HF Evo 500 model to be auctioned at CCA Carfest charity sale
Looking forward to Classic Car Auctions’ charity sale on 29 August, we are yet again faced a great selection of classic and modern performance cars for the taking.
The 1997 Lancia Delta HF Evo 500 HPE Turbo is a car that was never officially sold in the UK, as it was launched after the manufacturer pulled out of the market completely in 1995. It might not have the iconic status of the original, but this is one of just 500 Evo models produced, and it features the same engine and four-wheel drive system as the Integrale. There are even some Integrale-inspired box arches…
This particular example was bought new in Germany, and imported into the UK in 2000. It’s currently showing 174,450km on the clock (around 108k miles). Recently the Delta has had a full belt sevice and new turbocharger. Offered with no reserve, this Lancia might just be a bit of a bargain. Also on offer at the Carfest sale…
The Italian Pininfarina-styled F355 is one of the prettiest cars from the 1990s, and the Giallo Fly Yellow Spider offered in the sale is really quite special. It’s a 1997 model imported from Switzerland quite recently, with the added bonus of a six-speed manual gearbox to keep you interested. Having covered just shy of 60,000kms, with a service history to back it up, this left-hand drive 355 is conservatively estimated at £45-50,000.
If you’re after something BMW shaped, then you have a choice of two Estoril Blue Z3M Roadsters. The earlier 1998 model is the better example, having covered 61,000miles. Thanks to a full history and great overall condition it’s expected to sell for £12,000-£15,000. The 2001 example is offered in pretty great condition too, but a partial service history and 92,417 miles on the clock mean that it’s estimated at a very appealing £9000-£11,000.
Other interesting lots include an immaculate 1990 Corvette ZR-1 (£18,000-£20,000), as well as the V12-engined 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL60 AMG (£12,000-£14,000). Click here to see the full auction listings
