Italian Passion with Little Distraction

Italy produces some of the most lust worthy pieces of sheet metal in all the world.  Just the mere sight of them can make a person all teary-eyed and weak in the knees.  This Lancia Delta Integrale isn't one of those sensuous pieces of steel but still has the same crisis-inducing effects.

To regular readers of Flappy Paddle Heads, this car needs no introduction.  The race version was covered a little while back in Killer B (part2).  For the uninitiated, here's the short story.  This car is the basis for the all conquering Lancia Delta S4 rally car from the 80s.  It sports a 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder that produces 200hp and sends it to all four wheels.  It does 0-60 in the same time as a modern WRX, somewhere in the mid-5 second range, and has tenacious grip from its all wheel drive system.

If this interests you, check it out for sale on ebay.
