The Evoluzione 1 Martini 6 Special Edition
One Drive Will Leave You Shaken and Stirred
Before The Fast and the Furious, there was the Lancia Delta HF Integrale, a practical hatchback, transformed into a rally car. See one on the road, and you’ll probably have one of two reactions: “What is that?” or “Is that what I think it is?” The answer to the first question is, of course, the Lancia Delta HF Integrale Martini 6 special edition – one of only 310 in existence. Its Martini 6 livery commemorates the rally-bred Deltas that won six consecutive Group A World Championships between 1987 and 1992. It’s a car with an intimidating racing pedigree that lives up to its own hype.
A History, Preserved
This car is a largely original example of Martini 6 special edition. It includes its original Martini livery, upholstery, radio, keys and tools – you’ll even see the original dealer stickers displayed in the rear window. According to its records, this Martini 6 was delivered to its original owner in Northern Italy in December 1992. The vehicle remained in this owner’s possession until we acquired it in 2016. As you can see, it is in remarkable condition.
Limited Edition Looks
The Martini 6 is an homage to winning. Right away you’ll notice the Martini racing stripes, the commemorative badges, and decals – and, of course, the Martini Racing roof-mounted rear spoiler. The front bumper and side panels proudly declare, “World Rally Champion” - as if to dispel any lingering doubts.
Inside, the tribute continues with super soft teal Alcantara Recaro seats that hold you securely in place as the car rockets through turns. The chrome-fiber shifter plate includes a numbered plaque (#182 of 310 produced).
The Lancia Delta Martini 6 is a Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione 1 dressed up in Martini Racing livery. Which means it has the coveted 16-valve engine and the last version non-catalyzed Integrale bragging rights (in other words, it has more power than the Integrales that were late to the party). The steering is quick, the shifting is like butter, and the suspension provides an unsurpassed connection to driving experience. Then, the turbo unexpectedly roars to life, and you’re propelled into another dimension. It’s in these moments of turbocharged euphoria, that you realize just how special this car truly is.
The Lancia Delta HF Integrale Martini 6 is a hatchback that continues to inspire a new generation of souped-up nerdy cars, like the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO and the Subaru WRX. It’s a car that’s sure to increase in value and notoriety, due to its low numbers and legendary heritage.
