This particular 'Group A' Integrale is a very well know car having previously been owned and campaigned by Rodney Bennet, a respected authority on Lancia Integrales and a successful competitor in these remarkable little Italian cars.
'Competitive Rally Cars' and 'immaculate bodywork' very seldom appear in the same sentence and, after one particular "that's not going to polish out" incident during a Scottish Championship rally, our discerning vendor decided that a new bodyshell was probably in order. With the best will in the world, there is no point in having a sparkling new shell and bolting on a lot of well-used bits so the decision was taken to rebuild this Integrale professionally to a very high standard The brief to his engineers was – “I want it built to a high standard, competitive, and remain eligible for Group A”. The specification now includes an engine producing approx 300 bhp whilst giving consideration for reliability and low down torque, Proflex suspension, a Bacci Romano 6-speed sequential gearbox, Gems EM40 ECU, Gems displays, and Carbon fibre panels etc. We understand that the final account for this complete resurrection was a, not insignificant, £125,000.
Following the rebuild, our vendor and his team of experienced engineers have continued to develop and maintain this Integrale to the highest standards. Having been prepared ready for an end of 2018 event and subsequently not used, this competitive Lancia is now offered in our vendors own words as “100% ready to go”!
Offered with a guide value representing only a fraction of the initial build cost, this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a sophisticated Group A Integrale and experience the associated power and four-wheel drive traction of these special cars. Our vendor, along with his team of experienced engineers, has developed this Integrale into a respected and proven competitor in the Scottish Championship. Having been fully prepared to compete at the closing stages of 2018, and subsequently never used, this car is now offered 100% rally ready.
