A commemorative plaque on the console and WRC badges make note of the special edition trim.

1992 Lancia DELTA integrale EVO I : Details
Factory Homologation Special Road Version of Legendary Rally Champion
Never sold in the USA, now eligible for import under the 25-year rule. These are very exciting cars to drive and fairly practical to own. The Delta Integrale EVO I is one of the hottest, hot hatchbacks ever built. Very rare globally and virtually unknown in America, they have become very popular with savvy collectors recently and investment value is promising.
As a road car, the Integrale is a truly joyful experience. Just like on the rally stages, its big rivalry in the early days came in the form of the Audi Quattro, however the Delta was smaller, quicker and much lighter on its feet. The Integrale is a true drivers’ machine and delivers a huge amount of feel and feedback that makes them irresistible.
The first Evoluzione series cars were built at the end of 1991 and through 1992. These were to be the final homologation cars for the Lancia Rally Team, the last EVO series that actually was utilized as the basis for the rally cars. The EVO I had a wider track front and rear than earlier Deltas. The bodyside arches were extended and became more rounded. The wings were now made in a single pressing. The front strut top mounts were also raised and adjustable, which necessitated a front strut brace.
The engine was modified to produce 210 bhp (157 kW) at 5750 rpm. The engine was a 16-valve 2 Liter, fuel injected 4-cylinder, with balancing shafts. The HF version featured new valves, valve seats and water pump, larger water and oil radiators, more powerful cooling fan and bigger air cleaner. A larger capacity turbocharger with improved air flow and bigger inter-cooler, revised settings for the electronic injection/ignition control unit and a knock sensor, boost power output.
The Integrale EVO l had permanent 4-wheel drive, a front transversely mounted engine and five-speed gearbox. An epicyclic centre differential normally splits the torque 56 per cent to the front axle, 44 per cent to the rear. A Ferguson viscous coupling balanced the torque split between front and rear axles depending on road conditions and tyre grip. The Torsen rear differential further divides the torque delivered to each rear wheel according to grip available.
External details included: new grilles in the front bumper to improve the air intake for engine compartment cooling; a redesigned bonnet (hood) with new lateral air slats to further assist engine compartment ventilation; an adjustable roof spoiler above the tailgate; new five-bolt wheels with the same design of the rally cars; and a new single exhaust pipe.
Standard interior trim was premium grey Alcantara on the Recaro seats. The dashboard features a very comprehensive set of instruments. Compact, but remarkably space-efficient, the Delta body offers 4 doors, reasonable room in both front and rear seating areas and useful hatchback convenience.
