The 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale owned by Stellantis chief design officer Ralph Gilles is available for purchase.

The 1992 lancia delta integrale is available for purchase 2 1Presently available for purchase on Bring a Trailer, this vehicle is an Evo I variant featuring boxed fender flares to accommodate a wider track, an adjustable rear spoiler, and a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine sending power to all four wheels via a 5-speed manual transaxle.

This particular model is among the various performance iterations of the original Delta, which was manufactured as rally homologation specials. Initially introduced at the 1979 Frankfurt auto show as a simple economy vehicle, Lancia quickly transformed it into a formidable rally car that maintained its competitiveness during the Group B and Group A periods of the 1980s and early 1990s.

The Evo I made its debut in 1991 and was later replaced by the more potent Evo II version in 1993. This marked the end of an era, with Lancia exiting the rallying scene shortly after. Despite two additional Delta generations, they failed to match the performance capabilities of the original model. The Delta nameplate was eventually phased out in 2014, but there are now talks of Lancia introducing an electric Delta model in 2028.

Gilles' Delta Integrale Evo I was brought into the United States from Japan by a previous owner and was purchased by the Stellantis design chief in 2018, also through Bring a Trailer. Currently, it is being offered for sale on consignment at a dealership in Arizona, and it has accumulated a mileage of 63,000 miles. According to the auction listing, the engine underwent a rebuild after Gilles obtained the vehicle. At the moment of this publication, the highest bid stands at $42,850, and there are two days remaining in the auction.

The Delta Integrale is not the sole impressive car in Gilles' collection. He enlisted the help of Wisconsin's SpeedKore Performance Group to construct a 1968 Dodge Charger with a carbon-fiber body and a 1,000-hp Hellephant V-8 engine, referring to it as his ultimate "dream car."
