Italeri second version of its Lancia Delta HF Integrale in 1/12 scale, in this case with the decoration used at the time of its debut in the 1989 Sanremo rally.
Maintaining the same characteristics of the first version, with 100% new molds, photo-etched, accessories such as hoses, screws and springs... and with the front and rear hoods, as well as the front doors, openable, it will incorporate a new decal sheet, and in the absence of confirmation, a new set of wheels for the Gravel configuration.
Be that as it may, the red Martini has made us fall in love at first sight!

The Lancia Delta Gr.A marked an entire era in its different evolutions.
In 1990, the Gr.A regulations required the mounting of a 40 mm diameter restrictor on the intake to limit the passage of air to the engine and, therefore, limit the power of the cars.
In order to counteract the decrease in power with a higher level of torque, Lancia decided to mount a 16V cylinder head on the 4-cylinder 2-liter engines of its Delta.
The improvement that this meant is beyond doubt, and even Lancia's satellite team, the Jolly Club, recognized that this was approximately half a second per kilometer.
The Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V made its debut with victory at the 1989 San Remo rally, with a memorable comeback on the last day by Miki Biasion to win by just 5 seconds. If the turbo had something to do with it, it is something that only a few know..
