    Probably one of the most fun cars I have ever owned : The Lancia Integrale EVO 16V...what a car. I have not seen one in the US so far.

    Does anyone knows about an owner of such car in the US ? Please let me know !

    Thanks,

    Markus

    To my knowledge Lancia hasn't imported a car to the US in several decades and the Delta never made it here. There was a great thread about a Delta here very recently so I'm sure if you dig around in this forum you'll find the post. A great read where the current owner and former both ironically belong to this forum. They're absolutely beautiful cars and such a shame they never made the transition here to the States.

    But it is not in US.

    Here is my new adquisition, I love it as much as the Ferrari. :D Not an EVO though, just the original Delta Integrale 16V

    one of the most iconic and respected italian cars. Every one has a soft spot for a delta integrale, a true masterpiece. Wish we had them here.

    There are two of them know to be in the US. I believe both were on the east coast. There are several 16V motors running around in Scorpions here in various configurations.

    I think one of the owners of Driving Impressions in New Jersey has one. I'm not certain of the model though. They run the track stores at Lime Rock and Summit Point.

    There is a dealer here in Vancouver which will be offering one for sale soon (which I'm tempted to buy if the price is reasonable). And there is another one already here (silver one below), plus a Yellow one seen at last years Italian Car show... That'll make three.

    They are street legal here now! :)

    I've had a fascination with those little cars ever since I saw a short video on them. Forget about the WRX and Lancer Evo, the Delta Integrale is still my favorite.

    Peter, thanks for those pics, I had no idea that any ever came to Canada.

    Well, they never did officially. These cars are here because their owners privately/personally imported them into here recently, as they meet the minimum age requirement for import, set by Transport Canada. Any vehicle 15 years old and older can be imported without needing to meet our lighting/bumper/emissions regulations.

    How much are good Integrales going for nowadays? One of the coolest and most unknown cars of all time. Only a friend of mine who is really into rallying knows about the Integrale. Nobody else I know has heard of it let alone what it looks like. Sad really. But its still one of my favorite cars.

    I was behind an Integrale some years back on the Taconic Parkway here in NY.

    Probably one of the guys from Driving Impressions.

    Buddy of mine had one in Italy-great car.

    My father almost bought a Lancia Beta sedan; he ended up buying a Fiat 131 which became my first car.

    Would love to have one of those babies then I would have Alfa, Maserati and Lancia. Only two to go after that! I'm surprised that someone does'nt import these and resell them...I'm sure there would be a market.

    but neither will be allowed for purchase in USA

    That isn't true.

    You could import them under the show and display stipulation, but that isn't to say that it would not be a huge pain in the a$$.

    There was one for sale near me last year (a regular integrale, not an evo), for €15k (I think, I'm starting to doubt if it was 15 or 18k)

    Which Ford RS? Sierra Cosworth RS or RS200 Rally? There are both types here in Vancouver, with probably a couple of the Sierra Cosies around, as there was a specialist who was bringing them in and was a parts distributor as well. The place I mentioned earlier who is selling the Lancia Delta also has a Sierra Cosworth sedan for sale too:
