    I love the integrales. I remember seeing them around Rome when I was living there in the 80s. I have finally bought one. An EVO 1 Martini 6, one of 310 special editions made in 1992.

    Amazing fun to drive, stick shift, 210 hp so plenty to have an amazing driving experience but not to get yourself into too much trouble.

    On the special editions here is an extract from the Haggerty article

    The Evoluzione versions of the car formed the basis for 12 special editions. The two common themes of the special editions are apparent: those that feature a non-standard color and those that celebrate the rally heritage of the car. Production numbers of the special editions range from a dozen to several hundred. Among the special colors special editions are the Verde York (602), Giallo (220), Giallo Ferrari (295), Blu Lagos (205), and Bianca Perla (370). Among the rally heritage cars are the Martini 5 (400) and Martini 6 (310), Dealers Collection (179), Club Italia (15), Lancia Club (8), HiFi (25), and Final Edition (250). Some special editions were based on the Evo 1, while others used the Evo 2 platform, and sometimes an Evo 1 variant was reintroduced in Evo 2 form.

    When I was living in Europe after college (2010), I remember looking on mobile.de and asking myself if I land a real job (I had an internship then), what cool car can I get for 15-20k? I always went back to these. Now with them being USA legal their prices have shot up. Congrats and looks like a beautiful example!

    Behold the amazing Futurista by Automobili Amos in Italy. An amazing restomod from a Delta 16v donor. Only 20 made and sadly sold out.

    I think the most of the special edition Integrales are a case of a distinction without a much of difference (mostly a matter of special colors really). Two of them, however, stand out - Martini 6 and Final Edition. I absolutely love the interior of the Martini 6! So cool, so Italian!

    Enjoy!

    Yes agree, very Italian! The whole car is Italian, I grew up in Rome so have such fond memories of seeing them. The special editions are fun and agree mostly colors. I think all integrales are special, especially any EVO 1 or EVO 2.

    Well, with the exception of the Final Edition (it does some mechanical differences from other Evo 2s) all special editions are just a matter of appearance. I'm personally a real sucker for the interior of the Martini 6. Also, I believe there are fewer Martini 6s than 5s too if you care about this kind of thing. I guess numbers always matter but there are so many special editions of the Integrale that they end up being not quite so special.

    I have three other Lancias but have to admit that I've never driven an Integrale and this is where they supposedly really shine. An interesting fact - I bought a car from an amazing collection in Italy last year (the kind of place where you walk right past an F40 and a Miura to go to the really cool racing stuff) and the owner kept talking about how great Integrales are to drive...
