Get motivated for an all-out assault on your Monday! Beep beep!
Students of history will remember how Porsche came to dominate the legendary Group C era: the Porsche 956/962 was totally reliable and Porsche built a gazillion of them, outlasting all of its faster, more fragile rivals for nearly a decade. The first such car was the turbo Ferrari-powered Lancia LC2, a car too fast to…
The best thing about this car is not that it looks like a 1990s fever dream memory of a 1970s Lancia Stratos. No, it’s that it’s powered by two inline-five cylinder engines joined at a common transmission. This is the 1997 Sbarro Ionos, and I love it and its absurd weirdness.
Autodromo just came out with an updated version of their Group B watch and, like the cars it uses for inspiration, they’ve called it the Evoluzione. Naturally, they got a Group B rally car along for the promo work.
I strongly believe that the Lancia Delta S4 Group B prototype has to be the nastiest, deadliest and most potent automobile ever created by a major car company, mostly because it’s powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine built by crazy people.
The Lancia Delta S4 Stradale, ladies and gentlemen.
Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
You simply can not convince me not to like the Lancia Thesis.
Our pals over at Carwow convinced one of their artists, Yasid, to mock up a bunch of rally cars. Not just any rally cars, though — the goal was to take the modern re-births of cars that once had rich rallying history (well, mostly), and see how their modern interpretations would look in full rally kit. I think the…
Most of us, thanks to years of muscle memory, still pound our hands squarely into the center of the steering wheel when we need to use the horn, urgently. I just like to think of the possible outcomes of that action in this car, the Lancia Orca.
I’m happy our pals at the Classic Car Club Manhattan just got a nice Lancia Delta Integrale 16V from Poland. I really am. But now, I think it’s time for Europeans to hide their Lancias before more and more Americans get the same idea.
The 49th Mecsek Rally in South-West Hungary turned up with a relatively small field, but the Historic European Championship still had some machines to witness.

Some automotive enthusiasts groups get the good life. OEM factory parts support, publicity, sponsors and even international forums or events. Some others aren’t so lucky.
How do you sell a premium supermini designed by the same guy who did the DeTomaso Pantera one year after the world realized Judgement Day is upon us? Fiat went with a Marilyn Monroe wannabe sexbot, of course.
Every motorsport fan has a favorite driver, a favorite team and a favorite car, but how many can mention a favorite racing car livery, so easily? Fortunately, I can think of many—and that’s why, in my regular series, we’ll be bringing you a collection of outstanding examples of motor racing liveries, both well-known…
The thing about the Delta HF Turbo is that Martini livery or not, you want an unmolested car. A friend of mine went all the way from Hungary to the Netherlands to get one without any "upgrades," but even that couldn't be as clean as this time warp, headed for auction with just 31 delivery miles.
[How come new luxury car designs have tons of squiggles? I much prefer this ultra smooth 1998 Lancia Dialogos Concept's approach. Photo: Lancia]
Lego builder Piterx makes gorgeously detailed Technic replicas of real-life vehicles. The latest is a motorsports legend: The Lancia Stratos, one of the most fearsomely beautiful cars to ever blast down a rally stage. And thanks to dual R/C motors, this Piterx model is as fast and drift-happy as its real-life brethren.
