It's a great modern classic.

A meticulously maintained 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione I, previously owned by Stellantis' Chief Design Officer Ralph Gilles, is now up for grabs on Bring a Trailer. Imported from Japan and acquiring a mere 101,000 kilometers (~63,000 miles) on its odometer, this rally-bred icon has been subject to a comprehensive engine rebuild and various tasteful upgrades under Gilles' stewardship.

The car's Rosso Monza exterior is complemented by Evolution I’s hallmark wide fenders and adjustable rear spoiler, not to mention the striking 15″ Speedline alloy wheels wrapped in Kumho Ecsta V720 tires. This Delta Integrale doesn’t just impress with its looks; its turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine boasts enhancements such as Colombo & Bariani camshafts and a Walkers Garage exhaust manifold, all contributing to a formidable power delivery to all four wheels via a five-speed manual transaxle.

Inside, the cabin features gray cloth-trimmed Recaro seats, a carbon-fiber shifter surround, and modern comforts such as air conditioning and a Pioneer stereo system. The driving experience is further enriched with a MOMO steering wheel and shift knob, alongside Veglia instrumentation that captures the essence of its rally pedigree.

Offered through dealer consignment in Arizona, this collector's dream includes manufacturer’s literature, a Japanese service book, comprehensive service records, spare parts, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Michigan title. It represents a rare opportunity to own a piece of rally history, meticulously curated by one of the automotive industry's most respected figures.

With its blend of performance upgrades and well-preserved originality, Ralph Gilles' 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo I stands as a testament to the enduring allure of Italian engineering and design finesse.
