Wait until you find out how much it costs.
It's a good time to be a fan of legendary Lancia rally cars. Earlier this year, Manifattura Automobili Torino gave the Stratos a new lease of life, and now the Lancia Delta has been reborn by Automobili Amos, a company founded by racing driver Eugenio Amos who is on a mission to "make Lancia great again." After teasing the project a few months ago, the company has shared more details about the reborn Delta ahead of its debut at the Grand Basel in Switzerland this week.
Called the Lancia Delta Futurista, the restomod is based on a 1989 Lancia Delta Integrale, which has been tastefully redesigned with copious amounts of carbon fiber. It features a wider aluminum body, a carbon fiber front, and a stunning interior inspired by the Group B Delta S4 Stradale featuring Recaro front seats, aluminum pedals, and bespoke door panels.
"This car means a lot to me", Amos wrote on Instagram. "It represents my romantic vision in a world that is too aseptic, too fast, that runs like the wind, superficial and intangible. This car means that I had enough of the car world, both as a client before and as a manufacturer now." He describes the passion project as "pure, analog, raw and essential." Under the hood is a reworked engine that produces 330 horsepower, which is a significant upgrade over the 210-hp Delta Evoluzione. Thanks to the lightweight construction, the car tips the scales at 2,756 pounds.
Credit where it's deserved, Amos has done a commendable job updating the Delta's design while still retaining the original car's character. There is a downside, however: the price. All we can say is you need to have a lot of love for the Lancia Delta, because the restomod costs a whopping €300,000, which is around $347,000. Only 20 conversions are being made, one of which has already been snapped up by the founder of Singer Vehicle Design.
