 Lancia Delta S4  
I drove one unit "Stradale" near to Milano (Italy), the S4 remember me at Ferrari F40. The thing most impressive is the torque, very heavy for a small engine. The unit what I drove has a modifications recomendated by Abarth for road use. The interior like me with must information, like a old race cars. Great car.
Rally Boy
The Delta S4 made its WRC debut on the 1985 Lombard RAC. Henri Toivonen finished 1st & Markku Alen 2nd, on its second outing Henri Toivonen won the 1986 Monte Carlo, Henri Toivonen also won the Milles Pistes in this car but it bit back with tragic concequences. 2nd May 1986 on the Tour of Corsica Henri Toivonen and Sergio Cresto were killed causing the banning of Group B and the Propsed Group S. The Delta S4 won a further 3 times during 1986 once with Massimo Biasion and twice with Markku Alen, one of these being the now infamous Sanremo Rally. After the season ended Like all Group B cars it was put into early retirement.
New for 1986 This car was considered as the epitamy of group B rallying. It flattened the already outragously quick Audi S1 and the pug 205 T16's. Boost could be as high as over 600bhp and Henri Toivenen lapped the portugese F1Gp track that year in a time quick enough to secure 6th on the Gp F1 grid! It and Toivenen were dominating rallying that year untill He and his co-driver were killed at the Corcica event after rolling off a cliff.Kankunen and peugeot were left to pick up the peices before group B was banned.
 Powerful Legend  
Great power, light car. This is why the group B was banned. This car is what group B was all about and this car is a legend for it's track performance and winning record even though it was only around for 3 years.
