Great thread and fantastic build, OP. beerbowbow

Suggestion to dgslade - why don't you start your own thread, rather than hijacking this one?

Hi,

Not got enough time to really enjoy the car this year or to post on PH. I did decide on the Martini Livery though. Have also replaced the RSR suspension with 41mm Bilsteins.

Hello Nasos,

Sorry about the late reply. I don't use an idle control valve. We mapped the Motec for cold start instead. MAP sensor takes pressure readings from the inlet manifold we made ourselves.

Wow what a car! I was just driving up to wheatcroft island today and saw it a couple of cars in front of me. I was desperate to try and get closer for a better look but by the time the other cars in front had fannied about getting on the island you were long gone! It looks incredible! As soon as I saw the external mountings for the rear bumper, I knew it was a serious bit of kit!

Only just stumbled upon this thread, and it's warmed the cockles and tugged the heartstrings.....another compliment to add to all the rest!
Regrettably one criticism!!! White was nice, Martini one step too far for me. Merely personal preference though.
My little toy's façade seems a little more subtle?? BUT still a Delta! Bella.

1988

Purchased as a new “Competition Use” road car from Lancia in September 1988 by Mr M Price of Prestbury, Gloucestershire who then had it prepared for stage rallying with the help of John Brain from Bob Brain Developments.

Driving & Ownership

The car has covered just 3100 miles since I finished the build. It is taxed and MOT’d and I use it for road use on sunny weekends. I originally planned to race it in one of the classic car race series or use it for track days but I have never found any spare time to do this.

Driving it on open roads is a complete blast. It has a huge amount of power and sounds amazing. The power and torque are addictive. The engine produces 400bhp on it’s lowest map on hardly any boost. Turbo lag is virtually non existent because the engine breaths so easily. On map three at just over 2 bar pressure the engine is producing around 575bhp / 550 ft lbs Torque.

Reliability has been excellent. Because all the cars electronics have been replaced with the Motec Power Distribution system there are no fuses or relays to fail. Also the wiring loom made by DC Electronics is a full race spec loom and this has replaced the old Italian wiring loom. This car has never not started or let me down.

Bodywork is in excellent condition and needs no attention. The Martini livery can be removed if not to your liking. Personally I think it looks fantastic……it’s a rally car after all.

I’m looking for offers around £75,000.00

It would be an amazing car to have in your collection and it’s also an appreciating classic asset.

I would consider a part exchange for a modern sports car.

Kind Regards,

David.

Hi,
Just to add closure on this thread. The Delta has now sold and gone to its new owner. Everybody has said I must be mad to sell it but there are so many other cars out there to enjoy. Building the Delta was stressful and emotional at times. :-) using it on the open roads for the last three or four years have been a blast.

Cheers,

David.

For me, one of the most emotive liveries in motorsport. Can't see myself being excited over anything recent. Probably just nostalgia, still. Gorgeous.

Awesome car! What are the ratings & length of the bilstein inserts? I’ve been building a car & have made the strut bodies but can’t remember the exact ones I had 15 years ago the only thing sticking in my head is 400 150 inserts I got them from bob brain developments uk like I said 15 years ago!
