► A Singer for Lancias?
► Weighs just 1250kg
► Costs around €300,000
2018 is certainly the year of the restomod. After the stunning Paul Stephens 911 Clubsport, the exquisite Singer DLS study and Porsche’s own Project Gold, you’re now looking at the flamoyantly named Delta Integrale Futurista.
Unveiled at Grand Basel this week, the new/old car is the work of Eugenio Amos and his Automobili Amos company. Just like Singer’s take on the iconic 911, the Delta Integrale Futurista riffs on the design of the Lancia classic; but you’ll now find a carbonfibre front, wider aluminium body and more than 1000 new, reworked components.
Inside you’ll find a suitably retro-inspired interior too, based on the cabin in the Group B Delta S4 Stradale rally car. It's a mouth-watering prospect...
And the specs?
According to the Automobili Amos Instagram page, the Delta Integrale Futurista weighs just 1250kg, and puts out 330bhp. Creator Amos says it’ll cost around €300,000 (£270,000) when full production finally starts, so it won’t be cheap. We’re not sure how many will be made, but we’ll update this article when we find out.
Why are they restoring old Lancia Integrales?
Amos says the new car is part of his mission to Make Lancia Great Again, and describes his mission in more detail on a post in Instagram.
‘Well, this car means a lot to me. It represents my romantic vision in a world that is too aseptic, too fast, that runs like the wind, superficial and intangible,’ he wrote. ‘This car means that I had enough of the car world, both as a client before and as a manufacturer now.
'I long for a bygone, idealised time when men, values and substance were at the core of the product. Therefore this car is pure, analogic, raw and essential.’ Fair enough.
We’ll update this page when we know more about the new Delta Integrale Futurista.
