Yes, you do want it. Here’s the road version of one of the greatest ever rally cars, in a colourway that means you’ll never lose it in a car park. Lancia’s neat Guigiaro-designed Delta shopper was transformed for competition with four wheel-drive, huge blister wheel arches, spoilers front and rear - and a distinct bonnet bulge to house the two-litre 16-valve twin-turbocharged engine, uprated here to produce 290 bhp. Fast? You will be.


Open a back door to find no rear seats whatsoever. Instead, on this tastefully upgraded example, a full roll cage and securely-mounted spare wheel. Upfront, Recaro bucket seats are in black velour, three-point harnesses are there to keep you secure in the tighter curves on the way to Saturday brunch. Pedals are in aluminium, steering wheel is trimmed with Alcantara - and at every moment you’ll know you’re driving a close relative of a Monte Carlo rally-winner.
