The Lancia Delta was a successful four-wheeled vehicle manufactured by Lancia from 1979 to 1994 and designed by renowned Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. It was also sold by Saab Automobile as the Saab 600 in Sweden, where logistics were helped by Saab, helping the Delta be better-suited for colder climates and less prone to rust than other Lancias. The Delta's key competitors were the Volkswagen Golf, Vauxhall Astra/Opel Kadett and Ford Escort. At the time of its launch, it was recognised as one of the most stylish cars in its class in Europe.
The Delta HF Integrale was the most famous of the Delta range with its 4WD structure and powerful turbo-charged engine. This variation of the HF model also set a record for the most consecutive Constructor's Championship titles in the World Rally Championship, winning six years in a row between 1987 and 1992, with 46 victories in total.
In stark contrast to the commercial Delta models was the Delta S4 which had been designed specifically for rallying and was categorised as a 'Group B' race car. Topping off its accomplishments, the Delta was also voted Car of the Year in 1980.
The HF 4WD was empowered to supersede the Delta HF turbo as the performance icon of the range after the proposed Group S and Group B categories of the rallying world were rendered obsolete. With experience produced from prior development of the S4 rally car, the HF 4WD was expected to perform, and in no way disappointed as it the HF Turbo already had noteworthy handling for a front-wheel drive car.
