Classic.

The original Delta improved by today's knowledge and materials.

A full technical rebuilt

The love for the Lancia Delta excelled since its first Group A rally victories were recorded. Sales accelerated and the affection for Lancia’s five-door hatchback continued to grow. After the WRC successes and the official production stop in 1994, the Delta was overtaken by time, but not forgotten. 

The upkeep and running costs of the Delta unfortunately turned out to be above average, causing for the widely ranging conditions in which they can be found today. The Maturo Classic specification eliminates the known weaknesses, upgrades the technical aspects and exceeds the expectations of owning a 30-year-old icon.
 
In short, the Maturo Classic spec is a Delta made more reliable, robust and competent without any visual changes. Offering future driving pleasure, without past technical failures.

Chassis

The chassis of the Lancia Delta was not specifically designed to cope with the forces of a 200hp engine combined with the superb grip levels achieved by the four-wheel drive system. This causes the chassis to flex, twist and eventually show cracks. Every Maturo spec is inspected on chassis damages, repaired and strengthened at key weak points with hardened Domex plating.

Optional
  • A full chassis rebuild can be offered, welding through over 250+ points. This is directly carried over from Maturo’s Stradale / Rally program. Mandatory when opting for the "ultimate" Classic spec, 340 hp and 450 nm torque.

Engine

The marvelous Lampredi designed 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine has proven to be competitive in the world of rallying. However problems like engine lubrication, timing belt malfunction and oil leakages are not uncommon, unfortunately. The Maturo Classic spec has a fully rebuilt engine eliminating these problems with all kinds of upgraded parts, depending on your spec. Currently we offer three engine rebuild levels: (1) Basic, (2) Performance and (3) Ultimate.

Key specs

  • Spec depending power output gains ranging from 230 hp to max 340 hp. Contact us for the full spec list with pricing.

Gearbox

The original Lancia manual transmission has never been a strong feature. The gearbox was fundamentally too weak to cope with the forces that went through it. Therefore, the Maturo Classic spec receives a fully rebuilt, strengthened gearbox. The improvements are specifically engineered to maximize durability and to cope with the more powerful Maturo rebuilt engine.
