Classic.

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

A technical rebuilt

The love for the Lancia Delta excelled since the 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.

Unfortunately, the upkeep and running costs of the Delta Integrale 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 Italian car.

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.

Upgrade options

The Maturo Classic specification is available in three different trim levels since every Delta owner has different wishes and purposes for their car. The levels range from an incredibly robust and reliable Delta Integrale to an extremely fast Delta with technical features derived directly from our Rally and Stradale specifications program. Each level comes with a power increase compared to the original Lancia Delta Integrale. If you are interested and would like to know more about the Maturo Classic specifications, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Performance Package | 290 hp and 400 Nm
  • Ultimate Performance Package | 340 hp and 450 Nm 

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 Upgrade Package" spec

Engine

The marvelous Lampredi designed 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine has proven to be competitive in the world of rallying fast and quite durable. However problems like engine lubrication, timing belt malfunction, oil leakages are not uncommon, unfortunately. The basic Maturo Classic spec has a fully rebuilt engine eliminating these problems with various upgraded parts such as an increased diameter width timing belt, modern ECU and much more. Optionally, things like forged pistons, steel conrods, upgraded lower block can all be specified to increase performance.

This entails a stronger gearbox housing, lighter flywheel, high torque clutch, improved gearbox axles and an upgraded visco clutch.
