The original Delta improved by today's knowledge and materials.
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.
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.
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.
The most iconic feature of every Lancia Delta Integrale is undoubtedly its 4-wheel drive system, providing excellent grip in any circumstance. However, the Maturo Classic spec receives fully rebuilt, upgraded differentials and driveshafts. Making the best part of the car even better. Many of the improvements are fueled by Maturo’s Stradale / Rally program.
The original brake set up is fully rebuilt with specifically upgraded parts for improved stopping power and higher reliability. The appearance of the brakes is unaltered, the performance enhanced. This is perfectly in line with the Maturo Classic philosophy.
Optionally, our Rally proven performance braking system can be fitted. Sporting ventilated, 335mm front discs and 282mm rear with upgraded pads.
The original suspension set up has always been a pleasant blend between sporty and relatively comfortable. Therefore, the Maturo Classic spec is an upgraded original suspension set up receiving multiple upgrades that improve on the established handling characteristics and more importantly, enhance its durability. Optionally, a high performance electronically adjustable suspension set can be fitted with ride height control.
