Well, that is a bit of history I suppose so it is special.
However, I recorded this car for sale in the online database in July 2012 for half that amount.
Since being interested in Deltas when I spot a non-integrale for sale they get recorded in the database with the For Sale price - just for information and because there are so few.

It has solved the mystery of Lancia Delta 16 M-T that appears on howmanyleft - it is the only one !

I think I recall the same car up for sale earlier in the year for around 3k, so looks like someone is making a nice mark up!!!  8)

It's a hard one as that car is now unique.

It's a bit like the Viola integrale that is always for sale for 85K.

I think the price reflects the location of the showroom. 

We drove through Sandbanks and got the ferry from the end last month and didn't really get what the excitement might be for the place.  Then again it was hardly the season for it.

Coincidentally we were going to get the ferry yesterday but it wasn't running - the Delta's still there!

Absolutely mint HF Turbo(seats never sat on without covers, 30k miles, 1 owner) failed to attract 5k on eBay this week. Was tempted to look as it was in Doncaster. Not good timing two weeks before Christmas though.

Well, Neil, now seems to be the time to have a word to see if he is desperate !!!!  After all, what is wrong with an early Christmas present, even if it is to yourself !!!!!!!

Yes, I saw that one (and recorded it in the database) and whilst it looks about as good as you'd get, you're into 8v integrale territory. You'd have to find someone who wants an HF turbo and not an integrale (I guess). It'd be the same problem with the LX , too much and you could have an HF turbo - unless you absolutely want an LX (because of the extreme exclusivity! ;)) ....

The HF Turbo and 1300LX make a great comparison.

I did around 60k miles in an LX and 50k miles in an HF (and a few thousand in a 1600ie Prisma too). Very reliable cars overall, the carb LX made a great noise (with a sporty exhaust) and the 1600 went like the clappers!  

All were excellent cars, given the opportunity, I'd buy any one of these again as they have character by the bagfull and we'll never see cars like them again. As Lancia missed the opportunity to replace them with a decent mk2 model, its now an Alfa for my daily drive. :-[.
