Italeri continues in their tradition of immortalizing great Italian cars in plastic. This, their latest kit is presented to us in CAD for today, it represents the Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V San Remo 1989 in 1/12th scale.
The "HF" 4WD performance version of the Lancia Delta road is an icon of rally car history. The Delta HF was produced in the second half of the 1980s and took part in the World Rally Championship from 1987 to 1988, won two world championship titles and took first place in numerous races such as the prestigious Monte Carlo Rally and that of San Remo. 
Through its development, the Lancia Delta Integrale, took part in races until 1993, won another 5 world championship titles and consolidated the "Palmares" in the Italian company's off-road competitions.
There were many aesthetic details that made it more muscular, such as the enlarged fenders and new air inlets on the bonnet, the technology and engine of the HF Integrale have also been improved. The performance of the 1995 cc turbo engine, for example, has been increased to 185 hp.
In 1989 the Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16v participated in the San Remo Rally with an original and eye-catching “Rosso Corsa” livery. Conceived by the racing team’s "main sponsor" and designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, it was inspired by the rally cars of the 60s and 70s such as the Flavia and the Fulvia. Miki Biasion and Tiziano Siviero led the Delta “in red” to victory, consolidating Lancia's tradition and legendary status in the world of rally driving.
