Description
 
We are happy to offer an exceptional Lancia 037 Rally Evolution II for sale. One of only 20 genuine Evo 2 cars, chassis #401 was registered alongside the 19 other Evo II models on November 3rd, 1983. It received the license plate TOW67769. This 037 Rally took part in one rallye of the 1984 World Championship. Driven by Markku Alen, the car entered the San Remo rallye held in late September 1984. Prior to the start of the race, team manager Giorgio Pianta stated that the 2 cars entered by the official Abarth-Martini team were the best cars the factory could produce. By this, he meant the cars were the lightest and most powerful ones ever built, developing 330 bhp and weighting in at 963 kg for the Alen car. As the returning winner, Alen was set to pave the way for all other competitors. Unfortunately, he punctured a tire in the very first stage, immediately dropping to 17th place. Alen fought hard, making his way back to 5th place. Unfortunately, in the 27th stage, his head gasket gave up and forced him to retire. At the end of its racing career, it was purchased by the current owner. The car has remained strictly in the condition it was at the end of the 1984 season until very recently. The owner decided to undertake a service by renowned specialist Volta. The mechanics were completely overhauled and serviced. Volta carried out the work under the consultancy of Sergio Limone, the development engineer of the 037 Rally program in the early 1980s. Volta described the car as the only specimen of 037 still in a perfectly original condition. To the best of our knowledge, it is the very last car to have its original titanium rollcage. It is a unique opportunity to purchase a genuine ex-works Group B rally car; one of only a handful that still exist today, and without a doubt one of the very best ones in existence. This Lancia 037 Rallye Evolution II is immediately available in Italy with its original license plate and Italian registration.
