Stradale Lancia Delta S4: the legacy of the Wild Group B
This is one of only 164 copies were sold of radical Sport Quattro, although the brand produced little more than the 200 units required to approve the model rallies. Leaving the factory Ingolstadt on December 17, 1984 and it was first recorded by Audi AG in May 1985. Before he was two years old he was sent back to the factory, where he replaced the original aluminum engine block by a steel, tougher and eliminated recurring problems of cracks and porosity of the original aluminum blocks.
Only 164 copies were sold.
In the last 10 years, this issue has had a very peaceful life because it has only traveled about 10,000 of the 90,500 kilometers that marks its odometer, and since 2012 it has been stored in a warehouse, although it has been uprooted and moved regularly. In 2010 he suffered a reconstruction of Mayer MTM engine, where his real power was confirmed, 348 hp and 348 Nm of torque, anything above 306 hp and 350 Nm of torque announcing the official figures of the time.
Like other special approvals from Group B, as the Lancia Delta S4 or Ford RS200, the Audi Sport Quattro will remain one of the rarest and most sought-after classic sports models, and although its price has risen considerably in recent years still has room for growth. It is what we would consider a safe value.
