It’s difficult not to mention Lancia when talking about motorsport in the Eighties. A key contributor to the infamous Group B as well as other classes, Lancias from that decade are definitely favourites of race car collectors and highly sought after, especially works Lancias. Currently, six fierce Lancia racing machines are available for sale on the same platform.
Curated by Irish-American entrepreneur and racing driver John Campion and dubbed “The Campion Collection”, the six formidable Lancias are all covered in famous Martini livery and certified by Abarth Classiche. A mix of three road-racing cars and three rally cars offers an extensive racing experience for the new owner and all of them are filled with glorious history.
First is the 1981 Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo Group V which took the class victory at Le Mans and World Endurance Champion of makes in 1980 and 1981, followed by the 1982 Nürburgring 1,000 km race-winning Lancia LC1 Group V. The Lancia LC2 Group C from the following year produces over 800 bhp thanks to the special-built Ferrari V8 with twin KKK turbochargers and was driven by an all-star team.
As for the rallies, the Lancia 037 Rally Evo 2 Group B from 1984 was one of the 20 examples ever built. The 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Corsa Group B was a winner of the 1986 Rally 1000 Miglia, and the 1988 Lancia Delta HF Integrale 8V Group A taking 36 World Rally stage victories as a works machine and winning both Rallye de Portugal and Olympus Rally.
