A ‘SUPER CAR’ THAT WILL NEVER COME BACK.
BUT IT DID.
The hyper popular Lancia Delta Integrale of the 80s was a rally and road voracious winner and passion dispenser for - you guessed it - passionate people. Those who craved for genuine engine-induced emotions and who had the ambition to do more, to push harder, to reach higher.
Bringing back a glorious past so ingrained in the souls of an entire generation, meant creating a concept sincere enough to preserve and celebrate the legacy, the great respect and enthusiasm of the Lancia Delta’s faithful following too.

By using its original chassis as a ‘donor car’, Automobili Amos therefore went onto revise and rework its ‘body and brains’, giving it more muscles and resolving quality control issues. By rethinking every component, an optimized, high-performance beast was born, expressing the real appeal of the iconic 80s model and matching it with a set of contemporary connotations.
A NOTSTALGIC ARTISANAL AFFAIR
The revisitation of the Lancia Delta Integrale by Automobili Amos was intended as a taste-tailored project, built to reflect the individual dream car of every client. The basic bodywork, therefore, was untouched but appears ‘pumped up’; an intervention designed digitally and then tested through ‘clay modelling’ before the final features of its silhouette were actually determined.
Among the main traits are composite materials - carbon fiber above all - crafted using motorsports technologies, with the aim of reducing the vehicle’s weight to about 1.250 kg. Also, giving way to an exciting new sense of geometry, is the characteristic carbon fiber ‘cofango’, the all-in-one hood and fender style, upped by a frontal façade boldly quoting the Lancia Beta Montecarlo. An unmissable third empowering accent, is the elimination of the back doors in favour of a 3-door design with a boot inspired by the Lancia Delta S4.

The front suspensions were also entirely redesigned, fixing the recurring understeering stance of the original Lancia Delta Integrale by applying meticulous engineering expertise to obtain a more fluid and precise swerving action, whereas the custom-made integrated roll cage was installed to increase the car’s rigidity and safety overall.
A series of elemental upgrades, such as the integration of fender flares, LED lights, turbofan rims, handles, grills and mouldings have all undergone a restyling process, keeping in mind that the model’s recognizability was a must.
