The winner of this Lancia will pay well over $200,000.

Rad-era cars have been all the rage for a few years now, but a handful of iconic and legendary models have risen to the top. The Lancia Delta Integrale, whose heritage lies on countless rally stages around the world, is one. Even rough examples of the car draw big dollars at auction.

This one, however, is not rough. This 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Martini 5 Evoluzione is one of just 400 units produced for the model year, and shows just 104 miles on its odometer.

Under the hood lies a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that made more than 200 horsepower. These cars could do 0-60 mph in around six seconds, which was a big deal in the 1990s and is still fairly quick by today’s standards. The Lancia comes with all-wheel drive and a five-speed manual gearbox.

Inside, a classic three-spoke steering wheel and oh-so-neat suede-like seats come with red contrasting stitching. This is a 1990s car from a tiny Italian automaker, so the interior finishes are simple and (mostly) straightforward. The old-school tape deck stereo sits atop a row of confusingly-labeled buttons, but in most other ways, the Lancia’s cabin looks delightfully utilitarian.

At the time of this article, the Lancia’s price tag had ballooned to $244,444, but there is still a half-hour left to go. Many auctions see the final price jump quickly in the final moments of bidding, as people desperately try to get hands on the car. Outside of massively-priced supercars, this is one that we’ll say easily warrants its deep six-figure price tag.
