Lancia 037 was a mid-engine car created for competing in Group B. It was designed by Pininfarina, Abarth, Dallara and the project manager, engineer Sergio Limone.
Only 200 were built to comply the rules.
An independent double wishbone suspension was used on both the front and rear axles, with dual shock absorbers, on steel subframe and most body panels made from kevlar.
It had 2.0 liter engine carried over from Fiat 131 Abarth, but carb was replaced with fuel injection and supercharger. Transmission was ZF transaxle. In final version it had 325hp.
Lancia took the 1983 World Rally Championship Constructors' title with Walter Röhrl and Markku Alen as a drivers, despite serious competition from the 4WD Audi Quattro.
