Three months after the first renderings of the car appeared online, Automobili Amos officially launched the Lancia Delta Futurista – a restomod project based on the legendary Lancia Delta Integrale.
The car that debuts at the Grand Basel Show in Switzerland on the 6th of September, is based on a Lancia Delta I Integrale 16v (1989-1991) donor car but features a redesigned body, reworked underpinnings and a new interior.
The body is converted to a 3 door, with hand crafted aluminium body panels, wider fenders, modern headlights and tailights and a unique carbon fiber fascia. The hood, engine cover, trunk, rear spoiler and rear bumper are also made from carbon fiber, resulting in a 1,250 kg weight.
The interior which is inspired by the unique Lancia Delta I S4 Stradale (1985-1986) , has suede upholstery, Recaro seats, aluminium pedals and carbon fiber details.
Eugenio Amos, founder of the company and Lancia fanatic, wrote about the new model: “This car means a lot to me. It represents my romantic vision in a world that is too aseptic, too fast, that runs like the wind, superficial and intangible.”
Automobili Amos didn't provide the detailed specifications of the car, however we know that under the bonnet, the turbocharged 2.0 liter engine produces 330hp sending the power to all four wheels combined with a reworked transmission and a new differential and main shaft.
The company announced that they will only produce 20 examples of the Lancia Delta Futurista, with a hefty price tag of €300,000 (about $484,000 aud).
