NOTE: THIS VEHICLE IS LOCATED IN DENIA, SPAIN, but I ship to the USA. Please check my feedback, and please read the entire listing before bidding.
I am an American, living in Spain, and I sell and export vehicles to the USA regularly. Although shipping costs are not included in the price of the sale, I work every month with an established worldwide shipper and will work directly with the buyer to arrange delivery to the USA. I will drop the vehicle off at the port of Valencia for you at no additional cost, prepare all the proper documentation for shipping to the USA, and handle all the US customs and importation on the USA side.
If you would like me to handle the shipping, customs paperwork, and everything for you, the cost is a flat-rate of $2500, port-to-port, to your choice of Baltimore, MD or Jacksonville, FL. No additional costs. No work on your part. You just pick the car up from the port, fully cleared and released. NOTE: Other ports are now available at slight additional cost, including ports on the west coast of the United States. Inquire for details.
Once the vehicle is in your possession, you will also have all the documents you need to register the car in 49 states (California excepted). I can even arrange transportation within the USA, from the port to your driveway. In short, I am here to help with every step of the process of delivering this vehicle to you.
You are of course welcome to fly here and test the car for yourself before you bid, but if that is not feasible, I will be happy to take additional photos, videos, etc. and send them to you. Whatever you need. We can speak on the telephone, or by Skype, so you can see the vehicle in real time before you bid.
If you have any questions, please ask and I will post as many answers here as possible.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?A stunning, low-mileage, rust-free example from a private collection in Madrid, this Integrale is beautiful inside and out and needs nothing. Always garaged, it wears all its original paint and carries all it original glass, with the only exterior enhancement coming from the fitment of an Evoluzione rear spoiler. It is straight, never cosmetically restored, and sits aggressively on slightly lowered Koni suspension.
The bodywork is undamaged and the original Rosso Monza paint shines beautifully with no dents or nicks and only the lightest wear commensurate with the age and mileage. All exterior trim and details are in excellent condition, and the original wheels show no appreciable rash or wear.
Inside, the factory Recaro seats wear their original gray dimpled alcantara fabric, with no tears or split seams, and the dashboard is original with no warpage or cracks. The sportline steering wheel, factory shift knob and original carpeting are all in excellent shape. All the gauges and lights work as original and the doors shut with reassuring heft and solidity.
Underneath, the chassis is clean and rust free, with no damage anywhere. There is no rust in the unibody, no rust in the shock towers (front or rear) and no rust in the hatch surround. No rust anywhere.
It is an extremely good looking car, with excellent curb appeal, that draws crowds wherever it goes.
WHAT'S IT LIKE TO DRIVE?We have spent the past 15 months painstakingly mechanically restoring this car to its present condition. Originally an 8v Integrale, it has been fitted with a fully rebuilt 16v engine and related electronics. Overhauled from the block up, the engine features a new (not machined) crankshaft, new factory connecting rods, new forged pistons, all-new valves and valvetrain, new timing belt, balance shaft belt and tensioners, new injectors, Evoluzione turbocharger (running stock boost), new clutch kit and flywheel, new alternator, all new bearings, seals and gaskets... everything. After the rebuild the engine management software was dialed in precisely, and after 600 break-in miles the oil and filter were changed and it is now broken in, completely fresh, running perfectly, and monstrously strong.
A twist of the key fires the engine instantly and it settles into an smooth but menacing-sounding idle with no smoke or noise. Release the new clutch and you're off, because the little Lancia is perfectly happy trundling along in modern traffic.
Find a little daylight, though, and when you deck the throttle the Integrale pulls ferociously, with surprising muscle low in the rev range and an increasingly frenetic urgency as the boost builds. At full chat it's a bloody quick car, and with an Evo 1 power output coupled to the lower weight of the 8v chassis it will show its heels to a factory Evo 2 without too much work.
Gearchange is light and direct up and down, with no hesitation or balkiness, and the steering is precise with outstanding feedback. Grip from the AWD chassis is, well... pretty legendary, and the balance of the chassis on twisting stretches of tarmac, mated to the slightly lower and stiffer Koni suspension, allow you to use the performance of the car very confidently - much more so than many performance cars of this era.
It's arguably one of the best drivers cars of all time, the Integrale, and this example is particularly strong, particularly fresh, and dialed in perfectly. If you love to drive, really love to drive, there are few cars better.
