Love it, hate it or just plain don’t understand it… The Lancia Hyena is just that.
The floor-pan structure, power unit and foot-work is of the Delta Integrale. Everything else moving upward was designed by the late Marco Pedracini, possibly better known as Zagato to you younger chaps.
The two-door body is made up of composite/alloy, as for the interior, you will find yourself overwhelmed with carbon fiber. Because of this the Hyena is about 200 kilograms lighter than the original Integrale.
This particular Hyena did make a pit stop in Japan before coming home to Canada. The exhaust system and entire foot work department was completely swapped with everything PRESTO JAPAN had to offer.
It’s not something you see everyday, let alone drive one. I had the pleasure of just that this evening. Only 24 of these were ever made, and there is only one in the whole of North America.
The superior suspension setup consisting of Koni Yellows with Eibach springs were taken out of the Integrale Evo a couple nights ago, from the car to it’s final resting place, the trash bin. For it’s replacement the Evo was given a brand new set of custom made 24-way adjustable bound and rebound Leda coilovers paired to some Eibach springs.
Because spending money on expensive pretty lug nuts are a must, extended studs were installed to the front and rear hubs, replacing the traditional European concept of using wheel bolts.
A bunch of new parts came in over the weekend which included a complete new set of headlights with bezel.
Group A side mirrors… they are completely useless if you are wondering, they are there just because they look so damn good!
Momo steering wheel which was gifted by a dear friend.
Derlin ball shift knob, boot and bezel.
Lastly for this show and tell, Speedline Corse Montecarlo magnesium wheels.
