Through mud and snow! Not much more complicated than this, of course…..but this video is 90 seconds of Lancia Fulvia daydreaming someone decided to film…videos like this remind me just how much I really dig the Fulvia…
I have tried for many years to shake my desires to want a Lancia Fulvia—-but nothing works. It still creeps up in my head all of the time.
This video doesn’t help my lust for one. Wow.
so aside from the severe obsession i’m starting to have for the standard Lancia Fulvia Coupe, another car which is EVEN rarer than the not-so-rare Fulvia Coupe is the Lancia Fulvia Zagato HF Competizione.
What i wouldn’t give to have this in my garage……the epitome of italian cool!! DO WANT…..really badly. *fantasizes*

listen to that V4! easily one of IEDEI’s top 5 dream cars……do want.
look at that road! it’s full of angry cliffs to fly off of…..those crazy italians…
the original Lancia Fulvia is a total legend……and adding to the legend is this rare, but fascinating rebodied Fulvia redone by Zagato and sold in Limited Edition. A couple of years ago, i had a chance to by an unrestored one of these, but passed it up just due to the huge amount of cash it would have costed to get it back to shape. One day though, when i have enough loot to swing around, i want a Fulvia HF and a Fulvia Sport Zagato in my garage…….together!
taken from the Ultimate Car Page:
“In April 1965 the first prototype was ready and it was Elio Zagato himself who conducted the road tests. Before the end of the year the production of the Fulvia Sport 1.3 Zagato was started. As can be seen in the second picture, the rear hatch could be opened slightly electrically to improve ventilation while driving. The first production were powered by a 1.2 litre V4 engines, pumping out a decent 80 bhp. In 1967 the displacement was increased to 1.3 litres. This larger engine was available in two states of tune, 87 bhp for the Sport 1.3 and 93 bhp for the Sport 1.3S. In 1970 the Fulvia Sport was slightly restyled and a 115 bhp 1.6 litre engine was added to the line-up.”
Here are some of my favourite Fulvia Sport Zagato photographs:

The original Lancia Delta Integrale was a beast of a car. Obviously we never recieved it imported to the USA, so it was added to the mental list of “yes i want but i cannot have” and put aside into the closet.
Lately there’s been some talk of Chryslers being sold here as rebadged Lancia Deltas (see article http://www.motorauthority.com/blog/1036481_chrysler-lancia-to-share-products-delta-could-come-to-u-s ).
Could this mean that if a Delta Integrale or Delta HF is produced, then we might see one? Maybe as an ‘SRT’ model? Dodge Delta HF? Sounds funny i know…but it would be fantastic!
I can’t tell you what the article says, because i don’t know spanish. But the photos are great!

This is a new feature to the IEDEI blog—”Concept Car Wasteland”. This is where we’ll introduce you to a concept (obscure, hopefully), which you had no idea existed.
Here, we love the original Lancia Fulvia from the 60s….and I hope to own one, one day! In 1969, Ghia decided to present a concept version of the Fulvia with their own design cues and deemed it a special version, known as the Competizione. Never seen again since it’s original introduction….this car bears little resemblence to the Fulvia we all know and love—-but definitely has some Lamborghini cues, as well as maybe some Maserati and Alfa Romeo ones as well. Looks very italian nonetheless, and looks very much from the late 60s as it should i suppose!
