Look at that interior! Look at the fitting of the seat fabric! Quality spelled out in 1-9-8-3. I found myself laughing at this page of a Lancia Prisma (4-door brother to the Delta) brochure from 1983……and i thought american cars were rubbish from that time….the horror!
I also love how poorly tailored the fabric is! Look at all that bunching at the back of the driver’s seat.
American cars are rubbish. They were and they will always be.
It was meant to be like that! The seats were hand made and the fabric was extremely expensive Italian pure new wool from the exclusive Ermengildo Zegna design house. However, I doubt if any of you have ever heard of him, let alone been allowed into one of his shops!
of course i know of Zegna. I have some shirts and jackets by Zegna…..they’re OK—-nothing extraordinary IMO.
I had one of these cars and the interior was a lovely place to sit. Peter is right, the seats were made of really top end wool cloth and looked so much cooler than the nasty nylon velour seats of contemporary cars. I don’t recall my seat fabric looking as bunched as this so I guess this brochure was from a pre-production car. And if the fabric was bunched up, it certainly didn’t look wrong at the time as the interior had this really cutting edge stylistic feel to it. I loved the car and ran it until it was 13 years old. At which time, I traded it in for another Lancia
