foto of the day. Hyena.

After checking out photos of the BMW Zagato Coupe concept yesterday, I found myself trying to think of the last Zagato-bodied car that i actually really liked.  Immediately the first car that really came to mind was the limited production Lancia Hyena.  

It’s important to consider that this was not only a fantastic looking car, but carried the performance to embarass a Lancia Delta Integrale.  Bold words then…..so why is that true?  The Hyena is based off the Delta Integrale, shares the same 250hp engine, but weighed 450+ pounds less (it weighed just 2550 pounds)!   So stunning to look at, and with a 0-60 time in the low 5 seconds; stunning to drive!

Completely underrated too….i would love to have one of these in my garage.  They were supposed to make more than 100 cars—however production stopped after 26 cars.  Stay tuned for a more in depth feature to come in the following weeks—-on a car i’m becoming more and more fascinated with.

Top Gear & Lancia.

This past sunday night, the latest episode of TOP GEAR featured Lancia as the company who has made the most number of ‘great’ cars.  It was a fantastic episode, and a MUST watch for any italian car fan and especially for anyone into Lancias.

Here are the videos from that show, in 2 parts:
