This Ex Yves Loubet 16V Integrale that was used on the 1990 Tour De Corse but retired on the 17th stage after transmission issues. After it's only appearance with the Factory team the car was used by Giacomo Ogliari on the 1992 Rallye dell'Isola d'Elba with a respectful 4th place overall.

Lancia Delta Integrale Evo Ex Jolly Club Sainz TO 73022T - Sold for €336,000
Built for the 1993 season with the Jolly Club Team and subsequently used by Carlos Sainz at Monte Carlo and in Australia. 1993 proved to be a tough year for Sainz with poor results all year and a highest place finish of 2nd on the Acropolis. It seemed Sainz did not get on with TO 73022T either as he finished 14th at Monte Carlo and at Australia he rolled out on the 3rd stage. Today the car is currently in tarmac specification and its Jolly Club Repsol livery. The car was auctioned with a spares package on Saturday 26th November with some strong bids coming in but the hammer dropped at a whopping €336,000! We are glad to hear that the car will be staying in Italy.
