Lancia Hyena 1994 – SPRZEDANA

Lancia Hyena to bardzo rzadki twór Marco Pedracini’ego z Carrozzeria Zagato, który na bazie Delty HF Integrale zaprojektował lekkie, aerodynamiczne, dwudrzwiowe coupé. Kiedy przyjrzymy się bryle samochodu z profilu, odkryjemy skąd pochodzi jego nazwa. Nad Hyeną pojawiły się czarne chmury, kiedy Fiat zarządzający Lancią wstrzymał realizację projektu. Marco wraz ze wspólnikiem Paul’em V J Koot’em nie mieli wyjścia, zdecydowali się zakupić gotowe Lancie, by pozyskać z nich potrzebne elementy i zacząć produkcję na własną rękę. Lancia Hyena debiutowała na Brussels Motor Show w 1992 roku, wpisując się w kanon projektów Zagato, takich jak Alfa Romeo SZ i Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato. Podwozie i napęd na cztery koła Hyeny były niemal identyczny, co w 16-zaworowej Delcie HF Integrale. Ręcznie wykonane z aluminium nadwozie wykończono wewnątrz włóknem węglowym, co zaowocowało zmniejszeniem ciężaru o prawie 200 kg w stosunku do Integrale. Moc silnika została zwiększona do 250 KM, co dało zauważalnie lepszy stosunek mocy do masy – przyspieszenie 0-100 km/h to tylko 5,4 sekundy. Niestety wysokie koszty produkcji skutkowały ceną na poziomie ówczesnego Porsche 911 Carrera, co zaowocowało produkcją jedynie 24 sztuk. Egzemplarz o numerze 15, wystawiony do licytacji, uważany jest za jedyny w kolorze Verde Zagato, a jego przebieg to 8,000 km. Z wyposażenia samochodu na uwagę zasługuje oryginalne, czarne, skórzane wnętrze, fotele Recaro z wytłoczonym logo “Hyena”, klimatyzacja, wspomaganie kierownicy i ABS. To małe zrywne coupe wycenione zostało na 150 – 200 tys. euro, czyli ok. 660 – 870 tys. złotych. Wylicytowana za 156 800 euro.

Lancia dominated international rallying from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s, winning World and European titles with the Fulvia, Stratos, Rally 037, and Delta Integrale. Although based on a humble five-door family hatchback, the turbo-charged Delta Integrale was a formidable high-performance road car, with 200bhp on tap and top speed to 220km/h (137mph). One man who saw that the design had further potential was Carrozzeria Zagato’s Marco Pedracini, who drew up a lightweight, aerodynamic, two-door coupé on the Delta Integrale platform: the Hyena.

A limited series of cars was planned, but when Lancia’s owners FIAT refused to supply bare chassis, Zagato had no choice but to privately purchase fully finished Delta Integrales from Lancia dealers and modify them, greatly increasing production costs. Zagato’s collaborator in this project was Paul V J Koot, proprietor of Netherlands-based British and Italian sports car specialists, Lusso Service. Lusso Service sourced donor cars in the Netherlands, which were then shipped to Italy for re-bodying and final assembly. The first Hyena prototype was unveiled at the Brussels Motor Show in 1992, its looks recalling previous classic Zagato designs such as the Alfa Romeo SZs and Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato.

The Hyena’s chassis and four-wheel-drive mechanicals were almost identical to those of the 16-valve Delta Integrale. The body was hand made in aluminium while carbon fibre was used extensively inside the car – the dashboard, centre console, and door panels being made of this lightweight composite material. The result was a reduction in weight of almost 200kg when compared to the stock Delta Integrale. Engine power was boosted to around 250bhp, further enhancing the power-to-weight ratio; the result was a 0-100km/h time of only 5.4 seconds. The Hyena was very expensive, costing as much as a Porsche 911 Carrera, and production ceased in 1996 after only 24 of these ultra-exclusive coupés had been made.

Believed the only example finished in Verde Zagato (one of six available colours), Hyena number ’15’ was delivered new to Germany and has covered approximately 8,000 kilometres from new. Noteworthy features include the original black leather interior, original Recaro seats with embossed ‘Hyena’ logo, air conditioning, power steering, and ABS.

Little used and very well looked after, the car comes with substantial service history from specialists in Germany; the most recent service invoice dates from October 2015, when all of the critical belts were changed (at 6,926km) by Moszek, Klassik Motor in Düsseldorf. The tyres, likewise, are new.

A most attractive small coupé, with potent performance and capable of touring in comfort, this stunning and ultra-rare Zagato-bodied Lancia is offered with German registration documents and an original brochure.
