Group B Lancia Delta S4´s first snow test in Lapland 1985 with Markku Alén
Footage of Martini Racing rally team testing their brand new 4WD Group B
weapon Lancia Delta S4 for first time on snow near Rovaniemi (Lapland
Finland) with rally legend Markku Alén behind the wheel. The test took
place two weeks after the 1985 Lombard RAC Rally where the S4 had made its
WRC debut - and took a 1-2 victory right away thanks to Henri Toivonen and
Alén. Despite the win in the debut event there was still a lot of work to
be done and tested in Lapland, since the handling and setup of the monster
car were far from complete.

It's really incredible to think how much this car is modified. In my
opinion you should search on the internet some pictures of the old street
legal Lancia Ypsilon 10 to understand how much this car is crazy.
It has been tuned by an italian racing team, called Vedovati Corse, and
it's driven by Simone Marchetti.

PURE ENGINE SOUND: Lancia Rally 037 Evo.2 Group B
This is a unique piece of video, part of "Pure Engine Sound Collection",
made by several clips of Beppe Volta's Lancia Rally 037 Evo.2 during
historic rally exhibitions. This movie, produced by Nickland.org, has been
edited by Nicolò Caneparo. The entire footage is property of Nickland.org,

terms of law.
The Lancia Rally 037 (also known as the Lancia Abarth #037) was a
mid-engine rally car built by Lancia in the early 1980s purely for the FIA
Group B World Rally Championship. Driven by Markku Alén, Attilio Bettega,
and Walter Röhrl, the car won Lancia the manufacturers' world championship
in the 1983 season.
In 1981 Lancia began designing the 037 to comply with the then new FIA
Group B regulations that allowed cars to race with relatively few
homologation models being built. As the project was number 037, this
eventually became the name by which the car was known. Abarth, now a part
of the Lancia-Fiat family, did most of the design work, even incorporating
styling cues from some of its famous race cars of the 1950s and 1960s such
as a double bubble roof line. Prior to its first participation in the 1982
World Rally Championship season, 200 road-going models were built to comply
with Group B regulations.
The car made its competition debut at the 1982 Rally Costa Smeralda in
Italy, where two cars were entered but both retired due to gearbox issues.
The 1982 season was plagued with retirements for the 037, but the new car
did manage to achieve several wins including its first win at the Pace
Rally in the UK. The 1983 season was considerably more successful for the
037: Lancia took the 1983 World Rally Championship Constructors' title with
Germany's Walter Röhrl and Finland's Markku Alen its principal drivers,
despite serious competition from the 4WD Audi Quattro. Both drivers,
however, missed the final round of the series, despite Röhrl maintaining a
mathematical chance of the drivers' title: such honours instead went to
Audi's veteran Finn, Hannu Mikkola.
For the 1984 Constructors' title defence, Lancia introduced an Evolution 2
version of the 037 with improved engine power, but this was not enough to
stem the tide of 4WD competition, losing to Audi in both 1984
Championships, and again to the 4WD Peugeot 205 T16 in its final works
season in 1985. Indeed, Alen collected the final 037 win, and the sole one
for the E2 model, on the 1984 Tour De Corse, before it was finally
pensioned off in the Martini sponsored Lancia factory rally car line-up in
favour of its successor, the uniquely supercharged and turbocharged 4WD Delta S4, for the season-ending
RAC Rally in Great Britain. Driver Attilio Bettega died in a 037 crash in
The Lancia 037 was a silhouette racer; while it was loosely based on the
Lancia Montecarlo (also known as Scorpion in the US and Canadian markets)
road car, they shared only the center section with all body panels and
mechanical parts being significantly different. Steel subframes were used
fore and aft of the production car center section, while most of the body
panels were made from Kevlar.
The mid-engined layout of the Montecarlo was retained, but the engine was
turned 90 degrees from a transverse position to a longitudinal position in
order to decrease the vehicles polar moment and improve handling.
An independent double wishbone suspension was used on both the front and
rear axles, with dual shock absorbers in the rear in order to cope with the
stresses of high speed off road driving. The 037 is notable as it retained
the rear-wheel drive layout that was nearly universal for rally cars of the
pre-Group B period; nearly all subsequent successful rally cars used
four-wheel drive, making the 037 the last of its kind.
Unlike its predecessor, the V6-powered Lancia Stratos, the first 037s had a
2.0 liter 4-cylinder supercharged engine. Based on the long stroke twin cam
which powered earlier Fiat Abarth 131 rally cars, the four valve head was
carried over from the 131 Abarth but the original two carburetors were
replaced by a single large Weber carburetor in early models and later with
fuel injection. It features a ZF transaxle.
Lancia also chose a Supercharger over a
turbocharger to eliminate turbo lag and improve throttle response. Initially
power was quoted at 265 hp (198 kW) but with the introduction of the
Evolution 1 model power jumped to 300 with the help of water injection. The
final Evolution 2 model produced 325 hp (242 kW) thanks to a displacement
increase to 2,111 cc.
