We’re not going to lie, we can’t help but love when classic cars are given a contemporary lease of life here at Coolector HQ but, it’s safe to say, we’ve never seen one with quite so much retro awesomeness as this stunning Automobili Amos Lancia Delta Futurista which, quite frankly, might just be our dream car. This spectacular steed has just been unveiled at Grand Basel Motor Show and, as you might expect, comes with a mighty hefty price tag of some $350,000.
The Automobili Amos Lancia Delta Futurista is a thoroughly majestic looking machine and it is made all the more appealing in this iteration courtesy of the uber cool green colourway it has been kitted out in. The Lancia Delta Futurista has more than a faint hint of the remodelled Porsches by Singer to it but this is by no means a bad thing and we’re sure that there will be a lot of retro car mod enthusiasts out there utterly bewitched by the aesthetics of this magnificent beast.
Spectacular Old School Style
The brainchild of Eugenio “Genio” Amos, the Lancia Delta Futurista from Automobili Amos is a breathtaking, modernised offering that really showcases this luxury car lover’s dedication to creating out of this world rides. This restoration / modification project has rejuvenated the Lancia and seen the body widened with hand-beaten aluminium panels, alongside most of the front end now boasting a striking carbon fibre finish, with some carbon fibre panels patching up the rear end to boot.
It is possibly even more mesmerising when you head inside the Automobili Amos Lancia Delta Futurista because its interiors are some of the best in the business and take their design inspiration from the Group B Delta S4 Stradale and boasts not just a custom steering wheel but also some of the coolest Recaro seating imaginable. So for as the drivetrain is concerned, the original transmission has been reinforced, with the differential being rebuilt, and to finish things off, there is a new intake and water cooling system to help enhance the performance.
In addition to the steel roll cage frame of the Lancia Delta Futurista, it has also been reinforced in line with Group A prep that the original WRC dominators went through. Which means, in total, the car has shifted weight from its original spec, and now comes weighs in at just 1,250kg. As you’d expect, the cabin of this beautiful looking machine is fully upholstered but manages to maintain the classic rally cabin aesthetic.
It goes without saying that a motor vehicle as mesmerising as the Automobili Amos Lancia Delta Futurista doesn’t come cheap but the $350,000 price tag is enough to make even the wealthiest of eye water. But such is the visual superiority of this devilishly dapper machine that we’re in little doubt that there will be people queuing up around the block willing to pay it.
Stunning inside and out, the Automobili Amos Lancia Delta Futurista has got all the hallmarks of a classic vehicle that could go down in the annuls alongside some of the finest luxury car modifications out there. We love everything about it here at Coolector HQ and can’t wait to see how it looks out on the open road.
