The Hyena concept:

In The early 1990’s, Lusso Service Holland decided to recreate the enthusiasm that surrounded cars built at the peak of Zagato’s collaboration with Lancia in the 1960’s. The brief was simple, design a classic two-door coupe incorporating Zagato’s much-loved styling ques, such as the ‘double-bubble’ roof. The design was completed by Marco Pedracini of the Zagato Style Centre and was unveiled at the 1992 Brussels motor show.

The Hyena was built on the Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evo 1, and was designed to be a limited-run production coupe paying tribute to the Delta and its phenomenal competition success. Initially there were plans to build around 500 examples, but this was quickly adjusted to 75, with only 25 Hyena’s actually completed due to unexpectedly high production costs.

The manufacturing process of this car was incredibly expensive. Lusso Service purchased 25 Delta’s and shipped them to Holland where the body and interiors were removed. Next, the cars were sent to Zagato in Milan, Italy to be fitted with new aluminium coupe bodies before returning to Holland where Lusso Service completed the assembly. This manufacturing process led to a hefty price of $75,000!

Once complete, the Hyena weighed 1,150 kgs, roughly 15% lighter than the production Delta Integrale, whilst retaining it’s 1,995 cc engine, five-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drive system, resulting in a 0-60 mph time of 5.4 seconds!

 

This Lancia Hyena:

The first owner of this Hyena was an English banker who was searching for a fun, exciting and comfortable car to commute between his UK and Italian homes. Before delivery, the owner had a few improvements in mind, including increasing the power to 300 bhp by means of a new gas-flowed cylinder head, ‘fast road’ camshafts and tubular exhaust manifold, changes that made for a wider power band whilst enhancing driving characteristics. These improvements also increased to power-to-weight ratio to be greater than a new Porsche 911 Carrera S. With this increase in performance, it was also decided that cross-drilled and grooved brakes would be fitted, along with a 90-litre competition fuel cell giving a 450-mile range. The interior also benefitted from an upgraded stereo system, whilst also retaining the Delta rear seat option.

Having been bought by its second owner in October 2004, this Hyena was sent to Mavcorse Preparazione Sportive in Milan, Italy, to be repainted in the fabulous dual-layer black we see today. During the repainting, the interior was removed and Teknofibra insulating material was installed to improve noise cancelling in the cabin, with the same material also being fitted to sections of the engine bay to manage both heat and noise. This Hyena was later purchased by its current owner in 2012, before being registered in France.

With uprated camshafts, valve springs, adjustable camshaft pulleys, a Garrett GT28 Turbocharger, silicone water and oil hoses, an enlarged intercooler, carbon air intake, adjustable twin-piston pop off valve, real-time engine mapping and boost gauge, Koni Yellow sports dampers and a dished OMP steering wheel, this car is unique and offers the driver the ultimate Hyena experience.
