How a bout some specs on this lancia? Motor size? Power? Torque? AWD? Year? Can I bring one to the states?

I want a 911 Rs, like a 72.

Sniady,

Why not buy this one:

ebay

(These were considered the 'dogs bollocks' of public available rally cars in the late 80s/ early 90s.)

Back to your question:
I would love a Ferrari / Fiat Dino.

Well, if it has to be Italian and have 4 wheels, I'll take 2 Ducati 996s. Otherwise, a 3.0 CSL would do.

For me, it would be a Ferrari 246GT 'Dino', in Rosso Ferrari (Red) with a Black interior.

I at one time was looking for a Fiat 850 Spyder in good shape. It certainly wasn't for reliability, for which it wasn't well known, or for speed, as many motorcycles had a bigger engine. (Q: Is it bigger than a bread box? A: No.) I simply liked the styling which, if my memory serves me correctly (tm Iron Chef) was by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Perhaps in the long run I'm better off admiring them from afar.

the lancia posted above the last in the line of the model called Lancia Delta Hf Evoluzione, which is based on the rally car that won the championship 5 years in a row

it has a 16 valve 2.0 litre turbo four cylinder engine producing 215 horspower, making it accelarate from 0-60 in an amazing 5.6 seconds, top speed is around 225 km/h

this is referred to as one the best road cars ever and is the real ancestor of the current japanese hyper rally sedans such as the impreza wrx and mitsubishi lancer evo

Current: 89' Milano Gold(sold)
Next: 164 S

For me it would be a Ferrari 330 GTC.

4 liter V12 and Pininfarina styling that looks similar to the Alfa Bertone coupe.

A Fiat Dino, preferably a spider (the most beutiful convertable in the world). but more realistically I was actually gonna buy a 1967 Fiat Dino Coupe in better condition than my alfa for about $2000 that needed an engine rebuild... but I ended up buying my 1973 Alfa GTV because I heard of the reliability problems with the Fiat Dinos (especially the 1st series)... plus my fuel injected alfa gets better gas mileage and probably handles better...

BTW that lancia is sooooooo ugly, it looks like it came straight out of a bad 80s movie (kind of looks like a Jetta with an ugly body kit)..
