Almost a month ago, a Silverstone Auctions race retro auction sold a green Lancia Hyena By Zagato, which was added to the collection of Dimitrios Spyropoulos, founder of London-based Veloce Classic and Sports Cars, after paying £ 168,750 (£ 168,750). 201.550).
Today we see another Hyena being sold, the 24th of just 24 that went into production. Still, it is the only car painted in this blue (Madras Blue) color, and since 1993, when Paul Koot bought the new one, this car had only two owners in total, covering a total of 14,000 km.
The idea behind the creation of Hyena was that of Dutchman Paul Koot, who in 1990 wanted to rebuild his Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. He went to Milan and at a dinner with Andrea Zagato the idea of creating a fast little car dropped. The idea began to flesh out thanks to Nani Tedeschini's designs, and an original was presented at the Brussels exhibition in January 1992.
People loved it, but Fiat didn't want to get involved in it at all. So Zagato and Koot founded Lusso Service, and in 1992 the final production version was released. There were many pre-orders for the Lancia Hyena which is based on the floor and mechanical parts of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V EVO.
So it wears the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder 300 hp engine combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox. It weighed 1,148 kg, 190 less than the HF Integrale EVO2 due to extensive carbon use, both at home and abroad.
Initial planning was talking about 92 cars but eventually because it had a starting price of $ 110,000, only 24 cars were built. The car will go on the hammer by RM Sotheby's at its auction in Essen, Germany on June 24-27, and although it does not indicate an estimated sale price it is estimated to range from € 220,000 to € 250,000.
