Lancia 037 Evo Safari Rally 1984, driven by M. Alen/ I. Kivimaki, 1:43 scale, by Altaya.
A Lancia Rally 037.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
H.F. Grifone team's 037 at the Race Retro 2008.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.
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.
