Rate Homologation Lancia Hyena Zagato To Be Auctioned At Race Retro Sale
Silverstone Auctions Race Retro sale is to offer some very rare lots with a stunning 1992 Lancia Hyena Zagato taking centre stage.
A popular sale in the heart of Warwickshire and held at Stoneleigh Park, the Race Retro sale features a promising selection of high-quality classic and competition cars for prospective buyers.
Already consigned is a very rare and intriguing car, the 1992 Lancia Hyena Zagato. Famed for their versions of some of the finest cars available, Zagato was approached to create a Coupe version of the Lancia HF Integrale by a well-funded classic car collector and builder Paul V.J Koot.
The idea was to use the chassis, power train and engine from the Integrale HF Evoluzione 2 and Zagato to create the new Coupe body shell which would give birth to what was to be called the Hyena. Fiat, owners of Lancia at the time were not impressed and didn’t support this, so Koot went off and bought finished HF Integrales, stripped them and rebodied the chassis with his own newly styled body.
Completely hand-made from aluminium panels, the Hyena when finished weighed less than the Integrale and had further modifications and a boost of power from the power plant. 75 of these cars were planned but only 24 were ever built possibly due to the high price tag which was in the region of a Porsche 911 Carrera.
Harry Whale Silverstone Auctions Sales Manager commented: “These are some great classic cars on offer at our Race Retro sale. The Hyena is a very rare car and one that rarely becomes available. It comes with a great pedigree by using the Integrale underpinnings.”
