Mr Bean is selling his gorgeous Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II

The cost-of-living crisis gets to the best of us as Rowan Atkinson puts this prized Lancia up for auction

Actor and car enthusiast Rowan Atkinson has put his Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II up for auction. Worth up to an estimated £75,000 in the currently buoyant market for classic cars, this fine 80s family runaround has clocked less than 90,000 km (51,000 miles).

The Lancia Delta Integrale has a colourful history in rallying circles. The five-door hatchback rose to fame in its domination of the World Rally Championships in the late 1980s. This particular example is a Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione II. Such Evo models would prove the final homologation cars for the Martini-sponsored racing team.

Atkinson’s reasonably deep pockets have kept this treasure in extremely good nick - safe to say, it drives. First registered in June 1993, this Evo II sports a 2.0-litre, 16-value turbo engine, producing a spritely 215bhp. Imported from Japan in 2011, the Lord Blue finish is a rare colour choice with a typically Japanese-inspired nametag.

Unsurprisingly, the HF Integrale Evo II is considered the Lancia to have. This one is complete with an MOT and FSH for those in the market. It goes on sale at the Race Retro Show on 25th February 2023 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire as part of the larger showcase from Silverstone Auctions.
