1991 Lancia Delta HF Integrale stretched limousine – Click above for image gallery

With the popularity of the Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evo, it'd be easy to dismiss the likes of the Lancia Delta HF Integrale as a relic of the past. But make no mistake about it: The roadgoing version of this Italian rally machine is as exotic and desirable as any supercar to come from the same country. All the more reason, then, to be appalled at this unfortunate conversion job.

It appears that some garage in Italy has taken an Integrale (possibly two, according to reports), chopped it up and stretched it into a limousine. If you're thinking that an all-wheel drive hot hatch is the worst possible candidate for limo-ification, we're with you. Whether the conversion job retains the all-wheel drive system remains a big question mark, however, with power coming from either the Integrale's eight-valve 2.0-liter turbo four or the Evo's 16-valve version.

Oh, and the best part? It's for sale, courtesy of Italian classifieds site Autoscout24, for the princely sum of €99,000 (or about $136,000 by current exchange rates). Have a look in the gallery below, just don't expect to see one of these popping up at the local Chrysler dealership with a Pentastar on the nose.

      Somehow this reminds me of Jeremy's Fiat Panda Limo.

        Isn't the lancia made by a division of Fiat?

      Bruno Tulliani -- "Mon Dieu, pourquoi"??? This is about a Lancia, not a Renault. You mean, "Dio mio, por che?" -- And why the hell are they showing a nineteen year old model with this story?

      This is worse than the Mc Italy.

      It looks like a clown car for the whole circus.

      A limousine with a 122 cubic inch engine??? I don't care if it is turbo charged, that's still a lawnmower engine, not a luxury limousine engine.

      It's like some bad dream where the two loons from Discovery HD Theater's show Chop Shop meets the crew from Street Customs and this is the rolling abortion that germinates from their loins.

      Ruined a fine, increasingly rare car.

      Some people have more money than sense.

      Jeez, of all the car to stretch... someone has more money than sense. On another note, I saw a mint red Integrale parked outside a club in downtown Portland, OR. How it was snuck through customs I'll never know.

      It's not that bad. As long as it gets me to where I want to go, I like it.

      It looks like a stretched Phymouth horizon to me.

      This is pure blasphemy.....sacrilegious!!! How can you disgrace a racing legend like this HF. Non che rispetto per quest' automobile. I'm at a loss for words....I have seen this car in Italy twice and it rocked my world both times!! What a waste....Mon Dieu, pourquoi?
