The Lancia Delta S4 is a Group B Rally car.  It was competitive in the World Rally Championships in 1985 and 1986.   This was a very exciting class of cars to watch.  When Group B was disbanded these cars were banned from competition completely by the FIA.   The evolution was this car was the famous Lancia 037.

Between October 1985 and 1986 Lancia produced 200 examples of the road going version.  It had a sticker price 5 imes more expensive than the next model down , the HF Turbo.

From Wikipedia:

The Stradale’s chassis was a space frame, similarly to the racing cars, built out of CrMo steel tubes andaluminium alloy for the crash structures; it was covered by epoxy and fiberglass body panels. Like the rally car these cars mounted in a midships position a 1.8-litre engine, equipped with WeberMarelli IAW integrated electronic ignition and fuel injection, a supercharger, a turbocharger and two intercoolers. In road tune the 1.8 produced 250 PS (184 kW; 247 hp)[6] at 6750 rpm and 291 N·m (215 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm.[4] The “Stradale” kept a three differential four-wheel-drive system; the centre differential sent 30% of the engine torque to the front open differential, and 70% to the rear limited slip one.

Lancia claimed the car could reach top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph) and accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in six seconds. In contrast to its bare bones racing sisters, the S4 Stradale featured anAlcantara-upholstered interior, sound deadening, a suede steering wheel, and was equipped with power steering, trip computer and air conditioning.

Between October 1985 and 1986 Lancia built 200 examples of a road-going version of the Delta S4, officially named Lancia Delta S4 but widely known as “Stradale”, for the purpose of homologation in Group B world rally championship of the infamous S4 Rallye or “Corse” car.

Today less than 100 Lancia Delta S4 “Stradale” remain in private collections.

In Italy during those years, the car was priced at about 100 million Lire:[ five times the price of the most expensive Delta of the time, the HF Turbo.
The Stradale’s chassis was a space frame, similarly to the racing cars, built out of CrMo steel tubes and aluminium alloy for the crash structures; it was covered by epoxy and fiberglass body panels. Like the rally car these cars mounted in a midships position a 1.8-litre engine, equipped with Weber-Marelli IAW integrated electronic ignition and fuel injection, a supercharger, and turbocharger and two inter-coolers, thus calling it “Twin Charged”. In road tune the 1.8 produced 250 PS (184 kW; 247 hp) at 6750 rpm and 291 N·m (215 lb·ft) at 4500 rpm (the rally car had over 600 hp). The “Stradale” kept a three differential four-wheel-drive system; the center differential sent 30% of the engine torque to the front open differential, and 70% to the rear limited slip one.

Lancia claimed the car could reach top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph) and accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds. In contrast to its bare bones racing sisters, the S4 Stradale featured an Alcantara-upholstered interior, sound deadening, a suede steering wheel, and was equipped with power steering, trip computer and air conditioning.
