    Should have a plate on the dash or center dash saying it...... there is also a Porsche 924 Martini as well.

    Since I do not have 10 posts yet, I can not paste any links to this post.
    But will summarize (copied from other Lancia sites) some basic facts that are particular for Martini 5 or 6:

    Martini 5:
    First limited edition was being sold in 27th Jan 1992 with intention to celebrate the 5th consecutive Lancia world rally championship win with Delta Models. Only 400 models were built with white body colour, grills on the bonnet a black rear spoiler, white wheels, and Martini stripes to the sides and tailgate. High-backed HF-embossed Recaro seats were standard along with black alcantara trim, red stitching and red seat belts. Each car got a numbered plaque on the centre console and 'World Rally Champion' badge on the tailgate, Clarion autoradio, Gemini alarm, air conditioned. ABS and Michelin 205/50 ZR 15 tyres.


    Martini 6:
    When Lancia won its 6th World Rally Championship released this conmemorative version. White body , body-coloured rear spoiler and matching wheels. Martini stripes were applied to the sides and tailgate along with HF decals to the C-pillars, 'Martini Racing' text on the rear spoiler, 'World Rally Champion' text at the base of each front door and a large Lancia shield on the roof. Inside,air conditioned, ABS, Recaro blue alcantara seats, red seat belts, carbon fibre near the gear lever, Momo leather stearing wheel,racing gearshift, teflon bushes, autoradio Clarion & Michelin 205/50ZR15 tyres. 310 of these cars were produced between 1992-1993.

    So when determing whether it is a genuine Martini or just replica this descriptions can be useful... Position and type od Martini stripes and other stickers are also important. There are planty of pictures on the net of the real Martinis.
    Both Martini 5 and 6 are EVO I non catalytic cars with interior of EVO II

    Loking at the image of the Delta that was sold in auction the only thing that doesn't fit to Martini 5 description is the roof spoiler with Martini racing sticker - this was on martini 6. It has Recaro seats, red seat belts, Martini stripes, so it may be the real one...
    The owner could have replaced the roof spoiler since the original was smaller and black...

    We've had complaints about this post as it appears to be 100% spam advertising by the mentioned company in the guise of a recommendation.

    I think the reason is because it was your first post and you haven't posted anything more elsewhere such as a review of them with pics of your car etc...

    Are you really in the UK now and not a spam bot?
