The Lancia Hyena was a limited-production coupe based on the WRC winning Lancia Delta Integrale. The design was brought to Lancia management by Zagato, who envisioned a limited production run of 500 cars. Lancia, however, declined, so Zagato had to buy the complete Integrale in order to build their coupe.

The completed coupe could race from zero-to-sixty mph in just five seconds and weighed a mere 1148 kgs.

This example was purchased by the current caretaker in 2004. The car was given a restoration and given several performance upgrades. It was given dual-layer black finish and the interior was completely removed before Teknofibra insulating material was installed. This material was also fitted into the engine compartment to manage heat and noise transfer.

This car is powered by a four-cylinder engine fitted with a Garrett turbocharger and offered 300 horsepower. It had five-speed manual transmission and four-wheel disc brakes. The car has modified camshafts, modified valve springs, adjustable camshaft pulleys and a Garrett GT28 turbocharger. Silicone water and oil lines have been fitted, along with a larger intercooler, carbon air intake, an adjustable twin piston pop off valve and a 10-bar pressure regulator. The body features aluminum bodywork and the interior has extensive carbon fibre.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale by RM Auctions at their Monaco sale. It had a pre-auction estimated sale price of €100.000-€140.000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of €89.600 inclusive of buyer's premium.

The Lancia Hyena was designed and built by the Italian coachbuilding firm, Zagao. This series was the result of a Dutch Lancia dealer named Paul Koot, who tried to convince Lancia to create a limited-production coupe that was based on the Delta Integrale. This was a tribute to the Delta Integrale and its racing accomplishments on the rally circuit. The Hyena was introduced in 1986 and given a four-cylinder, two-liter, turbocharged engine that had eight-valves and 185 horsepower. A sixteen valve unit pushed the horsepower even higher, to 200. The car was given an aggressive stance with flared fenders and a proper suspension.

Reducing the overall weight of the vehicle brought it to 2500 pounds, a 15% decrease in comparison to the production EVO. Zero-to-sixty took only five seconds. Originally, Zagato and Koot tried to convince Lancia to allow for 500 examples to be produced. Lancia/Fiat declined. The duo tried another approach to get their idea into production - they requested that Fiat sell them Integrale chassis and components so they could build the machine themselves. Fiat again refused. So Koot and Zagato went ahead with production anyways, managing to create 26 examples.

The way they went about making these cars would probably was not the most efficient, but it worked. They purchased Integrale sedans and shipped them to Holland. The interior and bodies were removed. They were then sent to Italy where the Zagato company outfitted the chassis with new aluminum coupe bodies. The chassis, mechanical components, and body were then resent back to Holland where they were assembled. This made for a very hefty price tag, a staggering $75,000.
