Lancia Fulvia HF Coupé (1972)
Another one from my trip to the Nurburgring this past June. The heavy rain didn’t stop me from pulling out the camera and shooting this Fulvia like crazy. Sadly this is the only shot I got right, the other ones had too much… water. But there was too much pedigree on this Fulvia to miss it.
This Fulvia HF is probably my favorite Lancia, if we don’t count the Stratos (that’s out of this universe). It started out with a very simple premiss and a very simple engine, and over the years managed to achieve such greatness in competition.
The HF Squadra Corse had quite a decade of success thanks to the Fulvia, which only managed to get the title of International Rally Champions in 1972. By the time the little Fulvia had seen its engine evolve from a 1.2 to a grunty 1.6 liter capacity.
