It's pretty heavily modded, and puts out over 700hp and 700lb/ft (naturally aspirated.)

The Lancair aircraft is a beauty as well, is it yours? Very cool.

Very cool! And yes, that is insanely modified.

 

I am curious about that sub enclosure....Did you manage to build that into the existing center console somehow (I don't know what the stock console looks like), or is that entire thing a custom fiberglass enclosure?

No, the plane belonged to a very good friend of mine.

The entire center panel is a custom piece. It looks a lot like the stock piece, but it isn't. The dash with the tire pressure monitor is also custom.


I've been a Mopar fan for a long time. My first car: (age 17)

My business partner just traded in his 1 series for a 335is.

Interior aside, I love this car.

As a daily driver, I'd be tempted to take this over an M3.

Nice Mopar. Used to have a 73 'Cuda.

Also, I would lease vs. buy as MB is putting out some heavily subsidized residuals and a ton of dealer dollars to knock MSRP down. He also mentioned he was considering an SUV...and last I checked, the GL is indeed an SUV.
Given all that there is no comparison between the two vehicles in a head to head. Completely apples to oranges. However, if you want a luxury SUV, I think the GL is a fine choice. I know I've been happy with both of mine but obviously YMMV.

I have a 2008 GL and absolutely love it. I'm really looking forward to the current ('13) model; most likely we'll buy next year and let someone else take some of the depreciation. The '63 would be insane but I really can't justify the price over the 550. I'm hoping to find one with the Designo interior and I'll be a happy camper nod[1].gif

A friend had a ml63, ended up trading it in after a few years for a diesel..

What a machine!!!. I'm surprised nobody listed it as one of the cars in their dream garage. Definitely want - an EVO. I just thought this beauty needs to be shown to the world more often.

My neighbor has one of those in mint condition and it sounds evil, not sure if it's an Evo or what. I just know that it's a Delta Integrale, might have OZ or Sparco rims on it. He has one of those cool concrete modern Japanese mini-homes and had a small one-car garage and one day the garage door was changed to wooden French doors, and his wife opened some designer fruit juice stand in there and he had to move the car to a rental garage next to me. I don't know if he still has the car or what, because the same spaces he used now have a mint 930 turbo and that NSX-R i posted awhile back.

Delta Integrale's scream "Hey I have car taste!". Can't be a bad thing I guess.

Also I know everyone loves combi muscle cars so

I like your my neighbor has .... posts.


Saw a Delta Integrale a couple years ago in full rally trim parked on the street in Italy.

Just like this, it just had rally lights as well.

haha. Yeah I've seen them in Martini livery as well, I think it was an actual option from the factory. Those Evoluzione I and II cars are still rather expensive in Japan from what I'm seeing on the used car ads. I can't imagine the kind of constant repair work it takes to keep one of those up to spec in order to keep it registered here, I'd seriously bet on a Lamborghini before a Lancia from the 90's.

Part of me reckons that if its lasted this long then they must have repaired-out the trouble. Survival of the fittest means that eventually only the very best examples remain.

Have you seen the wheeler dealer ep. with the delta in it?

did Lancia ever sort out that whole 'eventually the doors and floorboards will rust off' problem?
