Jay Kay’s Lancia Delta Integrale Could Be Yours – For A Hefty Sum

Jamiroquai’s front man, Jay Kay, is known in the automotive world for being well versed into cars and an avid collector.

His personal collection includes a number of vehicles; as far as Italian icons go, apart from the Kermit Green Ferrari LaFerrari, there’s also one from a different era: a Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II.

Supplied new to Italy in 1994, the Integrale was then imported to the United Kingdom some 6 years later, and it ended up in the possession of the British singer and songwriter in 2009.

Jay Kay took great care of it ever since, and it was earlier this year when he had it sent to some Lancia specialists to have its engine rebuilt, after a misfire. Work include a block rebore, new forged pistons and bearings, polished crankshaft bearing journals, and cylinder head skimming.

Despite investing more than £8,000 ($10,300) into the engine rebuild, Jay Kay is now looking to depart with his Delta Integrale. In charge of finding it a new home is SilverstoneAuctions, which listed it at the auction that takes place on July 29-30, estimating that it will change hands for £30,000-£35,000 ($38,612-$45,048), plus a buyer’s premium of 15 percent.
