Lancia Lancia ECV Prototype

The Lancia ECV was a prototype Group S rally car developed by the Italian manufacturer Lancia to replace the Lancia Delta S4 in World Rally Championship competition for the 1987 season. However, Group S and Group B cars were banned from competition by the FIA in late 1986 due to safety concerns and the ECV never raced. Lancia instead developed the Group A Lancia Delta.

The car originally produced over 600 horsepower (447 kW) from a 1759 cc twin-turbocharged engine. However, Group S rules would have artificially limited the car's output to 300 hp (224 kW) to limit speeds.

The car made extensive use of the composite materials Kevlar and carbon fibre to save weight and add strength. Overall the car weighed 930 kg.

The car featured a new Martini colour-scheme, replacing the S4's white bodywork with red-based scheme. Lancia used the new scheme on its competition cars in 1987.
