This car comes with complete history from new and service history, and is in original condition without any modifications. The car first, and the long-time owner, was the hairdresser of the rally legend Walter Rhrl, who advised him to buy this model, after becoming world champion with the Ascona 400 in 1982. and there is still a decal on the car from when the owner's hair salon won a award, which just goes to show how this car is. After the production of the world's first dedicated rally car, the Lancia Stratos, there were many manufacturers looking for successes in order to promote their production vehicles. The Group B rally regulations required 400 versions of the Manta 400. The Manta 400 was a 2420cc (147.7cb) rear-wheel drive contender at a time when Development was getting a bit out of hand - the 4x4s were emerging as viable rallying options and all the big players were putting money into some powerful machines. This was the time of the Audi Quattro, Peugeot 205 T16, Lancia Delta S4, Ford RS200 and the Metro 6R4.Group B rallying finally came to an end due to high speed, high power and sometimes fatal accidents rapid pace of development. It was the 1986 Tour the Corse rally where a Lancia S4 crashed with no witnesses and no survivors that prompted the Group S cars. The car here is a very weird example of one or only 59 wide bodied Manta 400 built.First registered on 12/10/1984 this is one of the very few vehicles with the 5 speed manual transmission 4 speed box only.
