Symbol of sportiness
HF – this reminds us of Lancia rally winners, who have already become myth. It is the abbreviation for “High Fidelity” and has since the foundation in 1960 been used for the Lancia Hi.Fi.-Club, whose members are notably loyal Lancia customers.
The little galloping elephant is even older. This symbol was chosen as talisman of Gianni Lancia, former managing director, for the first sport activities in the early 1950s.
The sign originates from the Oriental/Indian mythology, where it was known as a symbol of success and as talisman. Originally, the elephant was portrayed in blue – later on it was used in deep red.
HF and elephant are thus the two symbols that have accompanied the history, development and successes of all sporty Lancia’s.
Motorsport activities have ever been a companion of the noble brand Lancia. Beside numerous victories with legendary models like Stratos, 037, but also Delta S4, Lancia Delta is the most successful model till these days.
