Claudio Lombardi (Alessandria, 12 May 1942) is an Italian engineer. From 1975 to 1990 he was engine technical director at Lancia, part of the Fiat group. Thanks to his qualities he manages to stand out, to the point of being included in the racing department of the Turin company, where he goes to deal with the design of the cars that ran in the world rally championship; among other things, it is thanks to Lombardi that the Fiat group patents the Triflux racing engine in 1986. With the Lancia team he obtained numerous world titles, and followed the development of high-quality cars, above all the Lancia Delta S4. In this period he is subordinated to Cesare Fiorio, sports director of the official Lancia team. With the passage of Fiorio to the command of the Scuderia Ferrari of Formula 1, from 1989 to 1991 Lombardi took over for the first time as Lancia team manager.
