Roman Abramovich’s ex-wife, Dasha Zhukova, and her husband Stavros Niarchos landed in St. Moritz, Switzerland, on Monday, before their star-filled wedding this weekend.
The 38-year-old Russian art collector and the 34-year-old billionaire, who was previously in a relationship with Paris Hilton, headed in a retro Lancia Delta HF Integrale, a coveted car collection item with an approximate value of £ 30,000 and £ 78,000.
Dasha and Stavros, who have known each other for more than a decade, but became a couple in 2018, traveled to the luxurious Alpine tourist town to begin preparations for their nuptials, after getting married at a ceremony of the French registry office in October.

WHAT IS THE LANCIA DELTA HF INTEGRALE EVOLUZIONE?
The Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione was first introduced in late 1991, when the famous Italian manufacturer announced its withdrawal from the factory meeting.
Despite its slight change of direction, the company continued to develop the HF Integrale, with the Martini Jolly Club winning the 1992 World Rally Championship with the famous car.
The Evo uses the same turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine from the previous Lancia Delta models, but the power increased from 177 PS (130 kW; 175 hp) to 210 PS (154 kW; 207 hp) with an improved exhaust .
The five-door hatchback was later updated in the Evoluzione II, and the factory did not convert it into a rally car.

A source told MailOnline: ‘The Niarchos family is highly respected and valued in St Moritz.
“ They could have celebrated the wedding in any fabulous place in the world, but they have chosen St Moritz because it is of great importance for them to support the city and the father of the groom is an honorary citizen.
“I hope this weekend’s cost will cost several million pounds and it will also be a big boost for the resort.”
When detailing the next event, the informant added: ‘St Moritz offers security and privacy to celebrities and guests. What happens in St Moritz stays in St Moritz.

‘Locals generally do not bother famous visitors. It is only a small city, so it is practically impossible to avoid bumping into them.
‘I hope the locals share a table with a few in the popular restaurants of Salsastrains and don’t notice them openly. It is almost a tacit code and one of the reasons why the fabulously rich choose here for such celebrations.
‘St Moritz is the most Swiss of all Swiss ski resorts. It serves a multitude of ancient money that includes generations of Niarchos, Guccis and royalty from all over Europe and the Middle East, as well as the whole of the horsey.
“It will be a fabulous weekend and the people who live here wish the happy couple all the best and welcome them.”
In the long term: the couple has known each other for more than a decade, but officially became a couple in 2018 (pictured in May 2018)
