lancia stratos reborn
October 5, 2010 arturo

for those of you who remember the original stratos, the mythic lancia rally car of the 70s and early 80s, you’ll love this. german billionaire michael stoschek, a stratos fanatic and all-around rally enthusiast, decided he wanted to bring sexy back. it started as a design project back in 2008 and eventually led back to bertone, the design studio that created the original back in the 70s.

the stratos is powered by a ferrari f430 engine and is based on the 430 scuderia chassis. its skin is carbon fiber, its brakes are ceramic and the new stratos has a weight-to-power ratio of just 5.5 lbs per horsepower. currently there is just one prototype, but there may be as many as 25 of these beauties when the design is finalized. in the meantime, check out this new teaser video and pics…
