There are cars that are liked, cars that are loved, cars that are adored and then there are legends. The Lancia Stratos is one of these Legends that holds great admiration in every petrol heads heart. The fire breathing 70’s rally star captured the imagination of millions and ever since the cars disappearance from production it has been craved. The only problem whit a rendition in the form of a new Stratos is that Lancia now only appear to make mobility scooters and not the legends from days of old. But these spy shots tell a very different story.
Lancia did make a concept Stratos in 2005 but nothing came of it making us all very sad. These pictures however show an updated version of the car running around an Alfa Romeo test track in Italy. With Fiat owning both Alfa and Lancia it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine that this living dream is making a comeback! Our best guess is that this car, much like its Alfa Romeo 8C sibling, will be a limited production run for a company that needs to regain some respect for the once loved badge.
Fiat also own Ferrari and with that in mind we could be seeing the return of one of the most breath taking cars ever created.
