Recently the legendary Lancia Stratos had new life breathed into it in the form of a modern day incarnation. Originally a concept but brought to life by a privateer the new Stratos maintains the very same ethos as its forefather. Ferrari power, short wheelbase and performance to match any other supercar is all standard; and now the popularity of this one-off has earned it a limited production run.
The car is based upon a Ferrari F430 but has been modified to the point where it simply uses the Italian supercar as a donor for parts. The 4.3 litre V8 packed with 540 BHP will get this blast from the past from 0-62MPH in just 3.3 seconds. Many motoring journals have credited the little car on just how well it handles with even Ferrari’s Chairman expressing his admiration. More than 40 customers have ben confirmed as interested in purchasing an example and so the cars production begins. The only real snag is that it will cost them just shy of £500,000.
