PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Lancia Stratos Is Almost Here And We’ll See The Manual Version At Geneva

The Stratos of the 21st century is almost ready. We’ll get to see the first production models built by Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT) at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show that kicks off on March 7th. Now we know that MAT will also bring a manual version of the car to Switzerland. That model uses the engine and the rest of the running gear from the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Only 25 examples of it will be made.

The Lancia Stratos is a legend. As arguably the first purpose-built rally car, it cast a shade on all the other cars competing in top-line rallies in the early ’70s and went on to be competitive for almost a decade. The modern reinterpretation built by MAT is a slightly updated version of the 2010 New Stratos concept founded by German collector Michael Stoschek who gave his permission for the Stratos name to be used on these 25 new cars. Lancia, however, isn’t on board.

The Lancia Stratos was the first car to be constructed from the ground up with the sole purpose of going rallying. As legendary as it is fast, the Stratos still races in historical rally events, and this particular one won the 2017 European Historic Rally Championship with former endurance and GT racer Erik Comas behind the wheel.

Comas, a former Le Mans podium-finisher with Pescarolo, has owned four Stratoses over the years, but this one is the one he calls “The Rally Queen.” It was formerly owned by Lancia test driver Claudio Maglioli who worked on the development of the Stratos. Comas took it back to Biella, Italy, where the car was originally maintained to have it refreshed before he returned it to action in 2015. That year, he won the Italian Historic Rally Championship. No wonder he hails the handling characteristics as “perfect.”

PostHeaderIcon Lancia Stratos HF Stradale

Let’s do a little thought experiment. Say you’re looking to create one of the greatest road cars in existence. Where do you start? The answer should be obvious – racing, or, more specifically, a homologation special. These are machines birthed from the womb of competition, tuned ever so slightly to meet the rules of the road and sold to mere mortals like you and me. The Lancia Stratos HF Stradale is one such vehicle. Plucked from the sideways insanity of the WRC, the Stratos comes from a time before AWD, a time when simple, brutal machines vied for supremacy by dancing on the limits of adhesion offered by the rear wheels alone.

The “HF” in the name stands for “High Fidelity,” Lancia’s go-to designation when it comes to its high-performance models, while “Stradale” is Italian for road, indicating the car’s street worthiness. Powered by a Ferrari-sourced V-6 and stripped down to only the bare essentials, the Stratos is often credited with changing the world of rally as the first car designed specifically for competition in the sport. Throw in the fact Lancia made nearly 500 examples for the road, and what you’re left with is a truly fantastic car.

PostHeaderIcon Sound the Alarm! The “New” Stratos is Coming!

40 years after its production ended, the Lancia Stratos still warms the hearts of millions of people all over the world. It took a while, but finally — finally! — The Stratos is coming back. It’s not going to come from Lancia, but it’s still going to be the modern-day Stratos that we’ve all been waiting decades for. Even better, there are three versions that are being developed, including a road-going supercar, a GT racer, and Lord have mercy, a Safari rally-spec racer. This is the new Stratos, ladies, and gentlemen. You can start fainting now.

“Our attention needs to be directed to Manifattura Automobili Torini, the Italian coachbuilding firm that actually developed the New Stratos prototype all the way back in 2010”

If you’re back from your dizzy spell, we can proceed to know a little more about the new Stratos and who’s actually behind it. It’s not Lancia, that’s for sure. Instead, our attention needs to be directed to Manifattura Automobili Torini, the Italian coachbuilding firm that actually developed the New Stratos prototype all the way back in 2010. Some of you will remember that the car actually made it to the testing stage. Even former Ferrari chief Luca di Montezemolo took it out for a spin on one occasion. Ironically, it was Maranello that actually blocked plans to produce the Stratos in limited numbers because it didn’t want to have its 430s used as the basis of the model. Boo, Ferrari.

It’s unclear what changed between 2010 and 2018, but that’s not important now. What’s important is that Manifattura Automobili Torino, the same coachbuilder that created the New Stratos eight years ago, has partnered with Michael Stoschek, chairman of the Brose Group and the owner of the one-off 2010 Stratos, to build 25 units of the New Stratos. All 25 units will be homologated for global sales, with each model catered specifically to the customer’s whims.

“All 25 units will be homologated for global sales, with each model catered specifically to the customer’s whims.”

“I am delighted that other passionate car enthusiasts can experience how the successor of the most fascinating rally car from the Seventies still sets the bar for design and performance today,” Stoschek said in a statement.

Details on the new New Stratos are still scarce at the moment. We do know that its power is being dialed up to 550 horses, 50 more than the New Stratos. It’s not a big increase in ponies, but it’s an increase nonetheless. More details should arrive in the coming months as the project strengthens its legs. Until then, we can now stop dreaming for the return of the Stratos. It’s actually happening now.

Lancia Startos Stradale-0

From Dubai we have today for your viewing pleasure this amazing Lancia Stratos HF Stradale. This car belongs to Tomini Classics Dubai and the reason it looks almost brand-new is because the guys at Select Nano UAE have spent countless hours detailing it to perfection.

Now, some people may not like this rich, purply shade of blue for the Lancia Stratos HF Stradale as it sort of distort the car’s one-of-a-kind design and clashes a bit with the black plastic bits. They may prefer red, or green, or some other traditional Stratos color. That said, there is no denying this paint work adds to the sheer uniqueness of the car and goes really well with those gold wheels.

Designed by Bertone and built during the Italian brand’s heyday in the Seventies, Lancia Stratos HF Stradale is powered by a mid-mounted DOHC V6 engine developing 190 horsepower and making an awesome noise. These days a Stratos in average condition fetches around three to four hundred grand easy. A perfect and flawless example like this could fetch up to a million bucks. So yes, it qualifies as a dream car for most of us. Enjoy the pictures and feel free to daydream a little:
