  • New Stratos

    First unveiled in 2010, the New Stratos brought one of the most iconic rally car designs into the modern era. The project was the dream of Michael Stoschek, a German billionaire with a love of rally cars of the original Lancia Statos' era. He commissioned Pininfarina to build the modern car, which the Italian design house did using the shortened underpinnings of a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. With Stoschek's permission, Pininfarina was set to build additional examples but Ferrari blocked the project from happening. Now, nine years on, there's a company happy to defy the Prancing Horse.

    New Stratos Production blocked by Ferrari--or not?

    Not just reviving the legend of the rally-bred, off-the-walls Lancia Stratos, the New Stratos breathes new life into the name.

The same basic scheme that adorned the original rallying Lancia Stratos of the 1970s fits the new car every bit as well, right down to the yellow wheels. We'll shut up now and just let you enjoy it.
