Difficult to believe that the Stratos was designed almost 40 years ago. Even today this iconic Lancia simply remains futuristic. An absolute masterpiece from the hand of Marcello Gandini at Bertone design. Conceived from the beginning as a winner, the Stratos did fullfill the promesses. World rally champion title in 1974, 75 and 76! Although Lancia should have constructed 500 Stratos models to obtain FIA homologation apparently only 400 were built. This particular car was constructed in 1974 and sold to the 1st owner in 1979 as a "Stradale" by the well known Lancia distributor in France Charbonnaux in Marseille (he employed rally driver Bernard Darnische in his rally stable). Initial registration was 12 MZ 78. Two more French enthusiasts owned this Stratos before my Belgian customer acquired this road-prepared Lancia sportscar in 2005. Actually in excellent all-round condition having covered only 30.000 Km, this Lancia Stratos Stradale is not only looking good visually, also from the mechanical point of view this Lancia is simply super. Just before her departure to Belgium in 2005 she benefitted from an engine rebuild by Milano Racing in Marseille. In fact the 2,4 liter Ferrari Dino V6 still needs running-in. On the road the least I can say is that sensations are strong! Thanks to: - fully adjustable state of the art all-round independant suspension, - 4 disc brakes, - ultra short wheel-base of 2m18, - peculiar seating position with 180° panoramic visibility at front (and almost none at rear), - with the standard 190 HP the Dino V6 engine produces all the punch one hopes for, - very direct 5-speed gearbox, - etc, etc... From the Lancia Stratos one can surely say she is a 'one of kind' sportscar. This particular Stradale is absolutely one to have (rare), to keep (future value is bright) end to enjoy!
