Lancia Stratos revival new videos

Lancia Stratos will be unveiled next month

Here's a video of more testing of the Lancia Stratos at the Cicuito di Balocco test track in northern Italy.

The video shows a test run by driver Tiago Monteiro of a Stratos that is aiming to merge its 70s, futuristic flair with more modern technology.

The Lancia Stratos revival was inspired by German car collector Michael Stoscheck and his son Maximilian. Michael Stoscheck is current head of auto parts supplier Brose. It was designed by Jason Castriota, now chief of design at Saab, and is being built by Italian coach-maker/designer Pininfarina.

The Stratos will be made of a rigid carbon fiber body. Power-to-weight ratio is expected to be 2.25 kg/hp or 364 hp per tonne. Front to back weigh distribution will be around 50:50.

Previous peeks into the cockpit have revealed an instrument panel with a redline of 9,000 rpm and a speedometer that reaches 360 km/h (224 mph).

Production is expected to be very limited - perhaps to around 25 units.

The Stratos will make its debut in at the Circuit Paul Richard in Marseille, France next month.

brilliant, limited production means expensive and huge profit margins....the old stratos were too limited in numbers for sucha popular design...so this is a good way to get some people satisfied

The only flaw of this car is the very limited number of units which will be produced.

yeah, right... simply mentioning the name of Lancia makes me sick and I don't care how good was Delta Integrale (just an exception that confirms the rule - Lancia = the worst European car maker) that's why they sell only in Italy and in the rest of Europe the sales probably are reaching the "glorious level" of around 20 cars per year... yeah, really good, ha, ha... and BTW this car looks like a joke toy - LANCIA MC DONALD THE DUCK YUCK, ha, ha...

The cars now are awful. I'll grant you that. But Lancia hasn't made a Lancia since the Delta Integrale. But Lancia's history is as significant as Ferrari's or Alfa's, the difference is that Lancia didn't survive. By the way, this isn't made by Lancia so keep an open mind.
