Description

This rare Lancia Stratos, carrying chassis-no. 829ARO*001666* was delivered on the 22nd May 1975 to its first owner, Sig. Domenico Magagna from Padova. In 1976, a spirited drive in wet and soggy conditions ended in tragedy with Magnana losing control and hitting a tree. The impact was hard enough to bend the chassis beyond repair and a new chassis was ordered. About a month later he received his car, fully rebuilt on a factory new chassis – but without a chassis number stamped. On the occasion of the next authority inspection on the 14th January 1977, a new chassis no. 51921/76 was allocated. On the 15th September 1986 Magagna sold the Lancia to Guido Ferrari of Reggio Nell’Emilia who in turn sold the car in 1994 to Mauro Zanichelli, also from Reggio Nell’Emilia. From 2004 to 2006 The Stratos was owned by Keysport company and later sold to Fausto Marino. At the end of 2008 the car was finally imported into Switzerland and in 2016 received a Swiss registration. This Lancia Stratos is in very good condition and provides the new owner with the chance to own a piece of international Rally history. It has completed its last Swiss MOT (incl. Veteran status) in November 2018, where the original chassis-no. *001666* was confirmed by the highest authority, and is now "ready to go". Just mind those trees, please!
