1976 LANCIA Stratos

In true Lancia style, the Stratos was initally a Motor Show car designed to showcase new Lancia technology. The prototype was first shown by the coachbuilder Nuccio Bertone at the 1970 Turin Motor Show, fitted with a Fulvia HF four-cylinder engine. The little coupé attracted much attention and a year later, again at the Turin Motor Show, the prototype that was essentially the definitve version was presented, equipped with a Ferrari V6 engine (from the Dino 246). The decision to produce a limited series of the Stratos was made in March 1971 to allow Lancia to compete in the World Rally Championship.

The Lancia Stratos on offer is a 1976 « Stradale » that has remained in Italy since leaving the factory and has had just three owners from new. This example, perfectly suited to rallying and hill climbs, has never taken part in any competitive event of this kind. The red paintwork and beige alcantara interior is presented in wonderful condition. Finished off with orange carpets in true 70s style, the car’s lucky drivers will be transported back in time to the days when the Stratos, with its unique road-holding capabilities, won the World Rally Championship (1976/1977 and 1978). The original dashboard is in remarkable condition. The car had a full mechanical service a few months ago, including the electrical system. It is fitted with four new tyres.
The Stratos, a highly sought-after model that has earned its place in the history of motor racing, has become an icon, with numerous victories to its name, and comparable perhaps to the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta short chassis. Here is a great investment, and not only for the fun it provides at the wheel, particularly on winding mountain roads ! Its light weight, 980 kg, powered by the 190 bhp 2.4-litre V6 Dino engine, turns this distinctive car into an extremely agile rocket.
