First drive: Lancia Stratos

Richard Bremner


Imagine making a modern recreation of your all-time favourite car, and having it built to such a high standard that it can be compared with the best supercars in the world.

That's what Michael Stoschek has achieved with his remake of the Lancia Stratos, the dramatic mid-engined 1970s rally-winner. This new Stratos has been designed and built by Italian design house Pininfarina as a one-off based on the Ferrari F430 Scuderia and we are among the very few to have driven it. And it's brilliant.
