Brilliant new and old Lancia Stratos
Turns out the modern-day interpretation of the iconic Lancia Stratos that took the internet by storm the past couple of weeks is in fact a real car and it will be produced. German media, including Auto Motor und Sport magazine, reported today that the Stratos is a one off -at least for now- commissioned by Michael Stoschek, owner and CEO of the German automotive supplier, Brose KG. It is not clear if the Lancia badge will be used on the final car since it's not an official product.
AMS reported that the car, which pays homage to the legendary Lancia Stratos HF of the 1970s, is being built and developed by famous Italian design house, Pininfarina, and it's possible that it could be produced in an extremely small number of copies if more very deep-pocketed customers are interested.
