MAT's New Lancia Stratos Will Make UK Debut At Salon Privé
Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT) will launch the new limited edition Lancia Stratos in the UK at the 2020 Salon Privé, which is scheduled for September.

The Salon Privé car will be the latest interpretation of the legendary 70s rally car, with each unit being based on a donor Ferrari F430, which is then heavily modified with weight-saving and increased agility in mind.

Its 4.3-liter V8 engine can produce up to 540 HP, which gets you from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.3 seconds, before maxing you out at 170 mph (273 km/h).

“We are happy and proud to showcase our New Stratos for the first time in the UK in such an iconic landmark. Salon Privè is the perfect fit for our cars and for the kind of experience we always try to offer to our clients: we look forward to presenting the New Stratos in September in Blenheim Palace,” said MAT marketing manager, Riccardo Garella.

While the first Stratos prototype made its debut in 2010, it wasn’t until 2018 that the final version went on sale, after German company New Stratos GbR granted MAT the rights to produce the vehicle.

“The MAT Stratos is a brilliant modern-day interpretation of a 70s icon and the passion, skill and engineering that have gone into creating this stunning homage are clear to see. In designing the new car, MAT have made every effort to recreate a car that is as true as can be to the original, even down to the helmet compartment built into the inner door compartment. With just 25 examples being built, it will be super rare and so we are thrilled to be able to show the car to our guests, many of whom are collectors of limited production supercars,” added Salon Prive sales director, David Bagley.

The 2020 Salon Privè is scheduled to take place September 23rd through to the 26th.
