Default New Lancia Stratos to enter limited production as 542bhp supercar

New Lancia Stratos to enter limited production as 542bhp supercar
Manifattura Automobili Torino will build up to 25 examples of Pininfarina-designed homage to 1970s legend; will be displayed at Geneva motor show

The New Lancia Stratos will be put into limited production by Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT), the bespoke sports car builder has announced. The 542bhp, 383lb ft reborn Stratos will be displayed at the Geneva motor show, and is based on the Ferrari F430.

The model, a homage to Lancia's legendary sports and rally car, of which 492 examples were built between 1973 and 1978, was first unveiled in concept form in 2010.

Three versions of the car will be made - a GT racer, a Safari version and what the brand calls 'a comptetent supercar for the daily use'. The second of these is likely a rally-inspired version - another throwback to the car's motorsport heritage.



At 4181mm long, 1971mm wide and 1240mm high, it's considerably larger than the original Stratos, and is 267kg heavier, at 1247kg. These dimensions make it the same length as an Audi TT, although it's considerably wider and lower to the ground, weighing around the same as the TT 1.8.

The car's 4308cc V8 powers it to 62mph in 3.3sec and on to 124mph in 9.7sec, with a top speed of between 170mph and 205mph. Weight is kept down thanks to carbonfibre bodywork, while the weight split is 44% front, 56% rear.

It was commisioned by billionaire German entrepreneur Michael Stoschek, chairman of car parts supplier Brose and a rallying enthusiast. The design was penned by Pininfarina, whereas the original Stratos was the work of Bertone.


The mid-engined design features the wedge profile, semicircular windscreen, side tanks, removable front and rear servicing hoods and engine-access hatch of the original.



The original concept was based on a cut-down aluminium spaceframe structure from a Ferrari 430 Scuderia and used that car's drivetrain. However, in 2011, Ferrari blocked Pininfarina and "any other Ferrari-dependent suppliers" from putting the New Stratos into production, prompting the car's designers to look elsewhere for a base.

MAT's announcement doesn't state any technical details of the production New Stratos, but it does say that it has obtained from Stoschek "permission to replicate the New Stratos using the same design and technologies of his car".

The new car has similar dimensions to 3710mm-long original Stratos, with a similarly short wheelbase, and is claimed to have a "lightweight design"; the concept had a kerbweight of 1274kg.

The only detail revealed about the mechanicals thus far is that the engine produces 542bhp, while pictures show the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles of an automatic gearbox. The concept's Ferrari-sourced 4.3-litre V8 produced 532bhp.

The New Stratos's stripped-back interior mirrors many features of the original's, including an integrated roll cage and door compartments for driver and passenger helmets.



Stoschek said: “I am delighted that other passionate car enthusiasts will be able to experience how the successor to the most fascinating rally car of the 1970s still sets the bar for design and performance”.

No price for the New Stratos has been revealed, although a price of around £600,000 was mooted when Autocar first reported on the concept. Customers will have "a choice of different options and variations".

MAT's portfolio includes the Apollo Arrow and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003S. The company, which designs, engineers and builds one-off and limited production luxury and racing models, is headed up by its founder, Paolo Garella, who previously worked for Pininfarina and has been involved with more than 50 bespoke car projects over the past 30 years.

Prices start at €550,000 (around £487,000) for the car, minus the cost of the Ferrari F430 donor car. First deliveries are in April 2018, and right-hand drive cars will be made, if a customer orders one.

Default New Stratos Heading To Geneva With Manual Gearbox

Quote:
MAT announces world premiere of New Stratos with manual gearbox at Geneva

Manifattura Automobili Torino is happy to announce its renewed participation to the 89th Edition of the Geneva International Motorshow



The New Stratos will be under the lights of Geneva with MANIFATTURA AUTOMOBILI TORINO: MAT will present, in world premiere, the first ever New Stratos with manual gearbox: another feature that reinforce the “analogic essence” of this car, and will ensure a great enjoyment for the drivers that will choose this configuration. With this option MAT is offering a unique experience combining the massive, well controlled torque of the naturally aspirated V8 with the excitement of the manual transmission, an experience that is less and less available on modern sport cars. This feature perfectly fits with the spirit of this project born and developed under the leadership of Michael and Maximilian Stoschek.

Last year Manifattura Automobili Torino announced the agreement with New Stratos GbR about the licensing for the production of a 25-cars, limited series of the New Stratos; in this edition of the Geneva International Motorshow MAT will display two of the production cars: Number 001 for the German market and the first US car, both ready for delivery.

The timeless design of the New Stratos, with its striking lines and lightweight bodywork, it’s already wellknown throughout the world. The New Stratos is a car born to be driven: handling, control and stability on tight and twisty roads are the true essence of this supercar that does not shy away when confronted with dirt or snow. The interior reflects the spirit of the car: essential, bare but classic, a perfect combination of carbon fiber and technical surfaces to ensure style and sportive feeling.

Paolo Garella, CEO of Manifattura Automobili Torino, has announced: “Geneva has always been the place representing the heart and spirit of the automotive industry: to attend as MAT for the second year in a row is statement of our determination and will to carry on with this adventure and a recognition of the quality of our products. To be able to present our production models of the New Stratos is something special: we are confident of the quality that we have achieved, and we are proud to show it to the world from this stage”.

Default New Stratos arrives in production guise, classic livery

New Stratos arrives in production guise, classic livery at 2019 Geneva auto show
Viknesh Vijayenthiran
First unveiled in 2010, the New Stratos brought one of the most iconic rally car designs into the modern era.

The project was the dream of Michael Stoschek, a German billionaire with a love of rally cars of the original Lancia Statos' era. He commissioned Pininfarina to build the modern car, which the Italian design house did using the shortened underpinnings of a Ferrari F430 Scuderia.

With Stoschek's permission, Pininfarina was set to build additional examples but Ferrari blocked the project from happening. Now, nine years on, there's a company happy to defy the Prancing Horse.



The company is Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT), which on Tuesday unveiled its first two customer examples of the New Stratos at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, one of them wearing the stunning Alitalia livery that featured on the original Stratos HF rally cars of the 1970s.

MAT is run by Paolo Garella, who previously worked for Pininfarina and was closely involved in the development of the New Stratos. This experience helped ensure that MAT's New Stratos matches the quality of Pininfarina's example delivered to Stoschek a decade ago. MAT plans to build 25 units all up.

Starting with the aluminum chassis of the F430 Scuderia, around 8.0 inches is taken out, mostly from the wheelbase. The resulting length is 164.6 inches. A steel roll cage is then installed and a body made entirely from carbon fiber built around it. The dry weight of the car is 2,750 pounds, with the weight ratio split 44/56 front-to-rear.

Power comes from the F430 Scuderia's 4.3-liter V-8, which in stock form delivers 523 horsepower and 585 pound-feet of torque. MAT can boost this to around 600 hp should the customer desire, however. Drive is to the rear wheels only, via a 6-speed manual or 6-speed sequential transmission, and the car is also fitted with adjustable dampers and Eibach springs, carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes, and 19-inch wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2. The tires measure a chunky 305/30 at the rear.

As you may have guessed, the car isn't cheap. Customers will need to source their own F430 Scuderia and then pay $617,000 on top for the conversion, which MAT is handling at its facility in Turin, Italy. Customers will also be able to choose whether they want road, rally or “Safari” off-road versions.

Clearly I would need a tarmac and safari version in full livery, a body in white version of both as well as a street car.

Wow...just wow.

If ever there was a car that deserves to wear gold wheels, it’s that work of art.

Will get wallpaper sized photos when I get home...



and some tissues.


*edit*

They’d be great stable mates:

Well Mr. Nick my man, you are also one of the few people who can actually buy the F430 in the first place. I may as well be saying I would like a life size replica of the Hindenburg made of cookies and Creme Ice cream. So in that vein, I love that stratos.

In that case I'll take all of the current Victoria's Secret models, a case of Viagra, 5 cases of Bollinger Grand Annee, 100 lbs of lobsters, and a deserted island for 3-days. I would say a week, but would be dead after the 4th day. Fine, a week.
