New Stratos’ Reborn. The ‘New Stratos’ project is to go ahead, several years after being first unveiled. Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT) and New Stratos have reached an agreement to make a limited series of the Lancia-inspired supercar.
The car was developed by Michael Stoschek and originally built by Pininfarina. MAT will now produce up to 25 units. On offer will be a GT racer version, a Safari version and a version that’s “a competent supercar for daily use.”
The design echoes the lines of the Lancia Stratos and even retains characteristics like the integrated helmet pouch in the doors.
The New Stratos is based on a Ferrari 430 Scuderia, whose 4.3-litre V8 engine can be coaxed to deliver over 550hp. The car in all its variants will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March, where prices will be announced. For more details, visit www.new-stratos.com
