With a 550-horsepower Ferrari V8, the New Stratos will be built in GT, Rally, or Safari trim.
Back in 2010, German entrepreneur Michael Stoschek and his son commissioned Pininfarina to engineer and build a modern homage to the greatest rallying legend of all: The Lancia Stratos. The Italian team, led by Paolo Garella, used a shortened Ferrari F430 Scuderia chassis as a base, giving the short-wheelbase stunner over 550 horsepower in the process.
Up until now, the New Stratos remained a one-off, but that’s about to change, thanks to Paulo Garella’s new company. Manifattura Automobili Torino builds Glickenhaus’ SCG003s, Apollo’s 780 horsepower IE hypercar and the Devel Sixteen. And now that they’ve come to an agreement with the German side, the New Stratos joins the list.
Only 25 of these carbon fiber-bodied 550-horsepower specials will be offered worldwide, and customers will be able to choose from a GT racer version, a rally-ready Safari version, or the standard road-ready supercar.
Manifattura Automobili Torino will show off multiple versions of its new New Stratos at the Geneva Motor Show.
