A soulful Ferrari Lancia
The Stratos was designed by Marcello Giandini, one of the best Italian talents of the twentieth century.

It’s only been three hands since 1975, with its last owner keeping it in its current state since 1994.

There is a lot of power, but think that the car barely weighs a ton – 980 kilos to be precise – and then you do not soprenderéis a tip of 230 km / h from 0 to 100 km / h in just over 6 seconds. All the power goes to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox.
