The man from Ferrari says yes - in fact, he says Bellissima! That is a good description of the new Stratos. It is a recreation of the classic Lancia Stratos from the seventies. This is the President of Ferrari Luca di Montezemolo test driving the new Stratos for the first time on Ferrari's own test track Fiorano. He liked it so much he signed it! The new one off model had been commissioned to Pininfarina by Michael Stoschek for himself and his son, Maximilian. This model designed in 2010 is exclusive and unique. A new, modern Stratos is being designed for 2011, in tandem with the 40th anniversary of the original model. The car will use the 4.3L V8 engine currently used in the Ferrari F430 Scuderia. The car's body panels are speculated to be carbon fibre. It is further speculated that this car will enjoy a limited-production run. The Stratos was a very successful rally car during the 1970s and early 1980s. It started a new era in rallying as it was the first car designed from scratch for this kind of competition. The three leading men behind the entire rallying project were Lancia team manager Cesare Fiorio, British racer/engineer Mike Parkes and factory rally driver Sandro Munari. 1970 Lancia Stratos Zero, the first prototype of Lancia Stratos The bodywork was designed by Marcello Gandini, head designer at Bertone, and the technical layout was loosely based on a (Lancia Fulvia V4 powered) concept car called Stratos Zero which had been first shown at the Turin Motor Show in 1970. The body was wedge-shaped, and unusually short and wide, providing maximum traction. The car later appeared in Michael Jackson's 1988 film, Moonwalker as well as in his music video for Smooth Criminal. The car won the 1974, 1975 and 1976 championship titles in the hands of Sandro Munari and Bj?rn Waldeg?rd, and might have gone on to win more had not internal politics within the Fiat group placed rallying responsibility on the Fiat 131 Abarths. As well as victories on the 1975, 1976 and 1977 Monte Carlo Rally, all courtesy of Munari, the Stratos won the event with the private Chardonnet Team as late as 1979. Automobile design consultant Chris Hrabalek has the largest Lancia Stratos Collection in the world - he owns 11 unique Lancia Stratos cars, including the fluorescent red 1971 factory prototype and the 1977 Safari Rally car.
