Not a fan. The design looks dated compared to other sports cars in it's category (4C, Cayman, etc). No wonder the car looks dated, as nothing's been changed since the concept in 2010.
Oh sphincter. Did you really post this TWO minutes before I submitted our post? BASTARD!
That IS the 2010 concept. There's no images of the new car yet...
I don't even mind the 2010 concept look in that photo. It looks clean and smooth with a tasteful amount of flare in the wheel arches.
I've always preferred the 2005 concept.
Didn't even know about the 2010 Concept Car. I wouldn't complain a little bit if that ends up being the final look of the car. It looks fantastic
Not sure if serious lol. Looks like a penny racer. Anyway according to Marchione no one will buy this as no one desires or knows Lancia. Yes, no one desires what Lancia currently had to offer. Lancia should make limited run performance cars like this.
To me that looks like TV modern Muira concept. The 2010 for me looks more like a Stratos.
Agreed on the 2010 car. It's instantly recognizable as a derivative of the original car with some updated smoothing of some of the sharper lines. Drop about 500 hp in it and you're good to go.
Look before you leap lol.... There are no new details pictures yet. How can you even contemplate comparing the Cayman to a rally legend ? If its anything like the original who cares? If Ferrari blocked it they are running scared
The new Stratos will be likely be a lightweight, street-oriented, sports car, not a rally legend, which is why I brought up the Cayman as a competitor.
A bespoke, six-figure junior supercar with over 500hp is a competitor to a mass-market 300hp car that starts at $55k?
News to me.
If its limited numbers I seriously doubt it mass market like the Cayman ...not in the same league ...Its a Lancia (but not) I don't think many people in US truly appreciate the heritage of don cars such as Lancia or Alfa Romeo. Don't make "street cars" in Europe. As mentioned in the post above at 6 figure price range its not a "road car"
Looks like somebody squashed a 350z
Is that really a Stratos? It looks too big, heavy and circuit oriented instead of small, light and nimble for getting in and out of those tight corners as quickly as possible on any road surface.
Another who likes the 2010. But I was always under the impression the man who had it commissioned also didn’t want the car put into production.
The 2010 concept is easily identifiable as a modern day interpretation of the original Stratos.
The 2005 concept looks like it's been pumped full of too much air. A Stratos balloon if you will.
I'm dead serious. The 2010 concept is far too literal for me, it should be something new but not so derivative of the original.
I like 2005 versions chunky compact stance and exaggerated bodywork.
They were done by two different companies iirc.
This model would not look out of place in table top racers.
Post #2 contains a link to our news post on this subject, wherein we discuss these things:
I welcome it. Retro Mustang, Camaro, A110, now this.
I did read it but I skimmed through some of it ( I was having a sly break lol ).
Here the New Stratos. It looks just like the 2010 concept and its based on F430.
I loved the way it looked when it was first revealed and It still looks great.
Now this would truly be a great car to own.
I'm so glad they still go with that design.
I did some digging on this, and learned the original car didn't make it to production because Ferrari said the car couldn't be based on one of their own, meaning it would have needed a new chassis/drivetrain. The original creators at the time, ran into the issue Glickenhaus did; Ferrari would not support them in any way meaning parts would have to be sourced 2nd hand which isn't efficient.
Apparently, MAT is pushing through and building just 25 "new" Stratos, presumably all wrapped around used F430s like Glickenhause first did.
The bad part is that nobody will remember it or include it in racing games because it isn't an actual Lancia.
...Unless you're as quirky as Dirt 1, but that was the 2005 Fenomenon concept
