Pininfarina's Ferrari Lancia Stratos Supercar

By Privy Editor

The dream of a collector and European Rallye Champion, and the mastery of a legendary designer and coachbuilder have come together to write a new chapter in the history of supercars. The result is the New Stratos, a one-off engineered and built by Pininfarina for the German business man Michael Stoschek.



The model pays homage to the legendary 1970s Lancia rally car made from borrowed parts from a Ferrari Dino V6. Inspired by the Fenomenon Style Model, Pininfarina translated the original Stratos styling theme of the Bertone Stratos of the 70’s into a modern day one-off through some styling implementation and style feasibility activities. What is more, the car was tailored on Michael and  his son Maximilian Stoschek’s technical and formal specifications.



The New Stratos explores the theme in a contemporary formal approach, without neglecting a single aspect in terms of function or performance. While this is quite literally a dream car, the New Stratos is a living, breathing car with a beating 4.3L V8 horsepower heart to propel it – where permitted – to 200 km/h in less than 10 seconds. Since late 2008, the car has been engineered and manufactured at the Cambiano style and engineering centre of Pininfarina. The project was managed by Pininfarina’s Special Project Division confirming Pininfarina’s intention to offer special cars among its range of services, in response to an increasing demand for unique cars from enthusiasts and collectors.



Thus far, there have been roughly 40 individuals, from both Europe and overseas, who have registered their interest  via  the New Stratos website. Several other companies in addition to Pininfarina have offered to manufacture the limited run. As a result, costs for further vehicles should be somewhat reduced. Currently the calculated cost of the donor vehicle – a mint condition Ferrari F430 – at around €100,000, with the anticipated cost of conversion at around €300,000.
