New 1:8 scale model shows how design of racing GT2 version of New Stratos could look
30 November 2010

The investors behind the resurrection of the iconic Lancia Stratos plan to take their new model racing.

Previewed here with this 1:8 scale model, the new Stratos racer would be built to GT2-specification and would feature a range of cosmetic and mechanical upgrades over the already hard-edged road car, which is being limited to just 25 units. The detailed model has been created by Amalgam.

The original Stratos was best known for its rallying exploits, but the car also raced on the track, too. A respected engineering firm, Turin-based Danisi Engineering, will work with Chris Hrabalek and Michael Stoschek, the pair behind the road car's revival, to make the racer a reality.

The model, developed by model maker Amalgam and one that can be had for £3250, shows off the styling direction of the new Stratos racer, including a light blue livery, substantial aerodynamic changes to increase both downforce and cooling, and a large, fixed rear wing.

Mechanical upgrades are unknown; the 1257kg road car uses a shortened 430 Scuderia chassis and carbonfibre bodywork, with power coming from a 533bhp version of the Ferrari's 4.3-litre V8 engine.
