When the Agents got a first look at the one-off Lancia Stratos, we were pretty blown away.
Not only was the original a tiny, unique-looking and rally car, now the new Stratos was too. That's probably because the new one is a modern interpretation or a "retro throwback," as some would say.
Regardless, we can't think of a better way to bring the Stratos back to life than using the inner workings of a Ferrari 430 Scuderia. And in black, this car's a looker.
Although our hopes of driving one were quickly dashed when we found out it was a special creation for a German entrepreneur, one man was lucky enough to pilot this legacy. With that said, here are some brief thoughts from EVO Magazine's John Barker:

How does it compare?
To a 430 Scuderia? Quite different. In fact, only the paddle-shift, the blare of the V8 and some of the switchgear suggests the donor car. To the original Stratos? Design-wise it’s a fabulous re-creation of the original; slightly bigger in all dimensions with modern aero thinking incorporated, but the spirit of the Stratos HF is here in spades.
Anything else I need to know?
A limited run of this hugely desirable car is looking very likely, at a price still to be decided. Start saving now…
