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.

A limited run of this hugely desirable car is looking very likely, at a price still to be decided. Start saving now…
