The original Lancia Stratos is one of the most revered and legendary supercars of all time. It's radical wedge shaped profile, minuscule dimensions, and Ferrari-sourced engine all combine to make it a challenging yet rewarding drivers car, and one which was a success on both the road and track.

Over the years, rumors of new Lancia Stratos models, and various concept models have been circulated, including the Sbarro Ionos concept from 1997, and more recently the Fenomenon Stratos from 2005. Unfortunately, both cars failed to make it to production.

However the Stratos is now back for 2010, thanks to Michael Stoschek - CEO and founder of the German auto supplier Brose KG, Pininfarina, and Ferrari. Interestingly Stoschek also helped finance the Fenonmenon Stratos project.

The new Lancia Stratos is for now just a one-off specially commissioned supercar built for Stoschek by Pininfarina - that must be a bit of a slap in the face for Bertone, who were the Italian styling house which designed the original Stratos! However it has been suggested that if enough serious enquires about the car are made, a small production run could be on the cards.

The 2010 Lancia Stratos is based on a Ferrari F430 Scuderia platform, and also features the same 4.3 litre V8 engine and F1 paddle-shift 6 speed transmission. If the engine's been left in the same state of tune as it was found, then that means 510 horsepower and 346 lb-ft (470 Nm) of torque @ 5,250 rpm are on offer.

Testing of the car has been undertaken by Tiago Monteiro, an ex-F1 racing driver so it should be setup to a pretty hardcore formula.
