Lancia Stratos
The name 'Stratos' was first given to the Lancia Stratos Zero which was an impractical design study that had a Lancia Fulvia HF engine mid-mounted, but the only door was a hinged windscreen. Marcello Gandini at Bertone was asked to re-work the Stratos Zero concept car into a Rally car, and produced something almost as extraordinary as the Stratos Zero because the Rally car did not need to be a practical every day road car. The Stratos first entered competition in 1973 winning two events in the Prototype category. During 1974 further victories followed, and the World Rally Championship was won for 1974 and also for 1975 and 1976.Around 490 Lancia Stratos cars were produced.
