Lancia Stratos prototype reportedly just a Pininfarina one-off


Last week Lancia fans became ecstatic when a couple of spy photos from a Fiat test track showcased what looked like a spiritual successor to the iconic Lancia Stratos model.

Seeing as how the car borrowed heavily from the 2005 Lancia Stratos Fenomenon, rumors immediately pointed to a revived sportscar, which would act as a halo model for the rest of the Lancia range.

Now, a new report from ItaliaSpeed has shed some light on the mysterious model. It seems that a very rich customer asked Italian design house Pininfarina to develop a special one-off model, in the vein of the Lancia Stratos.

According to the same report, the car is based on a shortened Ferrari F430, and might keep the massive V8 engine of the Italian sportscar. As you can imagine, big power, low weight and improved aerodynamics are some of the best ingredients for any car, so this model will honor the Stratos’ legacy.

Expect this Pininfarina one-off to appear at upcoming auto shows, before the Italian company sells it to its mysterious customer.
