Pininfarina Now Taking Orders for New Stratos
Back in August our correspondent Jonathon Ramsey brought you news of the New Stratos. A modern re-interpretation of the iconic Lancia rallying machine, the New Stratos was commissioned by wealthy German enthusiast Michael Stoschek from Italian design house Pininfarina. But though the project stood as a one-off, both parties considered building a small series of them if demand were sufficient.
Well according to the latest reports, the demand is both present and eager to get their hands on the New Stratos. Though that first example – absorbing all the development expenses – cost about €3 million, Stoschek and Pininfarina reportedly figure they could build more for about €400,000 apiece, covering €100,000 for a used Ferrari F430 on which the Stratos is based and €300,000 to convert it. At those figures, the pair reportedly have about 40 interestedcustomers anxiously awaiting, and could very well find more.
