Lancia Stratos (Stradale) heads to auction
There will probably never be another car quite as adorably bonkers as the Lancia Stratos. If you looked at it with fresh eyes now you'd probably never think that this car made it to production and that instead it's just a wacky one off prototype made for Geneva one year. So for it to have raced and won as well as being a great road car makes it all the better still.
This one (given the oh so subtle colour combo of bright green with gold wheels) is heading to auction at RM in May, meaning that it'll be one of the few to make it on to the market. Although a number of road going versions were made, they were never produced in any real numbers, meaning that they're now about as rare as you might expect a mid engine Italian sports car with a Ferrari power plant from the 70s would be.
I can't afford it, you probably can't afford it, so let's just look at pictures of it and sigh.
