The Lancia Stratos is one of the most-revered rally cars ever made. The Bertone-designed Italian wedge dominated Group 4 racing in the 1970s, winning the World Rally Championship three years in a row from 1974 – 1976. But not all Stratos were meant for competition, and homologation rules resulted in several road-going Stratos being sold to the public under the name Lancia Stratos HF Stradale. And one of the best-preserved in the world just went up for sale.
This 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale has never been disassembled or restored, and it’s likely one of the most original road-going examples left of the 492 total Stratos that were built. It’s finished in the factory-original Rosso Arancio over Havana Alcantara interior, possesses the 2418cc Ferrari V6 behind the seats, and has just 6,632 km (4,121 miles) on the odometer. The car has had just three owners, one of whom owned it for nearly three decades. As expected, the car includes highly-detailed work records, including the original delivery paperwork from Lancia. The car is for sale now through Tom Hartley Jnr in the U.K. and is priced at £485,000 — roughly $680,000.
