Auction Block: 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale

Regulations are usually seen as the bummer stopping a good time. Though sometimes these requirements work in our favor, like the FIA rule that forced Italian auto manufacturer Lancia into production in order to compete in The World Rally Championship. Lancia stepped up to this challenge in 1973 and fired up the production line to pump out 492 pieces of their purebred rally machine, the Stratos HF Stradale.

Embodying all that made the prototype rally vehicles qualified for the track, this street ready production car is perched on coilover suspension and a beefy set of Michelin XWX tires. A Ferrari Dino 2.4L V6 cranks power to a five speed manual tranny, pushing out 190 hp and a top speed of over 140 mph. Accompanying the sale is a comprehensive collection of sales receipts and owner’s literature, ensuring you will have the complete story behind this immaculate example of rally history.

Purchase: $400,000+
