Lancia Stratos, the king of Group 4

If you missed the video today, enjoy now 14 Lancia Stratos in action during the 9th Rally Legend Event. This car is incredibly rare, just 500 were made and now the average value of a rally version is around 750k-1m €, and around 250k € for the Stradale edition.

It was one of the fastest rally car ever made, it has won for 3 times the World Rally Championships, in 1974, 1975 and 1976. The Stratos is powered by a 2.4L Ferrari V6 engine; for racing the engine was tuned up to 280hp and even to 560hp with a single KKK turbocharger, with a curb weight of just 980kg you can imagine how fast and very good the steering was.

I really love this car, if you like it i will post in the future some more historic footages and reviews about this king of the rallies.
