Video: The Uncompromising Legendary Lancia Stratos

Lancia Stratos

“It’s a symphony of vaguely disastrous noises, which I really love.”

A few years ago on a Sunday evening after spending the weekend at the Phillip Island Classic, as everyone from the event was busy packing up and heading home, we were walking down the main street looking for a bite to eat when we saw a wonderful sight. A Lancia Stratos Group 5, dressed in full livery, parked under a tree on the side of the road.

It was such a beautiful contrast, this manic machine which we’d watched receiving the beans all weekend on the track, resting by the side of the road in this serene little town.

This video from Petrolicious elaborates on what makes the Stratos so cool, is beautifully shot and is an excellent watch. Enjoy!
