Looks lovely. Is it an original or a kit ?
Cheers

It does look superb. Must have taken a fair bit of time as well as money.

I seem to recall Top Gear did a feature on a Stratos kit car, could it have been your friends :?:

I could be wrong, but I don't think Top Gear have ever featured a kit car have they ?

Love to see some interior pic Casper, and I hope you get a spin in it next time :mrgreen: (Me ? Jealous ? Just a little :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: )

Hi, I can't find right now the youtube video but I am quite sure that Jeremy Clarkson drove a Hawk HF3000 replica of a Stratos "Alitalia" with Alfa Romeo V6 3.0 engine.
I remember that the car suffered a lock of a front brake caliper.
The Hawk HF is an exact copy of the original, the parts of the Hawk can be used as spare on real Lancia Stratos.
Very nice car :)

Top Gear did feature a kit Stratos - NOT the one in the pictures here - but they slated it badly.
The brakes seized, something broke, and it handled like a tractor.

Apparently the one they borrowed wasn't built too well.

The one here looks great.
