What a video of the legendary Lancia Stratos with no BS music to get in the way of the exhaust notes!

Thanks to Nicolas for the tip!

    This is the car engine noise I most often made with my mouth as a kid. I might still be doing it in the shower once in a while. Don’t tell anyone.

    The BEST , and most exciting Rally car ever . Bar none ! As well as the ONLY model rally car to continue winning WRC events in privateers hands well after the factory ( FIAT/Lancia remember ) had abandoned it ( for the Abarth 131 )

    As a road car ( I’ve driven two ) it was an absolute hoot and a half as well .Pure insanity on wheels . Had they been available here I might not of gone down the Prancing Horse alley when in my Exotic ownership phase . Tried like heck to import one but …..

    The World today needs another ‘ real’ Stratos ( not the rebadged 458 thats out there ) if only for the sheer entertainment of the beast . Read up on Michelle Mouton’s comments about driving the monster as well as Walter Rohrl and Sandro Munari’s . What an era . The tail end of Group 4 leading into Group B . Todays WRC pales in comparison .

      that’s great you’ve driven one…..Group 4 and Group B was just amazing……WRC will never be that exciting again.
