Dallara Stradale Is One Hell Of A Track Car – If You Can Afford It

It’s not very often that companies with as much motorsport experience as Dallara launch a production car. Consequently, the Stradale is a very desirable beast.

Powering the Dallara Stradale is Ford’s familiar turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, tuned to pump out 395 hp and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. Those ordering a Stradale can opt between a six-speed automated manual o,r alternatively, a six-speed manual ‘box.

While recently attending a track day, YouTuber NM2255 was able to film a yellow Stradale lapping the circuit. Unlike the Stradale which Top Gear recently tested, this particular one has the six-speed manual. It’s also yellow. Very yellow.

As previous reviews have noted, driving the track car at ten-tenths is virtually impossible for anyone who doesn’t have the first name of Lewis and the last name of Hamilton. However, that’s not to say that the Stradale isn’t an enjoyable piece of kit for the less experienced drivers out there.

Beyond its engine, one of the most important aspects of the Stradale is its exceptionally low overall weight. It tips the scales at just 855 kg (1885 lbs), can reach 60 mph (100 km/h) in 3.25 seconds and run through to a 174 mph (280 km/h) top speed.

Unfortunately, purchasing a Stradale requires €155,000 ($176,000) excluding taxes, which makes it out of reach for us mere mortals.

    I don’t have any track experience and it could be because of a slightly slippery surface or the way the driver handles the car but it looks a little bit udersteery.

  • While Stradale is a good car and has a good philosophy. I just can’t take the price, it’s dangerously close to Mono. Or you can always get an Ariel for that price.
