MAT’s New Stratos Is Everything You Could Want From A Reborn Icon

A pair of Manifattura Automobili Torino’s (MAT) New Stratos cars are currently on display at the Geneva Motor Show.

The first takes obvious design influence from classic Lancia Stratos rally cars. There is a white, red, and green Alitalia livery, bright yellow wheels, and a cluster of four huge driving lights just above the front grille. The rally-inspired Stratos also includes yellow headlights and a pair of mudflaps at the rear.

As for the second New Stratos, it is a dark blue example featuring a pair of subtle racing stripes running over the bonnet, roof, and rear decklid.

Prior to the show kicking off, MAT confirmed that the two Geneva-bound cars were already sold. One of them is heading to Germany while the other is off to the United States. MAT hasn’t said which one is which, but the presence of orange reflectors on the dark blue example indicates that’s the one coming to the United States.

Powering the New Stratos is a 4.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 sourced from the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. This powertrain pumps out 540 hp and 383 lb-ft (519 Nm) of torque and, despite the 430 Scuderia only being mated solely to a semi-auto gearbox, MAT offers has fitter the V8 with six-speed manual transmission.

Production of the New Stratos will be limited to just 25 units globally. Customers can either source a 430 Scuderia (or a regular F430), or MAT will source one for them – and the price of admission to this beautiful and exclusive sports car is a cool 500,000 euros ($564,000).

  • Should have been a Lancia….COME ON FCA

  • TheHake

    I dearly dearly love this thing. But you shouldn’t sacrifice a 430 Scuderia for it. Please.

  • R55

    500k though. Come on now.

    FCA could have quite easily brought back Lancia on the cheap. What is now the Fiat 124 they built in conjunction with Mazda, originally intended to be an Alfa could have slotted between the two brands perfectly as a Lancia. The Mazda MX5 was deemed not good enough to be an Alfa and the 124 is really too pricey to be a Fiat. People would have flocked to have a Lancia though.

  • TheHake

    That’s all I’m asking.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    My type definitely. Not at that price though. But looks really like a very good execution

  • That’s the Safari spec? Or just regular New Stratos with old livery. I remember the rendering for Safari version which is look like a proper supercar off roader. Someone please made it.

  • Infinite1

    Looks good but I’d rather have the Scuderia
