If you’re a driving enthusiast, then we can’t imagine you not wanting to have something like the Dallara Stradale in your garage.
It tips the scales at 1,885 lbs (855 kg), while its 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four puts out 395 HP (400 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. What’s more, you can even get it with a six-speed manual. As for the asking price, that would be €155,000 (roughly $174,000 at today’s exchange rates).
There aren’t many street-legal cars in the world that can generate an amount downforce that it nearly matches their weight. Yet, if you opt for the Dallara Stradale’s optional rear wing, you gain 1,808 lbs (820 kg) of downforce at 174 mph (280 km/h).
This particular car, spotted recently by D&A Crew in Meuspath, Germany, doesn’t have the wing. By the way, Meuspath is very close to the Nurburgring, an ideal place to drive something like this track-focused weapon.
So, let’s recap: the Stradale’s got an ultra lightweight construction, manual gearbox, unassisted steering, and nearly its own weight in downforce if you opt for the rear wing. It also sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) 3.25 seconds, which on paper puts it on the same level as, say, a stock Lamborghini Huracan.
Yet, which of the two would you choose for a visceral driving experience, the baby Lambo or the Dallara Stradale? Decisions, decisions…
