If money wasn’t an issue I’m sure one of the first cars you’d look to add to your “dream” garage would be a Lancia Stratos. Whoever is lucky enough to have them will be able to make this red (Red-Orange) “dream” their own.
This particular 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale is the 132nd of 492 Stradales built and is in excellent condition. It is powered by a 2.4-liter V6 engine with triple Weber carburetors, producing 192 horsepower, which is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
It has independent suspension and ventilated disc brakes at all four corners, and will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s in St. Moritz, Switzerland, with an estimated sale price of between 600,000 and 700,000 Swiss Francs, which translates to €615,000 to €717,000.
The car in question, chassis number 1666, was delivered to its first owner in Padua, Italy on May 22, 1975. Unfortunately, its first owner crashed it into a tree the following year, causing irreparable damage to the chassis. The Stratos was then repaired by a local Lancia dealer, using a new chassis.
The first owner kept the car until 1986, when it passed into the hands of its second owner, who retained ownership until 1994. The Lancia later passed through the hands of a marque specialist, Key Sport, before being sold in February 2007 in Italy.
