On completion in 2006 it passed official SVA approval-procedures permitting legal use on UK public roads, where MoTed every year since. Correctly registered with UK Driver & Vehicle Licensing Authority, it's described on its V5 logbook as a ‘Napiersport Coupe’. And for those remembering the Stratos appearing on Lombard RAC rallies of the late 1970s/ early 80s as being British rallying’s Golden Age, it bears an evocative number plate.....
Correct Pirelli rally livery dating from the 1978 World Championship year is complemented by lots of authentic Stratos fixtures & fittings, while other nice touches abound - including an authentic ‘Bjorn Waldegaard’ signature on the driver’s door.
The real Stratos had a 2. 4 litre, V6 Ferrari Dino engine, but this evocation (whose engine, frame & high-quality fibreglass bodywork still weigh less than a tonne) rejoices in a 3 litre, 12-valve, Alfa Romeo V6. The glorious and operatic “Busso”, thought by many to be the best engine Alfa Romeo ever created; if not the best production-car engine ever; from any marque anywhere.
Under the skin, subtle modern design differences through the tubular chassis and rear suspension of a ‘Corse I’ give stiffer poise and enhanced driver confidence for normal use, while still retaining similar appearance, stance, power-outputs and driving characteristics from the original icon, only in a more manageable package.
In regular summer use with its current, second owner for over four years now; with well over 4, 600 miles on the clock to date since its 2006 assembly by the first; the current MoT certificate runs until September 2019. Enjoyed by me since early 2015, but used in dry conditions only, there’s been immense pleasure from going out and driving the thing for the sheer sake of it on some classic northern roads. Or else taking it along to a classic car show: not to show-off, but share with like-minded enthusiasts who appreciate the sight of a Stratos - at rest or ‘full-chat’.
Included on sale would be all original sales material and the dedicated manufacturer’s build-manual for this kit, plus technical notes & drawings. Presented in a genuine ‘LANCIA’ ring-binder are MoT test certificates; invoices for new parts fitted & routine maintenance work done; plus numerous photographs, Stratos-related memorabilia, and other relevant documentation forming this unique vehicle’s comprehensive 2-volume history file. Amongst much routine expenditure during its current ownership, the car has benefited from a major service (involving replacement clutch; new timing-belt; plugs, oil & filter etc.) and always starts first time.
The car may be inspected in East Yorkshire (Northern England, UK) by appointment only. For international enquirers, Leeds or Humberside are your suggested nearest airports; car ferries regularly leaving nearby Hull for the ports of Rotterdam, Europort & Zeebrugge.
Giving more pleasure, interest & enjoyment than any other car ever owned, but reluctantly advertised by its mature owner only to finance a separate, time-limited obligation, car will be immediately withdrawn from the market once that requirement disappears - why only serious candidates for ownership should apply. (So, please, no more suggested 'swaps' with Porsches, GT40s, WHY, thank you!)
Well-informed enthusiasts know a decent replica coming to market is a fairly rare event, so I guess the successful applicant will be the decisive type: someone who thinks & acts fast. Seeing as what’s evoked here – a 1978 works team car in Pirelli livery - could command £650, 000+ at auction, but - allowing for the fact this one’s mere evocation, its number plate negotiable - a suggested offer price & phone number for enquiries are below:
