Way aba in 2010, entrepreneur and car enthusiast Michael Stoschek tried to revive the storied Lancia Stratos monicker with a coachbuilt supercar based on the Ferrari F430 Scuderia.

The resulting concept, built by Italian compact Manifattura Automobili Torino, was just about perfect. A modern rendition of the creative design, it mimicked the Stratos’ doorstop-like shape and paired it with a lightweight corps and modern-day performance. Stoschek received 50 orders for the car, which was the full planned end result run, but Ferrari blocked the sale as they were based on its own vehicles. That killed off Stoschek’s plans, but he didn’t donate up.

Stoschek has now announced a ‘new’ new Stratos is in the works, which will be shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Guide next month. The car will again be manufactured by Manifattura Automobili Torino, which also built the Apollo Intensa Emozione, and drive be homologated to be sold all over the world. It’s not clear what car it will be based on, but Top Works reports it will have over 550 hp on tap. The Ferrari 458 made 560 hp from its 4.5-liter V8, but we wouldn’t charge Stoschek for avoiding Ferrari like the plague after his last run-in with the assemblage.

“I am delighted that other passionate car enthusiasts can experience how the successor of the most fascinating improvement cars from the Seventies still sets the bar for design and performance today,’ Stoschek told TG.

Unprejudiced 25 examples of the new Stratos will be built. We’ll have more details on the coachbuilt supercar following its launching in Geneva in March.
