The Lancia Stratos Turbo is a legendary sports car that was developed for rallying in the 1970s.

It is a variant of the iconic Lancia Stratos, which was already known for its distinctive wedge-shaped design and exceptional performance.

The Stratos Turbo was specifically built to compete in the World Rally Championship and featured several modifications over the standard Stratos model.

One of the most notable changes was the addition of a turbocharger to the engine, which significantly increased power output and torque.

The Stratos Turbo boasted a mid-mounted V6 engine, often sourced from Ferrari, which delivered impressive performance on both tarmac and gravel surfaces.

Its lightweight construction and aerodynamic shape, combined with the turbocharged powerplant, allowed it to accelerate rapidly and achieve high speeds.

In terms of appearance, the Stratos Turbo retained the aggressive and futuristic design cues of the original Stratos, including its distinctive wraparound windshield and wide wheel arches.

However, it also featured unique visual elements, such as enlarged air intakes, a rear spoiler, and aerodynamic enhancements to optimize its performance on rally stages.

The Lancia Stratos Turbo achieved significant success in the World Rally Championship, securing multiple victories and becoming an icon of rally racing.

Its agility, power, and exceptional handling made it a force to be reckoned with on the rally circuit.

Today, the Lancia Stratos Turbo remains highly sought after by automotive enthusiasts and collectors due to its rarity and motorsport heritage.

It continues to be revered as one of the most successful and iconic rally cars of all time, representing the pinnacle of Lancia’s rallying prowess in the 1970s.
