Seventies Sensation

Lego Technic Lancia Stratos

This is one of the greatest rally cars ever made. It won the World Rally Championship in 1974, ’75 and ’76 – dominating the sport before the arrival of all-wheel-drive – and it featured an engine built by Ferrari. It is of course the bewitching Lancia Stratos.

Fewer than 500 original Stratos’ were built, and rumour has it that the first was built by the legendary coach-builder Bertone using a friend’s Lancia Fulvia as a base, in which he simply turned up at the Lancia factory one day to rapturous applause.

This lovely remote controlled Technic version of the Stratos was designed and built by TLCB favourite Piterx. It looks the business, which of course all Lancias should*, but the real question is can it rally? Watch the video below to find out!

*Apart from the modern ones it seems, which are either amongst the ugliest cars ever conceived, or are Chryslers with Lancia badges stuck on. Come on Fiat, you know you can do better.
