Rally legends of the '80s go under the hammer

A group of ultra-rare 1980s rally cars will be going to auction with no reserve. Fair enough, too, because the bidding is going to go bananas. Indeed, sharing World Rally Championships and multiple rally wins between the seven Group B cars, prices could blow out to millions...

Zero to boredom in less than three seconds: Where have all the scary cars gone?

Often when people fondly reminisce about 'the good old days', the truth is, they were never really that great. But in this instance, they bloody well were. Fast cars. I mean, really fast cars. Properly fast cars. They used to be called supercars. And guess what? They were properly scary. I’m not quite old enough to be losing my mind just yet, but I’m certainly old enough to remember them...

Video: Lancia Stratos driven by Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo

The one-off special produced by Fiat and its subsidiaries has been finalised. In the risk of missing out on what all the fuss is about, Ferrari boss, Luca di Montezemolo, recently stopped by Ferrari's own Fiorano-based test track to take the Lancia Stratos for a spin. Also along for the ride was the German industrialist, Michael Stoschek, the lucky guy who funded the project and owner of the car...

Video: 2010 Lancia Stratos driven by Michael Stoschek

Even though this video is in German, it's the first piece of footage we've seen of the extremely rare, one-off Lancia Stratos driven on a track. The bodywork and panels are made completely of carbon fibre. The engine, as suspected, is a Ferrari 430 Challenge Stradale 4.3-litre V8 with matching driveline...

Lancia Stratos images and details emerge

As previous reports predicted, this one-off Lancia Stratos is powered by a Ferrari 4.3-litre V8 borrowed from the Ferrari F430. The chassis and platform of the new Stratos is also taken from the Ferrari F430. Last week we posted some images of the car in, what looked to be, full-trim guise. There were however certain indicative signs that the images were created digitally...

Caught testing in late June, the Stratos is believed to use a Ferrari 430 chassis layout that has been modified and shortened according to traditional Stratos proportions...
