Hot Wheels Lancia Stratos

The Lancia Stratos HF (Tipo 829), widely and more simply known as Lancia Stratos, is a sports car and rally car made by Italian car manufacturer Lancia. The HF stands for High Fidelity. It was a very successful rally car, winning the World Rally Championship in 1974, 1975 and 1976.

A Bertone-designed concept car called the Lancia Stratos Zero was shown to the public in 1970, but shares little but the name and mid-engined layout with the Stratos HF version.

This has always been a smart little model and this 2015 colour scheme does the car justice, except for that stupid HW logo splashed against the sides.

I would really like to see this one in full Alitalia livery- I think that would make an ultimate casting with those standard 5SP wheels.

If you are a fan of 70s stuff, this one should be on your shopping list, without doubt. Take it to another level my MOC’ing it with a new paint job – cannot go wrong.
