I woke up my stratos from hibernation today. Unfortunately, I could only drive it for 15-20 minutes as I needed to drop it off at a local shop for maintenance. Still, it only took a couple of minutes to be reminded what a great car it is. It's so nimble and immediate! My daily commute is 65-70 miles but after a few minutes in the stratos it felt as if I hadn't driven in months - such is the difference in driver involvement with my standard issue commuter BWM...

Same car that sold at Gooding earlier this year. I believe they have since sold it.

Stratos Zero in Michael Jackson's moonwalker. Etched into my memory as a kid. Along with the 20 exhaust tips dripping fuel. Drool....

I think the exhaust tips were added for the movie though

Marcel, you need somebody who can piece together a cars racing history or person who can inspect a car and reliably identify if it's original/modified/fake?

Is there a chance you could post a picture or two?

65 mile commute in a Stratos is photo-worthy
