Are we talking the 'zero' prototipo, the road version, rally version, or the new prototipo?

Zero: 1

The rest, very few examples existent.

I believe they are even less built as the factory roof collapsed destroying a lot of built cars that no one wanted at the time! I think this is mentioned in several books.

Does anyone know how to contact the fellow that restored the "zero" prototipo? I'd like to ask about the paint formulation that was used when the car was restored.

The man who made the replica of the Stratos Zero is Andy Saunders. He can be reached through his website at www.andysaunderskustoms.com

According to the feature article about the car in Thoroughbred & Classic Cars (August 2006), the paint used was Lamborghini "Mica Orange", applied by a local painter.

The one shown in Pebble Beach a few years ago was a replica?????? Boy I'm confused, it was represented as the original prototype (!?) Are we talking about the same car?

Anyway, I'm after the color, so thanks for the contact info.

The Zero at Pebble was not a repro.

It was the real deal.

Not to mention all the cars that were shunted over the years...I wonder how many there really are? I have a 75 blue stradale that is ALMOST out of restoration....just in time for winter...

From what I've read no one seems to have a reliable number for the Stradale car production totals.

Still one of my 'hope to own' cars, but I've only seen a couple for sale in the US.

Phil,

Jog my memory, please.

Did you do a full resto on this car?

I seem to recall pics of your car going through the stages of a full resto.....maybe I am mistaken.

The Stratos Prototype shown at Pebble beach (2008) was the Lancia Stratos HF Prototype not the 'Stratos Zero Prototype'. While the later was the Lancia Stratos showcar (based on the Lancia Fulvia), the 'Stratos HF Prototype' was a 'clean sheet' design (resembling the later production cars). The 'Stratos HF Prototype' major differences to the later production car: full aluminium body (instead of fibreglass), rear wishbone suspension (instead of MacPherson), and 206 Dino engine (instead of 246 Dino engine). The colour of the 'Stratos HF Prototype' is matt fluorescent orange, colour code RAL2005. Best, Hrabi.
