    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.

    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.

    Let me to put something in order.

    1970: Bertone introduced his Zero concept at the Turin motor show to demostrate his ability to the world. This car was keeped in the Bertone museum near Turin until last May, when it was auctioned by RM at Villa d'Este for about 993.000$.

    1971: Bertone introduced his Stratos HF, a prototype of a sport car, at the Turin motor show. This is the car exhibited at the 2008 Pebble Beach concours.

    The Stratos was a car built in 1972 to join in the Rallye world championship specifically, it was necessary a minimum of production to homologate the car for the races and this minimum was fixed in 1973 by the International Rallye Committee: 400 copies. In 1974 Cesare Fiorio, Lancia team manager, said the production stopped at about 500 copies. Probably 492 is the number of the bodies that Bertone produced, but many bodies were destroyed at the Lancia plant of Chivasso in 1980.

    Hi steve-not quite a full Resto, but almost-body and wheels repaint back to original color, interior back to original, all bits that were not original replaced with NOS, and then the entire wiring harness completely replaced by the geniuses over at Autoelite in new jersey-they're also going over the engine just to make sure everything is kosher, but it only has 18k on it, and is in really great condition

    ....not to plug Autoelite (but I will!), but those guys have been bloody fantastic-I honestly can't recommend a better Ferrari (and now lancia) mechanic...they've been as enthused as me to work on the car, and they really have a proper appreciation of the car and it's place in history (not to sound TOO full of hot air)

    I just wanted to bring the car back to its original state-it had been sitting in a museum in Germany for 25 years, so now it'll finally get some use...

    I must have confused it with Villa Este or another show in which I saw the Zero.

    Thanks for the correction.
