Going to the Nürburgring with a Porsche or Mercedes-Benz AMG isn’t that special, but with a Lancia Stratos HF? Surely yes! Dave-Jan-Autogespot captured this unique car, which gets more exclusive with the year. Is this car competitive on the Nordschleife?
With 190 bhp you’re surely not one of the quickest guys around. From zero to hundred kilometers per hour takes 7.1 seconds and the topspeed of 230 kilometers per hour is a number which can be beaten by every powerful hatchback nowadays. But thanks to the low weight and the short wheelbase you can throw this car through corners like no other car can do. The four wheels are placed on the edges of the car, combine that with an aerodynamical design and you will have a real go-kart! Of course it wasn’t without a reason that this Lancia ruled the Group 4-rallies back in the seventies. It has to be a very special moment as there are just about 200 copies ever built!
