New engineering details emerge about the Pininfarina Lancia Stratos Supercar

Just a few months ago, the German businessman Michael Stoschek was shaking the automotive industry by commissioning Pininfarina in order to successfully build an one-off successor to the already famous and legendary Lancia Stratos HF, originated by the Ferrari F430 Scuderia. Now, we are bringing you new technical data which you were expecting, namely the engineers who developed this project modified and customized all the components of the F430 Scuderia beginning with the chassis, which received a 20 cm shortening and an FIA-certified roll cage. These were followed by the increasing of the structural rigidity and the shift of the center of gravity towards the front of the car, thus obtaining better handling. The new Stratos appears to be 80 kg lighter than the donor car in spite of the 55 kg added cage and 28 kg air conditioning unit also added. As in most of the professional racing cars, the dampers are adjustable from the steering wheel and come with electronic calibration. The modification of the springs also took place with the best specialists working out the optimum camber and toe values. Using high performance Brembo ceramic brakes, the car will ride on 19-inch wheels, shod in Dunlop Sport Maxx tires. Aluminum and carbon fiber materials come to complete the interior, with a steering wheel inspired from the race cars with paddle shifters attached to it, thus providing the ability to control the six-speed transmission in less than 60 milliseconds. Unfortunately, details concerning the engine have not been presented yet, but we can suppose that the peak power is to be higher than the stock F430 Scuderia’s 510HP due to 4.3-liter V8 which received a new exhaust system and control unit. We will provide more details regarding this project so stay tuned.
