Lancia

The Stratos was a very successful rally car during the 1970s and early 1980s. It started a new era in rallying as it was the first car designed from scratch for this kind of competition. The three leading men behind the entire rallying project were Lancia team manager Cesare Fiorio, British racer/engineer Mike Parkes and factory rally driver Sandro Munari with Bertone's Designer Marcello Gandini taking a very personal interest in designing and productionising the bodywork. Lancia did extensive testing with the Stratos and raced the car in several racing events where Group 5 prototypes were allowed during the 1972 and 1973 seasons. Production of the 500 cars required for homologation in Group 4 commenced in 1973 and the Stratos was homologated for the 1974 World Rally Championship season.Powered by the Dino 2.4 L V6 engine that was also fitted to the rallying versions, it resulted in a power output of 190 PS (140 kW), giving the road car a 0- 100 km/h time of 6.8 seconds, and a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph).The car was sold as the Lancia Stratos HF Stradale.

Hawk Cars

Less familiar to some, this futuristic-looking Hawk HF series kit car is based on a famous design of sports car that was used in motorsport in the seventies. The uncompromising two-seater, mid-engined layout gives excellent handling and the competition-bred design of this kit gives the driver an almost unique motoring experience. These cars have had the highest acclamation from all sections of the motoring press for not only their quality and visual accuracy but also for their excellent balance and handling characteristics. These features combine to make ownership of what is undeniably an aesthetically beautiful body form, also a great delight to drive. Authentic interior. Brilliant handling. Superb engineering quality. Great performance.

Listerbell Automotive

ListerBell we have both drawn on our own experience and listened carefully to many kit car builders about the headaches experienced when assembling their projects. With the STR, we have addressed these issues during the manufacturing stage, making the car far easier to put together for the novice builder. The chassis and suspension have been CAD designed to create a product that is not only authentic to the educated eye, but also features an array of modern components. A considerable amount of time and effort has been invested into the moulds used to produce the cars bodywork. The body work stage has always been one of the stumbling blocks for Stratos replica builders and every effort has been made to produce the ListerBell body to a standard which is acceptable in todays marketplace and is available in pre coloured gel coat panels which do not require painting.

The Lancia Stratos HF broke new ground because it was the first car to be designed specifically with rally competition in mind. It was built around a steel monocoque with tubular sub-frames and clad in glassfibre body panels, and weighed less than a tonne. It also had extremely compact dimensions, at just 3708mm long, 1727mm wide and with a 2184mm wheelbase.
