    Nice Video, nice location. sounds good.

    Title could be slightly misleading and may lead to more resentment from the owners of original car as was witnessed in the aftermath of Trasmiera.

    Its the Cyclone V8 powered Hawk that has been around for quite a while now. See HERE for an early (much lower quality!) video from 2007.
    I first saw it at the Autosport show back around that time, I believe it has full carbon or Kevlar body work as well.

    Looks like this video is filmed in Auvergne Mountains...If my informations are correct, this car could be seen soon in Tour de corse or other historic events with a french registration ...To be continued!!

    Completely agree with Craig.... Why do some people have to call it a Lancia Stratos when it is not ?....whatever type of replica you have be proud and name it as such !

    Fully agreed...it’s a shame! And this fact is often done by dishonorable people to mistake others and make maximum profit in a sale as recently seen in several transactions ...particularly this side of the channel!!

    I think going forward, the right thing to do is remove any external Stratos badging and state on any entries, promotional stuff or media that it is a Hawk, Lister bell, Corse or any other earlier flavour.
    Over the last few years, there has been a softening of attitudes to the replica owners by original owners so no sense in spoiling it.

    Re: Green Strat

    Woulda thought you're OK with "Stratos" and "Bertone" badges, as that's the exact (??) shape of it, and which was, indeed, penned by the aforementioned Bert. As for Lancia badges, hmmm...well, there are enough lookalikes out there badged as such, and as long as you're honest if/when asked, I don't see the harm in that (some "reps" are better-built than the real thing, so you could argue they're actually doing Lancia a favour...). But to enter such a car into an event as a Lancia Stratos is very naughty, cos it most certainly isn't. If you're not actually going to call it what it really is (Lister Bell STR, Hawk HFwhatever, etc.) then you should say "Lancia Stratos replica", or "homage", or similar - suppose you could say that most people won't know what a LB or Hawk is, but they'll know about the Stratos, so you're giving them an idea of what they're coming to look at.

    Agree totally with Craig re. this video. Nice car, great video, very naughty boy.
