    Ultimate replica

    Gerry Hawkridge / Hawk Cars are now well on the way to finishing the first ultimate replica Stratos (Stratii/Stratos's)

    All steel shells, and utilising dimensionally correct componentry including all the suspension driveshafts, steering rack, and even the correct wiper motor and linkage.

    I have the attached photos from Gerry, and he is quite happy for me to post them here. Having been dummy built, the first car has now been stripped and gone to the paint shop, with reassembly due shortly on it's return

    Impressive. I'm guessing they cost quite a lot......

    Congratulations to Gerry for getting this almost over the line. Always good to have yet another alternative! So there are now three options for those in the market for a Stratos replica, and interestingly none of them are in competition for the same type of buyer. Can't see this one being a budget option though

    There's only one engine option available for this one. Can't wait to see more progress with this car in the months to come.

    Lets hope our man in Nuneaton doesn't get hold of one!

    plus radiators, radiator fans and shrouds, horns, fuel tanks, wiring/fuseboxes, mirrors - and that's just the start of the list of correct components!

    I can't fail to be impressed, but if the only engine option is a Dino, then there are not going to be a lot of these around are there?

    There's a workaround using a Fiat Dino on a 308 transmission. But ideally you need a D block Dino motor. Probably more out there than you'd think but none of them will be cheap.

    If I had a 246 Dino I'd be massively upping security around the garage and keeping the V5 in a safety deposit box....
