    Have to assume he’s driven at least a few and didn’t like them I’d think. Given his collection, I can’t imagine his first port of call for anything that took his fancy would have been a replica.

    Fantastic compliment to LB in the light of what's in those garages.
    And to the standard of build too.
    There are probably better cars out there or about to be now too?
    I do wonder if the real Stratos ever deserved the reputation it had?
    Sure it was a different concept and designed to be so, but might it not be the case that because of its rarity no-one really had that much experience with them, and perhaps cars set up for professional drivers got the better of lesser testers?

    I should clarify, given how these topics have a habit of ‘expanding’, I’m not trying to imply that one is better than the other in any absolute fashion. They are different things.

    A person can prefer one or the other and both are right, given it's a personal choice.

    If people on here aren't moved by old Italian (rally) cars, I'm on the wrong forum.

    Amen to that ( both) Chris's.
    It illustrates quite well, that the search for the ultimate replica ( see other threads...) can be right for some but not for others.
    Personal choice.
    But this guy could have bought an actual original car. And chose not to.

    Re: LB Stratos on Late Brake Show

    I suppose he can live with the Miura's inflammatory tendencies because he's installed a special system to combat them. An inbuilt handling flaw (or advantage - depends if your name is Munari or Waldegaard or not) is probably more difficult to overcome. I've not enough experience of original cars so I don't know if the supposed twitchiness can be dialled out.
    Funnily enough, it used to be that I'd have worked a modicum of overtime to own a genuine car. But these last 10 or 15 years, not so much...sure they're great, but they're also old tech and you can do better, which is why I went for an LB. Also why I really like restomods. So I "get" why he didn't want the Real McCoy, but I also get why for some only the genuine article is acceptable. Good job we're inclusive on here innit!
