Wow...I can't call it pretty, but something about this one is striking enough that I realy respect this car's looks. Daring! Everything a concept car should be.

Any info about the recreation? I assume it doesn't have the backwards chasis of the Fulvia...

75bhp, 1,489cc inline single overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine, five-speed manual transmission, McPherson strut front and rear suspension, servo-assisted four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 88" (2235mm)

The Lancia Stratos was one of the world’s most accomplished competition cars, securing the World Rally Championship from 1974 to 1976. As eye-catching as it was, the concept began with an even more astonishing design, the Stratos Zero, which was unveiled in 1970. Styled by Marcello Gandini for Bertone, it was a 33-inch tall, mid-engined extreme wedge shape with large air intakes on the sides and a windshield that lifted to allow access to the cabin. For the “production” Stratos, however, the Zero design was deemed too extreme.

While it would be the dream of many enthusiasts to own the Zero, it has remained in the Bertone collection since new. Andy Saunders long coveted the Zero, but like most, assumed he would never have the opportunity to own it – that is, until a friend told him of a replica offered for sale in Florida, which was the only one remaining of three film prop shells made for Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker.

The shells were made of fibreglass from molds taken from the actual Zero and were therefore 100 percent accurate. As film props, however, they had no running gear. Saunders rose to the task of bringing it to life, choosing a vandalized two-owner, 46,000-mile Fiat X 1/9 for its 88-inch wheelbase and mid-engined running gear. The Fiat chassis, however, demanded major modifications to the front suspension, removing eight inches from the struts and even shortening the gearshift lever. This extensive work also required, among other things, refinishing of the shell, sourcing of the lights, and the cutting out of the windshield entry hatch. Saunders painted his Zero a striking Lamborghini Mica Orange, quite close to the original’s metallic hue.

Andy’s Stratos Zero recreation was unveiled at the Intersections Design Exhibition in London’s trendy Brick Lane in February 2006. It has been featured together with the original Zero in both Classic Cars and Sportscars International magazines, where they proved to be almost indistinguishable. What’s more, it was featured on ITV’s Flog It program, where Saunders was chosen as Design Guru of the 1950s – 1970s.

It goes without saying that as an Andy Saunders work, this car is fully driveable. In many ways, it is the ultimate iteration of seventies design and an impressively accurate recreation of the original.
