The Stratos // The Ultimate Flight of Fancy

The ultimate flight of fancy. Passion and financial capability creating the ability to produce one man’s ultimate dream.

We have all heard, seen and read about the new Stratos, based on a Ferrari F430 and created/funded by Billionaire Michael Stoschek. Michael is a collector and driver of historic racing cars as well as a successful entrepreneur in the automotive supply industry. For Stoschek, the development and construction of a modern version of the Stratos represents the fulfillment of a long-held dream. Not to mention the dreams of thousands of men and women alike!

Construction of the car has been underway since autumn 2008, at Pininfarina in Turin, Italy. The contemporary New Stratos is a non-commercial project by Michael Stoschek and his son Maximilian Stoschek. Together they played a fundamental role in determining the technical concept and design of the one-off vehicle. As a brief look into that creation enjoy this little video of the car in the wind tunnel at Pininfarina.

If you click on you will also get to see the car in action during some shake down runs with Ex F1 driver and WTCC driver Tiago Monteiro, at Balocco, Italy.
