Lego builder Piterx makes gorgeously detailed Technic replicas of real-life vehicles. The latest is a motorsports legend: The Lancia Stratos, one of the most fearsomely beautiful cars to ever blast down a rally stage. And thanks to dual R/C motors, this Piterx model is as fast and drift-happy as its real-life brethren.
I'm going to appeal to your sense of decency today, Jalops. Most of you are kind, generous and giving people. That's why I'm asking you to give a certain car a good home.
Skydiver Felix Baumgartner just accomplished a feat that adds to Red Bull's ever growing arsenal of extreme sports accomplishments.
Our planet never seems more beautiful than from a distance. Extreme jumper Felix Baumgartner brought back this amazingly distant view — from 71,580 feet above the surface — before jumping out of his space capsule and hurtling home at 365 mph in his quest to hit supersonic speeds without an aircraft.
The revived Lancia Stratos engineered into reality by a German millionaire was expected to spawn 40 copies for wealthy fans of the resurrected rally champion. That plan has now been blocked by a key player — Ferrari.
The German mastermind behind the Ferrari-based revival of the Lancia Stratos hasn't kept his multimillion fetish locked in some hermetically sealed garage.
The mighty Lancia Stratos is a maniacal rally car, a performance icon, and now, a font you can download right here on Jalopnik.
It takes under two minutes to remind us why Lancia's rally efforts were so awesome and simultaneously stoke the flames of our burning desire to own a Stratos. Unfortunately, this footage is likely as close as we will ever get.
The Lancia Stratos HF Group 4 rally car is the most iconic woods-whipper in history, so it's fitting der neue Stratos would eventually get painted in Alitalia livery. Why would you order a New Stratos any other way?
The just-released specs for the New Stratos read like a "Dear Penthouse" letter; strangely ideal, impossibly athletic and therefore hard to believe. A 5 lb/hp power-to-weight ratio's just the beginning. We suggest you lock your bedroom door before reading on.
We anointed Pete Krehbiel the "Real Most Interesting Man In The World" after he managed to legally import a Ford Focus RS. Now an admittedly hungover Krebs emailed us details of his latest conquest: a basketcase Lancia Stratos replica.
Here's the first video showing off the new Pininfarina-penned Lancia Stratos doing laps on the track. If there's a better way to chase away a case of the Mondays we don't know what it is. (H/t to everyone!) [via Jalopnik.br]
