Most drives in cars are just that: drives, in cars. But every now and then, a drive is more than just a drive. It's a deeply transformative experience.

That's how I imagine this drive went, because it was in a Lancia Stratos HF, one of the greatest and most extreme race cars and road cars of all time.

This video comes to us from our pal Marchettino, who's no stranger to hanging out in exotic cars, but even this must have been special for him.

I jump onboard the Lancia Stratos HF for a fun drive on winding roads. I also drove the car and I have to say it was a truly amazing experience as the Stratos is my favourite rally car, the sound coming from the V6 Ferrari engine was sublime!

Now I have something to dream about when I go to sleep at night.
