Lancia Stratos Zero Restomod Independent Study Brings Sexy Back To The Italian Brand

This story includes an independent design study from Matteo Gentile that is neither related to nor endorsed by Lancia.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Lancia is a shell of its former self. It has a long and illustrious history in motorsport and has built iconic models like the 037, Flaminia, Fulvia, Stratos, and Delta Integrale. The only thing it currently builds, though, is the Ypsilon, a supermini that’s been on sale in third-generation guise for 11 years.

Despite the sad state of affairs that Lancia is currently in, that hasn’t stopped skilled design Matteo Gentile from imagining what a new halo model from the automaker could look like. Dubbed the Stratos Zero Restomod, it is certainly striking.

The Lancia Stratos Zero Restomod takes the shape of a low-slung, mid-engined supercar that is finished in a deep shade of purple and unique green color. Found at the front of the concept is a pronounced LED light bar, a carbon fiber splitter, and carbon fiber air intake shrouds. The car also has a carbon fiber hood with large vents to aid in aerodynamics.

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the vehicle’s design are the shape of the doors and how they intersect with the roof, giving the car a unique and muscular profile. The concept also sits on complex carbon fiber wheels complete with gold center locks.

The rear of the Stratos Zero Restomod is just as striking as the front and includes thin LED taillights and a pronounced carbon fiber grille. It also has four centrally-exiting tailpipes and a carbon fiber diffuser to help stick the massive rear tires to the pavement, as well as an engine cover with prominent louvers.

While we don’t expect Lancia to ever create a vehicle like this, the brand is planning three new models as it looks to prove to Stellantis that it is worth keeping.
