Lancia Stratos was a two-seater car with a compact body and mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The length of the car was 3710mm and the width around 1800mm, depending on the type of the rear cover. Wheelbase of the car was 2180mm. Lancia Stratos’ 2.4-litre V6 engine was borrowed from the Ferrari Dino. In the production model the engine produced 192 horsepower.
Lancia Dilambda was the biggest car ever made by Lancia. The production version was presented in 1928 at the Paris Motor Show after a preview at New York in 1927. The Lancia Dilambda was related to the Lancia Lambda model, but there were also some major differences.
Lancia Stratos prototype was presented at the 1971 Turin Motor Show. Its aggressive looking, muscular body was designed by Bertone. The two-seater car had compact body and the mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The length of the car was 3710mm, width 1750mm and the height 1114mm. Wheelbase of the car was just 2180mm to provide agile handling. Thanks to the fibreglass body, the car’s weight was just 980kg. The front and rear ends of the Stratos could be quickly removed for easy maintanance. The front section covered the radiator and the brake servo, while the rear section covered the engine. To create more downforce, Stratos had a big rear spoiler and additional hoop spoiler right behind the cabin.
Lancia Lambda was the most advanced car of its day and is still universally recognised to be Signor Lancia’s masterpiece. It was presented in 1922 at the Paris and London Motor Shows. It was the first car weighing less than one thousand kg able to accommodate no fewer than seven people. Lancia Lambda was manufactured in nine successive series between 1922 and 1931.
