Dallara’s Stradale Sports Car Shown In Various Configurations 20
Posted by Brad Anderson in Dallara, new cars, Reports on 11 20th, 2017

A couple of days after the first images of the long-awaited Dallara Stradale emerged, the famed chassis builder has released a slew of new pictures of the car, revealing the various configurations it’ll be available in.

The entry-level Stradale will be a two-seat Roadster with no windscreen, reminiscent of the Elemental RP1. If customers want a little extra practicality, they’ll be able to option a curvaceous windscreen.

From there, Dallara will sell the Stradale as a T-top and as a hardtop, depending on what the customer wants. Gullwing doors come standard in both of these roof configurations.

For customers looking for the ultimate in track performance, a towering carbon fiber rear wing will be available on all versions.

As we mentioned last week, the Stradale is powered by a 2.3-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine delivering 400 PS, mated to either a six-speed manual or an optional paddle-shift transmission.


Dallara Stradale Packs 400 HP And Weighs Just 1,885 Pounds 16

Renowned chassis builder Dallara has taken the wraps off its new Stradale.

Designed to help people “rediscover the pleasure of driving,” the Stradale is an extremely lightweight sports car which weighs just 855 kg (1,885 lbs). In order to keep the car’s weight in check, Dallara made the monocoque chassis and body panels out of carbon fiber composites.

The standard model is a stylish two-seat roadster which features a front splitter, recessed headlights, and a dual exhaust system. A number of different options will be available including a windshield and gull-wing doors that transform the vehicle into a coupe.

Customers looking to use the car mainly on the track will want to order the Stradale’s optional rear wing. It helps the car to produce an impressive amount of downforce that is among the “highest in GT road vehicles.”

Power is provided by a supercharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 400 PS (294 kW). It can be connected to either a six-speed manual or an optional paddle-shift transmission. Dallara declined to say how fast the car is but the combination of lightweight design and a powerful engine should ensure it is pretty quick.
