Pictures of a new version of the Lancia Stratos were spied from a car buff, who was able to sneak a few shots when the car was being test-driven on an Alfa Romeo test track. A couple of new photos of the same car have emerged, and also news of it being a single piece recreation of the Stratos – brought forth by a joint project by Pininfarina and Fenomenon Holistic Design.

Rumor has it that the making of the vehicle has been funded by an immensely wealthy car aficionado who has commissioned this singular unit for his own absolutely unique driving pleasure.

The model brings to mind the Fenomenon Stratos Concept that was first shown at the 2005 Geneva Auto Show – which comprised of an aluminum chassis and body components made of carbon fiber. The one-off model has underpinnings from a Ferrari F430 Scuderia, and the pictures suggest that the wheelbase may have been shortened to maintain the Stratos’ exceptional road agility.
