The legendary Lancia Stratos HF was without a doubt the most spectacular and successful rallye car of the 70s. 

Lancia presented the Bertone-designed Lancia Stratos HF prototype at the 1971 Turin Motor Show, a year after the announcement of the Stratos Zero concept car.  A production of 500 cars was started in 1973 with Dino V6 engine from Ferrari and the Stratos got the homologation to participate to the World Rally Championship season in 1974. Lancia Stratos won three times in a raw the World Rally Championship in 1974, 1975 and 1976. A golden era for this legendary car. 

It started in fact a new era in rallying as it was the first car designed from scratch for this kind of competition. With its thrilling lines and uncompromising design for rallye use, the Stratos won a permanent place in the hearts of its worldwide fans with its outstanding performance.

The Stratos made its place in the history books of motor-racing in the greatest way possible. It will be remembered because it is a supreme example of what is achievable with perseverance, skill and a lot of courage.
— Cesare Fioro
 

Behind the engine, behind the design, there is a lot of passion and perseverance that has been animated by extraordinary men who share the legendary destiny of the Stratos. Lancia team manager Cesare Fiorio, British racer/engineer Mike Parkes, factory rally driver Sandro Munari with Bertone's Designer Marcello Gandini and engineer and driver Claudio Maglioli are some of them. Zenith El Primero World Stratos Meeting will be also the opportunity to celebrate those who dreamed, lived and did the Stratos.
