Mystery Car XIII


This beast won Rally Car races in 1974, 1975, and 1976. But the production car didn't sell well for some reason. Some cars even sat in the show rooms untouched until as late as 1980! This may have been due to the claustrophobic interior. But, of course, you know all about this car already, right?

If memory (and my ability to Google) serves, this is a Lancia Stratos. I've always been fond of Lancias since, like Saabs, they are unique cars with their own philosophy.

I didn't find this exact model or picture during my search, so it's possible that it's a variant with another name or the same coachwork from a related manufacturer (Fiat?).

Good guess! It is a Lancia Stratos. Can you guess any of the others?
