Ciao everyone, here it's Marchettino and today. We go for a ride with a modern legend! The word Stratos invokes immediately memories, emotions, rally victories, it's. A car that's not forgotten even though it's more than 40 years old, still very appreciated and probably many of us have always. Loved to see in a modern shape. Well no sooner said than done, because in 2010 german collector Michael Stoschek hit his target by asking Pininfarina the producion of a one-off based off a Ferrari. Since the beginning it was much appreciated by enthusiasts and collectors to the point that Stoschek tried to commission a small production of. New Stratos he failed, he had no support so for all this years it remained a one-off 'till today because carmaker Manifattura Automobili Torino - thanks to Michael Stoschek's support - managed to hit the target, to. Produce a small production of the New Stratos, 25 units. And just like Stoschek's Stratos, the base to create this modern masterpiece is the Ferrari F430 or 430 Scuderia. A few years ago I had the honour, the privilege to drive a old Stratos and for me it's a privilege to drive today the New Stratos because just like. The old one, also the new one since the beginning delivers emotions, strong sensations behind the wheel! Especially because this car is based off one of my fav cars, the Ferrari F430! LISTEN TO THAT! In terms of sensations and emotions, it reminds me very much the old Stratos. It's rough,. Spartan! Basically there's no sound proofing material, but it's right so! To produce the company Prototype #0, an F430 has been sacrificed and the transformation is radical. The biggest transformation is related to the chassis because the car has been completely dismantled and the chassis shortened a whopping 20cm and. The results benefit very handling, grip and agility very much! I feel the car is small, agile, rapid! It has hell of tires, Michelin CUP2, fabulous! What I like is that this car is a whopping 100kg lighter than. A 430 Scuderia so you may imagine it's quite agile! Just like the original Stratos, the rear visibility basically is ZERO! I felt so engaged we reached the top immediately! It's amazing! All the electronical and mechanical components have been modified and fit for this car, just think about the engine. A 4.3L N/A V8 capable to produce up to 530-540hp depending on the conditions of the donor car you use because obviously the F430 or 430 Scuderia have already miles on and depending on the conditions may deliver more or less power. While driving. A car like this around these. Roads, it's hard not to impersonate a rally driver! What are missing are those crazy rally enthusiasts at the side of the road that cheer for you, a navigator that read the pacenotes and then I'm ready. For the rally stage! Do I have the permission to turn. The electronics off and impersonate Munari? Uhm, to be honest I don't know! - Ok, sounds like a NOPE to me! I think it's better so, also because it's a exclusive, handmade product and the cost to convert your F430 or Scuderia into a New. Stratos is about 550k € + VAT + Ferrari donor car! So I'm thinking twice before to drift through an hairpin! And just like on the 430,. Also here on the steering wheel we find the Manettino which allows to change settings, of course I'm not. Turning the electronics off but I can switch to Race to have a more responsive throttle and gearbox. I love this gearbox, I'm not a fan of double clutch, I like the single clutch gearbox that make you feel the kick on gear changes, it makes you feel you're changing gear! Undoubtedly, it's a car thar conveys lots of emotions. And in a world where all manufacturers tend to make cars even more filled with electronics, with smaller turbocharged engines, well this is a car that in the current market stands out! Manifattura Automobili Torino is a small. Reality just outside Turin but it's a company with already a great curriculum because production aside of this car - if you didn't realize it, I fell in love with it! The company is also responsible for the production of the first two units of Apollo Intensa Emozione and racecars of. The Scuderia Glickenhaus and behind this company there's a great mind, the engineer Paolo Garella, formerly head of Pininfarina's special projects! This is a Right 2 tight! I have to admit, the biggest positive side of this car are the emotions and sensations it generates, because in a world where manufacturers focus. More on numbers and less on involvement, this is a car has a big merit to convey emotions and I. Think the average owner of this car want one for this reason. Because let's face it, final price the car would cost you about 700.000€ and with that money there are cars that generate incredible numbers and performance but this is a truly unique product that gives you a giant. Smile! The great thing of. The New Stratos is that it's completely customizable, in the company there's one with Alitalia livery that it's amazing, to say the least! If you bring a 6-speed manual F430 to the. Company, you can have a manual Stratos which is the coolest thing ever! If you use a F1 transmission donor car, you can even convert it to manual, spectacular! If you want I send you my Paypal, donations are well accepted! I almost. Forgot to show you, how awesome is the room left in the doors to store the race helmet?! Just like in. The original Stratos! When you set the ambitious goal to reinterpretate a modern version. Of a car that has been so. Important in the automotive industry, it's not simple and I think Manifattura Automobili Torino has created a fabulous product! And I hope those lucky who will buy one will cover lots of miles, just. Like Stoschek did since the beginning with his one-off! I feel honoured and privileged to drive on this amazing road, also because I'm one of the very first to have this incredible opportunity to drive this car so thanks M.A.T! The place is simply breathtaking, look at the lines of the car! I've always loved the. Shape of the Stratos and this modern reinterpretation is a masterpiece, it looks like. A UFO.. beautiful! Today's test is. Priceless and today let's go to the company because I wanna show it to you and engineer Paolo Garella will explain us more about the construction of the car. I'm Paolo Garella, CEO & founder of M.A.T, Manifattura Automobili Torino.. I created this company in 2014 on James Glickenhaus' will,. The company has been founded to develop a brand new car, the SCG003 that is born through our passion for racing. In the following years we have done more projects, one of them is the Apollo I.E (Intensa Emozione) by producing 2 units, an absolutely extreme car in terms of design, then we joined more projects like. The Devel Sixteen a car with 5000hp, we did some work to understand the problems to resolve when you want to produce a car with 5000hp and a. Top speed of 560kph. Our latest project is the Stratos, it's a one-off I developed as head of Pininfarina's special projects for Michael Stoschek. Last year I asked Michael the possibility to build 25 units of the car I developed for him, A car that wasn't really a one-off, I think that among all the cars built at Pininfarina, that was the. Closest one-off to a production car. The level of engineering and details allowed a small run of production. We already built 4 units, the base is a Ferrari 430 that gets heavily modified on the chassis, suspensions, all the body rebuilt in carbon fibre, the final product is about 100kg. Lighter than the donor car and the main feature of the car is the agility, Nowadays new supercars revolve. Around aerodynamics, engine. Power - way above 1000hp these days - we decided to keep reasonable power, to work on the torque and on the mechanical grip by. Using Michelin tires extremely good in terms of grip on the road so the mix of car we developed is absolutely unique, the short size, the size ratio is absolutely unique for such kind of supercar combined with this kind of power and quality of. The suspensions. We use Bilstein suspension, there's a great variety of options for the customers the final package is absolutely unique and offers to the customers the possibility to choose several optionns like the LSD, gearbox and suspensions setup. The process of modification takes 2 to 3 months in this moment we're starting about a car per month. What. To say, here ends. My fabulous day with M.A.T and their incredible creation, thanks everyone for the kindness and factory tour!
