The New Stratos project is the brainchild of German car components magnate Michael Stoschek, who rallies an original Stratos. The Ferrari powered New Stratos was launched to the press at Paul Ricard. Amalgam have created a superbly detailed model of the New Stratos at 1:8 scale finished in ‘visible carbon’ with a tinted lacquer.
Michael Stoschek is a collector and driver of historic racing cars as well as a leading player and entrepreneur in the automotive supply industry. For Stoschek, the development and construction of a modern version of the Stratos represents the fulfillment of a long-held dream.
Construction of the car began in 2008, at Pininfarina in Turin, Italy. The contemporary New Stratos is a special project by Michael Stoschek and his son Maximilian Stoschek. Together they played a fundamental role in determining the technical concept and design of the one-off vehicle.
A keen sportsman, Stoschek won the Carrera Panamericana in 1999, 2001 and 2004, and the 2006 FIA European Rallye Championship, driving a 1971 Porsche 911 in both races. The Lancia Stratos Group 4 has a special place amongst the historic rally cars that Stoschek employs for rallies and hillclimbing.
We are proud to announce that Michael Stoschek, Chairman of the Brose Group has recently become a partner in Amalgam Fine Model Cars. The world leading technology of Brose and the wealth of experience and expertise of Mr. Stoschek and his team will make a hugely significant contribution towards the ongoing growth and development of Amalgam Fine Model Cars Ltd.
