Original Bertone drawing of the 1971 Lancia Stratos. It is a rare factory copy of the master technical blueprint made in the ’70s by Bertone.
Lancia traditionally used the design house Pininfarina but Bertone was looking to create an opportunity for a relationship with Lancia and knew that they were looking for a replacement for the ageing Fulvia for use in rally sports. Bertone decided to design an eye-catching model to impress Lancia. When Bertone himself appeared at the Lancia factory gates with the Stratos Zero, he passed underneath the main entrance barrier and received great applause from the Lancia workers. After that, Lancia and Bertone agreed to develop a new rally car based on the ideas of Bertone's designer Marcello Gandini. Gandini had already designed the Lamborghini Miura and was working on the Countach at the time. With 492 Stratos homologation specials produced by 1974, the car could qualify for the 1974 World Rally Championship season. The Stratos proved hugely successful and went on to win the World Rally Championship in 1974, 1975, and 1976.
The blueprint originates from a long-term ex-Bertone and Alfa Romeo employee who kept these pieces in his private collection.
The blueprint is accompanied by our EVC certificate to provide proof of authenticity.
125 x 43 cm
The drawing is printed on semi-transparent yellowish acetate tracing paper. It is a nonflammable mildew-proof material that was used in factory workshops.
