The 037 Stradale was made to homologate its rally version into the radical Group B WRC class. Thus, it featured all the hallmarks of a no-compromise race car, but with regard to passenger car regulations.
Development of the 037 was trusted to Abarth who had the challenge of following the mighty Lancia Stratos. The new car was similar to an earlier design called the Beta Monte Carlo with its central tub and large steel space frames fore and aft. Abarth opted out and instead relied on a single rear ZF differential.
Almost every aspect of the 037 was business with large Brembro Brakes, double wishbone suspension, two 35-litre tanks, ZF five-speed gearbox, an Abarth-supercharged engine and easy access for repairs. Although only offering 205 bhp in road trim, the car had a low weight, and took full advantage of the availble power.
Pininfarina created the striking body and helped develop its overall shape and aerodynamics. Executed in fibre-glass reinforced by Kevlar, the light body contributed to an overall weight of 2579 lbs (1169 kgs).
With this low weight, and not losing as much power as on a 4WD system, the 037 could reach 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds! One can only imagine how fast the competition version would go with its 440 lb (200 kgs) weight reduction and additional 80 bhp..
Compared to the competition machines, the Stradale was slightly detuned with a lower compression ratio and featured a spartan, but complete interior with minimal soundproofing.
Only 207 copies of the Stradale were built, and after homologation was granted many were converted to full-on competition cars. All the Stradales were painted in Red and some came with a matte black rear wing, while others came with no wing at all to increase rearward visibility.
All exterior, visible mechanical parts, engine and interiors have been carefully modeled on real reference pictures.
