The official unveiling of the New Stratos project is almost upon us. Already Autocar and Evo have filed initial drive reports. Below are a few of their thoughts, but make sure you follow the links at the end to get the full picture.
Autocar: “The nimble handling and eager speed make an immediate impact, but so does the structural integrity and hugely impressive, all-of-a-piece feel of this car which is completely free of rattles and creaks. Thatâ€™s some achievement in a one-off.”
Evo: “We got a handful of laps around Circuit Paul Ricard and it feels very much in the spirit of the original. Itâ€™s wide but short in the wheelbase which, combined with modest weight, makes it very agile. Itâ€™s surprisingly supple, too. It feels like it would take some bottle to drive flat-out at big speeds, or quickly in the wet, but thatâ€™s always been a part of the challenge of the Stratos and the systems are there for those who donâ€™t feel that confident.”
