Short, back and slides: the New Stratos

Paolo Garella, the project manager on the New Stratos, describes this as being "the apex of the one-off car". I think he's right. When TopGear ran a cover story on James Glickenhaus's reimagined Ferrari P4/5 back in 2006, we didn't realise it signalled the start of such a significant trend. Grew up worshipping a particular car and now find yourself with enough bunce in the bank to create a wholly modern reincarnation? Anything, it seems, is possible. Just don't indulge your Morris Marina fetish.
