Michael Stoschek, who has presided over the car's rebirth, was equally fascinated. "I read an article in a German newspaper some time in the late Seventies," he tells me, "and the writer was testing a Stratos, one with yellow rims. I thought, I want to own this car. I was always interested in cars, and when I was 15, I always looked for a girl who had a car. It didn't matter if she was ugly, as long as she had a car. But with the Stratos, I was just fascinated by its styling and engineering."
