Hrabalek, who owns an amazing nine Stratoses (at one point it was a faintly ludicrous 14, and he still has a Safari spec rally car and a loony 560bhp turbocharged Group 5 car among others), created and exhibited a modern reinterpretation at the 2005 Geneva show. "I'd known Michael for years," he says. "I met him when I was a kid at a Stratos rally back in 1986. I hassled him for eight years to do this car. I stalked him. I literally popped out of bushes."
