New Stratos Attracts 40 Buyers, Could Cost $545,000

In September 2008, German businessman Michael Stoschek and his son Maximilian commissioned Pininfarina to build a one-off Stratos vehicle, the technical concept and design of which were largely determined by the two car enthusiasts. The finalized project was unveiled in mid-2010, when the initiators of the New Stratos stated that whether or not an exclusive, limited run will be manufactured, depends upon demand.

Now, the latest reports on the New Stratos website indicate that around 40 potential buyers have already expressed their desire of buying one.

“As reports on the New Stratos presentation will not appear until late January/early February in many international magazines – particularly non-European ones – the total number of individuals interested in purchasing the car will not be determinable for a few more weeks. Thus far, there have been roughly 40 individuals, from both Europe and overseas, who have registered their interest on our website,”
the article written on the special dedicated website reads.

Now, despite the fact that the original cost of development of the New Stratos is rumored to be around €3 million (about $4 million), but Stotschek believes it can sell the supercar for somewhere around €400,000 or some $545,000 at the current exchange rate.

“Several other companies in addition to Pininfarina have offered to manufacture the limited run. As a result, costs for further vehicles should be somewhat reduced: we currently calculate the cost of the donor vehicle – a mint condition Ferrari F430 – at around €100,000, with the anticipated cost of conversion at around €300,000. Our goal is to deliver top quality vehicles at as reasonable a price as possible. Naturally, we’d be delighted if more New Stratos were built,”
the article concludes.
