Scalextric 60th Anniversary Collection: 1970s Lacia Stratos HF by Scalextric (1:32 scale)

To celebrate their 60th Anniversary, Scalextric is releasing a limited edition car ever month from May to November 2017. This 1:32 scale Lancia Stratos is one of them and limited to just 2000 examples.

Scalextric was unveiled at the Harrogate Toy Fair in 1957 and they haven’t looked back since.  They proved to be so popular that at one point, Scalextric was making over 7,000 cars a week!  For the feel of real racing on a much smaller and more affordable scale, you can’t go wrong with Scalextric.



One car not covered by Scalextric in the 1970s, but a poster child of the decade, was the Lancia Stratos HF, widely and more simply known as the Lancia Stratos. The HF stands for High Fidelity and the car proved to be a very successful machine, winning the World Rally Championship in 1974, 1975 and 1976. Overall it took 18 WRC victories between 1974 and 1981 with Sandro Munari taking 7 of them. Other notable winners in the Stratos are Björn Waldegård, Bernard DarNiche and Markku Alén. The wedge shape of the Stratos is classic 1970s, with its mid-mounted Ferrari sourced V6 giving the car a large amount of power to put through its short chassis, which also gave the Stratos some nimble handling as well.
