On the eve of the Amelia Island Concours and RM Auctions sale, here is one we cannot resist sharing.
A.) It is a STRATOS.
B.) It is the high-performance Stratos HF
C. It is a delicious lime green that is sweet on the eyes, and tart on the tongue
D. All of the above.
RM Auctions will sell this stellar piece of automotive brilliance at the Lake Como Concours in Italy on May 23rd.
As a special bonus, here is the outrageous STRATOS typeface for use on your computer. Not super practical or legible, but gorgeous and unique — just like this rally hero supercar.
Hat tip to Jalopnik.
