The New Stratos will be under the lights of Geneva with MANIFATTURA AUTOMOBILI TORINO: MAT will present, in world premiere, the first ever New Stratos with manual gearbox: another feature that reinforce the “analogic essence” of this car, and will ensure a great enjoyment for the drivers that will choose this configuration. With this option MAT is offering a unique experience combining the massive, well controlled torque of the naturally aspirated V8 with the excitement of the manual transmission, an experience that is less and less available on modern sport cars. This feature perfectly fits with the spirit of this project born and developed under the leadership of Michael and Maximilian Stoschek.
Last year Manifattura Automobili Torino announced the agreement with New Stratos GbR about the licensing for the production of a 25-cars, limited series of the New Stratos; in this edition of the Geneva International Motorshow MAT will display two of the production cars: Number 001 for the German market and the first US car, both ready for delivery.
The timeless design of the New Stratos, with its striking lines and lightweight bodywork, it’s already well-known throughout the world. The New Stratos is a car born to be driven: handling, control and stability on tight and twisty roads are the true essence of this supercar that does not shy away when confronted with dirt or snow. The interior reflects the spirit of the car: essential, bare but classic, a perfect combination of carbon fiber and technical surfaces to ensure style and sportive feeling.
Paolo Garella, CEO of Manifattura Automobili Torino, has announced: “Geneva has always been the place representing the heart and spirit of the automotive industry: to attend as MAT for the second year in a row is statement of our determination and will to carry on with this adventure and a recognition of the quality of our products. To be able to present our production models of the New Stratos is something special: we are confident of the quality that we have achieved, and we are proud to show it to the world from this stage”.
