Question My car of the day, Mat Stratos.

I bet some of you are thinking what exactly is Mat Stratos? Well it's based on a Ferrari F430 or 430 Scuderia with a radically reduced wheelbase and an all-new chassis set-up that costs from around £500,000. Weighing in at 1247 Kg thanks to a full carbonfibre body, it has a Titanium exhaust system, a flat-plane crank 4.3 litre V8 that's good for 532 BHP. The car is totally re-engineered by Pininfarina's special projects department and subtly restyled in places. There are plans to build only 25 examples. It's simply a case of having money no object and inside is extremely stripped back with bare floors, the carbon that shrink-wraps every surface and it has an integral roll cage. But can this be worth the asking price I hear you ask? There are cars available for far less, a 992 or Vantage? Or even the Mc Laren 600 LT, but you know how these things work, for only 25 examples it's sure to be a collectors item and for those bored of limited edition Mc Larens.

It's nice, but it's way too much money.

The modern take on the Lancia 037 is stunning. It's also too expensive.

Send me 24 of them over, I will never spend all these billions at this rate, I will put them in a corner under some old tarpaulins so no one ever see's them again.

Wot ‘e sed.

For that kind of cash I could get the real (and very flawed) thing, but a strong childhood memory. I was far too young to be in lust at the relevant point, but I really, really loved the Stratos.
