Well, a replica Stratos body, anyway.
We would. Wouldn’t you?

I wonder two things, which one will drive better and which will be more properly put together, the Lister Bell, or the Hawk replicas?

Hawk is £13,000, Lister Bell is £40,000. My money is on the Lister Bell.
Also, Lister Bell unconsciously reminds you of Lister Jaguar. Diabolical, hehe.

That other Lister was the first thing that came to my mind.
I’d drive a replica. I can’t wait for somebody to make an 037 kit.

Looks like there are a couple of people already doing this — it goes onto Lancia Montecarlo/Scorpion running gear.

The Carteroni 037 is really cool, I should have some pictures of it early next year when the owner/builder brings it to the annual classic car show here. Last few years he’s trailered it as it progressed through the stages of the build and development, the attention to detail is very high.

What a great effort! Deeply impressed on the level of detail and quality. They should have made blueprints, and a mold for the Beta’s body and try to sell it.
Not only are Betas hard to find in usable condition, it’s also a classic and it would be a shame to cannibalize the few remaining examples (Shelby Eleanor, anyone? Grr… ) for a replica.

Actually the Lister Storm came to mine…
But the Bell lists for £21k before VAT (the Hawk is about 13k before VAT).

The Hawk kit for £13k is only a basic chassis body package, there is a lot more required outside of the kit price & will still cost at least £30k to complete.
Any Stratos replica will realistically cost £30 to self build in this day & age.
Stratos bodied 166 is also very misleading, the car has a full bespoke spaceframe chassis & custom suspension, the 166 provides the engine & transmission.

Thank you for the clarification! We admit that the title of the post was meant to be a bit provocative, as we are certain the car is a lot more sophisticated than this sparse post gives it credit for. Autocar’s glowing review speaks for itself, and this is probably a fine motor to drive as well as to behold.
