We all love cars with pop up headlights! They were our childhood poster cars. There was something special about them, they've always looked very exotic and were always associated with luxury cars like Lambos and Ferraris.

Perhaps many of you still dream of the sporty model Toyota gt Celica 5th Generation or about the sweet 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 . In fact pop-up headlights were a great pleasure in most sports cars until the late 90s when safety restrictions made them illegal.

11th place for the mighty Lancia Stratos HF

V6 Ferrari DINO 2.4L / RWD / 190bhp / manual / 0-60 mph in 6.2s /  quarter mile in 13.5s 142.5 mph

Rally version : 2.4l / 24valve / 560hp

Lancia Stratos Turbo Group 5
The Stratos weighed between 900 to 950 kilograms, depending on configuration. Power output was around 275 hp (205 kW) for the original 12 valve version and 320 hp (240 kW) for the 24 valve version. Beginning with the 1976 season the 24 valve heads were banned from competition for being non-standard. Even with this perceived power deficit the Stratos was the car to beat in competition and when it did not suffer an accident or premature transmission failure (of the latter there were many) it had great chances to win. Despite of the fact that the Stratos was never intended to be race car, there were two Group 5 racing car built with 560 hp (420 kW), using a single KKK turbocharger.

Cons: You can't buy one !
