Time and time again, people have wondered: If Santa had to deliver gifts by car, what vehicle would he choose?
An SUV or pickup makes sense on account of the cargo space they provide, but going this route is hardly an inspired choice. Instead, We ask: why not just ditch the presents altogether?
The answer? Probably something along the lines of what Girardo & Company pulled out for its annual Christmas video—a Lancia Stratos Group IV rally car. Watch:
Now, to be fair, Santa didn’t exactly ditch the idea of delivering presents completely. Frankly, though, he might as well have. The gifts barely last a few seconds on the roof of his ride before they’re left in the dust after jolly old Saint Nick guns it down a straight. We reckon some kids aren’t going to be too happy watching this video. Oh, well.
Other things of note here? The drone footage through the woods is exceptional, and we’re fans of the choice of music as well. The Darkness’ ‘Don’t Let the Bells End’ is a severely underrated Christmas tune.
So, think an old-school rally great would make a nice runabout for Santa? Or did you have something else in mind? Let us know in the comments.
