Lamborghini reveals an off-road version of the Huracán, the Sterrato

Back in August, we reported Lamborghini was teasing a new variant of the Huracán, one that was accompanied by the words “Beyond The Concrete”. So now, just a few months later, the Italian automaker has completely unveiled the car, in all its fender flared, V10 glory. We present to you the Huracán Sterrato.

Taking a completely new take to the brand’s principles of being brave, authentic and unexpected, the Sterrato starts from the acclaimed base of the Huracán, and makes use of some new hardware and software to keep you going once the Tarmac finishes. The 5.2 litre V10 offers 450kW and is coupled to a seven speed dual clutch gearbox responsible for transmitting all that power to (of course) all four wheels. The Sterrato setup is marginally slower than the road-only vehicles, but I strongly think owners will not be too concerned.

To increase the Sterrato’s versatility, Lamborghini gave its suspension a 1.7 inch lift when compared to the base car. Put that together with dirt dedicated tyres and an updated version of the brand’s Integrated Vehicle Dynamics system and you should have optimised driving dynamics for perfect control in all environments, from the highway to dirt roads. There are even new calibrations for Strada and Sport driving modes, and a new Rally mode for low-grip surfaces.

“With the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Sterrato, we have uniquely combined the driving experience of a true super sports car and the fun of driving a rally car,” explained Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer. “Lamborghini cars always deliver emotion: the Sterrato delivers a new degree of driving thrills.”  

The car is also equipped with aluminum caliper, six pistons (front) and four pistons (rear) brakes that offer cross-drilled carbon-ceramic discs with 380 mm diameter at the front and 356 mm at the rear. The bespoke 19” rims sport custom-engineered Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres that should slightly more sidewall for when it’s needed while maintaining engagement.

Finishing off the exterior touches, we see the flared fenders, the new lights on the front and some additional underbody protection. Reinforced sills and a rear hood to ensure dust-free air intake complete the package. “True to our values as a visionary, bold and unconventional brand, with the Sterrato we are breaking new ground in driving sensations,” commented Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini Chairman and CEO. “Presenting the car at Art Basel in Miami reflects how, just like an avant-garde work of art, the Sterrato represents a radical and original interpretation of the super sports car concept but, in terms of performance, the Sterrato belongs in the world’s most dynamic and exciting driving environments.”  

The pilot-inspired interior we’ve come to expect from Huracáns is also seen here, albeit a more ‘tactical’ one at that. The exclusive Alcantara Verde Sterrato upholstery helps solidify that, and alongside the new and revised HMI suite, owners will have other instruments never installed to a Lambo supercar before: a digital inclinometer with pitch and roll indicator, a compass, geographic coordinate indicator, and steering angle indicator.

If having an off-road going supercar did not feel unique enough for you , fear not – the Sterrato is part of the Lamborghini Ad Personam program, where customers can choose from 350 external colours and over 60 colours for the leather and Alcantara interiors. This should offer almost unlimited possibilities for customising the appearance of the 1499 units that will be produced. Pricing has not been announced yet, and its production run will start in February 2023.
