Recently, Lamborghini released preview images of its then-upcoming Huracán Sterrato. The time has now come… Say an official “ciao” to the Huracán Sterrato, “the first super sports car designed for maximum driving pleasure … on loose or dirt surfaces”. Only 1 499 examples will be made.

“True to our values as a visionary, bold and unconventional brand, with the Sterrato, we are breaking new ground in driving sensations,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini chairman and CEO. “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 Sterrato delivers a new degree of driving thrills”

According to the Raging Bull brand, the Huracán Sterrato offers optimised driving dynamics for perfect control in all environments, from the highway to dirt roads. Allowing this, the Huracán Sterrato, compared with its EVO stablemate, sports an updated version of Lamborghini’s Integrated Vehicle Dynamics (LDVI) system. The set-up features specific Strada and Sport calibrations and a Rally mode for enhanced low-grip conditions.

“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,” said Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini’s chief technical officer. “The Sterrato delivers a new degree of driving thrills.”

The firm says the Huracán Sterrato’s exterior expresses its adventurous spirit. Compared with the EVO, the Sterrato’s fore and aft tracks have been increased by 30 mm and 34 mm. The ground clearance is up by 44 mm “to ensure greater suspension travel”. The suspension arrangement is of the independent double-wishbone variety. ‘MagneRide’ electromagnetic damper control is also present. 

Adding to its all-terrain capability, the front end features aluminium underbody protection. The sills have been reinforced. The air intake at the rear supplies clean air to the engine when driving on dirt roads. 

The Huracán Sterrato is equipped with the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based brand’s 5.2-litre V10 petrol powertrain producing 449 kW and 565 Nm of torque, available from 8 000 r/min and 6 500 r/min, respectively. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission directs power to an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive Haldex system. Lamborghini claims a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 3.4 seconds, a 0-200 km/h time of 9.8 seconds and a top speed of 260 km/h.
