The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Is A 600-HP All-Terrain Supercar
Just 1,499 examples of the off-road Raging Bull will be available in 2023.
The stunningly cut body has been raised by 1.7 inches compared Huracan EVO, and its track width has increased by 1.1 inches in the front and 1.3 inches in the rear. There’s a plethora of reinforcements, from the aluminum front underbody to a bolstered diffuser, wheel arches and sills.
Aside from the body lift, the most noticeable addition is a towering, fresh air-gulping rear intake in lieu of the typical side intakes, which were clogging the engine’s filters in testing. “It was eating too much dust,” Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini’s design director, told Car and Driver, “or rather the filters were getting blocked much too quickly.”
While the Huracan’s 5.2-liter V10 has been downtuned from 631 to 610 horsepower in this application, the all-wheel drive, seven-speed automatic “off-roader” will still hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds on the way to a limited 160-mph max speed. C&D adds that with regard to top end, this is technically the slowest production Lamborghini since the LM002 “Rambo Lambo” SUV, but even with that hampered top end, only the world’s best rally drivers have any business pushing the Sterrato to its terminal velocity off the pavement.
It rides on 19 inch rims wrapped in Bridgestone Dueler AT002 run-flat rubber—Lamborghini says that these tires were “custom engineered” to “provide a perfect grip both on gravel and tarmac while keeping an excellent handling and high speed performance.”
No interior images were provided, but Lamborghini says the “Alcantara Verde Sterrato upholstery, reflect the ‘feel like a pilot’ philosophy traditionally adopted for the Huracán line.” Lamborghini’s HMI interface operated by a central touchscreen also gains new off-road-geared features, including a digital inclinometer, a compass, and geographic coordinate and steering angle indicators.
Limited to 1,499 examples, orders for the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato open up later this year ahead of the February 2023 production.
