Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato teased, can go off-roading

Written by Rohit Tonapi

After initially previewing as a concept back in 2019, Lamborghini has teased the production version of the Huracan Sterrato. This also confirms that there will be off-road-focused Huracan and that it is nearing production. The word ‘Sterrato’ is Italian for ‘dirt road’. The Huracan Sterrato uses the standard Huracan EVO as its base but gets a host of changes for better off-roading capabilities.

As of now, there is no confirmation of when the model will be available. However, sources suggest it could arrive in October 2022. Lamborghini has not mentioned if the Huracan Sterrato will be a part of its limited series or be an addition to the Huracan lineup. There are more chances of it being the former. The Italian supercar brand will begin its electrification journey in 2023. The next generations of the Aventador, Huracan and the facelift version of the Urus will all get a hybrid powertrain.

Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato – Highlights

The design of the Huracan Sterrato remains true to the concept back from 2019. The teaser video and images from Lamborghini show similar dual LED auxiliary lights on the front bumper, just like the concept. Changes to the sides are more significant. The sides of the Huracan Sterrato get a bolt-on plastic cladding for the front and rear fenders and the side skirts.

Other changes include roof rails, a large roof-mounted scoop for better cooling and redesigned side air intakes. The Huracan Sterrato also gets increased ride height, tweaked suspension and off-road tyres with 20-inch alloy wheels. Like the concept, the Italian brand will also likely equip the Huracan Sterrato with a front and rear skid plate and a composite panel for better underbody protection.

Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato – Powertrain

Lamborghini has not confirmed the powertrain details for the Huracan Sterrato yet. However, one can hear the distinct V10 soundtrack in the teaser video. Thus, it will likely use the same 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 making 640 HP as the Huracan EVO. As for the transmission, it will use a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. Being Lamborghini’s first two-door supercar for off-roading, it will also feature the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI). The onboard drive management system was also present in the concept version. Lamborghini will update the system to provide more torque to the rear wheels for better handling in the dirt.
