The Huracan Sterrato Proves There’s Still Lamborghini Madness, And It’s Almost Here

The Lamborghini Huracan was launched in 2014. This gave the supercar maker the chance to squeeze in a mid-engine platform and give us various interpretations of the “small Lambo”.

Lamborghini has long been toying with the idea of ​​a mid-engined off-road supercar, and in 2019, Lamborghini introduced the Sterrato Concept, a Huracan off-roader.

But unlike most Lamborghini concepts, the Huracan Sterrato will exist.

The off-road Huracan is expected to launch in late 2022, and here’s what we know so far.

HURACAN STERRATO takes precedence over other models

Lamborghini has been flirting with the idea of ​​hybrid propulsion for a while now, and the Lamborghini Asterion concept car released in 2015 is a good example.


Rumor has it that an off-road model will be released, but it looks like the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato takes precedence over that.

If the Asterion goes into production, it will have the same 5.2-liter V-10 as the Huracan.

Unlike the Huracan, however, the naturally aspirated V-10 will be part of the hybrid’s powertrain.

The spiritual successor of the Lamborghini RALI model

Yes, the upcoming Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is not the first roadster built by the Italian company.


In the 1970s, former Lamborghini evaluation diver Bob Wallace modified some Lamborghini models with a special assembly suspension.

Two of them were the ’73 Lamborghini JARAMA RALLY and the 1974 Lamborghini URRACO RALLY.

The fastest supercar off road

The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato has a special off-road suspension and is 47mm higher than the standard car.


Twenty-inch wheels are wrapped in special off-road tires with larger sidewalls, and the widening of the wheel arches adds 1.2 inches (300 mm) to the track.

The front end now has aluminum plates, just like on an off-road SUV, and special “convention lights” have been added to the front of the car.

It was also the first mid-engined Lamborghini to come with light bars and roof bars.

While the interior of the Sterrato has yet to be announced, we know it will be a heavily revised version of what we learned from the Huracan EVO.

The interior of the Huracan Sterrato will feature unique finishes, aluminum floor, a lightweight titanium cage and new carbon fiber seats with four-point armrests.

Although the Huracan Sterrato looks like the evil son of the Huracan Performante and the Lamborghini Urus, the off-road supercar doesn’t share the same parts as its SUV sibling.

That said, the wheel arch extensions are designed to mimic the fenders on the Urus.

The Sterrato also has integrated braces, which, unlike conventional cars, are made from carbon fiber and elastic resin.


But just because it can be driven as a proper rally car doesn’t mean it gives way to a road-going Huracan variant.

The Huracan Sterrato’s 5.2-liter V-10 has the same power as the Huracan Performante. 640 hp (470 kW) at 8,000 RPM and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) at 6,500 RPM.

Power goes down through four wheels and a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The 0-60 mph (97 km/h) sprint happens in 3.0 seconds, which is a hair’s breadth slower than the Performante’s 2.8 seconds and the same as the rear-wheel-drive Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica.

A long statue and various off-road modifications mean that the maximum speed is slightly lower than other Huracan models – 188 mph (303 km / h).

At 3,527 pounds (1,600 kg), the Huracan Sterrato is the heaviest version of the Huracan.

The Huracan Sterrato is powered by the Huracan EVO and features extensive chassis upgrades and extensive tuning of the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) system.

Thanks to the system’s predictive logic, which controls the four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering and other critical systems, Sterrato can predict the driver’s next move and adjust accordingly.

It will not be the most expensive HURACAN model


The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is expected to be limited to 500 to 1,000 units.

That said, the Sterrato should retail for around $245,000, between $206,000 for the Huracan Evo and US$ 275,000 (BRL 1,411,932.50 real Brazil) for the Huracan Performante.

It also makes Sterrato cheaper than STO, which costs US$ 328,000 (BRL 1,684,050.40 real Brazil) and about the same price as the Huracan Tecnica in US$ 239,000 (BRL 1,227,097.70 real Brazil).
