ITK Official, 2023 is the year of the ridiculous off-road supercar with Lamborghini finally unveiling its lifted, The 455kW, V10-powered Huracan Sterrato To duke it out with Porsche’s 911 Dakar.
Sterrato is a bold, angry and unique, rider 44mm more than the Huracan Evo While wearing Bridgestone Dueler rubber where Pirelli Trofeos are normally found.
Like the 911 Dakar, the Sterrato isn’t a rock to trouble the likes of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, but a sand and dirt road specialist. That is if a buyer – possibly a collector – is willing to part with the stone chips.
The best part? We have a preview drive in the concept, which you can read here.
“Presenting the car at Art Basel, Miami Beach reflects how, just like an avant-garde piece of art, the Sterrato represents the core and originality of a super sports car concept but, in terms of performance. , Sterrato belongs to the most dynamic and exciting environment around the world”, said Stefan Winkleman, CEO of Lamborghini.
This special edition marks the last hurrah for the Huracan following the release of the Technica, with only 1499 Sterratos being produced globally. The Sterrato is likely to hit Australia in limited quantities and pricing is yet to be confirmed.
What’s new with the Huracan Sterrato?
Taking a mid-engined supercar off-road might seem like a strange or silly pursuit, but the Sterrato has been tweaked to make it suitable.
Starting with a 44mm lift in ground clearance courtesy of longer stroke suspension components and longer 235/40R19 front and 285/40 R19 rear Bridgestone Dualer all-terrain run-flat tires Designed specifically for Sterrato.
Track width has also increased by 30mm at the front and 34mm at the rear for greater stability – the tires are hidden by a set of overfenders, naturally, with exposed bolt heads.
Sterrato-compatible dampers connect the tires to the chassis via independent double wishbone suspension at all four corners. Lamborghini has also tweaked the Sterrato’s vehicle dynamics and ESC settings, with specific Strada and Sport Mods to suit off-road driving.
Rally mode is included for ultimate loose level control, while The Sterrato’s ESC system can be completely disabled..
Braking is taken care of by six-piston front and four-piston rear monobloc calipers clamping 380mm and 365mm ventilated rotors respectively.
Under the rear deck is a 5.2-litre petrol V10 that produces 455kW of power – a touch less than the 470kW Huracan Evo – and 610Nm of torque. A functional roof-mounted air intake helps feed the V10 when dusty on the go.
The Sterrato uses the Huracan’s seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, with an electronically controlled AWD system and a mechanical rear limited-slip differential.
The Huracan Sterrato sprints from 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds, and has a top speed of 260km/h.
Huracan Sterrato Design
While Sterrato offers a lot of customization with a choice of 350 paint, and 60 upholstery colors through the Ad Personam program.
The Strato’s theme is a new kind of sport for Lamborghini inside and out. Sharp, angular fenders and matte green paintwork are accented with a contrasting black roof with red decals and rails.
There are new wheel designs, red brake calipers, and LED light pods on the front fenders. You won’t miss the Strato on (or off) the road.
Inside, this example is fitted with Verde Sterrato colored Alcantara upholstery while the infotainment and digital driving display graphics have been redesigned in line with Sterrato.
Australian plans have yet to be confirmed, but it’s likely the Sterrato will arrive here in limited quantities, with a price tag north of $450K.
