Lamborghini teases the Safari-style Huracan Sterrato by drifting it in sand

Despite previously stating that the Sterrato concept is merely a one-off, it seems that the off-road-focused Huracan is very much in Lamborghini’s plans this year. The Italian supercar-maker has now teased the unannounced model once again, this time in a video dubbed “Beyond The Concrete – Part 2” that shows the Sterrato playing in the sand.

It probably warrants a disclaimer that we still don’t know if it’s actually called the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato. We’re basing it off the concept they unveiled back in 2019, and seeing that it’s pretty much the same car, we think it’s fair for them to keep the name. Just be forewarned, you know, if you’re reading this from the future.

Compared to the regular Lamborghini Huracan, the new safari-style Sterrato here gets a significantly taller ride height, and is complemented by a whole array of unique off-road-focused exterior modifications, including black plastic wheelarch claddings, additional LED rally lights on the front, roof rack, and a roof-mounted air intake scoop that routes air into the engine.

The video only gave a short glimpse of the interior, but from what we can see, there doesn’t seem to be any modifications done to the inside aside from some different material choices.

In terms of powertrain, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is expected to retain the mid-mounted 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine, likely in the latest 640 hp configuration as seen in the Tecnica, STO, and Evo variants.

Like the Evo, the Sterrato here will also come with an all-wheel drive system. However, the rear-biased system should still make drifting quite effortless – at least on sand – as seen in the video above.

Lamborghini didn’t announce a specific launch date for the Huracan Sterrato just yet, but rumours are suggesting a reveal at the upcoming 2022 Paris Motor Show. The Safari-style supercar will most likely be the last hurrah for the Huracan, which will be replaced by an electrified successor next year, as teased via the marque’s Direzione Cor Tauri electrification plan.
