Equipped with plastic claddings and beefy tyres, the all-terrain Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is set to debut in December 2022, and it is highly significant to the brand in two ways. One is the fact that it is an all-terrain supercar, creating its new own segment. Secondly, it will be the last car by Lamborghini to have a pure internal combustion engine (ICE) powertrain before a full electrification of the brand in 2024.
Automobili Lamborghini first previewed the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato as the “Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Concept”. The brand later teased the all-terrain Huracan in two videos, showing the all-terrain supercar attacking off-road trails, kicking up sand and dust behind it.
Technical specs for the production Huracan Sterrato have not been revealed, but the Huracan Sterrato Concept did have a 47 mm ground clearance, an increased approach angle, a 6.5% departure angle, a 30mm wider track, and 20-inch wheels. It also featured underbody reinforcements and body protection, including a rear skid plate that acts as a diffuser.
Based on the Lamborghini Huracan EVO, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Concept shared the same 5.2-litre V10 powertrain. If things remain the same for the production version of the Sterrato, it will make 640 hp and get an all-wheel drive system.
The announcement was made together with the company’s third-quarter report, which saw 7,430 Lamborghinis sold worldwide from January to September 2022. Leading Lamborghinis sales for the year so far is the Lamborghini Urus with 4,834 units delivered in the first nine months of 2022. The greatest growth was shown by the Lamborghini Huracan (2,738 units) with an 11% increase from the same period last year.
In the quarterly report, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann commented, “These consistently rising figures show just how strong Lamborghini is today. We have an order portfolio that already covers the first quarter of 2024, and this allows us to work with peace of mind, looking thoughtfully ahead to the challenges facing us in the future, such as the first step towards hybridization from 2023.”
