The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is the first, but also the last of its kind – 1,499 units only



The wild-looking all-terrain Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato has finally made its world debut, and it is rather historical for two things. It is Lamborghini’s first all-terrain supercar, but also the last Lamborghini to be purely petrol-powered. With only 1,499 units planned and production will start in February 2023.

From a sales report last in November, Lamborghini said, “A final farewell to the pure combustion engine will be made at the end of the year at Art Basel in Miami with an all-terrain version of the Huracán, a model once again destined to impress and create a new segment in the super sports car world.”

Based on the Lamborghini Huracan EVO, the Huracan Sterrato is powered by the same 5.2-litre V10 engine that makes 610 hp (metric) and 560 Nm. The V10 engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) that sends power to all wheels, and the car does 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 9.8 seconds.

Compared to the Huracan EVO, the Huracan Sterrato gets an updated version of Lamborghini Integrated Vehicle Dynamics (LDVI) system with specific ‘Strada’ and ‘Sports’ calibrations. There is also a new ‘Rally’ mode which is introduced to the Huracan line for the first time.

Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer, Rouven Mohr said, “With the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Sterrato, we have uniquely combined the driving experience of a true super sports car and the fun of driving a rally car. Lamborghini cars always deliver emotion: the Sterrato delivers a new degree of driving thrills.”

‘All-terrain upgrades’ on the Sterrato include the increased ground clearance by 44 mm, a 30mm wider front track, and a 34 mm wider rear track. For protection, the underbody is equipped with aluminum front underbody protection, reinforced sills, and a roof-mounted intake for the V10 engine.

The tyres are much beefier than usual, and they are a set of Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres that have been custom-engineered for the Huracan Sterrato. The wheels are 19 inches on all four corners and the tyres are 235/40R19 in front and 285/40 R19 in the rear. For a worry-free “off-road” experience, the tyres are of the run-flat type that can still be driven at 80 km/h with 0 pressure.

Completing the adventurous look (and nature) of the Huracan Sterrato are wheel arch claddings, front LED spotlights, and roof rails. There is also a ‘Sterrato’ design on the sides just in case you didn’t notice how special this new car by Lamborghini Automobili is. Remember, only 1,499 units will be made.

Inside, the Huracan Sterrato is upholstered in the exclusive ‘Alcantara Verde Sterrato’ and has a “feel like a pilot” philosophy that places the driver right in the centre of the cockpit. No official images have been posted on the Lamborghini website yet, but the various videos on the car already show its interior.

Also equipped in the Huracan Sterrato is the Lamborghini Connect service that includes integration with Amazon Alexa. With Alexa, drivers can adjust car features such as air conditioning and lighting, as well as control navigation, phone calls, and entertainment with a simple voice command. The car can also be controlled remotely via the Lamborghini UNICA app.

The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is an exciting new car by Lamborghini Automobili that also spearheads a new genre. However, it is also the brand’s “final farewell to the pure combustion engine”.
