Lamborghini All But Confirms Future Off-Road Huracan Sterrato

Dare we say this is the latest "Rambo Lambo"

LISTEN 03:14

Historically, Lamborghini likes to do things a bit differently than its competitors, Ferrari and Mclaren. The latest example of Lambo’s lunacy is the Huracan Sterrato, a lifted, chunky-tire wearing, off-road spec Huracan. With the Huracan’s life cycle coming to a close, Lamborghini wants to send the baby V-10 supercar out with a bang in a video that was released on July 26, 2022.

What is so special about the Huracan Sterrato?

The first and most obvious thing is that it is a Lamborghini Huracan specifically designed for use off-road.

It has been fitted with all the standard off-road goodies; chunky off-road tires, a lifted ride height, extra LED lights attached to the front bumper, and large black plastic fenders that seem to be screwed on rather haphazardly. Other modifications include skid plates, roof rails, a new diffuser, different air intakes, and a scoop on top of the engine cover to aid cooling.

We expect the Sterrato would be relatively at home on gravel, dirt, or sandy back road judging by how Lamborghini themselves drive it in the video, which features the Sterrato racing a woman on a mountain bike, imagine one of those old TopGear races between a rally car and someone jumping out of a plane or something.

We would recommend taking it easy with the rock crawling, those approach and departure angles don’t seem that forgiving. It would also be fitting if there is special paint or possibly a vinyl wrap optional extra to stop the environment from stripping your Italian supercar of its orange candy metal flake paint.

In terms of the powertrain, there is no way to know for sure which engine and gearbox it has, as the press release simply read "Beyond The Concrete." However, the most likely option is the non-hybrid version of the 5.2-liter V-10 from the Huracan Tecnica, meaning a max of 631 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque turning all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

What does this mean exactly?

Lamborghini released a video that featured an old TopGear-style race between the Sterrato and a woman on a mountain bike.

The only noteworthy difference between the one we see in the video and the original concept from 2019 is the camouflage livery that says, "Brave, Authentic, Unexpected" in numerous places around the body. Meaning all those spy shots from April 2022 were legitimate.

Lamborghini’s video all but confirms that the Sterrato will enter production at some point shortly as the Huracan’s replacement, or at least the hybrid version of the Huracan, is set to debut in 2024. That also likely means this is the last version of the Huracan as we know it.

We also know the Sterrato name is confirmed as it is clearly visible from the rear license plate. Expect an official production version to arrive either at the Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance in August or the Paris Motor Show in October.

Supercars tend to be rather serious with incredible attention to dynamic performance and the wild numbers they produce on a race track. Hopefully, we get to see more instances of limited-edition craziness. Just imagine an off-road variant of the Aventador’s replacement.
