The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato goes one step further into the realm of possibility and unlocks a new avenue for the Italian brand. The new sportscar comes with an interesting motto, ‘Beyond the Concrete’ which says a lot about the sports car and its abilities off the road.
Yes, you heard that right, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is a ‘rally-inspired’ off-road capable sportscar that breaks all previous norms of ability & performance and catapults the Italian marque into a new era of endless possibilities.
You might have dreamt of something like this once and it is now part of reality. The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is one of the variants that the Italian brand has started to produce since the start of February 2023.
The sports car is expected to come out to showrooms by the end of the first quarter. So, while you wait on your off-road Lamborghini, let’s talk a bit more in detail about what the vehicle promises to offer.
Pleasantly Different Exterior Aesthetic
The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is a Lambo at heart and as such, it has the same hexagonal-pattern styling that you commonly see in other vehicles of the brand. But there are slight differences in the design to accommodate the ‘Beyond the Concrete’ philosophy.
The most evident are the two protruding lights placed right above the front bumper. Apart from the two primary headlights, these fog lights are placed strategically to help illuminate the area out front. They do that pretty well too, thanks to the extremely bright LEDs inside.
Moreover, there is a wide roof scoop that you don’t see in other Huracan trims. It’s not for show, as some critics might argue. The roof scoop is functional and it acts as the air intake for the engine in the back. Plus, it helps with aerodynamics, which is like hitting two targets with one arrow.
Together with the features above, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato also has a series of body enhancements to accommodate the off-road nature of the car. To begin, the sportscar is 44 mm higher than its siblings. It has front underbody protection, enforced sills, and stylish wheel arches to complete the overall rugged and sporty look of the Sterrato.
The Safest Huracan Interior
On the inside, the story is pretty much the same as you would find in any of Sterrato’s siblings. You get an 8.4-inch screen to sift through the various controls. This infotainment screen helps you to access the satellite navigation system, climate control features, and audio system.
Other than that, you get Sterrato-specific features inside the cabin, like performance-altering controls, extra protection, reinforced chassis, and more. As an example, the rear arch is made of titanium, there is a four-point safety harness, carbon bi-shell sports seats, and aluminum floor mats in the Huracan Sterrato.
Since the car is made for rugged environments, there aren’t many practical storage spaces inside or outside the vehicle. You get the same small front trunk, a handful of cup/bottle holders in the cabin and that’s it! You might find that disappointing, but with a car like this, you are hardly going to carry anything more than a water bottle.
In other words, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is made for the kill. It has a cockpit interior, with all the buttons and switches tailor-made for extracting the maximum performance out of the sportscar.
Performance That Matches Style
The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato looks good, without a doubt, but it also moves like it means business. And that is all thanks to the exciting engine that powers this vehicle. The screaming V10 that hides in the rear makes a whopping 602 hp @ 8,000 rpm and produces 413 ft-lbs. of torque at 6,500 rpm.
While those figures might not be as impressive as they are in the Huracan’s other variants, performance like that is enough to tackle challenging terrain. You get more than enough torque and hp to do whatever you like on the dirt road. Plus, you get more than decent acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds which completes the entire package.
If you are still unsatisfied, wait till you hear about the four-wheel drive capability of the Sterrato! Yes, you read that right, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato uses a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox that takes power to all four wheels via the Haldex gen. V system.
In other words, you get instant power delivery to all the wheels instead of the two in other Huracan trims. That is a technical advantage that the Sterrato has over its siblings and a defining one too.
Literally Beyond the Concrete
The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato should do exactly what it is supposed to and that is to perform well on a dirt road. Its four-wheel capability should be enough to mount any kind of challenge you throw at it and more.
Unfortunately, the vehicle hasn’t been publicly tested for its advertised capabilities. So, we can’t produce any concrete results. But we hope and believe that the Sterrato will perform as well as it is supposed to. For now, we can only assume and hope that the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato will live up to its name.
The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato has a host of safety features that you won’t find in other Huracan trims. The sportscar has driver, passenger, and side airbags along with knee airbags (in selected markets). It has front and rear-specific collapsible areas, a reinforcement bar in the doors, and Electronic Stability Control to keep you safe and protected.
The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato only has to compete with the Porsche 911 Dakar. Both these vehicles are in a class of their own and they will remain there until someone else rises to the challenge.
Currently, it doesn’t seem someone like Ferrari or McLaren will go down this road. But we don’t know when our minds will change. A new challenger may come into the untapped market soon enough. We’d have to wait and see.
How Much Does A Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Cost?
The Lamborghini Sterrato hasn’t come out in showrooms yet and it will be a while before we see one in action. Therefore, we can’t state the exact cost of this vehicle. However, we can estimate that the Sterrato will cost around $270,000.
If you add performance, cosmetic, or off-road packages to the mix, the price could go up multiple folds.
