lamborghini's huracán sterrato concept is a super sports car for your off-road fantasies

while you might not think of a lamborghini racing across sand dunes, the marque is setting its sights on new horizons with its unconventional concept, the huracán sterrato, created for the most demanding environments. its geometric appearance and angular shape immediately typify its imposing off-road abilities within the framework of a super sports car. internally, a specially-designed interior trim reflects its sporty character with a new lightweight titanium roll cage, four-point seatbelts, carbon bi-shell sports seats, and aluminum floor panels.

 

 

the lamborghini huracán sterrato bears the same 5.2 liter naturally-aspirated engine producing 640 horsepower as the huracán EVO. the huracán evo’s LDVI (lamborghini integrated vehicle dynamics) takes controls the sterrato’s systems, like its four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, modified suspension and torque vectoring. the huracán sterrato is calibrated for off-road driving’s most challenging scenarios, such as low-adherence surfaces, and is tuned to maximize traction and acceleration. furthermore, the LDVI system boasts enhanced rear-wheel drive behavior, producing more torque together with additional stabilization in oversteering maneuvers.

 

 

off-roading capabilities are further enhanced by 20” wheels on balloon tires set into wide-body wheel arches with integrated air intakes, giving the huracán sterrato a commanding presence. highly damage resistant, rugged, open shoulder blocks provide off-road surface adherence with improved traction and braking. the concept is fitted with underbody reinforcements and body protection, including a rear skid plate that acts as a diffuser. topping it all off, an off-road LED light package would comprise a roof-mounted LED light bar and LED bumper lights with flood function.

 

 

‘the huracán sterrato illustrates lamborghini’s commitment to being a future shaper: a super sports car with off-road capabilities,’ said maurizio reggiani, chief technical officer of automobili lamborghini. ‘the sterrato demonstrates the huracán’s versatility and opens the door to yet another benchmark of driving emotion and performance. lamborghini’s R&D and design teams are constantly exploring new opportunities and delivering the unexpected as a core characteristic of our DNA, challenging possibilities while inspired by lamborghini brand heritage.’
