In 2019, Lamborghini unveiled the Sterrato concept vehicle to the world as an off-road-focused supercar. Since then, we’ve seen a working example of the Sterrato in spy shots and sneak peeks. Now, we finally get to see the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato in the metal before its official debut at Art Basel Miami Beach on November 30th.
The automaker calls the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato “the first all-terrain super sports car with a V10 engine and all-wheel drive.” It’s also the first time Lamborghini unveils a new car at Art Basel Miami Beach. The Sterrato is based on the current Huracan and looks like a supercar built to break the speed limit on a Mad Max: Fury Road-style autobahn.
The Sterrato is designed to bring the Lamborghini driving experience to loose gravel and dirt surfaces. It achieves this with a lifted suspension, gravel-gripping all-terrain tires wrapped around new design wheels, and a roof-mounted air scoop. The air scoop helps keep the dust and gravel out of the engine bay and breathe clean air. In addition, the Lamborghini Sterrato comes with LED light bars on the front bumper and a roof rack with crossbars to carry the essentials for an off-road grand tour.
To help toughen up the Italian supercar, Lamborghini gave the Sterrato protective cladding on its side skirts and bumpers and bolt-on fender flares, serving as guards to protect the bodywork from debris. Even though Lamborghini confirmed a V10 engine for the Huracan Sterrato, it is unclear how much horsepower will be sent to its all-wheel drive system. We can only speculate based on other special edition V10 Huracans like the STO, which offers 631 hp and 443 lb.-ft of torque to blaze lap times.
Off-road supercars could be the next trend in exotic vehicles. Popular models like the Safari Porsche 911 have proven that it’s possible to turn a low-riding supercar into a rooster tail-spitting off-roader – and look fantastic while doing it.
