Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled the new Huracán Sterrato, its first super sports car designed for maximum driving pleasure on and off the paved road.
When we think of Lamborghinis, we tend to think of super sleek, super performing machines that are designed for the track and city streets. Save for the brand’s SUV, most of us would be hesitant to take any of the Raging Bull’s rides off the asphalt but that’s a perception the brand wants to change with the arrival of the Huracán Sterrato.
Limited to 1,499 units, the Huracán Sterrato offers optimized driving dynamics for perfect control in all environments, from the highway to dirt roads. It achieves this with an updated version of the LDVI (Lamborghini Integrated Vehicle Dynamics) system, with specific STRADA and SPORT calibrations and, a first for the Huracán line, RALLY mode for low-grip conditions.
The exterior of the new model expresses the adventurous spirit of the Sterrato right from the first glance. For example, the ground clearance has been increased by 44 mm compared with the Huracán EVO to ensure greater suspension travel. Furthermore, in addition to protecting the car body, the aluminum front underbody protection, the reinforced sills, the rear diffuser and the sturdy wheel arches all emphasize an inherant muscularity. The classic air intake located on the rear hood not only enhances the sporting spirit of the new model, but also helps supply the engine with clean air when driving on dusty tracks.

The Huracán Sterrato comes with a 5.2-liter V10 engine with maximum power output of 610 CV and 560 Nm of torque (at 6500 rpm), combined with 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and electronically controlled all-wheel drive with rear mechanical self-locking differential. Designed to offer optimum performance on unpaved and sandy surfaces, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 260 km/h.
The car is fitted with brakes with aluminum fixed monoblock calipers and ventilated and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic discs. We’re sure you’ll also love the 19-inch rims fitted exclusively with custom-engineered Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres, which provide maximum versatility and adaptability for any condition and surface. These bespoke Bridgestone tyres have been designed to match 100% car DNA, including an innovative pattern design and a cutting edge compound which provide a perfect grip both on gravel and tarmac while keeping an excellent handling and high speed performance.
The interiors, characterized by the exclusive Alcantara Verde Sterrato upholstery, reflect the “feel like a pilot” philosophy traditionally adopted for the Huracán line, which places the driver at the center of the passenger compartment for the ultimate driving experience and absolute control of all the car’s features. With the new model, the Human Machine Interface (HMI) has new graphics and special driving features, including a digital inclinometer with pitch and roll indicator, a compass, geographic coordinate indicator, and steering angle indicator.
Among the on-board services, Lamborghini Connect includes integration with Amazon Alexa to adjust car features such as air conditioning and lighting, as well as control the navigation, phone calls and entertainment with a simple voice command. The car can also be controlled remotely via the Lamborghini UNICA app with, for example, remote speed monitoring and the sending of a destination directly to the navigation system.
Of course, you’ll also be able to capture all your adventures behind the wheel thanks to the Lamborghini Drive Recorder, which allows the driver to video the most exciting driving moments.
