On the occasion of Art Basel Miami, Lamborghini presented the Huracán Sterrato. This is the first super sports car designed for maximum driving pleasure even when you are far from asphalt and venture on uneven terrains or dirt roads – a true reinterpretation of the very concept of sportiness.
The driving position is low and tilted backwards, almost like in a one-seater. The digital screen can be controlled with virtual buttons in addition to further commands for the air conditioning system and other functions. The levers handling the transmission remain physical and the interior is fitted with Alcantara Verde Sterrato upholstery. Leather and carbon fibres are the dominant materials and the unfailing manettino switch on the steering wheel to manage the different driving modes is also present.
The central display includes new functions dedicated to off-road driving as well as the new Rally driving mode in the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) system.
Huracán Sterrato is equipped with the 5.2-litre V10 engine in a version with 610hp in maximum power and 560 Nm in torque (at 6500 rpm), combined with a 7-speed dual-clutch gear shift and the electronically controlled all-wheel drive with rear mechanical self-locking differential.
The Huracán Sterrato has the same 5.2 V10 engine as the other models in the range and delivers 610 hp and 560 Nm. Also, in this case, it is paired with an automatic 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive with a rear self-locking differential.
To allow the supercar to drive off the beaten track and have a greater excursion of the suspension, the ground clearance has been increased by 44 mm compared to the Huracán Evo, while the front and rear tracks have been widened by 30 and 34 mm respectively.
The aluminium shielding reduces scratches and damage to the front, while the large air intake on the rear hood supplies the V10 with clean air even when it is unleashed on dusty roads. The braking system is also perfectly Lamborghini, with 380 mm carbon-ceramic discs on the front and 356 mm on the rear. There will not be many lucky owners of this model, which will be made in only 1,499 examples.
