What’s better than a super car?
How about a super car that won’t rear up its tyres and screech to a halt when you try to turn off the blacktop and wind up the gravel track for the perfect winery lunch on a gloriously sunny Sunday autumn afternoon.
Meet the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato. The first super car that offers optimized driving dynamics for perfect control in all environments from the highway to a dirt road.
“With the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Sterrato, we have uniquely combined the driving experience of a true super sports car and the fun of driving a rally car,” explained Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer. “Lamborghini cars always deliver emotion: the Sterrato delivers a new degree of driving thrills.”
Ground clearance has been increased by 44 mm compared with the Huracán EVO to ensure greater suspension travel, as has the front (+30 mm) and rear (+34 mm) track widths.
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 its muscularity.
The classic air intake located on the rear hood not only enhances the sporting spirit of the model, but also helps supply the engine with clean air when driving on dusty tracks.
Seriously, this thing is designed for dusty tracks. One Powerball and rally heaven, here I come!
And I can customise this little beauty to match any lottery win dream with 350 external colours and 60 internal trim options.
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 surf aces, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (ea. 60 mph) in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 260 km/h (ea. 160 mph).
The Sterrato’s brakes have aluminum fixed monoblock calipers with six pistons (front) and four pistons (rear) and ventilated and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic discs with 380 mm diameter and 38 mm thickness at the front and 356 mm diameter and 32 mm thickness at the rear.
It comes with 19″ rims fitted exclusively with custom-engineered Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres, providing maximum versatility and adaptability for any condition and surface. With wise foresight, the tyres incorporate run-flat technology which, in case of puncture, guarantees drive minimum 80km at 80kph with 0 pressure.
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 retaining 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. The Human Machine Interface (HMI) has new graphics and special driving features; for the first time, the instruments feature a digital inclinometer with pitch and roll indicator, a compass, geographic coordinate indicator, and steering angle indicator.
Vehicle production has commenced with a limited production run of 1,499 – if my numbers come up, you might see one on the local roads by year end!
