Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato 2023: off-road ready supercar to rival 911 Dakar detailed in full


The gravel-bashing supercar will be limited to just 1499 units when production kicks off next year

Lamborghini has finally unveiled the Huracan Sterrato in full, becoming the most wild iteration of this entry-level supercar to date. 

According to Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer, the Huracan Sterrato combines “the driving experience of a true super sports car and the fun of driving a rally car.”

Despite the fact that the Huracan Sterrato sits in quite a niche off-road supercar segment, it will likely find itself pitted against the recently unveiled Porsche 911 Dakar when it goes on sale.

As expected, the Huracan Sterrato will be powered by the same 5.2-litre V10 engine as the regular supercar, with 448kW of power  and 560Nm of torque on tap. 

Though this isn’t the most powerful version of this V10 that Lamborghini offers (as that belongs to the EVO/Technica/STO with 470kW) the Sterrato can still hit 100km/h from a standing start in just 3.4 seconds. 

 A seven speed dual-clutch transmission sends power through to an electronically controlled all-wheel drive system, and it gets a mechanical locking differential on the rear axle.

It also gets six-piston calipers up front, and four-piston calipers in the rear. These clamp down onto carbon ceramic rotors at all four corners. 

Though Lamborghini hasn’t provided a total ground clearance figure, it has been raised by 44mm, so will be somewhere in the region of 180mm. Along the same lines, it gets its track widened by 30mm at the front, and 34mm at the rear. 

Keeping with this off-road theme, the 19-inch wheels are wrapped in custom-engineered Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres, which measure 235/40 at the front, and 285/40 at the rear. Lamborghini also notes that these are runflat tyres, that allows drivers to drive up to 80km at 80km/h with zero pressure.

These sit beneath extended plastic fender flares at all four corners, which significantly add to the off-road look of the Sterrato. The LED lights at the front, roof rails, and roof-mounted snorkel also add to this rough and ready look.

The changes on the inside of the Huracan Sterrato aren’t as extreme as the exterior, but Lamborghini says it has designed the cabin in such a way to make the driver “feel like a pilot”.

Lamborghini has also updated the driver’s display to include pitch and angle information – which is the first time the brand has done such a thing. 

Australian pricing and specification is yet to be revealed, but production for the Huracan Sterrato is set to kick off in February 2023, with just 1499 units to be built.
