Lamborghini Hurácan Sterrato previewed ahead of global debut        

Updated Nov 15, 2022 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

The automaker’s sports car line will have an all-terrain version.  

Lamborghini has released the first official look at its production-ready Hurácan Sterrato (dirt road), prior to the model’s upcoming world debut at the Art Basel event in Miami on November 30, 2022.

The images are accompanied by a series of video clips at Lamborghini’s YouTube channel depicting the vehicle’s performance both on and off the road. This is yet another special edition of the Italian automaker’s Hurácan sports car series, now in its eighth year. 

“[The Hurácan Sterrato is] the first super sports car designed for maximum driving pleasure even away from the asphalt on loose or dirt surfaces, reinterpreting the very concept of sportiness and emphasizing the brand principles of brave, authentic, and unexpected,” Lamborghini said in a statement. 

Unexpected is the right word, as the Hurácan is known for being driven strictly over tarmac in most of its iterations so far. That is, until Lamborghini introduced the Hurácan Sterrato Concept in 2019, based on the Hurácan Evo.

This is the first version of the Hurácan designed and engineered for off-road use

Underpinned by a reinforced frame, the Sterrato Concept featured a ground clearance 47mm higher with slightly revised approach and departure angles as well as a wheel track increased by 30mm. A set of 20-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in special off-road tires, while skidpads are integrated for protection from debris. Completing the Sterrato Concept’s aggressive look are built-in fog lamps just beyond the hood, accompanied by roof rails. 

The concept car shares the Evo’s power unit beneath the body shell, a 5.2-liter V10 kicking up 640 horsepower. This is complemented by a modified version of the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) vehicle control system that comes with predictive logic, governing the Sterrato’s all-wheel drivetrain.

The model first came to light as the Hurácan Sterrato Concept back in 2019 

While the production Hurácan Sterrato will feature slightly toned-down fender extensions and a revised front lip, the rest of the car is expected to stay true to the original concept version.
