Lamborghini turns Huracán into wild off-road supercar concept

Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato off-road concept revealed

The Raging Bull has gone full-Mad Max, with the off-roading Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato concept.

While the Lamborghini Urus is where the brand says its ‘off-road expertise [is] exemplified’, this one-off is a more ‘unconventional exploration of new horizons’.

Nestled in the Sterrato’s body is the same naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine that powers the Huracán Evo, good for 470kW and 600Nm.

It’s also all-wheel drive, ideal for fighting loose surfaces, and Lamborghini’s trick ‘Dinamica Veicolo Integrata’ (LDVI) is retuned in the Sterrato for exactly that purpose.

“Calibrated for off-road driving including low-adherence surfaces, and tuned to maximize traction and acceleration, the LDVI system in the Sterrato provides enhanced rear-wheel drive behavior, producing more torque together with additional stabilization in oversteering maneuvers.”

Its raised suspension and modified tracks are where the most obvious changes are found – a 47mm lift with 30mm wider tracks and large 20-inch wheels wrapped in ‘balloon tyres’ turn the Huracán into something that looks a little more like it belongs in a dystopian George Miller film than on Melbourne’s Chapel St.

Underneath, some of the protective elements like the rear skid plate are dual functional, with the aforementioned also acting as a diffuser. LED lights are even mounted to the roof and along the front bar.

Lamborghini chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani says the Sterrato is a way for Lamborghini to explore what is possible in directions the company wouldn’t normally step.

“The Huracán Sterrato illustrates Lamborghini’s commitment to being a future shaper: a super sports car with off-road capabilities, the Sterrato demonstrates the Huracán’s versatility and opens the door to yet another benchmark of driving emotion and performance,” Reggiani says.

“Lamborghini’s R&D and design teams are constantly exploring new opportunities and delivering the unexpected as a core characteristic of our DNA, challenging possibilities while inspired by Lamborghini brand heritage.”

Lamborghini links the Sterrato to two cars modified by the late Bob Wallace, who was a Lamborghini test driver and raced a desert-going Jarama and Urraco in the early-to-mid 1970s.
