Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Unveiled
Today at Art Basel Miami, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato made its long-awaited public premiere. We now have the complete technical specifications for the supercar that can be driven across a rally stage, which was first unveiled in concept form in June 2019.
To make the Sterrato capable of going off-road, Lamborghini has added a number of mechanical improvements. In order to accommodate extra suspension travel, the front and rear tracks have been extended by 30 and 34 millimetres, respectively, and the ground clearance has risen by 44 millimetres. Additionally, it receives stronger sills, aluminium front underbody protection, and a new roof-mounted air inlet that enables the engine to breathe more cleanly when travelling over dusty roads. The supercar’s Rally mode and Strada and Sport modes have been calibrated, and the Sterrato also includes a revised vehicle dynamic pack, or LDVI (Lamborghini Integrated Vehicle Dynamics).
The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is equipped with specially made Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres and sits on brand-new 19-inch wheels, which are one size smaller than the conventional AWD model. The run-flat dual-purpose tyres have run-flat technology and are 235/40-R19 up front and 285/40-R19 back.
The 5.2-litre, normally aspirated V10 engine in the Huracan Sterrato is the same as the one in the standard Huracan AWD, but it has been modified to produce 610 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of peak torque. As a result, the Sterrato has 30 fewer horsepower and 40 fewer newtons of torque than the standard Huracan AWD. This is due to the Huracan Sterrato’s rugged construction, which makes the reduction in overall performance acceptable.
Power is distributed to all four wheels via an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system and a rear mechanical self-locking differential when the engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. While top speed has decreased by 60kph, it also claims to have a 0-100kph time that is around half a second slower. According to Lamborghini, the Sterrato has a top speed of 260 kph and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 3.4 seconds.
The Sterrato’s increased ground clearance, which gives it a completely new attitude, is what you notice about it immediately from a visual standpoint. A stone guard and two LED light bars have also been added to the front bumper as additional reinforcement. However, the concept’s roof-mounted LED light strip is not included with the Sterrato. It gets thick side skirts, roof rails, bolt-on, tough fender flares at the front, and a redesigned diffuser with a better departure angle at the back.
Additionally new to the Huracan lineup is the satin-finished khaki paint colour, which is contrasted by red accents on the claddings and brake callipers. Although the inside hasn’t seen any significant cosmetic changes, the Sterrato now has new Alcantara Verde upholstery, updated touchscreen graphics, and unique off-road driving capabilities like a compass, geographic coordinate indicator, and steering angle indicator. It also receives a connected telemetry system that enables the driver to use a mobile app to track performance and analyse data.
