Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Arrives In Qatar Wearing the Colors of the Italian Flag

1 min read

The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato made its world debut in Miami, Florida, during the Art Basel festival. In order to present the rally-ready supercar to potential buyers in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa), the company showcased the engine in a floating lounge in Qatar’s Doha Bay.

Lamborghini also changed the color of this Sterrato from the one in Miami. This one is Bianco filled with red and green stripes to evoke the Italian flag. Black fender flares and side sills contrast the bright tones on the exterior. In comparison, the previous car sported a darker mix of Verde Gea and Bianco Phanes.

The presentation in Doha allows potential customers to meet with members of the Ad Personam Lamborghini personalization team to envision the look of their Sterrato. The client has over 350 exterior paints and finishes to choose from. There are also 60 choices of leather seats.

The Strato has 1.7 inches (4.32 centimeters) of suspension lift. The front track is 1.2 inches (3.05 cm) wider, and the rear track has increased by 1.3 inches (3.3 cm). It rides on 19-inch wheels with unique Bridgestone Dueler AT002 all-terrain run-flat tires. Driving mode gets Rally settings.

The engine is a 5.2-liter V10 that produces 602 horsepower (449 kilowatts) and 413 pound-feet (560 Newton-meters) of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox sends power to the all-wheel drive system. The powertrain takes the car to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 162 mph (261 kph).

Lamborghini gave the Sterrato a more rugged look to suit the rally-inspired setup. Auxiliary lights are available for the nose, and buyers have several choices of roof racks. Large fender flares and side sills give the machine a more muscular appearance. A roof-mounted scoop helps the machine breathe clean air when driving over dusty terrain.

Inside, this model is available with exclusive Verde Sterrato Alcantra upholstery. That said, shoppers have plenty of other color options if that’s their thing. The Sterrato gets instruments for off-road use such as an inclinometer, pitch and roll indicators and a steering angle indicator.

Lamborghini will make 1,499 units of the Sterrato worldwide. This will be the brand’s last model with a non-electrically assisted naturally aspirated engine. Deliveries will start in February 2023. Pricing details are not yet available.
