Lamborghini introduced the Huracan Sterrato Concept back in 2019, and rumors soon started circulating that it would actually enter production. Three years later, a series of new spy shots show that the company is continuing to develop such a model.
The recent photos aren’t as cool as the previous ones, but they do capture a familiar-looking Huracan on horseback. The supercar sits high on its 20-inch wheels, and it’s hard to hide with the camouflage wrap, so Lamborghini didn’t even try it. Previous spy shots showed the car sporting a front brush guard, but that’s missing on this test vehicle. However, what do not miss are tires with larger sidewalls.
The Sterrato will be a special variant of the Evo, but will come with all-wheel drive and other off-road-oriented upgrades, such as a recalibrated gearbox. The two look very similar, but the Sterrato might get some design tweaks before its official debut. The rear view of the supercar is different, where Lamborghini installs a hood scoop attached to the engine cover grille.
We don’t know what engine the Sterrato will have, but it is certain that Lamborghini will also use a naturally aspirated V10 to power this Huracan variant. The increased ride height will include additional underbody protection, skid plates, mudguards, reinforced side skirts, and extra protection for the engine bay and air intakes.
Sterrato is a concept in production form, but there are some significant differences between the two. The concept uses fender flares mounted on a flared stance. Neither of these features was present on the test vehicle. However, this does not appear to be the final design. We have to wait for the reveal.
Lamborghini fans shouldn’t expect this to outsell the Urus any time soon. One earlier rumor suggested that the company was planning to produce 1,000 units or fewer. Lamborghini has yet to announce a debut date for its high-riding supercar. However, company CEO Stephan Winkelmann suggested the car could debut sometime in 2022, one of four models the company plans to launch this year. We are waiting for the invitation.
