In July this year, Lamborghini confirmed it was officially working on a bolder version of the Huracan with the release of revealed teaser images. The overall concept for the vehicle and its name will be shared with the Huracan Sterrato concept launched in 2019 and we have new spy photos showing the development progress made by the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based company so far.
This high-riding Lambo was caught testing on public roads with almost no camouflage. There’s still some black band covering the minuscule exterior, though, overall, there’s nothing to hide the design. This off-road inspired supercar uses 20-inch wheels with winter tires with high traction. There’s a large hood scoop at the rear which hints at possible adjustments to the powertrain.
Based on the Huracan Evo, the Huracan Sterrato will have a few hardware modifications compared to the donor model. This includes a raised suspension that can accommodate large tires with thicker sidewalls. Power from the V10 engine behind the seats will be channeled to all four wheels and there may be a new driving mode to better reflect the off-road gen of the Huracan Sterrato.
If the Sterrato concept is anything but – and we have reason to believe it – we can expect the production model to be 1.85 inches (47 millimeters) taller than the standard Huracan. The concept vehicle on which it is based has a 640-horsepower version of the brand’s V10 engine and an AWD system equipped with torque vectoring and all-wheel steering. We believe most of these specifications will be carried over to the models that will be available to regular customers.
Speaking of sales, the news circulating is that Lamborghini has plans to produce only 1,000 units of the high-riding supercar. The company hasn’t announced a debut yet, though, judging by the recently released teaser images, it’s highly likely that it could launch before the end of the year.
