Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Teaser Shows Off-Roader Playing In The Sand

1 min read

The latest teaser for the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato shows a more powerful supercar cruising along unpaved roads and along beautiful beaches. The video gives a good look at the upcoming model but gives no hint as to when the model will debut.

Compared to the regular Huracan, the Sterrato has a higher ride height and some significant body modifications. Two sticks of light stick to the edge of the nose. The fender flares have black cladding. Roof racks make it possible to transport equipment. The roof-mounted scoop directs air to the engine.

There are no interior images of Sterrato. We don’t expect any significant changes compared to the standard Huracan. Lamborghini might use some new upholstery or trim.

The powertrain for the Sterrato remains a mystery. It’s unclear if the company will massage the V10 engine for additional power. Given the focus of the off-road model, tweaks to the all-wheel-drive system to provide more traction are a possibility.

The Sterrato concept debuted in 2019. It boasts a suspension seat 1.85 inches (47 millimeters) taller than the standard Huracan. The front and rear tracks are 1.18 inches (30 millimeters) wider. The company added aluminum body reinforcements to the front and strengthened the side skirts. Slip plates under the nose and tail protect the mechanical components.

Inside, the concept has a titanium roll cage, aluminum floor panels and seats with carbon fiber shells.

When the Sterrato concept debuted, Lamborghini said it was just one time. However, a recent teaser suggests the company now has different plans. We don’t know exactly when the production version debuts but expect the unveiling to happen before the end of the year.

The Huracan range is nearing the end of its production. Lamborghini is working on a successor. According to recent rumors, the new model may sport a hybrid-assisted twin-turbo V8, rather than the naturally aspirated V10 from existing vehicles. The new engine is expected to spin up to 10,000 rpm.
