Lamborghini has taken wraps off its latest Huracan iteration, the off-roading Sterrato.
The Italian automaker’s latest creation is said to be all-terrain-worthy, set for launch later this month. Not much of the car is known yet, but official images show a host of utilitarian fittings over the standard Huracan body. Upgrades include a roof scoop air intake, additional front lights, roof rails, side and rear skid plates, and body kits that look like they’re from a Dakar stage, apart from of course the raised ride height. About time they field the Sterrato in WRC!
The Sterrato’s powerplant will remain the same 5.2L naturally aspirated V10, albeit with slightly tuned power state figures. Also expected is the usual 7-speed dual clutch transmission from its cousins. One might also see other off-road gizmos like 4WD and multiple ride modes in the Huracan Sterrato.
The Huracan Sterrato could very well be Lamborghini’s last dance for NA V10 engines, the gracious sound of which is as recognisable as ever. The Sant’Agata Bolognese supercar maker has already stopped the Aventador’s production and with it, it’s godly NA V12. The Huracan Tecnica was launched recently, powered by the same 5.2L V10, putting out 640HP and 565Nm.
The Huracan Sterrato will be launched at the Art Basel in Miami, on November 30.
