Rambo Lambo, part 2? Sterrato is the Huracán that can
If life is all about the journey rather than the destination, then the chances are the new Huracán Sterrato will please thrill-seekers like no Lamborghini before it.
Based on the Huracán and billed as a rally-ready, off-roadable rocket, it’s quite the contrast to the company’s only other car for the great outdoors, the LM002, known as the Rambo Lambo.
The V-10-powered super coupe has its ground clearance hiked by 44 mm (1.7 inches), suspension travel is increased, the track is widened by 30 mm (1.2 inches) at the front and 34 mm (1.3 inches) at the rear, and aluminum underbody bash plates are bolted on for go-anywhere ability. Bridgestone Dueler T002 run-flat all-terrain tires are fitted to 19-inch rims, and carbon-ceramic discs with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear units provide stopping power.
The 600-hp, 5.2-liter V-10 engine sends drive to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The rear differential features a mechanical lock to aid traction on loose surfaces, while there are three driving modes: Strada for the road, Sport to spice things up, and Rally for low-grip conditions. On dry asphalt the Huracán Sterrato will hit 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and top out at 160 mph.
Extended wheel arches, sill protectors, a hefty rear diffuser, and an air scoop atop the rear engine cover are all finished in a moody matte black. Roof rails and LED spot lamps complete the Lambo-for-the-zombie-apocalypse look. Inside the Alcantara Verde–trimmed cabin, there’s a new Human Machine Interface (HMI) with digital instrumentation that includes off-road essentials such as an inclinometer with pitch and roll indicator, a compass, and GPS location. The Huracán Sterrato will be limited to 1499 units and production starts in February 2023.
Although Lamborghini has been teasing the Sterrato—or Rambo Lambo part two, as some wags have been referring to it—for some time, its official unveiling follows in the tire tracks of Porsche’s new 911 Dakar, proving that off-road adventures are no longer the preserve of traditional Sport Utility Vehicles.
