Embracing off-road adventures, the 2023 Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato breaks away from the usual tarmac journey.

The Huracán Sterrato represents a Safari iteration of the original Huracán supercar. Equipped with a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 engine producing 602 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque, this variant matches the performance of the initial Huracán released in 2014. Power is distributed to all four wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, enabling a swift zero to 60 mph acceleration in only 3.4 seconds, ultimately reaching a top speed of 160 mph.

Lamborghini has specially engineered the Sterrato to adapt the supercar for off-road environments. Boasting a 1.7-inch higher ground clearance than the Huracán Evo, it features enhanced suspension travel. Additionally, the front and rear track widths have been increased, while the underbody, sills, and rear diffuser have been reinforced for added durability. The front bumper now houses a pair of aggressive LED driving lights, complementing the usual headlights of the Huracán.

By incorporating a mechanical self-locking differential at the rear, Lamborghini ensures peak performance on varied surfaces. In addition to the standard Strada and Sport drive modes of the Huracán, the Sterrato introduces a new Rally mode. This mode optimizes the all-wheel-drive system for low-grip situations, such as driving on gravel, dirt, and sand. To support this rugged activity, an air intake mounted high on the rear hood allows the engine to breathe clean air, especially on dusty trails.

The pumped wheel arches boast heavy cladding as expected, concealing Bridgestone Dueler AT002 all-terrain tires. These tires are equipped with run-flat technology, allowing the vehicle to travel at 50 mph for 50 miles without air. To ensure efficient braking both on and off the road, large carbon-ceramic brakes are installed at the front and rear.

Internally, the off-road variant features distinct Alcantara Verde Sterrato upholstery and other elements tailored for the rugged lifestyle. The dashboard now incorporates a digital inclinometer for indicating pitch and roll angles. Additionally, there’s a compass and geographic coordinate display to navigate desolate terrains effectively. To keep you informed, there’s a steering angle indicator to monitor the movement of the front wheels.

The Safari design has always been an entertaining one, and it’s fantastic to witness Lamborghini implementing it on a genuine high-performance supercar. The production of the Huracán Sterrato will commence in February 2023, limited to just 1,499 units. If your dream has been to push an Italian supercar on rough terrain, this is the perfect opportunity. Hurry to your local dealership before all units are reserved.
