Lamborghini has officially presented its off-road model Huracan Sterrato, which is also the last car of this company that is driven exclusively by an internal combustion engine. The presentation of the "raised" Huracan in Miami is the culmination of a months-long campaign and the publication of photos of this car in action.
The Sterrato has been raised by 4.4 centimeters compared to the Huracan Evo, which allows for more suspension travel, and has also received an improved version of the Integrated Vehicle Dynamics system to make the most of it.
Total ground clearance is estimated to be between 170 and 180 millimeters.
A brand-new Rally mode
New calibrations are also available for Sport driving modes, as well as a brand-new Rally mode designed for driving on low-grip terrain.
“With the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Sterrato, we have uniquely combined the driving experience of a true super sports car and the fun of driving a rally car,” Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini’s CTO, said in a statement.
“Lamborghini cars always deliver emotion: the Sterrato delivers a new degree of driving thrills”. In addition to being taller, the Huracan Sterrato is also slightly wider. The distance between the wheels has been increased by 30 mm in the front and 34 mm in the back, fender extensions have been fixed, and additional lights have been installed on the bumper.
There are supports on the roof. The car has been given aluminum underbody protection, side skirts have been reinforced, and there are 19 rims with a special set of Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tires designed to provide optimal performance on gravel and asphalt.
They are equipped with runflat technology so that the car can travel 80 km without tire pressure. The new Rally driving mode is used in low-grip conditions, while the roof-mounted intake ensures cleaner air on dusty tracks.
The Sterrato is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that develops 602 hp and 565 Nm of torque and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 3.4 seconds, while the maximum speed is electronically limited to 260 km/h.
Power is transmitted to all four wheels. Lamborghini has not released photos of the interior, but it is covered in special Alcantara, the touchscreen has new graphics, and the interior also has special digital dials and indicators and a compass. Only 1,499 units will be produced, but Lamborghini has not announced the price yet.
