The Huracan Sterrato concept by Automobili Lamborghini conquers new territory

The Huracan Sterrato is Automobili Lamborghini’s way of exploring new horizons with its unconventional concept, based on the V10 Huracan, the Sterrato draws on Lamborghini’s off-road expertise that is illustrated in the Urus Super SUV, creating a sense of ‘fun to drive off-road’ and, a change of technology to create a super sports car for challenging environments.

The model concept is based on the Huracan EVO including the same 5.2 liter naturally- aspirated engine producing 640hp. The Huracan EVO’s LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Vericolo Integrata) has predictive logic, and this system integration manages the four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, modified suspension and torque vectoring, and system has more calculated guess of the driver to ensure perfect driving dynamics. Adjusted for off-road driving which includes low-adherence surfaces, and tuned to provide optimum traction and acceleration, the LDVI system in the Sterrato provides advanced rear-wheel-drive behavior, producing more torque together with additional stabilization during oversteer.

The brand has already explored the potential of combining Lamborghini’s high performance and off-road capabilities with the Lamborghini Jarama and Urraco during the 1970s.Bob Wallace Lamborghini’s test driver had tuned the two models in order to create a desert-going high-performance sports car, The Jarama Rally from 1973 and the Urraco Rally from 1974.
