The Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato Concept is what an off-road version of the Huracán would look like if such a thing existed… It does. It’s called the Urus.
We can’t help but think that this concept is what Lamborghini should have presented before launching the Lambo Urus. This would have whetted our appetites something fierce prior to imagining how mental a Lamborghini SUV would actually look like. Having said that, we love the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato Concept.
This off-road Huracán is based on Huracán EVO, or the latest iteration of the Italian supercar company’s hyper-popular and successful entry-level offering. It features all of its on-road go-fast bits including its 640-horsepower 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine and its LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) with predictive logic to control the AWD and four-wheel steering.
The LDVI has been modified to manipulate the modified suspension and oversized wheels and tires. The Huracán Sterrato Concept’s wheel track is 30mm wider, with 20-inch wheels and off-road tires and features 47mm more ground clearance than the regular Huracán. As this “thing” is designed to leave the pavement, it is fitted with underbody reinforcements, including a rear skid plate that doubles as a diffuser, aluminum skid plates and reinforced side skirts.
The cabin features a lightweight titanium roll cage, four-point seatbelts, carbon bi-shell sports seats, and aluminum floor panels. Ready for action!
To demonstrate the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato Concept’s newfound calling, it includes a roof-mounted LED light bar and LED bumper lights. We seriously doubt Lamborghini will build and sell such a car. If so, what would be the use? Is Lambo thinking about joining the WRC? Participating in desert rallyes? Again, it is doubtful however this is not the first a Lamborghini car is gifted with off-road capabilities. Back in the 1970s, Bob Wallace modified a Jarama and Urraco and made them into desert-going high performance sports cars.
Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, said: “Lamborghini’s R&D and design teams are constantly exploring new opportunities and delivering the unexpected as a core characteristic of our DNA, challenging possibilities while inspired by Lamborghini brand heritage.”
We say why not?
