  • Per the Italian luxury automotive brand, the Huracán Sterrato Concept is conceived, designed, and engineered to explore any terrain.

    “It all started from one of the first Huracán prototypes, chassis number 53,” said Lamborghini Motorsport Vice President Maurizio Reggiani. He was also the former Chief Technology Officer (CTO) during the development of the Sterrato Concept.

    “My team worked on that car to create a laboratory on wheels, installing off-road solutions with a higher ground clearance. The first time had the chance to drive it I immediately realized how much fun this unexpected super sports concept could be. After we built and developed a full prototype our management board was also convinced by the idea thanks to the emotions the car conjured. After all, the car was born on the Strada Bianca of Nardò, which is for Lamborghini off-track development what the Nürburgring ‘Green Hell’ is for racing,” added Reggiani.

    The 2019 Huracán Sterrato concept combined the power of the V10 5.2-liter engine, with the versatility of a car designed to guarantee maximum driving fun beyond the asphalt. The exterior made clear the Sterrato’s adventurous spirit, combined with the typical characteristics of a super sports car. Ground clearance was increased and the approach and departure angle improved. The track width was increased on both axles: wide-walled tires sat inside wider wheel arches with integrated air intakes, all of which contributed to the car’s commanding and adventurous stance.

    “Designing the Huracán Sterrato concept was fun from the first moment: it gave us a unique opportunity to push boundaries in a new way, translating our design DNA in unexpected proportions,” explained Lamborghini Head of Design Mitja Borkert.

    “Internally we were able to realize this concept and demonstrate not only how cool and brave the idea was, but its potential for production. Our stated aim was to design something distinctly different, for active, sporty people who are fun seekers and want to drive the world even beyond roads and race circuits. The final Sterrato is definitively a Lamborghini, just as the concept was from the very first glance, while at the same time propelling Lamborghini into a unique new territory,” Borkert added.

    The Huracán Sterrato Concept has wide tires with increased sidewalls. This design was specifically developed to improve grip and shock absorption. Meanwhile, its wide, rugged, open shoulder blocks promote self-cleaning of the wheels and provided excellent dirt-road surface adherence with improved traction and braking.

    The underbody and front frame of the Sterrato concept were reinforced with integrated aluminum elements protected by an aluminum bulkhead, the same material used for the side skirt reinforcements.

    Per Lamborghini, the Huracán Sterrato Concept is slated to be available in major markets next year.
