Automobili Lamborghini presented the new Huracán Sterrato at Art Basel, Miami Beach. The Huracán Sterrato is the Italian automaker’s first super sports car designed for maximum driving pleasure on loose or dirt surfaces.
Dirt road looks
Outside, the Sterrato has an increased ground clearance of 44 mm compared with the Huracán EVO to ensure greater suspension travel, as has the front (+30 mm) and rear (+34 mm) track widths. Furthermore, in addition to protecting the car body, the aluminum front underbody protection, the reinforced sills, the rear diffuser and wheel arches all emphasize its muscularity. The classic air intake located on the rear hood helps supply the engine with clean air when driving on dusty tracks.
Exclusive interior styling
Inside, the Sterrato features exclusive Alcantara Verde Sterrato upholstery which reflect the “feel like a pilot” philosophy traditionally adopted for the Huracán line, which places the driver at the center of the passenger compartment for the ultimate driving experience and absolute control of all the car’s features. The Human Machine Interface (HMI) has new graphics and special driving features; for the first time, the instruments feature a digital inclinometer with pitch and roll indicator, a compass, geographic coordinate indicator, and steering angle indicator.
The new Huracán Sterrato offers almost unlimited possibilities for customizing the appearance of the car: thanks to the Lamborghini Ad Personam program, customers can choose from 350 external colors and over 60 colors for the leather and Alcantara interiors.
The Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato comes with a 5.2-liter V10 engine with maximum power output of 449 kW and 560 Nm of torque (at 6500 rpm), combined with 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and electronically controlled all-wheel drive with rear mechanical self-locking differential. Lamborghini claims the Huracán Sterrato accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 260 km/h.
The car is fitted with brakes with aluminum fixed monoblock calipers with six pistons (front) and four pistons (rear) and ventilated and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic discs with 380 mm diameter and 38 mm thickness at the front and 356 mm diameter and 32 mm thickness at the rear.
It comes with 19-inch rims fitted exclusively with custom-engineered Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres which measure 235/40 R19 at the front and 285/40 R19 at the rear, incorporating run-flat technology. These bespoke Bridgestone tyres have been designed to match 100% car DNA, including an innovative pattern design and a cutting edge compound which provide a perfect grip both on gravel and tarmac while keeping an excellent handling and high speed performance.
The limited-edition production of 1499 units will start in February 2023.
