Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato shows its off-road-friendly design

The all-terrain Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato is nearly ready to make its debut. The supercar’s final (and most extreme) evolution will break cover on November 30 in Florida, and a batch of photos showing the coupe without camouflage reveals how designers SUV-ified a supercar.

We’ve never seen anything quite like the Huracán Sterrato; at least not in showrooms. Lamborghini previewed the model in June 2019 by unveiling a close-to-production concept, and it’s clear that the overall design hasn’t changed much in the past three years. Sitting far higher than the average supercar, the Sterrato gets a pair of LED driving lights up front, wheel arch flares, specific side skirts, and roof rails. These styling cues were previewed by the concept, but the air scoop seemingly connected to the engine bay is a new addition to the look.

It’s reasonable to assume that there’s much more going on than meets the eye. We’re impatient to find out how Lamborghini modified the Huracán’s suspension system for off-road use, for example. And, there’s no word yet on what the model is powered by. Our crystal ball tells us it’s a version of the standard car’s naturally-aspirated, 5.2-liter V10 but it’s too early to provide horsepower and torque figures.

The Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato is scheduled to make full its debut at Art Basel show in Miami, Florida, on November 30, 2022. It will be the last evolution of the Huracán; its successor is due out in the coming years. Official details remain few and far between, but an unofficial report claims the upcoming new model will land with an 850-horsepower gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain built around a twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

The birth of a new segment?

The idea of a supercar that keeps going after the pavement ends is unconventional; for decades, supercars were bound to roads while SUVs and pickup trucks were designed to go off-road. There have been a handful of notable exceptions to this rule, the mega-obscure Mega Track built in France in the 1990s comes to mind, but the idea didn’t catch on until recently. Volkswagen-owned Italdesign Giugiaro alchemized the Lamborghini Gallardo into an off-roader called Parcour at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and Audi followed-up with the Nanuk concept later that year. Fast-forward to 2022 and Porsche wants a slice of this segment, too: it’s preparing a 911 on stilts called Dakar.
