Lamborghini teases the off-road-ready Huracán Sterrato

The ‘all-terrain supercar’ is set to make its debut on November 30

Before the full-on transition to electric propulsion, several supercar manufacturers have gone buck-wild with their creations as a last-ditch effort to differentiate themselves, giving their low-slung, scrape-all-the-time, speed machines a lift. Just take a look at Porsche’s upcoming 911 Dakar.

Lamborghini has been working on a not-so-secret project in the same vein since 2019, called the Huracán Sterrato—with Sterrato meaning “dirt road” in Italian. And now, the concept is on the verge of turning into a reality.

The vehicle has yet to be unveiled, as it is set to debut on November 30, but after Porsche stole its thunder with the announcement of its off-road 911, this forced the Italian automaker to show its hand and (literally) take the wraps off.

For starters, it’s a lifted Huracán finished in matte-green paint with subtle red accents, with chunky black body cladding (with visible rivets) and a roof rack. It loses the concept’s roof-mounted LED lightbar, but gains front-mounted auxiliary headlights, a roof scoop for extra air intake, and a revised rear diffuser that should supposedly help with off-roading.

Other than that, Lamborghini is mum on the specs, besides the car retaining the V10 engine and the all-wheel drive system. It rides on Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain tires that wrap 19-inch wheels to make this one hell of a ride. Are you excited about the new generation of these “all-terrain” supercars?
