V10, 640-horsepower, supercar, and off-road are words that are not often seen together. But, Lamborghini wants to prove otherwise with their new concept – Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato.
This is a new concept car from the Italian manufacturer which might just be the right supercar for Indian roads. When we say off-roader, it most certainly is no SUV. But it can easily take in bumps and potholes with its 47mm higher ride height.
Looking underneath the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato
Underneath the new appearance, we can still see the fundamentals of the Huracan EVO. This means the car is running on a 5.2-liter V10 pumping out 640 horses. It also gets a four-wheel steering and torque vectoring all-wheel drive. It also gets the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) from the EVO. This controls various features of the car like four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, torque vectoring, and more, using predictive logic.
The biggest change is in its ride height. This now allows the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato to a 1-percent steeper approach angle and a 6.5-percent improvement in departure angle. And yes, we are talking about the approach and descent angles in a supercar. Lamborghini has really out done themselves this time. The car also gets 20 inch wheels with chunky off road tires.
The Huracan Sterrato also gets plenty of cosmetic and functional changes to live up to off-road standards. This includes under body protection and skid plates. The skid plates also double up as rear diffuser. We can also see carbon fiber mud guards, roof-mounted LED light bar, and LED bumper lights.
Lamborghini did not stop at just that. The interiors also get souped up. It now also features a full titanium roll cage, carbon fiber bucket seats, aluminium floor panels, and four point harness.
Will the Huracan Sterrato ever make it to the production line? We don’t see why not. Most of the modifications on the Sterrato are not overly far fetched and quite achievable. Lamborghini has also had a brief stint in the world of the rally before. But, chances are the Sterrato will never make it production and will only be a one-off concept. Only time can confirm this.
