Lamborghini Sterrato Concept transforms Huracan into off-road supercar

The concept features a taller ride height and lots of underbody protection.

Lamborghini has unveiled a unique concept, the Huracán Sterrato, that takes inspiration from the Urus SUV.

Designed for off-road driving, the Sterrato benefits from the Huracán's all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering. It adds modified suspension and a retuned torque vectoring system calibrated for low-adherence surfaces.

Ground clearance has been increased by 47mm, with a modest one-percent increase in the car's front approach angle and 6.5-percent increase in its rear departure angle. The wheel track has been widened by 30mm, with 20-inch wheels on balloon tires set into new widebody wheel arches.

Skid plates and aluminum reinforcements help protect underbody components and the side skirts, while protective composite bodywork includes stone-deflecting panels around the engine and air intakes.

"Lamborghini's R&D and design teams are constantly exploring new opportunities and delivering the unexpected as a core characteristic of our DNA, challenging possibilities while inspired by Lamborghini brand heritage," says Lamborghini CTO Maurizio Reggiani.

The company explored similar concepts in the 1970s, starting with the Jarama Rally in 1973 and the Urraco Rally in 1974.
