Matters 8 Lambo

Not content with riding on the crest of a wave of circuit racing success, Lamborghini has made its off-road racing ambitions clear with this Huracán Sterrato concept.

Sterrato, literally translated to ‘Dirt’, is by far the most bonkers iteration of Lambo’s best-selling Huracán coupé yet. Claimed to be the first genuine off-road supercar, the concept has been created after Lamborghini’s engineers developed a fascination with off-road racing having worked on the recent Urus SUV – which itself is due to form the basis of a one-make rallycross-style racing series in 2020.

The Sterrato has been raised by 47mm over the standard road car and has a wider track, balloon tyres and a full complement of underbody protection. There’s also heavy duty composite bodywork and LED floodlights.

Lamborghini does have a history of off-road oddities. Its test driver Bob Wallace modified both the Jarama and Urraco models into desert rally machines in 1973 and ’74 respectively.

This new one’s maybe not up to the Dakar just yet, but we have seen stranger things.
