Lamborghini’s first off-road supercar is finally here

It’s been the subject of rumours for months, but the first off-road supercar from Lamborghini, the Huracan Sterrato, is finally here.

Well, sort of.

Lamborghini hasn’t officially revealed the new model, or even released any firm details.

Instead, the off-road supercar is being teased in a video called Beyond the Concrete. Take a look below.

The short clip features the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato racing a mountain bike to an Italian villa along gravel tracks.

It’s basically a minute straight of the camouflaged supercar getting sideways and throwing up clouds of gravel dust.

Accompanying it is a set of shadowy, grainy photos that give us our best look at the Huracan Sterrato yet.

However, we’ve tinkered with them a little bit so you can get a slightly better look at it.

So, what is the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato?

Based on an off-road Huracan concept from 2019, the Sterrato is essentially a Huracan that’s been lifted and widened to make it capable of hitting the dirt.

The most obvious change, aside from the higher ride height, is its bolted-on plastic wheel arches.

There are chunkier black plastic side skirts with integrated air intakes, too.

At the front of the Huracan, there is now a pair of spotlights bolted to the front bumper, giving it some real rally car vibes.

Two other key differences can be seen on the roof.

There’s a set of roof rails up there to mount roof racks to – just imagine this with a storage pod on top of it.

There’s also a roof scoop for sucking clean air from higher up into the engine.

While Lamborghini hasn’t confirmed any details, expect upgraded suspension and off-road capable tires to feature.

As you can clearly hear in the teaser vid, the Huracan’s V10 is still there.

It’s likely to still feature all-wheel drive like many other Huracan models, but again, that’s yet to be confirmed.

The Huracan Sterrato won’t be the first Lambo with off-road pedigree.

It follows in the footsteps of the LM002 and Urus SUVs.

At this stage, reports suggest the Huracan Sterrato could be here by the year’s end.

Stay tuned for more details – this is going to be one of the most unique supercars to hit the market this year.
