    Lamborghini has begun road-testing prototypes of the Sterrato off-road supercar. A Sterrato (Italian for ‘dirt road’) concept previewing the idea was shown back in 2019 as a more rugged version of the Huracan

    • Lamborghini had showcased a Hurcan-based Sterrato off-road concept in 2019
    • Spied test mule has jacked up ride height and several off-road enhancements
    • Lamborghini could be building a production version of the Sterrato concept 

    At the time, a Lamborghini spokesperson said to our sister publication Autocar UK that despite at least one functioning car having been built, there were no plans to put the model into production. Recent sighting of a prototype suggests it may eventually be offered to customers after all.

    Visually, the Sterrato has a far higher ground clearance than the Huracan Evo. It has been fitted with an air intake on the roof as well as a set of roof rails. The front bumper has also been reinforced with a stone guard and an LED light bar fitted to the bonnet. The concept's extended wheel arches could be 3D printed were the car to enter production, as hinted by Lamborghini earlier.

    The original Sterrato concept was powered by the same 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 as the Huracan Evo, producing 631hp and sending power to both axles via a seven-speed automatic gearbox. It is expected that a customer version of the Sterrato would retain the Huracan's rear-wheel steering set-up, but gain an adapted version of the Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) drive mode system that's more effective at finding grip on low-traction surfaces.

    It is currently unclear if the Sterrato will be a one-off project, like the Aventador J and SC20 roadsters, or built in greater numbers as a limited-run series similar to the Sián FKP 37.

    Lamborghini has previously committed to at least two new product launches in 2022, with updates for both Huracan and Urus SUV expected.
