Off-road Bull: Lamborghini teases Huracan Sterrato

This is how discourse works in Italian: after the very asphalt-focused Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica, the sports car manufacturer from Sant'Agata Bolognese presents its matching counterpart. More precisely: the Huracán Sterrato trimmed for off-road. This, and not a bit different, is how you celebrate a V10 wedge before it is discontinued.

Lamborghini rides its Huracán quickly but steadily into the sunset - but in a big way: the "small" of the two sports cars in the portfolio of the team around designer Mitja Borkert has recently started to move off the beaten track. Just as the 2019 Huracán Sterrato show car had more than hinted at. In a recently published video, you can now see one of the current prototypes testing in Tuscany. Or should we say: having fun? In an unequal race, the Huracán competes against a professional mountain biker.

Who emerges victorious remains an open question. What is clear, however, is that the off-road Huracán fulfils all the promises of the study: rally headlights at the front, raised chassis, roof rails and widened mudguards attached with bolts. Oh yes, and we almost forgot the most important thing: Of course, the Sterrato also retains the wonderful naturally aspirated V10 engine of the already familiar versions. Lamborghini has not yet officially confirmed this, but judging by the sound of the engine in the video - and the company philosophy of the Italians - there can be no other option. By the way, when exactly it will arrive is still a secret.

Until the Huracán Sterrato is available, we'll just ride our bikes for a while. In Tuscany. And watch the testing.
