When Lamborghini showed us the Huracan Sterrato concept renderings back in 2019 we thought it was just a fun design exercise which would never see production. How gloriously wrong we were (perhaps).
In this latest teaser video from everyone's favourite spaceship manufacturer we see a slightly altered, though essentially similar, version of the 630 horsepower rally car from a couple of years ago racing against a mountain biker in what looks to be Tuscany.
Gone is the roof-mounted light bar though the roof rails remain and a large air scoop has been added at the top of what would be the Sterrato's rear window. That's still covered by perennially-badass louvres and the rally lights mounted above the front bumper have been carried over as well.
Skid plates are present to protect the Sterrato's undercarriage while raised suspension, fender flares and chunkier all-terrain tires enhance the V10 off-roader's abilities when the asphalt ends.
Speaking of V10s, the Sterrato makes use of the 630+ horsepower variant found in the Huracan Evo with Lamborghini's all-wheel drive and rear-steer systems tuned for off-road performance.
There's still no official confirmation that the Sterrato will go into production but Lamborghini promised a pair of new Huracan variants by the end of 2022 with the rear-wheel drive Technica serving as the first. It's looking extremely likely that the Sterrato will be the second of those models. Pure bedroom wall poster material, as usual.
