Go off-road in the new Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato

If you have ever wanted to take a Lamborghini supercar on an off-road adventure (and who hasn’t, quite frankly), your only option is the Urus SUV. Yes, the Urus is a capable SUV yet lacks the panache of an exotic coupe, so Lamborghini now offers the Huracán Sterrato, which could be described as a supercar with beefier tires and a lift kit. Or, perhaps, it’s a modern reinterpretation of the Lancia Stratos.

Lamborghini officially unveiled the Huracán Sterrato and described it as “the first super sports car designed for maximum driving pleasure even away from the asphalt on loose or dirt surfaces, reinterpreting the very concept of sportiness and emphasizing the brand principles of brave, authentic and unexpected.”

Bumpy trails and other bottoming-out hurdles are made easier due to increasing ground clearance by 44 mm (1.7 inches) compared to the Huracán EVO. Suspension travel is greater too, and the track widths were also bumped up — the front by 30 mm (1.2 inches) and the rear by 34 mm (1.3 inches). It rides on 19-inch rims wrapped in custom-engineered Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tires, 235/40 R19 at the front and 285/40 R19 at the rear; run-flat technology that allows the Lambo to go 80 km (49 miles) at 80 kph with zero pressure. Hopefully you can find a shop that carries Lamborghini tires within that distance.
