The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato made its world debut in Miami, Florida during the Art Basel festival. To introduce the rally-ready supercar to potential buyers in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region, the company displayed the machine in its floating saloon in Doha Bay in Qatar.
Lamborghini also changed the color of this Sterrato compared to the Miami one. This one has a Bianco Isi body with red and green stripes to evoke the Italian flag. Black fender flares and side sills contrast with the bright colors of the exterior. In comparison, the previous car wears a darker mix of Verde Gea and Bianco Phanes.
The presentation in Doha allowed potential customers to meet members of Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customization team to imagine the look of their Sterrato. Customers could choose from over 350 exterior paints and finishes. There was also 60 choices of leather coverings.
The Sterrato features a 1.7 inch (4.32 centimeter) suspension lift. The front track is 1.2 inches (3.05 centimeters) wider and the rear track is 1.3 inches (3.3 centimeters) wider. It rolls on 19-inch wheels with unique Bridgestone Dueler AT002 run-flat all-terrain tires. Driving modes gain a Rallye setting.
The engine is a 5.2-liter V10 developing 602 horsepower (449 kilowatts) and 413 pound-feet (560 Newton-meters) of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sends power to an all-wheel-drive system. The powertrain allows the car to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 162 mph (261 km/h).
Lamborghini gives the Sterrato a more rugged look to match its rally-inspired setup. Auxiliary lights are available for the nose, and buyers have several roof rack choices. Large fender flares and side sills give the machine a more muscular appearance. A roof-mounted scoop helps the engine breathe clean air when driving over dusty terrain.
Inside, the model is available with exclusive Verde Sterrato Alcantra upholstery. However, buyers have a full choice of other shades if that is what they prefer. The Sterrato gains instruments for off-road use like an inclinometer, pitch and roll indicator and steering angle indicator.
Lamborghini will manufacture 1,499 examples of the Sterrato worldwide. It will be the brand’s last model with an atmospheric engine without electric assistance. Deliveries will begin in February 2023. Pricing details are not yet available.
