Lamborghini Aventador Sterrato Joins Huracan Sterrato in V12 Off-Road Rendering

Earlier today, Lamborghini released the full details of the production Huracan Sterrato, which we had already seen without camo. The go-anywhere V10 beast is many things, from Sant’Agata Bolognese’s first lifted two-door to (probably) the final Huracan version and Lamborghini’s last combustion-only supercar. So, why not base such a wild-side special on an Aventador? While we’re grateful for the choice the Italians made, some people simply want the even more extravagant show an Aventador Sterrato would deliver. Well, here we are, discussing a rendering of the latter.

Compared to the Huracan Evo, which is the facelifted version of the Huracan LP 610-4 that replaced the Gallardo back in 2014, the Sterrato sits 1.7 inches (44 mm) higher. It gets extra suspension travel, which is likely what led to the extended tracks. We also have all-terrain tires and a reworked Integrated Vehicle Dynamics system allowing the vehicle to fully exploit the new hardware.

The Aventador Sterrato in 2D

Returning to the Aventador Sterrato affair, we understand why Estonian digital artist Siim Parn (aka spdesignsest) would pixel-paint such a model. For the record, he chose the final Aventador Ultimae model as the starting point.

Aside from the reason mentioned in the intro, the V12 heart of the Aventador is the most potent engine in Lamborghini’s DNA, while this was also the type of powerplant used by super-SUV pioneer that was the LM002 built between 1986 and 1993—while we’re talking renderings, here’s an LM002 6×6 hanging out in Miami, where Lamborghini chose to unveil the Huracan Sterrato.

Now, most one-offs and few-offs that Lamborghini builds are based on the Aventador (here are some recent spyshots of the Aventador’s sucessor), so why did the carmaker choose the Huracan for this one? It all has to do with the very essence of the Sterrato, which involves a playful character.

The whole idea behind this machine is to have as much fun behind the wheel as possible, on any sort of terrain, asphalt included, rather than simply rely on the otherwise mega performance numbers to get your kicks. And the Huracan is the lighter, smaller car, so it’s easier to chuck around, while also offering superior visibility.

Of course, with the level of insanity that social media builds have reached these days, it wouldn’t surprise us to see somebody Sterrato the hell out of an Aventador. But we think Lamborghini would be fine with that, since the Italians have always shown an open attitude towards custom projects, as long as these keep the spirit of the car intact—Kiwi pro drifter Mad Mike Whiddett’s Huracan drift car comes to mind here.

The specs of the Huracan Sterrato

Now, we owe you some tech deets. The track is 1.2 inches larger up front and 1.3 inches at the back. The jacked-up Lambo talks to the driving surface via 19-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Dueler AT002 all-terrain run-flat tires that were custom-made for this vehicle. These still have a relatively low profile (40), but the extra sidewall will come in handy when venturing off the asphalt, as you should.

Stopping power is delivered via 15-inch rotors and six-piston calipers for the front axle, while the rear one features 14-inch discs with four-piston grabbers.

That air scoop on the roof is there to feed the naturally aspirated V10 with fresh air, while the air filter has also been reworked. And, as you may have guessed by now, the Sterrato was built for going fast on irregular surfaces rather than tackling all-out rugged terrain.

The V10’s 602 horsepower/610 PS (449 kilowatts) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) of torque push the power to all four wheels (obviously!) via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and a mechanical locking rear differential. The 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) time sits at 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 162 mph (260 km/h). Sure, other Huracans will get ahead on asphalt, but we guarantee thery’re not even close to this one on other types of surfaces.

Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato vs. Porsche 911 Dakar

Cannibalization with the Porsche 911 Dakar? We’ve already discussed that and it’s not going to happen. These are very different animals. The Porsche is a sports car that seems prepared for even wilder rugged terrain ventures, while the Lamborghini supercar is not just quicker, but also has a naturally aspirated growl, a trait that’s only getting rarer nowadays.

Pricing for the Huracan Sterrato will be announced closer to its production start date (February 2023). However, if you’re looking for a deal, this would involve the very act of grabbing the supercar, as only 1,499 units are set to be built.

And you can expect the configurations to vary quite a bit. Using the carmaker’s Ad Personam program, buyers can choose between 350 exterior shades and 65 interior colors.

A bonus livery pack for the Sterrato

There’s also a livery pack, which includes the number 63 to celebrate the automaker’s birth year. Now, you may be curious to see how this looks over a less extroverted color like Bianco Phanes (a really fancy white). You’ll get your answer in the Instagram post at the bottom of the story, which comes from none other than Lamborghini design boss Mitja Borkert.
