Is The Lamborghini Sterrato The Best Version Of The Huracan?
The Sterrato, Lamborghini’s equivalent of Porsche’s 911 Dakar, features chunky tires, plastic cladding, spot lamps, roof rack, and a raised ride height. Notably, it incorporates a specially-calibrated all-wheel-drive system, intended for navigating more challenging and unstable terrains, unlike the environments where the Huracán typically excels.
The Sterrato, whose name translates to “dirt road” in Italian, holds significance for Lamborghini as it marks the swan song for the company’s 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 engine, introduced in 2003.
Despite its potent 602bhp from the 5.2-liter V10 engine, the Sterrato is surprisingly the slowest Huracán model to date. Its all-wheel drive configuration limits its top speed to a “modest” 162 mph and adds 47 kg of weight. Nonetheless, the Sterrato still accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in a commendable 3.4 seconds.
