The Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato ‘Opera Unica’, the latest one-off from Sant’Agata
Inspired by the vibrant blues of Sardinia’s seas and skies, Lamborghini presents an ‘Opera Unica’ Huracán Sterrato: a one-off piece of art in a unique crystal-effect paint process created by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam department. Unveiled to Lamborghini guests at a VIP 60th anniversary dinner event in exclusive Porto Cervo, where the Lamborghini Lounge returns for the summer months, the one-off Huracán Sterrato also celebrates the anniversary year of Lamborghini; the brand’s iconic, vibrant colors; and the company’s exceptional expertise in creating unique hues and paint processes over decades.
The Huracán Sterrato Opera Unica exudes the inimitable, brave character of the super sports car that perfectly tackles the paved and unpaved roads of the Costa Smeralda, while its unique, hand-painted exterior takes inspiration from the marine-blue landscapes and rich colors of Sardinia. The three-color hand-painted process creates the crystal effect of frozen liquid: Blu Amnis is used as the first solid paint color, and then etched into by hand with a second Blu Grifo paint and a third color Blu Fedra, in a process taking over 370 hours.
“The Huracán Sterrato was born from challenging the expected, delivering a super sports car that goes beyond convention. The one-off Huracán Sterrato Opera Unica takes this to another level, and in Lamborghini tradition, draws attention and asks questions of it as an art form,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “Lamborghini is always touched by the beauty and colors of Sardinia, and this is the perfect opportunity to experiment with a new paint process, explore the possibilities of our Ad Personam personalization, and then present this special Sterrato to our clients and guests in the environment that inspired the blue crystal effect.”
The exterior of the “Opera Unica” is finished in matt black paint, to the roof, sills and front-light casings, front, and rear splitters, and fenders. Its muscular, enhanced wheel-arch protection is also painted matt black, setting off Morus 19” matt black rims. Inside, the Opera Unica one-off is as unique as the exterior: featuring exposed carbon fiber, the sports seats, door panels, and console are upholstered in Blu Delphinus leather; the dashboard in same-color specially-dyed Alcantara; and the steering wheel combines the two materials.
The lighter shade of Celeste Phoebe leather is used in complementary panels, piping, and embroidery including the Lamborghini logo, recalling the blue of the exterior and the ambiance of a maritime lifestyle. A seat-panel graphic is lasered in silver, and even the cover to the start-stop button on the center console is finished in the crystal effect of the exterior paint. Like all Huracán Sterrato cars to be produced, the interior carries a special plate denoting it as one of 1499 in a limited series, as well as special plates celebrating ‘Opera Unica Porto Cervo 2023’, finished in the crystal effect paint, and Lamborghini’s 60th anniversary.
Unveiled at the Lamborghini VIP client dinner in Cala di Volpe hotel, the Huracán Sterrato Opera Unica’s arrival was as spectacular as its crystal-blue paint: the 120 guests dining on Matsuhisa Nobu- cuisine in a sea-blue themed environment, were surprised and enthralled by the car’s fitting unveil on the waterside venue on a floating platform, to be presented by Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann. A crew of performers and dancers introduced the unveiling moment of the Opera Unica with a special video telling the creation process of the vehicle.
