Last week, Lamborghini revealed rugged looking off-road capable Huracán Sterrato. Now, a new report suggest that it is going into production. As per Automobile Magazine, Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato could be launched in the year 2021 as limited-edition variant. Sources close to the development told the magazine that plan is yet to be finalized and will be between 500 and 1,000 units. Base price of the Huracán Sterrato is reported to be around €240,000. Company’s Chief Technical Officer, Maurizio Reggiani didn’t confirm plans for production but implied it is possible. He stated that “provisional business case suggests that we can build this car at a profit.”
Maurizio Reggiani said that to keep costs in check, Italian carmaker could build Sterrato-specific components out of a specially developed “lightweight synthetic material” which can be used in 3D printers. In other words, company won’t have to spend much money in developing the model as Lamborghini budget is quite tight. With addition of Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato in their lineup it is believed that it could juice Huracan sales as model ages. This point is quite important as it is reported that its replacement has been pushed back to 2024.
Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato Concept is based on Huracan Evo. It features a rugged exterior with underbody skid plates, aluminum-reinforced side skirts and extended fender flares. It also featured LED auxiliary lights, an additional 47 mm of ground clearance and 20-inch wheels that were wrapped in specially-developed tires. Power in the Huracán Sterrato comes from 5.2-liter V10 unit. It develops an output of 631hp and works in conjugation with seven-speed dual clutch gearbox and a standard all-wheel drive system.
