Lamborghini has given us our first proper look at the upcoming, high-riding version of its Huracan supercar.

    Dubbed the Huracan Sterrato, this all-terrain Lamborghini supercar appears inspired by the wild 2019 Sterrato concept.

    It also looks to be conceptually similar to the Porsche 911 Dakar that’s been spied testing.

    An all-black Sterrato prototype was recently spied testing, and a camouflaged prototype is depicted in Lamborghini’s teaser video uploaded to YouTube.

    The Italian supercar automaker previewed this rally-inspired car racing a mountain bike along windy, gravelly roads.

    In the video the Huracan Sterrato is covered in a camouflage wrap that has the words ‘brave’, ‘authentic’ and ‘unexpected’ plastered all around it.

    Pointing out the obvious, it’s clear the suspension has been raised (the concept was 47mm taller than stock), and it looks like the camouflaged prototype rides on different wheels to the rear-wheel drive Huracan EVO.

    Like the Sterrato concept, there are two small light bars at the front of the car, roof rails, and wheel arch extensions. On the roof there’s a roof scoop as well.

    Lamborghini hasn’t released any official details about the Huracan Sterrato thus far, but in the video the car’s V10 engine can be heard on full song.

    It’s not clear what changes Lamborghini will make to the 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 powertrain in the Huracan, if any. For context, in the Huracan STO this engine produces 470kW of power and 600Nm of torque.

    It’s possible the Huracan Sterrato will feature a retuned all-wheel drive system to work better on gravel and snow, like the concept.

    It’s unclear when Lamborghini plans to reveal the Huracan Sterrato, and for now it’s saying to “stay tuned”.

    Lamborghini isn’t alone in giving its sports car a rally-inspired makeover. A Porsche 911 has been spied testing numerous times with a taller ride height, which could preview a production car potentially dubbed the 911 Dakar.
