A new off-road sports car concept of Lamborghini

The idea of making a Lamborghini car that was able to cross the off-road terrain had long been sparked and its peak could be seen in the Lamborghini Urus figure today. While the first Lamborghini's SUV was made in the 1980s named the Lamborghini LM002 SUV.

Even a few years before, a Lamborghini's test driver Bob Wallace modified two models to create desert-going high performance sports cars, ie the Jarama Rally and Urraco Rally in the 1970s.

Sterrato is also equipped with wide shoulder blocks, underbody reinforcements, side skirts, protectors on the air intake and engine, mud guard made of protective composite to ensure the integrity of the body when used in off-road terrain. Lambhorghini said that the "protective composite" part made of carbon fiber and elastromeric resin which was resistant to rocks and gravel. Then there is another addition that is quite striking, namely the installation of the LED light bar on the roof rack and two other additional LEDs on the front body muzzle.

For the legs, this car uses a rim with a diameter of 20 inches that is different from the standard Huracán, and wrapped in tires that have a unique threads specifically made for off-road terrain. And to accommodate wider tires and tracks, Sterrato is equipped with bolt-on fenders that are equipped with an air intake.

As for the interior, Lamborghini says it will complete the Huracán Sterrato with titanium roll cage, as well as aluminum floors, and four-point seat belts with carbon. And Lamborghini's R & D Division also ensures that it will continue to make other innovations in the future. Unfortunately until now, Lamborghini has not provided an official statement when it will produce the Huracán Sterrato.
And if it is produced, it seems that this car is very suitable for the rich automotive enthusiasts who want to enjoy the sensation of driving on the off-road terrain by using Lamborghini supercars. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LAMBORGHINI | DIGITAL TRENDS]
