Could the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato actually go into production?
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you will know that Lamborghini unveiled a one off rally spec Huracan, named the Sterrato.
This concept is based on the Huracan Evo but fitted with off road tyres, a skid plate, flared fenders and an extra 1.9 inches of ground clearance.
A report from Automobile Magazine now suggests that this insane creation could in fact go into production by 2021. It would of course be released as a limited production run and would probably be the final hurrah for the Huracan.
Sources told the magazine that we could expect between 500 and 1,000 units which isn't very many at all. But, seeing how Lamborghini extended the production of the SVJ suggests there could end up being more.
Prices would reportedly start around £213,524 ($270,891) which sounds a little cheap to me as a new Huracan Evo costs £206,000. That's only a £7,000 price difference – the price of some paint options.
This isn't definitely confirmed as the Chief Technical Officer of Lamborghini, Maurizio Reggiani hasn't said it will happen, but he did imply it could be a possibility. He also said the company could build Sterrato-specific parts using a “lightweight synthetic material” which can be used in 3D printers. This means the company would save money developing the model.
So, who knows if we will ever see this on the road, but it's nice to dream. I can imagine this limited production run would be very popular in the Middle East. After all, it isn't that often you get the chance to buy a standard 5.2L V10 off roader from factory.
