Lamborghini have lost their minds and created the off-road tuned Huracán Sterrato

Can someone tell Lamborghini that they already have an off-roader? The Italian supercar maker launched the Urus in 2018 but that hasn't deterred the Sant'Agata-based company to build the one-off Huracán Sterrato. 

If you're wondering what we're on about, here's the lowdown - the Sterrato is based on the Huracán Evo and powered by a 5.2-litre V10 of which the power, thankfully, goes to all four wheels. 

In order for it to off the beaten track, Lambo has raised the ride height by 47mm, thus improving the approach and departure angles. It rides on 20" wheels and has a wider front and rear with an increase of 30mm.

But who wants to scuff their multi-million Rand supercar right? To prevent damage there are a host of protective goodies like a rear skid plate, aluminium reinforcements, aluminium-reinforced side skirts, protective composite bodywork around the engine and air intakes, and carbon fibre and elastomeric resin mudguards.

As we mentioned earlier, it's a one-off and Lambo is unlikely to ever build it for production.
