Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato Review (2023)

The Sterrato is finished with rugged plastic cladding, rally-spec lights, Bridgestone Dueller run-flat tyres and a £232,820 price tag. A few are still up for grabs, but won’t be for long.

Mohr says that Huracáns, or any other super-sports Lamborghinis, are usually developed with measurable performance parameters front of mind. Some are applied here too, but there was also an emphasis on the subjective. Unless you can put measurable KPIs on smiles.

Our drive consists of two parts. First is a straightforward, speed-very-much-limited road drive; the second a rallycross stage.

Lamborghini is one of the more flamboyant sports car companies, so you settle into a lively Huracán-spec interior, whose only notable nods to being a Sterrato are the switch for the spotlights, some instrumentation changes (inclinometer, compass, steering angle indicator) and a new ‘Rally’ calibration on the drive mode selector. Those aside, the naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10, Lamborghini’s last, fires with a noisy bark to a loud idle. This, like track-focused Huracáns, is not the most subtle car in the world.

A slight surprise, then, to discover just how docile the Sterrato is as a road car. On its 235/40 R19 front and 285/40 R19 tyres, it has a relaxed, easy and absorbent gait to its ride that’s slightly at odds with the sharpness of the 602bhp engine and quick seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
