Video: Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato in action at 2023 Festival of Speed

The Lamborghini V10 is shortly to bow out, and boy is that a shame. Not ones to do things conventionally, or indeed by halves, the Italian marque’s goodbye to the Huracan isn’t the track-only, fire-spitting special you might expect. Here at the 2023 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard is a strange beast with knobbly tyres, rubbery arches and jacked-up suspension, because it’s an off-road spec supercar called the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato.

As is often the way with these things, Sterrato is very much a ‘does what it says on the tin’ name when translated. So don’t expect Aston Martin to put out a DBS ‘Dirt Road’ any time soon. The Sterrato pairs the bits we love – the 5.2-litre V10, the twin-clutch transmission and the Huracan’s essential supercar silhouette – with a 44mm boost in ground clearance, bump-safe arches and skid plates to humble our rally stage.

So yes, this 610PS (449kW) Lamborghini does in fact look a little out of place being chucked up the Hill on the absolute limit, as opposed to whipping up the Off-Road Arena. It still looks properly cool, bobbing back and forth on its stilts, and certainly has us laughing rather than crying as we wave the Huracan off. 

You couldn’t imagine a certain prancing rival from Maranello making the same thing, could you? Lamborghini has always had a sense of occasion and humour, so in this, the marque’s 60th year, the Sterrato feels entirely appropriate. Perhaps our favourite fact about the Sterrato? It’s the slowest Lamborghini since the original 1964 350GT of 59 years ago. Pipping the first Lamborghini road car ever by just two miles per hour, the Sterrato, for tyre and aero reasons, tops out at 160mph.

A relatively healthy production run of 1,499 Sterratos is planned before preparations begin for production of the Huracan’s successor which, as a hybrid, is being built in tandem with the new Revuelto. 

The 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed is underway! You can watch every moment of the action by watching our livestream.
