Good news for gearheads, because Lamborghini India has announced the arrival of the first Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato in the country. The Lamborghini Huracan has been a sensation globally, and now it’s time for the Indian auto enthusiasts to witness the beast in action.
The Unmissable Exterior
When it comes to aesthetics, this exceptional supercar is truly a mean machine, sporting an incredible Grigio Lynx Shade. The colour is akin to a stealthy predator on the prowl, radiating an air of predatory sophistication that commands attention.
But there’s more. Complementing its grey hue are Morus 19-inch forged black rims which impart a menacing aura to this mechanical beast. And no, we can’t move ahead without mentioning those eye-catching yellow CCB callipers. They’re not just there for the show, they have an equally significant job to do. But we’ll get to brakes later.
Though the exterior is captivating, the real magic is hidden under its enchanting shell. This V10-powered off-road-oriented sports car comes with a sticker price of Rs 4.61 crore (ex-showroom), which might seem a pretty penny until you take a glimpse of what it brings to the table.
The Huracan Sterrato gets a chunky body cladding that looks as if it means business, roof rails you usually see on SUVs, redesigned front and rear bumpers showcasing an intimidating look, a roof-mounted scoop doing its part for the aerodynamics and, of course, the rally-style front bumper-mounted lights that make the car look like it’s ready for a breath-taking night rally right off the dealership.
Like other Huracan models, the Sterrato also uses a combination of top-tier material: sumptuous carbon fibre and premium-grade aluminium. Then there’s the carbon-ceramic brakes: 380mm at the front and 356mm at the rear. The car not just stops, it probably could stop time if it tried! The ride height is a crucial part, and Lamborghini engineers have paid meticulous attention to that, raising it by 44mm from the Huracan EVO.
The State-of-the-art Technology
The Huracan Sterrato is equipped with the Lamborghini Integrated Vehicle Dynamics (LIVD) system. In essence, this system optimizes the utilization of horsepower, ensuring peak performance and ride quality through efficient means.
Akin to its siblings, it has the usual Sport and Strada modes. But Lamborghini made sure to stir a bit of excitement by adding a Rally driving mode, which initially debuted with Urus Performante. This mode promises to offer a fun-to-drive experience on low-grip terrains, replicating the exhilaration of a real rally race at the push of a button.
Under the hood, the Huracan Sterrato is powered by the naturally aspirated 5,204cc, V10 petrol mill generating a whopping 610PS at 8,000rpm and 560Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. That’s an absurd amount of punch, and you get to channel this monstrous power via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
This mighty beast can teleport from zero to 100kmph in just 3.4 seconds. I mean, you could find yourself breaking speed limits without even realizing it! And if you happen to have a straight, unending road, this car gallops to 200kmph in just 9.8 seconds! It tops out at 260kmph, ensuring bragging rights in most high-speed chases.
The Interiors: A Symphony of Comfort and Technology
Step inside, and you’d be engulfed in luxury, courtesy of the new Alcantara Verde upholstery. The visuals on the touchscreen infotainment system get a big thumbs up for their enhanced clarity.
You also have a digital inclinometer with pitch and roll indications, a compass and a geographic coordinates display – because such a detailed navigation system is a must when you’re going off-road. Plus, there’s a steering angle indicator! Seems like Lamborghini left no stone unturned in making it the ultimate road-rally behemoth.
And there you have it, folks! The arrival of the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato in India is something extraordinary indeed. And if you happen to see one on the streets, be sure to give it a second look. After all, it’s not every day you see a Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato roaming the roads of India!
