Lamborghini introduced the aggressive Huracán Sterrato concept last week and a new report is indicating it could go into production.
According to Automobile Magazine, the model could be launched in 2021 as a limited edition variant. Plans haven’t been finalized, but sources told the publication the company could build between 500 and 1,000 units. They would reportedly carry a base price of around €240,000 ($270,891 / £213,524).
Lamborghini’s chief technical officer wouldn’t confirm plans for production, but he did imply it’s possible. As Maurizio Reggiani explained, the “provisional business case suggests that we can build this car at a profit.”
In order to keep costs in check, Reggiani said the company could build Sterrato-specific components out of a specially developed “lightweight synthetic material” which can be used in 3D printers. This means the company wouldn’t have to spend much money developing the model and that’s an issue as Lamborghini’s budget is “quite tight.”
The Sterrato would certainly make an interesting addition to Lamborghini’s lineup and it’s believed the car could help juice Huracán sales as the model ages. That’s going to be increasingly important as the report suggests a replacement has been pushed back to 2024.
Regardless of what happens, the Huracán Sterrato concept was based on the Huracán Evo and featured a rugged exterior with underbody skid plates, aluminum-reinforced side skirts and extended fender flares. The concept also had LED auxiliary lights, an additional 1.9 inches (47 mm) of ground clearance and 20-inch wheels that were wrapped in specially-developed tires.
Power was provided by a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that developed 631 hp (471 kW / 640 PS). It was connected to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox and a standard all-wheel drive system.
