Off-road supercars are far from leaving their niche status behind. But at least Lamborghini has ticked this box and will go down in history, together with Porsche and their new 911 Dakar, as having such a model in its lineup.
Named the Huracan Sterrato, it's a jacked-up version of the regular V10-powered supercar that shares many traits with the Huracan EVO. However, the things that set it apart are the longer suspension travel, more ground clearance, plastic cladding, roof rails, and extra lights on its nose. It also sports a roof scoop that comes in handy on dusty roads as it feeds clean air to the engine, and it comes with 19-inch wheels wrapped in 235/40 front and 285/40 rear tires made by Bridgestone, which are exclusive to it.

An electronically-controlled all-wheel drive system enhances traction on loose and slippery surfaces. The jacked-up supercar has a mechanical self-locking differential and a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic gearbox delivering the thrust to both axles. Speaking of the power, it has 601 hp (610 ps/449 kW) produced by its naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) of torque. The 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) takes 3.4 seconds, and the top speed won't impress anyone, as it's capped at roughly 160 mph (260 kph).

Only 1,499 units of the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato will ever see the light of day, and the Italian supercar maker has already kicked off the deliveries. Thus, more and more enthusiasts pick up their Sterratos each day all over the world, and some of them are willing to give them the occasional thrashing. Case in point, that's the story behind the video that you're about to watch, as it shows one enthusiastic owner being handed over the keys. Moments later, the footage cuts to the man driving the heck of his Huracan Sterrato on dirt roads and even subjecting it to a lot of water – because it can actually go swimming.

Did it survive the ordeal? Has Lamborghini actually made a solid product that can be driven off the beaten path every now and then without having to be afraid of something failing? Is the Huracan Sterrato really that fun to drive away from the comfort of smooth tarmac? It appears the answer to these questions is yes. Hopefully, this is just the tip of the iceberg, and we will eventually see more and more clips showing the Huracan Sterrato being driven hard on all sorts of arduous tracks, perhaps next to real body-on-frame off-roaders, as it would be a very rare and extremely exotic presence in the usual 4x4 circles. But enough babbling about it, as it's now time to invite you to click the play button. And you'll need a ten-minute break, as that's how long the video is.
