We had a whale of a time in the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato when we drove it. After the engineers at Sant’Agata learned lots about off-roading while developing the Urus, they decided to convert the Huracan into something that can drive very quickly without any roads. It was a great idea.
But when you’re driving someone else’s car, there’s only so much you can push it. Indeed, Lamborghini told us on our trip that, despite its knobbly tyres and jacked up ground clearance, the Sterrato is built for fast driving on loose surfaces, rather than anything massively gnarly. BOOO, we said under our breath, but we listened and were relatively sensible in our hoonery.
For a dose of something very silly and potentially very expensive, then, step forward YouTuber and off-road racer Mark McCann, who has his own Sterrato and can do what the hell he likes with it. So obviously he built a big jump for it.
A trip to a quarry highlights that while the Sterrato sits higher than a standard Huracan, it’s still a very low car, so Land Rover-style off-roading isn’t really its forte. But a field with dirt tracks on it? Now you’re talking.
One shovelling together of a dirt jump with a tasty little kicker, courtesy of a handy digger, and you’ve got a recipe for potential disaster, YouTube immortality or both. We won’t spoil the ending – check out the video and see how Mark got on.
And then once you’ve done that, check out our report from our time messing about with the Sterrato in Italy, where Lamborghini very much didn’t let us try jumping it.
