The first drive on the tarmac and beyond the asphalt, from the Joshua Tree National Park to Chuckwalla Valley Raceway
The diverse landscapes of California provide the perfect environment in which to appreciate the eclectic spirit of the Huracán Sterrato, evident as soon as the tyres hit tarmac and then sand, on road and raceway.
Driving the panoramic roads of the remarkable Joshua Tree National Park, adventurers appreciate the driving comfort of the Sterrato on asphalt before hitting the exhilarating dirt tracks in Rally mode at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. The circuit in the Coachella Valley desert combines a traditional tarmac track with sections of dirt surfaces over a total length of around 4km. The pioneering and unconventional approach of the Lamborghini brand is evident in the Huracán Sterrato’s performance in such diverse environments, with optimized vehicle dynamics for perfect driving control on all surfaces.
The adventurous character of the Sterrato is clear at first glance: ground clearance is increased by 44mm compared to the Huracan EVO for greater suspension travel, with wider tracks both front and rear of +30 mm and +34 mm respectively. The aluminium front underbody protection, the reinforced sills, the rear diffuser and the robust wheel arches not only protect the car but emphasize its muscularity. The distinctive air intakes on the rear bonnet enhance the sporting character of the Sterrato, but supply the engine with clean air when driving on dusty roads. The 19” rims shod with specially-developed Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tires offer maximum versatility and adaptiveness on any surface and any conditions, for optimum driver feedback and enjoyment as well as performance.
Having explored the Joshua Tree National Park and exploited the Sterrato’s capabilities in Chuckwalla, the dirt road covered in the desert’s fine sand leads back to Palm Springs, where the pace slows and the versatile soul of the Huracán Sterrato adapts perfectly to the avenues surrounded by palm trees in the exclusive California location.
