Car pictures of the week: Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato at eCoty 2023

Is the Huracán Sterrato the ultimate supercar for craggy British roads? We brought one along to evo Car of the Year 2023 to find out.

evo Car of the Year contenders come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing ties them all together – they put the driver at the centre of the experience. Having said that, we’ve never seen a shape quite like the jacked up, knobbly-tyred Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato at eCoty. 

Sharing the field (not literally) with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, McLaren 750S and Honda’s Civic Type R, there was a risk the Lambo would feel completely out of place, but it also promises to open up new dimensions to the supercar experience. You can read how it stacked up by picking up a copy of evo issue 317 in-store or online via the evo shop

We included the Sterrato off the back of James Taylor’s first taste of it in California earlier this year. As Huracán production comes to a close in 2024, it’s been built to explore just how far the package can go – which is much further than you think. The Sterrato isn’t a car to go rock crawling in, but the way it eats up the terrain and finds traction is unprecedented for a supercar.

At £232,820 it costs £29,000 more than the Huracán Tecnica, but your money goes towards a comprehensive set of off-road upgrades. The engine breathes through a roof scoop, for one, to suck in cleaner air when you’re kicking up gravel and dust. The Sterrato also rides on longer, softer springs than a standard Huracan, sitting 44mm higher to clear rough ground. The dampers are longer too, and the car’s drive modes have been calibrated to suit the new hardware.

But the question we sought to answer at eCoty is whether those changes add to the on-road driving experience, or take something away. Can the Sterrato outfox the competition on the most challenging roads and conditions the UK has to offer? Grab a copy of issue 317 to find out.
