Some people with more money than sense will occasionally take their expensive supercars off the beaten track, much to the disgust of car enthusiasts.

This is nothing new, but now Lamborghini has got in on the act with its own off-road Huracan.

Called the Sterrato’s (Italian for dirt), it’s based on the Huracan Evo, but the ride height has been bumped up by 47mm, the wheel track (front and rear) has been widened by 30mm while the approach and departure angles have also been improved.

Other additions include 20-inch alloys wrapped in 'balloon tyres', bulging wheel arches, LED lightbar, a skid plate that also acts as a diffuser and everything else you would normally see on a jacked-up HiLux.

Slap on more black paint plus some jerry cans and it'll look straight out of Mad Max. Slap on more black paint plus some jerry cans and it'll look straight out of Mad Max.

Powering this off-roader is the same 5.2-litre V10 found in the Evo model, which means 470kW/600Nm of Italian furry. 

Interestingly, Lambo seems to be in a phase where the brand likes to turn its cars into something they’re not. For example, the Urus ST-X concept from last year is an off-road capable SUV transformed into a track car. 

At the moment it’s only a concept, but the chances of the Sterrato becoming a reality are very slim... Or is it?
