The high-riding, all-terrain 2023 Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato will run on similarly tough Bridgestone tyres equipped with run-flat technology and designed exclusively for the model.

Bridgestone has revealed full details on the custom Dueler All-Terrain AT002 tyre specially designed for the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato, a highly anticipated model that is set to begin production next month.

The Dueler All-Terrain AT002 tyres will be the world’s first supercar all-terrain tyres that support Run-Flat Technology (RFT), which will allow Sterrato drivers to continue after a puncture for 80km at up to 80km/h with 0-bar pressure.

The Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 tyre is designed to be fit to carry the all-wheel-drive V10 Sterrato over any terrain, promising on and off-road performance to match the capabilities of the supercar.

Bridgestone says that the AT002 tyres will be manufactured with a specialised compound and shoulder designed to provide optimal grip in deep gravel and mud.

The Dueler All-Terrain AT002’s tread pattern provides ideal high-speed handling without losing any performance during off-road running.

Sterrato owners who want to make the most of their all-terrain vehicle in colder climates will also have the aftersale option of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 winter tyre for additional traction in snow and low-grip wet conditions.

Both tyre options will have wider rear tyres with the AT002 measuring in at 235/40 R19 at the front and 285/40 ZR19 at the rear, while the Blizzak LM005 comes in at 235/40 R19 in the front and 285/40 R19 in the rear, only missing the ZR performance speed rating.

“With the Dueler All-Terrain AT002, we’ve created a tyre that is just as capable at high speeds on asphalt as it is when driving off-road, providing high-speed stability and off-road capability, rising to meet a completely different set of challenges on mud, gravel, and demanding terrains,” said Bridgestone EMIA VP of consumer replacement Steven De Bock.

The 2023 Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato is limited to 1499 production units and will run on a 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine that produces 449kW of power and 565Nm of torque.

It is the final variant in the line of V10 Huracan supercars that started in 2014. Once it goes on sale it will compete against the recently-revealed Porsche 911 Dakar.

Lamborghini has claimed the model will do the 0-100km/h sprint in 3.4 seconds, and the 0-200km/h sprint in 9.8 seconds.
