During the 2018 World Finals,
Lamborghini Squadra Corse has unveiled the Urus ST-X Concept, the racing
version of the first Super SUV in the brand’s history. The vision is a car
conceived for an innovative single-brand championship that combines race
circuit and off-road track. The new format will debut in 2020 in Europe and the
Middle East on specially prepared FIA-approved circuits, with an “arrive and
drive” formula designed to offer driver-customers a complete package including
car and technical support during the race weekends.
The Urus ST-X Concept applies
Lamborghini Squadra Corsa’s motorsport experience to a brand new segment.
Compared to the production model, the Urus ST-X Concept has been mechanically
optimised and equipped with all the FIA-approved safety elements, including
steel roll cage, fire suppression system, and FT3 fuel tank.
Aesthetically, the Urus ST-X
Concept is characterised by the matt Verde Mantis (green) livery in addition to
the hood in visible carbon fibre. Larger air intakes optimise the cooling of
the V8 twin-turbo engine that is capable of delivering 650 CV and 850 Nm of
torque. The overall look is completed by the rear wing, the lateral racing
exhausts with a new hexagonal design, and 21” single-nut aluminum alloy wheels
fitted with Pirelli tires.
The development of the racing
configuration has also led to a 25% weight reduction compared with the
production model. The light weight, along with the raised set-up and torsional
stiffening provided by a roll cage integrated in the frame, contribute to making
the Urus ST-X Concept a race car for track and off-road use without compromise.
Its track debut will take place during the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals.
