Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept,
the first Super SUV for racing
During the 2018 World Finals, Lamborghini Squadra Corse unveiled the Urus ST-X Concept, the racing version of the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle in the brand’s history. The vision is a car conceived for an innovative single-brand championship that combines racetrack 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 the maximum flexibility and complete support during the weekend even events.
The Urus ST-X Concept applies the Motorsport experience of Lamborghini Squadra Corse to a brand new segment. Compared to the production model, the Urus ST-X Concept has been optimized in its mechanics 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 characterized by the matt Verde Mantis (green) livery in addition to the exposed carbon fiber hood with larger air intakes to optimize the heat exchange of the twin-turbo V8 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 also led to a 25% weight reduction compared to the street model. The light weight, along with the raised set-up and the torsional stiffening provided by the roll cage integrated in the frame, contribute to making the Urus ST-X Concept a no-compromise competition car. Its track debut will take place during the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals.
