Lamborghini is planning a single-brand race series that will debut in 2020. To be run on FIA-approved circuits in Europe and the Middle East, the series combines a race circuit and off-road track. Of course, only one model in Lamborghini’s lineup certainly fits the bill for such a series, which is why Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the Italian carmaker’s motorsport division, has created the Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept, “the racing version of the first Super SUV in the brand’s history.”
The Urus ST-X Concept applies Lamborghini Squadra Corsa’s motorsport experience to a brand-new segment. To make it fit for racing, the Urus ST-X Concept has been fitted with all the FIA-approved safety elements, including the steel roll cage, fire suppression system, and FT3 fuel tank.
Larger air intakes optimize the cooling of the V8 twin-turbo engine that is capable of delivering 641 hp 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-inch single-nut aluminum alloy wheels fitted with Pirelli tires.
The development of the racing configuration has also led to a 25-percent weight reduction compared to 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.”
The Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept will make its track debut at the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals.
