Posted in Latest news | 22/11/2018
Lamborghini Squadra Corse unveiled the Urus ST-X Concept at the Super Trofeo World Finals last weekend. The racing version of the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle is a car conceived for an innovative single-brand championship that combines race circuit and off-road track. The new formal will debut in 2020 in Europe and the Middle East on specially prepare 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 of the FIA-approved safety elements, including FT3 fuel tank, fire suppression system and steel roll cage.
Visually, the Urus ST-X Concept is characterised by the matt Verde Mantis 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 bhp and 850 Nm od torque. The look is completed with rear wing, lateral racing exhausts with a new hexagonal design and 21” single-nut aluminum alloy wheels fitted with Pirelli tyres.
The development of the racing configuration has also led to a 25% weight reduction compared to the production model. 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 is due to take place during the 2019 Super Trofeo World Finals.
