Another project by Lamborghini Squadra Corse has been unveiled, a racing version of the brand's new SUV, the Urus ST-X Concept.
The idea behind the concept is for the race circuit and off-road track abilities to be combined with the new format set to debut in 2020 on specially prepared FIA-approved circuits in Europe and the Middle East. The ‘arrive and drive’ formula aims to give customers a complete package which would include the car and technical support during the race weekends.
Applying Lamborghini Squadra Corsa’s motorsport experience to a brand new segment created the Urus ST-X Concept which has been mechanically optimized and equipped with all the FIA-approved safety elements. A steel roll cage, fire suppression system, and FT3 fuel tank are just a few of those elements.
Compared to the production model, the Urus ST-X Concept also features larger air intakes, a rear wing, new hexagonal-design racing exhausts and 21-inch single-nut aluminium alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires. Matt Verde Mantis (green) livery and a carbon fibre hood complete the look.
Power comes from the brand’s twin-turbo V8 engine which is capable of delivering 480kW of power and 850Nm of torque. Drive is sent to all four wheels through a new all-wheel drive system.
Interestingly, the Urus ST-X is also 25 per cent lighter compared to the production model.
Combined with the raised set-up and torsional stiffening provided by a roll cage integrated into the frame, the concept is set for the track as well as off-road use.
The Urus ST-X Concept will make its track debut during the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals.
