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 single-brand championship that combines race circuit and off-road track will debut in 2020 in Europe and the Middle East on specially prepared FIA-approved circuits. The series will have 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 optimized 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 hood in visible carbon fiber. Larger air intakes optimize 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.
