Lamborghini Urus SUV for the race track – Meet the new ST X racing edition

Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept race car gets detailed. It will make its track debut during the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals and will start racing in 2020 in both on and off road events. This close to production concept which was previewed is based on the regular production Urus which was introduced in 2017.

Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept race car will receive racing specs with overweight reduced by 25%. It gets a steel roll cage, integrated fire fighting system, shell seat and racing belts and an FT3 fuel tank as these are FIA approved safety elements.

The automakers have also made design revisions where its exhaust system is concerned with hexagonal tips positioned below the rear doors. The company has not revealed how it has managed to shave off 25% of overall weight off the Urus.

But by doing so, the Concept will now be capable of better performance both on and off the road. If we are to believe Lamborghini, the racing Urus weighs less than 3,637 lbs (1,649 kg).

Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept race car, developed by the Squadra Corse specialists, also receives a rear wing, 21” center locking alloy wheels fitted with Pirelli tyres. It stands apart in a distinctive colour of Mantis green revealing a carbon fiber hood and larger air vents which allow for optimal heat exchange of its twin turbo V8 engine offering 650 hp and 850 Nm torque. The engine is mated to an 8 speed automatic transmission.

Unlike what was seen in the case of Super Trofeo where the Huracan was bought by private teams and drivers for participation in world championships organized by Lamborghini, the Urus ST-X will be managed directly from the company. Drivers will be offered a racing package that includes use of the car along with technical support along the FIA licensed circuits, which is called ‘arrive and drive’. However, no pricing information has been announced as on date.
