Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept: A Racing SUV? Why Not!

Italian supercar manufacturer has just started selling its first-ever SUV, and it’s already considering a single-brand racing series for it.

The Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept is the brand’s vision of an SUV in a championship that will combine a race circuit and an off-road course. This competition series will debut in 2020 in Europe and in the Middle East on FIA-approved circuits. The series would include vehicles and technical support teams—drivers would benefit from an “arrive and drive” formula.

The Urus ST-X Concept is specially prepared for racing with FIA-approved safety cage, fire suppression system and FT3 fuel tank. The show vehicle bears a matt Verde Mantis green paint job, a carbon-fibre hood, a rear wing and lateral exhausts, while larger air intakes provide extra cooling for the 650-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 engine. The automaker claims the race-ready Urus is 25% lighter, and the roll cage enhances torsional stiffness.

We should see the first appearance of the Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept during the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals, which is the culminating event of the annual Super Trofeo racing series established by the brand in 2013.
