The Lamborghini Urus has just been named the official lead car for the marque’s Super Trofeo Europe racing series.
The championship kicked off earlier this year and has already completed two of its six rounds. The remaining races will be held in Misano next month, Spa-Francorchamps in July, the Nurburgring in September, and Vallelunga in November.
Lamborghini published a series of photos of the SUV on its Facebook page but for the most part, the vehicle appears identical to the road-going production model. As a matter of fact, the only visible changes are some stickers across the exterior. Power continues to come from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine delivering 641 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. It actually has more power than the Huracan Super Trofeo race cars.
The Lamborghini Urus isn’t the only interesting addition to this year’s Super Trofeo series. The extreme Huracan Super Trofeo Evo has made its premiere this season and makes the already-impressive Super Trofeo look tame. Among the key aerodynamic modifications include new canards, a custom rear wing, a large shark fin and an aggressive roof scoop to feed the naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine.
Making the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo all the more extreme is the fact that it is offered to teams solely in rear-wheel drive.
