Lamborghini Unveils Urus ST-X Concept For Racing Series That Combines On And Off-Road Driving

Lamborghini Squadra Corse has taken the wraps off the new Urus ST-X concept.

Created for a unique racing series that combines off-road driving with a traditional circuit, the Urus ST-X concept has an aggressive design and a matte Verde Mantis livery.

Lamborghini didn’t go into too many specifics, but the racing crossover has been equipped with a ventilated carbon fiber hood, larger air intakes and 21-inch center-locking wheels with Pirelli tires. A closer inspection also reveals carbon fiber mirror caps, a small rear wing and “lateral racing exhausts with a new hexagonal design.”

Since the crossover was designed for competition, it has been outfitted with a number of FIA-approved safety features including a steel roll cage, a fire suppression system and an FT3 fuel tank. Lamborghini Squadra Corse also worked their magic on the Urus and this led to a 25% weight reduction compared to the standard model. This suggests the concept weighs less than 3,637 lbs (1,649 kg).

While the concept is significantly lighter than the standard model, it uses the same twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 641 hp (478 kW / 650 PS) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque. Lamborghini didn’t say how fast the concept is, but the standard Urus can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 189 mph (305 km/h).

The Urus ST-X concept will make its track debut at the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals and will likely go into limited production as the on- / off-road racing series kicks off in 2020. The series will be held at specially prepared FIA-approved circuits in Europe and the Middle East and the series will follow “an arrive and drive formula designed to offer driver-customers a complete package including car and technical support during the race weekends.”

    Urus definitely looks meaner without the body-colored ‘branches’ in the front grille.
