The Lamborghini Urus ST-X is a Super-SUV Built for the Racetrack

Does it hint that a hotter road-going Urus is on the way?


As if the Urus wasn't quick enough, now Lamborghini will build a racing version. We previously reported on the track-spec Urus ST-X Concept in late 2018, but now Squadra Corse, the brand's motorsports division, has announced official details of the track-special SUV and its competition schedule. 


Lightness is key to any successful race car, and to that extent Lamborghini fitted a carbon-fiber hood to reduce weight over the front end. The hood also features new intakes to enhance cooling airflow to the engine. At the rear, a larger carbon-fiber rear wing provides downforce, while a racing exhaust system should shave a few pounds and add a few decibels. The interior has been enhanced for track duty as well with the addition of racing seats and a roll bar. 

Power remains unchanged at 641 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque from the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8. Combined with the same eight-speed automatic transmission and torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system of the standard car, that should prove sufficient to keep Urus ST-X drivers moving at race pace


Lamborghini has only announced a single race for the vehicle so far. It's set to take place at Misano Circuit on Italy's east coast during the 2020 Super Trofeo World Finals, the culmination of the brand's Huracan-based racing series. Winners from that series will be invited to compete against renowned car and motorcycle race pilots. Lamborghini says the race will take place on a "special track," which will hopefully combine tarmac and dirt. 

The Urus ST-X makes clear that Lamborghini considers its SUV a performance vehicle like any of its other offerings. Much like the Huracan has been upfitted to Performante spec and the Aventador transformed into the fire-breathing SVJ, the preparation of the Urus for competition seems to indicate a hotter version is on the way. We're eager to see what components and knowledge from the ST-X program may eventually make their way onto that vehicle. Until then, it'll be great to watch a herd of these big bulls stampede across a racetrack.
