Lamborghini Urus is all set for a tremendous makeover. The next-gen Urus gets true race-track updates. All thanks to the Squadra Corse, Lamborghini motorsport division, the next-gen Urus will be a track-only avatar of the current model. Christened as the Urus ST-X Concept, the new version features a host of welcome changes on the outside, inside and under the hood. Here’s a closer look at what’s new on the Urus ST-X Concept which is slated to participate in the brand’s one-make championship next year.
The new Urus ST-X Concept benefits immensely from the Lamborghini Squadra Corse years of track experience. And this is prominently evident in the larger intakes and the SUV’s reduced kerb weight. With improved cooling and 2,200kg less weight, the Urus ST-X Concept promises a true race track experience to lovers of speed looking for a thrilling experience.
The new-gen model Urus borrows its heart from its predecessor. The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine promises 650hp power and 850Nm torque with more efficient cooling.
The new Urus ST-X Concept carries the one in a billion Lamborghini DNA which means looks are still one of the main fortes. The new avatar gets a new green exterior finish with carbon fiber cladding on the bonnet. Other attention grabbers on the exterior front include 21-inch single-nut aluminum alloy wheels, hexagonal racing exhausts, and larger rear spoiler.

The 2020 one-make championship tests race cars with a mix of circuit and off-road racing. Hosted in Europe and the Middle-east all tracks are FIA-approved.

The Italian Automaker will further offer drivers/customers with technical support during the race weekends based on “arrive and drive” formula.
