Lamborghini is preparing a Urus crossover for racing in 2020

The version of the Italian crossover Lamborghini Urus, which will receive the designation ST-X, will debut in the racing season of 2020. The machine will receive many technical and aerodynamic innovations.

If even such a big guy as the American SUV Hummer H1 can become a race car, we should not be surprised that next year, the Italian crossover Lamborghini Urus will take part in races.

   First introduced as the concept of the Lamborghini Squadra Corse almost a year ago, the SUV is returning in new official images that were published this weekend in Spain on the occasion of the Super Trofeo World Finals.

We should note that the upcoming ST-X will be more than just a Lamborghini Urus with racing paint, as the crossover will undergo significant changes in technical support.

 It is known that the final version of the car will weigh 550 kg less than its “civilian” performance, that is, the total weight will be 1650 kg. Significant weight reduction will be achieved through the widespread use of carbon fiber.

 Other changes compared to the standard Urus will include additional air intakes in the hood and a racing exhaust system with new hexagonal tips. “The first super crossover in the world of racing” will be equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 engine with two turbines, providing 650 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque.

  The dynamic characteristics of the racing version of the crossover were not disclosed, but we expect that all these acceleration indicators will be significantly improved compared to the usual performance of the Lamborghini Urus. Standard Urus accelerates to the first 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and its maximum speed will be 305 km / h.

  Next year we will be shown a racing version of the Lamborghini Urus crossover during the Super Trofeo 2020 World Finals in Misano Adriatico in Italy.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the blogger developed the Lamborghini Huracan with a Hummer engine and manual transmission. Chris Steinbacher, author of the B is for Build YouTube channel, built the original Lamborghini Huracan. He installed a Hummer H2 engine and manual transmission from the Audi R8 in a supercar. The presentation of the car will take place at the SEMA automobile exhibition.
