Next year, the Italian brand will present a serial version of the concept previously shown in 2018, which was intended to be used only on the racetrack.

Earlier, there were rumors that the serial version of the previously presented running concept Urus ST-X will be shown in 2020, but now this information is officially confirmed. As part of his recent interview with foreign publications, Maurizio Reggiani, head of research and development at Lamborghini, said that the debut of the high-performance version of the Urus crossover will take place as part of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo World 2020 racing final. The event itself will be held from October 31 to November 1 in Misano, Italy. “A demonstration race will be organized at which we will present our new product,” said Mr. Reggiani.

 It is noteworthy that the Urus ST-X crossover will not receive a more powerful engine, which means that under its hood there will be a 4.0-liter V8 engine with two turbines, designed for a maximum of 650 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque.

 But then, a more productive version of the crossover will become lighter than the standard version of the car by 550 kilograms – thus, the total weight of the car will be 1,650 kg.

It also became known that a plug-hybrid version of the super-crossover will appear in the Urus family – that’s what representatives of the Italian automaker call it. The latter have repeatedly stated that the current Urus platform is ready for electrification, because we are talking about the same “cart” on which the hybrid versions of the German Porsche Cayenne crossover and the British Bentley Bentayga are built.

 “The most important part will be to determine how Lamborghini should use this electric energy, and how we can differ from other companies that used the same platform,” Mr. Reggiani said.
