Lamborghini has hinted that their high-performance Urus could be based around ST-X Concept. Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept was unveiled to the world last year’s November. A report from last week reports that Lamborghini is currently busy developing new version of Urus which would be lighter and faster than the current version. Now, Maurizio Reggiani who is automaker’s head of research and development confirmed this report while being asked about the if ST-X could give birth to road-going version to Digital Trends.
For those who are unfamiliar with Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept, it was brain child of Lamborghini Squadra Corse for the unique racing series which will begin from the year 2020 at FIA-approved circuits in Europe and the Middle East. It featured matte Verde Mantis livery along with FIA-approved safety elements such as steelroll cage, fire suppression system, and FT3 fuel tank. Urus ST-X Concept also features carbon fiber hood that has large air vents which supplies appropriate amount of air inside the bonnet with a small rear wing, lateral racing exhaust which has hexagonal design, and carbon fiber mirror caps.

To shave off extra weight, Lamborghini shunned away components which they were unnecessary for racing cars and metal parts were replaced with carbon fiber. Hence, it is 25% lighter than the stock version. Power in the Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept came from twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that is rated at 641hp and 850nm of torque. Performance figure of the has not been revealed but the stock version takes 3.6 seconds to hit 0-62mph.
