Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse Lightens The Urus V8 SUV By 25%

Lamborghini’s approach to the creation of the world’s finest supercars has never been questioned, and thanks to its Squadra Corse division, the existence of one-off showpieces like the SC18 Alstom have served to enamor the masses for years. Now, the renowned outfit is using its expertise to revise the Lamborghini Urus, a hyper SUV that’s been lauded for its commitment to the brand’s performance-oriented styling.

The Lamborghini Urus is already a formidable, road-ready platform, but for Squadra Corse’s upcoming project, they’ve decided to give the SUV a more aggressive demeanor. Under the vehicle’s sculpted body panels, a lightened structure serves to cut unneeded weight from the original by almost 25-percent, while bespoke external upgrades like a carbon fiber bonnet, rear wing, and air intakes serve to enhance the Urus’ aerodynamic proclivity. It’s still powered by the same twin-turbo V8 engine, making the addition of cabin-savvy peripherals like a roll cage, racing seats, and fire suppression system seem all-the-more noteworthy. Sadly, it seems that the Urus ST-X has been determined to remain track-only, and will make its debut in Misano, Italy under the supervision of the Super Trofeo series’ winning drivers.
