First Look: The Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept
During the 2018 World Finals, Lamborghini Squadra Corse unveiled the Urus ST-X Concept, the racing version of the first Super SUV in the brand’s history. The vision is a car conceived for an innovative single-brand championship that combines race circuit and off-road track. The new format will debut in 2020 in Europe and the Middle East on specially prepared FIA-approved circuits, with an “arrive and drive” formula designed to offer driver-customers a complete package including car and technical support during the race weekends.
The Urus ST-X Concept applies Lamborghini Squadra Corsa’s motorsport experience to a brand new segment. Compared to the production model, the Urus ST-X Concept has been mechanically optimized and equipped with all the FIA-approved safety elements, including steel roll cage, fire suppression system, and FT3 fuel tank.
Aesthetically, the Urus ST-X Concept is characterized by the matte Verde Mantis (green) livery in addition to the hood in visible carbon fiber. Larger air intakes optimize the cooling of the V8 twin-turbo engine that is capable of delivering 650 CV and 850 Nm of torque. The overall look is completed by the rear wing, the lateral racing exhausts with a new hexagonal design, and 21” single-nut aluminum alloy wheels fitted with Pirelli tires.
The development of the racing configuration has also led to a 25% weight reduction compared with the production model. The light weight, along with the raised set-up and torsional stiffening provided by a roll cage integrated in the frame, contribute to making the Urus ST-X Concept a race car for track and off-road use without compromise. Its track debut will take place during the 2019 Lamborghini World Finals.
Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder: Requiem For A V10
The Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder is a symphony for the senses. This isn’t a review, it’s an ode to a car that excites you on every level.
First Look: The Ferrari SP3JC
The latest Ferrari one-off project, the SP3JC, has been officially consigned to its owner. Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the SP3JC was commissioned by a Ferrari client and collector who set out to create a pure, uncompromising roadster using the chassis and running gear of the F12tdf.
The sole one-off car to be commissioned on this limited-series special, the SP3JC is the maximum expression of open-air motoring, harking back to Ferrari’s epic V12-engined spiders of the 1950s & ‘60s. The car features a muscular stance with dynamic sculpturing on the flanks designed to emphasize the front-engine layout, a distinctive air intake outline at the front, and a dramatic rear fascia with horizontal slashes contributing to a wider stance.
The client’s passion for Pop Art is reflected in the strong graphics, and the unique combination of the Azzurro Met and Giallo Modena livery over the main Bianco Italia colour scheme underlines the car’s sensual volumes.
The sporting theme is reinforced by specific detailing such as split glass inserts on the bonnet to show off the 780cv V12 engine, a flying bridge between the fairings of the integral carbon-fiber roll hoops.
