Lamborghini turns its Urus SUV into safety car
As many of you have heard, Urus is a hi-end crossover SUV introduced by the Italian car manufacturer Lamborghini in December 2017. Apparently, the company saw no problem in turning the bulky vehicle into a safety/pace car.
The official photos show the vehicle donning the symbols of the 2018 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe Monocup, which must be its intended destination. The description states that the top-spec Lamborghini Urus went through the necessary tests on the most famous racing circuit in Great Britain.
The LSTE race drivers compete on restyled Huracan Super Trofeo vehicles first demonstrated in September 2017. Each of these come with a new aerodynamic body kit, a tailfin attachment like those found on the LMP1-class racecars, and a new air intake. Each packs a five-liter naturally aspirated V10 capable of exceeding 600 hp (400 kW), partnered with an Xtrac sequential transmission.
The Lamborghini Urus safety car will take part in the Super Trofeo Racing Weekends held in June, July, September and November this year on a variety of racing circuits the world over.
