Lamborghini has finally revealed the final race-ready version of the Urus ST-X concept that was showcased last year. Set to make its racing debut next year, the Italian marque says that the new Lamborghini Urus ST-X will be the first Super SUV in the world of racing.

The first race is scheduled during the 2020 World Finals in Misano Adriatico. Lamborghini said the winners of the four classes of the 2020 Super Trofeo will get to challenge a handful of professional racing drivers in a race comprised of only Urus ST-X SUVs. It will be held on a “special track,” Lamborghini said, suggesting that it might be something akin to a rallycross race where dirt sections and jumps are common.

Techanically, the Urus ST-X is powered by the existing 4.0-litre V8 engine from the existing model that generates 650bhp of power and massive 850Nm of peak torque. There are reports that the company might retune the V8 performance figures to deliver a higher power output. As seen in images, the race-spec model gets green (Verde Mantis) from the Lamborghini Squadra Corse along with the motorsport livery. The SUV also features sporty red detailing on the bumper and rides on large 21-inch aluminium wheels.

Tesla bags 200,000 orders for its futuristic ”Cybertruck”

New Delhi: Elon Musk is back with a bang with his all-new “Cybertruck”. Irrespective of the controversies the all-new Tesla Cybertruck has gathered, it is one of the most radical wheels that has gone on sale in recent times and is becoming quite popular by the day.

Elon Musk took to Twitter to share that Tesla has already received 200k orders since the launch of the “Cybertruck” which was actually 3 days ago(22 November).

Tesla Cybertruck’s production is expected to begin in late 2020. The electric pickup truck is available in three trims — single motor RWD with a range of over 250 miles, dual-motor AWD with a range of more than 300 miles and tri-motor AWD with a range in the north of 500 miles.

The single motor RWD variant of the Cybertruck can go from 0 to 60 mph in below 6.5 seconds and has a towing capacity of over 7,500 pounds, while the dual-motor AWD trim can make 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds and boasts of a towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds. Tesla claims that the tri-motor AWD variant of the vehicle is good for 0-60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds and gets a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds.

Given its relative performance and price, the Cybertruck could be a massive success for Tesla as it enters into the largest segment in the US market. Almost three million pickups were sold to consumers in 2018. If Tesla can carve off a tiny sliver of that, it’ll go a long way toward taking Tesla’s annual sales to the next level.
