Even Porsche is thinking about a 650-PS version of the Cayenne, and this leaves Lamborghini at a disadvantage. Asked by Digital Trends about the possibility of turning the ST-X into a road-going model, Reggiani said “yes” without going into detail about the long-anticipated SUV.
Created for the racing circuit by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the Urus ST-X features the same V8 engine and similar output to the Urus. But on the other hand, the Urus ST-X is 25 percent lighter thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber. The center-lock wheels with Pirelli P-Zero racing tires also help on the visual front, as does the Verde Mantis paintwork.
Lamborghini is also working on the plug-in hybrid Urus, which will borrow the PHEV technologies from the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. The Porsche levels up to 680 PS (671 horsepower) and 850 Nm (627 pound-feet) of torque, making it the third most powerful Porsche ever. The other two are the 911 GT2 RS from the 991 generation and the 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid hypercar.
As far as suck-squeeze-bang-blow is concerned, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is at the top of the game with the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 is capable of 707 horsepower in this application, but in Redeye flavor, the engineers at SRT can crank things up to 797 horsepower.
