The new Lamborghini Urus EVO, which is about to debut, sets a new commercial SUV record at Pikes Peak Hill Climb[Video]| GENROQ Web

Prior to the world premiere in August 2022, Lamborghini brought the new Urus to Pikes Peak, Colorado, USA and conducted its own time trial test. Although it is not an official race day record on the course used for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, it set the course record in the commercial SUV category.

Recorded 10:32.064 driving Fagioli

This time, Pirelli test driver Simone Fagioli took the wheel of the new Urus before its launch. She did a great job, she ran in 10:32.064.

This time, the driver of the revised Urus, which has not yet been announced, was Simone Faggioli, who is a hillclimb champion and a test driver for Pirelli. He set a rear-wheel-drive course record at Pikes Peak in 2018 and was tasked with driving the new camouflaged Urus.

On the day of the time attack, the entire course will be closed to traffic, and the same route as the actual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb will be set. Fagioli, who started at an altitude of 2862m, ran through a 12.42-mile course (about 20km) including 156 corners and passed the finish line at an altitude of 4302m with a time of 10:32.064.

Beats Bentley’s raceday record

Before its debut, the new Lamborghini Usulu was driven by Simone Fagioli, who has a wealth of experience in hill climbing.
Since it was not recorded on the day of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, it is not an official race day record, but it greatly exceeded the 2018 time set by Bentley Bentayga.

Although not entered in the race, this time was recorded by the official timekeeper of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. In addition to the official non-raceday production SUV record of 12:35.610 set by Paul Dallenbach in 2014, the Urus also holds the current record set by Rhys Millen in his Bentley Bentayga in 2018. It surpassed both raceday records of 10:49.902.

Automobili Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer Ruben Mohr commented on the achievement:

“This test at Pikes Peak and the decision to run a time attack reflects Lamborghini’s ‘expect the unexpected’ mentality. It demonstrates the excellent performance of the new Urus, which will be launched soon.”

“Pikes Peak is one of the most famous hillclimb events in the world, but also a very challenging event for cars. And the weather changes very quickly from start to finish.”

Scheduled to officially debut in August 2022 as Urus EVO

The new Lamborghini Usulu ran through the Pikes Peak, which was blessed with excellent conditions, with a time of 10 minutes 32 seconds 064, which greatly exceeded the previous record.
This time, the new Urus, which ran on Pikes Peak with camouflage paint, is scheduled to make its world premiere in August 2022 as the Urus EVO.

For this time attack, the new Urus equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine is equipped with the safety equipment specified by Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The standard sports seats were changed to bucket seats with 6-point harnesses, and in addition to the roll cage, a safety fire extinguisher was also installed.

The tires (front 285/40 R22, rear 325/35 R22) are an evolved version of the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R used in the Urus. Jointly developed with Lamborghini based on Pirelli semi-slick tires developed to suit the characteristics of SUVs. A highly versatile tire that demonstrates high performance on dry road surfaces with high temperatures and wet road surfaces with low temperatures.

The new Urus is expected to debut as the Urus EVO, with a world premiere scheduled for August 2022.
