2020 Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept
The 2020 Lamborghini Urus ST-X is a race-spec concept version of the Urus, the company’s first-ever SUV. The concept vehicle previews a full-production SUV designed for a single-brand championship that will debut in 2020 in Europe and the Middle East. Conceived as a new "arrive and drive" experience in Lamborghini’s motorsport program, it will offer customers a complete package including the vehicle and technical support during race weekends.
Yes, the 2020 Urus ST-X will compete in a series very similar to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, reserved for race-spec Huracan models. Like all other track-bred Lambos, the 2020 Urus ST-X was designed and built by Lamborghini Squadra Corse.
2019 Lamborghini Urus by Novitec
Some vehicles don’t need to do anything to stand out. Some just show up and attract attention like a flame attracts moths. The Lamborghini Urus super-SUV is one such vehicle. The Urus stands out on its own in ways very few — if any — SUVs do. Maybe it’s the way it looks, or maybe it’s the Lamborghini badge on its hood. Either way, there’s little you can do to make the Urus stand out even more. Or is there?
Novitec tried to answer that question by creating an aftermarket program that’s specifically dedicated to Lamborghini’s high-performance SUV. The result is like a lot of Novitec’s past tuning programs. It looks meaner and, more importantly, it comes with power and performance upgrades that emphatically cast aside any notion that the Urus can’t stand out more than it already does.
2019 Lamborghini Urus by ABT Sportsline
With over 640 horsepower on tap from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, the Lamborghini Urus is already one of the fastest and most formidable SUVs in the market today. But as is always the case with the powerful, the status quo isn’t nearly good enough. There’s always a need for more, more, and more. That’s why when it came time to giving the Urus an aftermarket makeover, ABT Sportsline took a break from its assembly line of tuning projects for scattered Audi and Volkswagen models to turn its attention to the Italian SUV. The result is what you’d expect from the German tuner. The Lamborghini Urus now packs more punch to the tune of 700 horsepower and 671 pound-feet of torque. It’s not big of a jump from the Urus’ standard output, but when you’re playing around with models packing this amount of power, even the simplest of performance bumps goes a long way.
2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante
Lamborghini took the world by surprise back in 2012 when it unveiled the Urus Concept at Pebble Beach. It was the company’s first utility since the LM002 pickup truck and signaled a new direction for the brand. However, the Urus didn’t become a production model until five years later. Launched in late 2017, it became the fastest and most powerful SUV in the world, boasting performance similar to high-profile sports cars. With the Urus now set to hit public roads in 2018, we’re wondering what other versions are planned for the future. A hybrid model is almost a certainty, but is Lambo also considering a higher performance models? I think it does, and it could be very similar to the Huracan Performante.
Likely to wear the same "Performante" badge, the beefed-up SUV would take the Urus into previously uncharted territory in this segment. With more power, a lighter curb weight, and a chassis tuned for racing, the Urus Performante will be the most extreme production SUV I can think of right now. But will it become more than just a rendering? There’s no official confirmation yet, but I don’t see why Lambo would say no to it. There’s plenty of demand for extreme crossovers right now, as well as plenty of rich folks ready to pay in excess of $200,000 for one. Let’s find out what this SUV might bring to the table in my speculative review below.

2019 Lamborghini Urus
The SUV assault continues, filtering into every niche of every market imaginable. With so much demand out there, just about every automaker on the planet is getting in on the action, including some with a history that deviates quite a bit from the SUV norm. That includes Lamborghini, which just unveiled the Urus, a follow-up to the cult classic LM002. This time around, Lambo is doing it right, giving the Urus super car-esque agility, speed, and performance, all with a sharp (yet jacked-up) body style crammed with luxury and even a little off-road worthiness. Lambo is calling it the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle, but makes like Porsche and Bentley might have a few words to say about that.
Either way, this is a breakthrough moment for the Raging Bull. While the LM002 was arguably the brand’s first “real” SUV, you can’t really compare it to the hyperspeed Urus. While the old Ramboghini got square styling and somewhat plodding performance, the Urus looks and acts like a Lambo should. It’s also got the first-ever turbocharged engine in a Lambo. All told, Lamborghini claims this thing has a “dual personality” and is “multi-dimensional” in what it can do. But the question is this – where does it land amongst the bevy of fast luxury SUVs already on the market?

Rumors about a Lamborghini SUV were floating around for about five years before Lamborghini finally decided to ’fess up to the fact that the Italian brand was ready to jump headfirst into the SUV market. There was talk that a production Estoque was in the running as opposed to the SUV, but with the Porsche Cayenne’s growing sales and Bentley’s announcement of a future SUV, there was no way Lamborghini was going to miss out on the SUV honey pot. Now they have bought themselves some time before officially rolling out a production SUV by debuting the Lamborghini Urus Concept at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show.
Like with all other Lamborghini models, the new Urus name comes from the world of bulls. The Urus, also known as Aurochs, is one of the large, wild ancestors of domestic cattle. Urus bulls could measure up to 1.8 meters at the shoulder. How’s that for a little Discovery Channel information?
But back to the Urus Concept. The front end is clearly a mark of the Lamborghini brand and features elements already seen in models like the Aventador and the Sesto Elemento Concept. It also features the same red livery as seen in the previously announced Aventador J and the same coupe-like profile as seen on the BMW X6. Under the hood, Lamborghini has placed a 600 HP engine and has been promised that the Urus will offer the lowest CO2 figures of all comparable vehicles.
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed that a production version will arrive in 2017.
UPDATE 02/18/2013: Four grey-colored images have leaked from the Chinese patent office, showing off what we think is the production Urus. Check out the images in the gallery.

Rumors about a possible Lamborghini SUV have been circulating for a very long time, with the first whispers beginning back in 2007. Since then, Lamborghini has denied plans for the monster mobile numerous times, but after Bentley confirmed the addition of an SUV to their line-up, Lamborghini started drinking from the rumor pool for ideas. Now plans for a Lamborghini SUV are in full force, joining the Aventador and Gallardo on the list of Lamborghini’s newest models and nixing the thought of a production version of the Estoque.
Lamborghini unveiled a first concept version at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, but new reports are stating that the production version won’t be following it in the near future. Lamborghini CEO has confirmed that a production version won’t go on sale until late in 2017. This is actual a rather strange move considering Bentley is preparing to unveil their production version of the EXP 9 F SUV concept in the next three years.
The production version of the Lamborghini SUV will be powered by a revamped version of the Gallardo’s V10 gasoline unit, although the Urus concept came with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 600 HP.
"We definitely need a third line in the mid- and long term," said CEO Stephan Winkelmann to a German paper. "An SUV would be the first Lamborghini for everyday use, not just for the race track or weekends. We would have the opportunity to win new customers. It usually takes 48 months until an all-new vehicle arrives at dealers, so the new Lamborghini would not be available to buy before 2017."
Updated 07/12/2012: The British magazine CAR is reporting that next Lamborghini SUV will be priced at about €170,000 - or about $210,000 at the current exchange rates. With this price the production version will be about €20,000 ($25,000) cheaper than the Gallardo
