For now, the Urus ST-X concept gives us a taste of the upcoming track variant. This model debuted at the 2018 Lamborghini World finals, featuring a bold rear wing and side-exit exhausts in a hexagonal design, as well as 21-inch center-locking aluminum alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Lamborghini says the race car is 25 percent lighter than the standard production Urus, and it's capable on both on- and off-road circuits.

Other updates support safety, including a steel roll cage, fire suppression system, and FT3 fuel tank. Topping it all off is a Verde Mantis paint job and an exposed carbon fiber hood.
