There's a development around the previous report of a more powerful Lamborghini Urus in the future. While it was mentioned that the performance version of the super SUV is already underway, Digital Trends has reported that it will be based on the Urus ST-X Concept – an off-road track-only version of the Urus that's meant to spark a single-brand championship that combines racetrack and off-road track in a single race.

The Urus ST-X Concept has minimal upgrades from the regular Urus, focusing primarily on things that would allow the SUV to race such as roll cages, torsional stiffening, bigger intakes, and weight reduction using carbon fiber parts.

However, if you would like to imagine what the future performance version of the Urus would look like, it isn't a far cry to look right at the ST-X Concept for some visual representation. 

This hypothesis was supported by Maurizio Reggiani, head of Lamborghini R&D, who was asked by Digital Trends if the Urus ST-X Concept would spawn a "super-Urus." The R&D honcho answered "yes" without providing further details.

It's also important to note that a more powerful Urus is on its way to becoming "overdue," considering that the SUVs that share its platform are well into the idea. The Bentley Bentayga Speed has been revealed in Geneva, boasting a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 that makes 626 hp (467 kW) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm). The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, on the other hand, is also on its way, packing 677 hp (505 kW) and 626 lb-ft (849 Nm).

For reference, the current Urus has a maximum output of 641 hp (478 kW) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm). It's safe to safe that the Urus SV or Urus Performante, or whatever Lamborghini will call the super-Urus, would have more oomphs that its siblings.
