Though the Lamborghini Urus did not enter the official race, however, the time was noted by official timekeepers of the climb. Lamborghini informed the new Urus' performance exceeded both the previous PPIHC sanctioned non-race day manufacturer record of 12:35.610 set by Paul Dallenbach in 2014 and the current race day record of 10:49.902 achieved by Rhys Millen which was set in a Bentley Bentayga in 2018.

Automobili Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer Rouven Mohr said that Pikes Peak is the most famous and challenging hillclimb event in the world and the new Lamborghini Urus model superseded the team's expectations. “The uneven track layout tests the chassis’ balance; the significant altitude differences stress the powertrain, and the weather conditions can change very rapidly between start to finish," added Mohr.
