It’s finally here. The world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle which comes with the attitude of a raging bull and the heart of a modern supercar.
Today Lamborghini unveiled the Urus and it’s gunning to be the fastest SUV in the world. Packing more contoured lines than Steve Tyler’s face, the Urus features unrestrained styling that already sets it apart from all the other SUVs in the luxury performance segment.
Under the sleek four-door body is a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 which pumps out 485kW of power and 850Nm of torque sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Whilst Lamborghini’s claim of a sub-2,200kg weight isn’t anything to celebrate in the supercar world, it’s a decent achievement in the big SUV world. This helps the Urus get to 100km/h in just 3.6 seconds before topping out at 305km/h.
Other performance enhancements that join the Urus includes carbon ceramic brakes as standard, active roll control and a torque vectoring rear differential for quicker corner speeds. The car also features quite a few drive modes to choose from including Strada, Sport, Corsa and Neve (Snow), Terra (off-road) and Sabbia (sand). The air suspension on the Urus raises for off-road applications whilst sportier drives will lower it.
With the arrival of the Urus, Lamborghini is already gunning for some high-profile targets including which includes stripping the Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV of its crown as the world’s fastest SUV on the Nurburgring.
