Automobili Lamborghini’s third vehicle in its supercar line-up and carving a whole new niche in the luxury segment as the first ever Super Sport Utility Vehicle, the Lamborghini Urus.
At a base price of £162,000 for the entry model, it goes up against rivals such as the Bentley Bentayga, Range Rover Sport SVR and the Mercedes-AMG G 63. A hot seller and with back orders of at least a few months, you’ll be well into 2019 before you can get your hands on a new one.
You’ll be forgiven for boyishly chuckling at a couple of bodily related puns that come to mind when hearing the name Urus, but it’s origin is derived from the world of bulls, a long standing tradition at Lamborghini and boldly portrayed in the company branding. The Urus, also known as Aurochs, is one of the large, wild ancestors of domestic cattle. The Spanish fighting bull, as bred for the past 500 years, is still very close to the Urus in its appearance.
The Lamborghini Urus is as much a luxury SUV as the most powerful, with a super sports car dynamism to be enjoyed by both driver and passengers. Its low-line coupé styling, commanding road presence, higher ground clearance, and luxurious space within, together with the latest technologies allow for a very comfortable ride in the city as well as providing maximum comfort on long journeys. The Lamborghini Urus has a dual, multi-dimensional personality and can be specified to be as sporty or as elegant as the owner wishes, and can equally be used as a daily luxury drive or provide an exhilarating super sports experience.
With pure Lamborghini in its DNA, the Lamborghini Urus envokes driving emotion with its benchmarking power, performance, driving dynamics, unparalleled design and luxury.
Powered by a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine producing 650 hp (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 850 Nm of maximum torque at 2,250 rpm, the Lamborghini Urus sprints from 0-62 mph in a mere 3.6 seconds thanks to its 4WD system with active torque vectoring; reaching a top speed of 190 mph it claims one of the highest specific power outputs in its class and the best weight-to-power ratio at 3,38 kg/hp.
The Urus fitted with four-wheel steering for perfect handling and carbon ceramic brakes, adaptive air suspension and active roll stabilization for maximum safety and comfort. Up to six different driving modes + EGO mode available via ‘Tamburo’ driving dynamics selector.
