The upcoming Lamborghini Urus, the company’s first-ever SUV, was finally spotted in production form on public roads. Although camouflaged almost entirel. The test vehicle reveals essential details about what Lambo promises to be the world’s fastest and most dynamic SUV.
The Lamborghini Urus SUV concept would be much lighter than some other SUVs. because of extensive usage of carbon fiber reinforced polymer. Although it is based on the same platform as the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, and Volkswagen Touareg. The Lamborghini Urus Super SUV will feature a 584 bhp turbocharged V8 engine by Audi. That includes an electric motor with plug-in hybrid capability. Lamborghini Urus has a front-engine, all-wheel-drive layout. New Lamborghini Urus is approximately 16 feet (4.9 m) long, but only about 5.5 feet (1.7 m) high. The Urus have a top speed of 205 mph (328 km/h), making it the world’s fastest SUV. Lamborghini is still considering this a concept car and are making decisions about tire size and engine type. The Urus seats four people.
The production Urus differ from the concept by not using Lamborghini’s hallmark naturally aspirated V10 or V12 engines. Instead, Lamborghini urus has developed a new 4.0L twin-turbo V8. Lamborghini claims this engine is solely used by Lamborghini, eschewing the idea. It is simply a retuned version of Audi’s 4.0L V8 that is used across the Audi lineup. And shared with Bentley in the Continental V8 coupe and Flying Spur V8.
Specification of Lamborghini Urus
The Urus’ interior is pretty much a mystery right now. But I expect Lambo to step away from the usual layout seen in the Huracan and Aventador supercars. This require a transition to the typical SUV interior with a wide center console. And a tall center stack, as well as a revised seating position, among others.
One of Lamborghini’s key focal points with the Urus is to make its interior rock solid. Unlike most SUVs, the Urus will only hold up to four adults. One driver and three passengers. But the experience of sitting in the Urus concept is described as like “wearing a perfectly made-to-measure suit” by Lamborghini. The interior is an area where a sports car can put on a ton of pounds. So Lamborghini built nearly every interior component from carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer. That drastically reduces weight. It remains to be seen whether this will also be available for the production. But I do expect it to use numerous lightweight components.
Lowering the clutter behind the steering wheel was another focal point for the concept. as the only items behind the wheel are the paddle shifters. Turn signals, lights, and wipers are all controlled via the multi-function steering wheel or the screen behind the steering wheel. Don’t expect that feature to make it to production though, as too many laws regulate the headlight and turn signal interfaces to allow this type of function. While many of the concept’s cabin features won’t be offered in the actual Urus. Look for the typical luxury that comes with a Lambo. Including soft leather and Alcantara, contrast stitching, aluminum and carbon-fiber inlays, as well as an array of customization options.
One of the biggest reasons for the LM002’s failure is likely that it was not recognizable as a Lamborghini. It looked more like a Humvee with a Lambo emblem on it. The Lamborghini Urus, on the other hand, at least according to the concept car, is distinctly a Lamborghini. Featuring all of the hard angles and aggressive styling a Lambo buyer would expect. Although clearly an SUV, the features are heavily inspired by the Aventador and share some of the cues seen on the more recent Huracan model.
The frontward-pointing arrow design of the concept is the first thing that screams “Lamborghini,” as this is a staple on nearly every raging. Bull for as long as we can remember. The headlights are slightly smaller than the flagship Aventador. But they still create the “Y” shape that we all know, and they boast LED bulbs on the inside. Lamborghini urus also sports the large air intake cutouts in the front bumper. That closely resemble the Aventador’s intake cutouts.
The concept’s roof line has a very subtle, but noticeable, double hump feature. This roof line sweeps rearward, through a slight rooftop spoiler, to likely one of the sexiest back ends you’ll ever see on a fat SUV. Boasting the signature Lamborghini Lamborghini hard angles and stylized taillights. Beneath these shapely taillights are four exhaust exits — two on each side.
The current Lamborghini lineup is powered by naturally aspirated V-10 and V-12 engines. The Italians will use a twin-turbocharged V-8 for the Urus. The news was confirmed in 2015, when CEO Stephan Winkelmann and R&D boss Maurizio Reggiani said that the twin-turbo unit will displace 4.0 liters. The interesting bit here is that the powerplant was specifically developed for Lamborghini and won’t be borrowed from Audi. That has a similar mill that cranks out in excess of 550 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque in several models, but it remains to be seen how much of this is actually true.
There’s no word about specific output. But it’s already a fact that Lamborighini wants the Urus to be the most powerful in its class. Given that the Bentley Bentayga is currently the most powerful SUV at 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The Urus could end up being more powerful than the 610-horsepower Huracan.
The Lamborghini Urus is still a year away from production, there are reports saying that it will have a £180,000 sticker. That converts to around $225,000 as of February 2017. That’s quite a pretty penny for an SUV and a sticker that would make it more expensive. than the Bentley Bentayga Bentley Bentayga . On the other hand, it could cost less than the Huracan. meaning it will become the most affordable raging bull in the current lineup.
Lamborghini predicts the SUV’s biggest markets will be the United States, China, and the Middle East. When it lands, the off-roader will have to fend off serious competition from the Bentley Bentayga. High-end versions of the Maserati Levante and the Porsche Cayenne, and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
