The First Super-SUV Ever

This is the Lamborghini Urus

It was unveiled in Sant’ Agata Bolognese in Italy and it is the world’s first super-SUV ever!

This long-awaited SUV will fill the gap in the Lamborghini’s lineup that was missing before. Lamborghini, a brand known for creating super cars only is one of the last to add an SUV to its portfolio. And that is what makes the Urus a super-SUV.

The Urus has a 650-horsepower, 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine with 850 Nm of torque controlled by a 4WD, eight-speed automatic transmission.

It can hit 100kph in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 190 mph. The standard model rolls on 21-inch rims and comes with adaptive air suspension and carbon ceramic brakes, as well as active roll stabilization.

Inside, the Urus has a slim dashboard inspired by the no-nonsense, military-style LM002 truck. Lamborghini-signature hexagonal shapes grace the air vents, door handles, and cup holders.

It can seat either four or five depending on what the buyer chooses, a rear bench seat or a 2+2 seating format.

High-quality leather, alcantara, carbon fiber, and polished woods complete the inside furnishings. Because Lamborghini upgrades are exactly that, 23-inch rims, 1,700 watt Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system with 21 speakers, an off-road package with reinforced bumpers and underfloor protection.

Urus also features new technologies for Lamborghini as a rear tailgate that is electrically operated via a switch on the driver’s door, a button on the key, or a manual button on the tailgate itself.

Deliveries of the Urus start in Spring 2018.
