Lamborghini Reveals Urus Super SUV

Lamborghini have finally revealed their new Urus 'SSUV', and it doesn't disappoint.

More than 5 years after revealing the Urus concept at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, Lamborghini have unveiled the production version, which promises to deliver groundbreaking performance for a car in its sector, and frankly looks stunning.

The Urus shares its platform with its VAG cousins - Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Toureg - and is powered by a twin-turbocharged, 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 641 hp, marking Lamborghini's first ever turbocharged vehicle.

The Super Sports Utility Vehicle is capable of sprinting from 0-62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, and on to a top speed of 190 mph. The price will start at around £165,000, so expect to pay north of £200,000 for a well-equipped example. Deliveries will begin in Spring 2018, with UK dealers getting their first demo cars around April.

Interestingly, Lamborghini have stated their intention to release a plug-in hybrid variant of the Urus in the future, which should deliver better MPG, and allow the abundance of environment-conscious Lamborghini customers guilt-free driving.

The car features six driving modes, including the usual Strada, Sport and Corsa, as well as Neve (snow), Terra (land) and Sabbia (sand), which is a sign that the car is more than just a Chelsea tractor, and possesses genuine off-road capabilities - the likes of which may rarely be utilised.

Thanks to the rear-wheel steering system imported over from the Aventador S, the Urus should deliver excellent handling on tarmac. The engine is mounted as low as possible in the chassis for a low centre of gravity, and a special range of Pirelli tyres has been developed for the car.
