Lamborghini sent a squad of Urus SUVs to conquer Iceland
Could this be the toughest challenge for SUVs?
Last month Lamborghini sent seven Lamborghinis to conquer Iceland. This was part of their 'Avventura' series to discover the most beautiful places and roads in the world.
The journey took two days in which they travelled 900 km (560 miles), where the cars and drivers were pushed to the limits. They faced nippy wind, rain, rough terrain and even snow.
They started in Reykjanes peninsula in the South West and continued driving along the Southern coast. They saw everything from the cliffs of Krysuvikurberg (which is named after two trolls according to folklore) to the promontory of Dyrhólaey (a large natural stone arch that projects out into the sea).
They also went to the iceberg lagoon of Fjallsárlón which is at the Southern end of the Vatnajökull glacier and the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón. You might think that going off-road might have been a challenge for these SUVs but thanks to the Urus' 'Terra' mode it had no issue, even on the moss-covered lava fields near the Laki volcano.
Specs of the Lamborghini Urus
Quickly imagine the sound those seven SUVs made while they travelled through Iceland with their 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 that can produce a total of 641 hp. Its top speed is 305 km/h (190 mph) making it the fastest production SUV.
0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) just takes a blistering 3.6 seconds, while 0-200 km/h (124 mph) is done in 12.8 seconds. Thanks to the engineering and design of the Lamborghini Urus, it went where no Lamborghini has travelled before .
What do you think?
Do you think that what Lamborghini has done in Iceland is the ultimate challenge for all SUVs to conquer? Could the Urus even be the coolest Lamborghini to be built today? Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for reading.
