Lamborghini Urus Graphite Capsule: Just a cosmetic touch or there's more to it?
Lamborghini ups the styling ante with the Urus Graphite Capsule.
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," asserted one engineer at Lamborghini. The other one quashed him by saying, "but we must make it look new so that we can market it as 'all new.' " Of course the latter won the brawl and hence, we now have yet another edition to reinvigorate the Urus' charm in all its glory. Say "Hello" to the Urus Graphite Capsule, an absurd name for sure but one which aggrandizes its significance and through the concise phrase, brags of all that it gets on and under the metal.
Without the use of any alluring verbiage, this is a special edition of the Urus to keep it fierce against its competition which surpasses its own siblings, the Audi RSQ8, the Porsche Cayenne et al. It gets a heavy dose of neon and black bits for a striking presence on the grit.
It all begins with the four new exterior colours that are available in matte finish with the sobriquet Bianco Monocerus (White), Nero Noctis (black), Grigio Nimbus (grey with bling) and Grigio Keres (grey) with striking neon highlights and some more neat detailing. Any of the colours one chooses will also be applied on the lower parts of the body such as the front, side and rear sills. The neon choices too, will come in a multitude of 4 options for a tighter and meaner look which feature Arancio Leonis (orange), Arancio Dryope (reddish orange), Giallo Taurus (yellow) and Verde Scandal (a very different shade of hue). These neon highlights will come present on the front splitters, door inserts and even the rear spoiler for a pulchritudinal but bad boy which concomitants the car's disposition.
Further, the car also wears 23 inch wheels that have been sourced from Taigete which is another bit exclusive to the Graphite Capsule and finally, the car also gets a new black chrome finish for the rear exhausts which happens to be the feather on the cap to liven up its corpulent body.
In case you think all this would be a case of too little, too late, Lamborghini has also given similar embellishments on the inside. There is a dim anodised aluminium trim on the dashboard and door panels with matte finish on carbon fibre sliver. The exterior accent colour also trickles down to the interior upholstery and is applied to the leather trim, seat bolster inserts and the embroidered Lamborghini logo on the headrests. This edition will also get you ventilated alcantara to rant about novel bells and whistles.
As expected, this edition does not bring with it any changes under the hood. Which means we can expect the same 4.0-litre V12 configuration with 650 hp and 850 Nm of torque mated to the brilliant all-wheel drive layout.
