After waiting for years, Lamborghini have finally introduced their new super SUV to the world. The all new Lamborghini URUS was unveiled today after a successful and long run of marketing and hype. The Urus is being termed as the successor to the legendary LM002.

The Urus will be available in only one engine option of a 4.0 litre twin turbo charged V8 which produces 650hp and 850Nm of torque. All of this power will be put down using a four wheel drive system with limited slip differential and dynamic torque distribution. Now this is an SUV but at the end of the day it's a Lamborghini so it will make sure that you are not driving a two tonne heavy piece of metal. Using all of this power and four wheel drive system, the Urus can achieve 0-100kmph in 3.6 seconds while going all the way upto 305kmph.

Talking about the brakes, the Urus has the biggest brake rotors ever seen on a production vehicle on planet Earth. At the front, it has been equipped with giant 440mm carbon ceramic discs with 10 piston calipers while the rear axle is fitted with 370mm carbon ceramics with 6 piston floating calipers.

The Urus has six different driving modes including the new NEVE and SABIA modes for driving on snow and desert/sandy regions respectively. Apart from the given six modes, the URUS features the EGO mode from the Aventador S which allows the driver to customize suspension, traction and steering individually.
