The Lamborghini Urus is the "Super SUV" you'll definitely want to drive

The Lamborghini Urus is the

The SUV "allows you to travel on any terrain: on road, off road, on ice but also on sand dunes", said Lamborghini research and development director Maurizio Reggiani, suggesting it will be the fastest SUV on the market.

That helps the Urus accelerate from 0-62mph in just 3.6 seconds, 0-125mph in 12.8 seconds and onto a top speed of 190mph.

The new Urus is powered by a 4.0 litre V8 twin turbo engine that comes with an impressive 650 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque.

The long-awaited SUV comes with a good look at its specifications.

But the auto, which is the first utility vehicle produced by the firm for more than 20 years, has something of a dual personality, straddling the line between sports and luxury. This being Lamborghini, upgrades are always upgrades, such as 23-inch rims, a 1,700 watt Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system with 21 speakers, or an off-road package with reinforced bumpers and underfloor protection.

It is Lamborghini's first SUV since the LM002, which it built between 1986 and 1993.




John Giunta, a Lamborghini dealer in Sarasota, Florida said, "Now we live in a different world".

Following Lamborghini's tradition of bovine-related names, the Urus is named after a wild ancestor of domestic cattle. Lamborghini is among the last automakers worldwide who has added an SUV or crossover to its portfolio of models.

Chief executive officer Stefano Domenicali has often said the Volkswagen Group-owned house is working to soften its tone from the racer-boy image of the past.

With the launch of the Lamborghini Urus and the pending arrival of the Aston Martin DBX and Rolls-Royce High Side Vehicle, 29,300 units of luxury SUVs are expected to be sold in 2020.

"A bull is always aggressive, but I would like to give us a new philosophy toward the future: A bull can be gentle", he said a year ago.

Inspired by military-design, the vehicle was nicknamed the "Rambo Lambo", but the Urus takes on a much edgier, sleeker style more in vein of the company's sports cars. Comparing the Urus with the Huracan Performante, the SUV comes very close to matching the sports auto.
