The Lamborghini Super SUV - The Urus is Fast and Sexy

The new Urus is a visionary approach based on the infusion of Lamborghini DNA into the SUV.

When was the last time you saw an SUV and thought my that's sexy?


Probably never.


Lamborghini, the exotic Italian sports car maker, has changed that with the launch of its Urus SUV early in December.


According to the company, the Urus features a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 hp (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm, maximum 6,800 rpm, and 850 Nm of maximum torque already at 2,250 rpm. With 162.7 hp/l the Urus claims one of the highest specific power outputs in its class and the best weight-to-power ratio at 3,38 kg/hp.


The Lamborghini Urus is a visionary approach based on the infusion of Lamborghini DNA into the most versatile vehicle, the SUV. The Urus elevates the SUV to a level not previously possible, the Super SUV. It is a true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, driving dynamics and emotion as well as drivable every day in a range of environments, says Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The Urus fits perfectly within the Lamborghini family as a high performance car. It is the culmination of intensive development and passionate skill to create a new breed of bull: a Super SUV that transcends the boundaries of expectations and opens the door to new possibilities, for both our brand and our customers. Signore Domenicali was formerly the team principal of the Ferrari Formula One team from 2008 to 2014 so he ought to be an expert on speed.



The Urus accelerates from 0-100 km/h (about 63mph) in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h (about 125mph) in 12.8 seconds, and with a top speed of 305 km/h (189.5mph) it is the fastest SUV available. There are six driving modes making it drivable in many situations. Speculation is that the Urus will cost you just under $200,000 compared to the Bentley Bentayga, which lists at $229,000, making the British marque (now owned by Volkswagen of Germany) the most expensive SUV for now.


Like the television commercials of old, but wait, there's more, you can customize your URUS - although it might take a trip to Italy to fully equip your new super SUV. Carbon fiber luggage manufacturer Tecknomonster has created two travel sets, each consisting of four suitcases, designed specifically for the Urus' trunk. All of the customizable accessories are only available at Lamborghini's Sant'Agata Bologna headquarters in the dedicated Collezione Ad Personam showroom.
