We are like opposites on it.... I like the back, but that front is not good looking. It sits to high up. That nose looks like it should be hugging the ground, not pointing at the sky.... It looks like a Huracan that has been lifted and had its nose kicked in......

Embrace The Comedy Of A Giant Lamborghini Urus Getting Flung Around The Nürburgring






GIF

GIF via statesidesupercars
It’s no LM002, but the upcoming Lamborghini Urus is still pretty darn big. How big? Big enough to have a chuckle at when you see the testing video.


That’s a mass bigger than some of our apartments, except it’s a truck flying down the Nürburgring’s infamous twisty Nordschleife course. It looks like something that shouldn’t happen, but does happen anyway against all laws of nature and physics, usually to see if the drivetrain’s any good by maxing it out in a place with no speed limits. I love everything about that.













While there’s plenty of luxury SUVs being built with track use in mind, every one of us who’s actually been in one of those supertrucks on a track has said that it’s a bit of a disorienting experience to sit up that high when you’re flogging a vehicle on a road course like this. It’s the best kind of insanity to watch, though.

The Urus is yet another ultra-SUV built on the same extremely good Volkswagen Group huge-car platform as the Bentley Bentayga, Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Tourareg. But don’t call it a fancy Touareg just yet. It’s set to be Lambo’s first plug-in hybrid and its carbon fiber -heavy body has a bit more of an angular, sort-of-Lambo-like shape.

That being said, the current “make it look like our cars” strategy just makes us miss the crazy Lego brick known as the LM002. Someone please whip an LM002 around the Nordschleife next, please.

Watch Lamborghini Covertly Building The New Urus




Lamborghini is in the process of an enormous shift. It's doubled the size of its factory and is rolling out its first crossover – a model that's expected to double its sales and manufacturing output.

We have yet to see the finalized production version of the Urus, revealed in concept form more than half a decade ago. But we've been getting bits and pieces, and this is our latest.

This video shows ostensibly showcases Lamborghini's production methods and the expansion of its home base in Sant'Agata Bolognese. But if you watch closely enough, you'll see that it's not the Huracan or Aventador that the line workers are assembling.

No, this one has two doors on each side and the engine up front. This, in other words, is the Urus.

It's still just bits and pieces, with the finished bodywork still to be revealed. But it's coming... and coming soon. In fact the Raging Bull marque has already confirmed the vehicle's debut for December 4, which is now less than a month away.

Lamborghini Urus Jumps Over Sand Dunes In 'Sabbia' Mode





After years of development, Lamborghini has finally started to provide a closer glimpse into their second SUV - the Urus.

Teased ahead of its December 4 presentation, the company's third vehicle, after the Huracan and Aventador, features the usual Strada, Sport, and Corsa driving modes, in addition to three new ones: Terra (land), Neve (snow), and Sabbia (sand).

And while the first two will technically provide it with additional grip on challenging terrains, the latter is clearly aimed at having fun on the sand dunes, so those wealthy Middle Eastern buyers will definitely grow fond of it, during the occasional dune bashing, and not only.

Inspired by the Urus Concept shown more than 5 years ago, the spiritual successor of the LM002 will take some important steps aside from the Huracan and Aventador. It will not only be suitable for everyday drive, but it will also use a 4.0-liter twin-turbo'd V8 engine, unlike the naturally aspirated V10 and V12 used by its supercar siblings.

The unit is expected to develop approximately 650hp, which in theory will make it faster than the W12-powered Bentley Bentayga.

Lamborghini teases Urus playing in the snow in Neve mode



We are less than a month away from Lamborghini unveiling the production Urus SUV, and that means the teasers are being released at a rapid rate. The latest highlights the Urus' Neve mode.
Neve is Italian for snow, meaning snow mode for the electronic stability control and other vehicle systems. Last week, we saw a teaser video showing the Urus taking on the sand using Sabbia mode (sand mode). The other new mode debuting on the Urus is Terra (earth). Of course, the typical Lamborghini Strada (street), Sport, and Corsa (track) modes will be on-board as well.
In case you've forgotten, the Urus will likely be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 producing approximately 650 horsepower. All-wheel drive should be standard, and four-wheel steering will be on the menu to enhance handling.
Why four-wheel steering? Because this is a Lamborghini SUV and it will be ridiculous in all the ways, from its design inside and out to its staggering top speed of 187 mph. The Italian automaker is counting on breaking the current SUV Nürburgring lap-time record set by Alfa Romeo with the Stelvio Quadrifoglio.

First Look Inside The 2019 Lamborghini Urus Reveals High-Tech Cockpit





We’re about three weeks away from the official debut of the new Lamborghini Urus but images of its interior have already surfaced online.

Courtesy of Instagram user altdynamic, the images reveal the dashboard of the new Lambo SUV which features the latest display technologies of the VW Group mixed with the Italian company’s familiar hexagone-based theme.

Just like the latest generation of the Audi A8 and A7, the new Lamborghini Urus makes use of two digital displays, one for infotainment purposes and one for the HVAC controls while the driver’s gauges are digital as expected.

The air-vents follow a similar design with the Huracan while the center console appears to have the same flip-switch red cover for the engine start/stop button. A pair of dramatically styled knobs is positioned on both sides of the engine start button, controlling the different driving modes of the car as shown in the recently released teaser videos. A new touchpad controller is also present.

A twin-turbo V8 with around 650hp will enable the new Lamborghini Urus to make some bold claims in terms of on-road performance but the Italian company also promises to offer true off-road capabilities as a nod to the classic LM002.

Lamborghini will reveal the new Urus on December 4 at its HQ in Sant’Agata, with the first deliveries expected to start in mid-2018. Stay tuned for more in the next days.

As well as how it handles dirt roads



It’s been more than five years since we got our first look at the Lamborghini Urus concept. But next month, Lamborghini plans to officially reveal its new SUV. As big fans of the original Lamborghini SUV, the LM002, we’re excited to see what the Italian supercar manufacturer has done with the Urus. While we wait, though, Lamborghini’s releasing a string of video teasers.
In the one below, Lamborghini highlights the Urus’ “Terra” driving mode, a word that literally translates to “land” but appears to be more of an off-road configuration. It’s a short teaser, so there isn’t a lot of information to gather, but based on how many shots show the Urus hanging its tail out, it’s safe to assume its all-wheel-drive system will be rear-biased like Lamborghini’s road cars.

2 Photos
But as you can see in the photo above, the video also shows off the Urus’ instrument cluster for the first time. It looks to be all digital, emphasizing the tachometer which gear you’re in, with the speed less prominently displayed. As you see in quite a few other off-road vehicles, the Urus also shows you both pitch and roll. With six different drive modes, though, expect the gauge cluster to change based on which mode you have the car in.
A previous Urus teaser showed off its performance in the sand but also hinted at a possible rear-wheel-steer feature. Lamborghini only recently began offering rear-wheel steering, starting with the Centenario.
Over the next few weeks, expect Lamborghini to release more teasers before finally revealing the Urus on December 4.

Lamborghini Urus accidentally revealed in driving mode trailer

Blink and you'll miss it.




In the lead-up to the launch of the Lamborghini Urus, the company has been posting trailers demonstrating the SUV's various drive modes. The latest of them shows off the "Corsa" track mode, but it shows off even more than that. As previously reported by Road & Track and CarScoops, an early version of the trailer, a clip shows the various modes on screen next to a completely uncovered version of the production Urus.



Lamborghini has since removed that version of the trailer, replacing it with a different video. The new one zooms in on the lower screen to avoid showing the actual SUV. But because this is the Internet, once the first version was out, there was no going back. Above, we have the old trailer posted by another YouTube channel, and the image of the Urus is visible at the 12-second mark. But we've also provided a screenshot in case you don't catch it.

For fans of the Urus concept, the image is pretty much good news. It looks extremely similar to the concept, full of angles, a fastback roofline that drops quickly to the tail and a very angry-looking fascia. The headlights seem to have a bit less of a squinty scowl, and the grille now has some toothy additions at the bottom of the bumper. But overall, it's basically the Urus concept brought to production.



We also get some decent looks at the interior. There are three screens in total: one for the instrument panel and two for infotainment. The bottom of those two appears to be used for climate control. The drive modes and shifter controls are in the center around the starter button. They all seem to use big levers that look like miniature throttle controls from a plane or boat.

This Is How Good The Lamborghini Urus Sounds In Corsa Mode




With less than a week left until the Urus' unveiling on December 4, Lamborghini continues to dissect its upcoming luxury crossover.

The latest video released by the Italian automaker shows Chief Technical Officer Maurizio Reggiani talking about the SUV, and telling us how they were challenged to bring the DNA of their supercars into the crossover model.

However, that's not the most important part, as the Lamborghini Urus exposes its turbo'd V8 symphony in Sport and Corsa modes. According to the company's official, the SUV becomes "increasingly aggressive as you move into Sport and Corsa, triggering all those emotions that one associates with driving a Lamborghini."

The Italian super SUV will have all the necessary assets to make those deep-pocketed enthusiasts forget about its cousin, the Bentley Bentayga. The list includes an aggressive design, reminiscent to the Huracan and Aventador, a high-tech cockpit, and a powerful 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine under the hood.

It's been reported that the Urus needs only 3.3 seconds to sprint from naught to 100km/h (62mph), and tops out at over 302km/h (188mph).

These numbers should help it break the Nurburgring lap record for production SUVs, and to do so, it needs to be faster around the (in)famous German track than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV, which posted a time of 7min and 51.7sec, a couple of months ago.

Lamborghini Urus interior leaked



Lamborghini Urus interior leaked - Image via Instagram user toysforboysbrasil

Next week, Lamborghini will reveal the Urus, the brand's first sport utility vehicle since the classic LM002, but ahead of the reveal an Instagram user by the name of toysforboysbrasil has posted some photos that show the wild SUV's interior completely uncloaked.
The Instagram post shared two photos of the Urus' interior, which houses typical Lamborghini interior styling. And one of the shots shows a depiction of the Urus' exterior design in the infotainment screen atop the center stack.
The Urus' center stack features an angled design, and a chunky flat-bottom steering wheel sits in front of the driver. The entire gauge cluster looks digital. The starter button is located in the typical Lambo position: under a red cover at the base of the center stack. It appears that the shifter is located just in front of the starter button and the mode selector is off to the left of it.
It also looks like the cabin is wrapped in plenty of leather accented by metallic trim. It definitely appears to be a pleasant place to spend some time.
We expect drivers sitting inside the Urus will look over a hood housing a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with an estimated 650 horsepower. Power will likely find its way to all four wheel via standard all-wheel drive, too.
We'll have full details on the Urus when it debuts on December 4. Stay tuned.

Look At That - Lamborghini Urus Has Asterion-Inspired Taillights





Lamborghini has finally removed the covers from the Urus in their latest teaser, as the super SUV is fast approaching its official presentation date on December 4.

This allows us to take a closer look at some of its design elements, and the first thing that caught our eye is the pattern of the taillights, with "Lamborghini" lettering in between, which resembles that of the shelved Asterion hybrid supercar.

The Lamborghini Urus gets some large air intakes at the front, meant to keep its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine cool, which, by the way, is confirmed in this teaser video as well. We also see the headlights that incorporate LED DRLs, the roof-mounted spoiler for increased downforce, quad tailpipes, and carbon fiber elements.

We already caught a glimpse of the interior design as well, which is as sporty as expected, with two-tone leather seats, flat-bottom steering wheel, ANIMA selector, unique switchgear, a generous infotainment system, and even more carbon fiber, adorning different parts of the dashboard and central console.

At this rate, unveiling the Urus next week will be a mere routine, as its performance was brought into discussion as well: 3.7sec for the 0 to 100km/h (62mph) sprint, or 3.35sec during testing, and a top speed in excess of 302km/h (188mph), so what else would you like to know about it?

This'll Be The Last Time Lamborghini Will Tease Us About The Urus





Five and a half years. That's how long it's been since Lamborghini first unveiled the Urus as a concept at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show.

Over the course of that time, it's hemmed and hawed, begged and pleaded, and more than anything, kept us on our toes about putting the crossover into production.

That all comes to an end tomorrow when the Raging Bull marque finally reveals the production model. But before it does, Lamborghini has released one last teaser video.

The clip features the company's chief executive Stefano Domenicali looking back on the process that has taken it to this point, and forward to what's about to come.

Just what that will be is, in Lamborghini's own terms, “the world's first Super Sport Utility Vehicle” – one that will not only change the company that's been gearing up for years now to build it, but put all other performance-oriented luxury crossovers and SUVs in their place.

Lamborghini joins the boom in supercar SUVs with Urus unveiling




(Photo: HO, AFP/Getty Images)





Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story had old images of the Lamborghini Urus provided on the company's media site. The images have since been updated to the current model of the vehicle.
MILAN — Supercar makers have long known that parked next to that snarling Lamborghini, racing-red Ferrari, or stately Bentley at some of the globe's toniest addresses is a practical SUV. With the sport-utility vehicle market growing by leaps and bounds, they increasingly want in on those profits.
Lamborghini unveils the once-improbable Urus SUV on Monday at its headquarters in Sant'Agata, Italy, where the supercar maker owned by the Volkswagen group is expanding the factory to meet utility vehicle demand. The Urus enters a luxury field crowded with the Mercedes G-Class, the Bentley Bentayga and the trailblazing Porsche Cayenne — and soon to be joined by Aston Martin, Rolls Royce and, in all probability, Ferrari.
Analysts say that the move into SUVs has become a natural fit for most brands, even supercar makers like Lamborghini, despite the risk of alienating aficionados.
"I think if you look at those brands' image, I think you would look at an SUV — especially a Lamborghini — as almost a sell-out move. I don't think that is the case anymore," Jeff Schuster, senior vice president at LMC Automotive in Detroit. "There is some risk to the purist, who can only see one view of the brand. But as long as they don't move too far out of who they are, a lineup can include an SUV in these brands. I wouldn't have said that five years ago."
From bring nonexistent in 2006, high-end SUVs have more than quadrupled in sales since 2010, from 4,700 units to almost 21,000 units in 2016, driven by the Mercedes G-Class and Bentley Bentayga, according to IHS Automotive. The entry of the Urus along with the planned Aston Martin DBX and Rolls Royce "High Side Vehicle" is expected to push those numbers up to 29,300 by 2020. Even Ferrari is considering entering the category, with a decision expected early next year, which could leave McLaren as the only hold-out among supercars.

Lamborghini Offically Unveils The 641HP Urus SUV - Who Should Run, Duck And Cover?











Lamborghini has officially re-entered the SUV sector, as their brand new, high-performance Urus SUV looks ready slay any and all opponents in its segment.



According to Lamborghini, the Urus' 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine will help it fit in perfectly alongside the Aventador and the Gallardo, and based on sheer numbers alone, it's easy to understand why.

The Los Angeles Auto Show (LAAS) photo galleries are sponsored by Lexus.

Lamborghini Urus Design Changes: 2012 Concept Vs. 2017 Final Version



What's changed over five years? We take a closer look at the details.



It was back in 2012 at the Beijing Motor Show when Lamborghini unveiled its Urus SUV concept. Yesterday, with less than a month left of 2017, the production version finally had its debut. Five years is nearly an eternity in the auto industry, but it’s still pretty remarkable just how much of the Urus concept design has remained intact. At the same time, there are many changes, as is always the case from concept to production. In March 2016, Lamborghini appointed a new chief designer, Mitja Borkert, and one of his first tasks was to finalize the Urus design.



The concept was styled by his predecessor, but Borkert had the opportunity to make the Urus his own. For starters, it looks bulkier than the concept, especially up front. The 2019 Urus has a massive front grille. That makes sense because this is the first front-engined Lamborghini since its SUV predecessor, the LM002. That 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 needs to breathe somehow. The front headlights are similar but still different. There’s definitely some Centenario Y signature influence there. Notice the overall body sculpting, notably the aggressive rear wheel arch. Again, very similar but the production version is slightly more pronounced, perhaps because of the beefy side sills.




Proportionally, it’s obvious the concept and production version ride on two different platforms. This makes complete sense considering the Urus shares an architecture with its VW Group SUV stablemates, the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, and Bentley Bentayga. The concept’s wheels, for example, are larger in proportion to the body. The front air vent, located behind the front wheel, is now significantly smaller. Moving out back, the C-pillar has become thicker because the production Urus is longer than the concept. This is all the more evident with the now longer rear overhang. The 2019 Urus features a now functional rear diffuser which, again, adds extra bulk.




The rear exhaust pipes are now oval-shaped as opposed to the previous hexagon styling. Because of engineering reasons, Borkert added a pair of rear vents just below the taillights. Speaking of which, the Y signature theme continues here as well with the handsome LED units. As for the interior design, what we saw on the concept was pretty wild, and the final version doesn't disappoint either. This is a Lamborghini, after all. The concept’s center column is narrower with far fewer buttons. The information screen is now significantly larger and wider. The steering wheel is similar but different; it’s a modern Lamborghini design.




The 2019 Urus has evolved very nicely from the concept of five years ago. Given the amount of time that passed from concept to production, while the 2019 Lamborghini Urus is heavily influenced by the 2012 concept due to general technological advancements, safety regulations, and a new design director anxious to his leave his mark, the 2019 Urus is its own thing. And it can’t be mistaken for anything other than a Lamborghini.

This abomination is absolutely god awful. And downright hideous.


I dont give a flying fuck if the emblem is the raging bull. This is HORRID.


Even if I was a billionaire I wouldn't buy it.

Here's a taste of the Lamborghini Urus' exhaust note

Folks are either going to love or hate it this thing. There's really no in between when it comes the Lamborghini Urus. After all, we're talking about a Lamborghini SUV. That means it packs everything polarizing about any modern Lamborghini, then upsizes it. There's more in-your-face paint, more room for your jet-set friends, and more Lamborghini to stare at either aghast or with adoration. It also sports that familiar Lamborghini exhaust bark.
A Urus was spotted somewhere in Europe by YouTuber Auto Moto Videos coming off a trailer and then rolling away. Before doing so, the cameraman managed to snag some video of the big beast starting up and driving off. It's clear the exhaust note has...an effect on the person recording the noise.
All of that sound emanates from exhaust tips that connect to a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. It produces 650 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque, and it can propel the Urus from 0-62 mph in just 3.6 seconds. It can also help the Urus tackle just about any type of terrain. Here is goes from 0 to about 2 mph as it ambles off.
We don't have the sort of high-revving, windows-rattling driving footage that we're all eager to find. Before we get that, this clip of a Urus starting up and driving off is going to have to do. You can play it on a loop in the background as you head over to the configurator and create your dream Urus.

I think the concept is much more attractive in every single way. I don't think the production version is horrible, though.

Bright Yellow Lamborghini Urus Spotted In The Austrian Alps




One of the perks of owning a super SUV with an exotic badge and a twin turbo V8 like the Urus is that, on paper, you can get the best of both worlds.

In other words, whereas an Aventador or a Huracan wouldn't be ideal for hauling your things to a ski resort, the Urus will do that in its stride - which was Lamborghini's reasoning behind deciding to build it in the first place.

This particular Urus painted in Giallo Auge was spotted by Tom8501 in Finkenberg, Austria, on the second day of Christmas. Since the Urus isn't expected to reach its first customers until the Spring of 2018, we guess it might have been some Lambo/VW Group exec's ride.

Given the conditions, we reckon that whoever was behind the wheel got the chance to sample Neve (Snow), one of the Urus' six driving modes, which modulates the ESP and other vehicle systems for optimum traction in the snow, and also raises the chassis in order to improve ground clearance.

On dry tarmac, the 650 PS (641 HP) twin-turbo V8 will help the Urus accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.6 seconds and all the way to 305 km/h (190 mph).

Pirelli Developed Six Different Tires For The Lamborghini Urus





At 4,850 pounds or 2,200 kg, the Lamborghini Urus may not weigh as much as some SUVs – but it's still a good 800 pounds or more than 360kg heavier than the Aventador. And with 641 horsepower, keeping all that mass and power under control places very high demands on its tires.

To handle it all, Lamborghini placed its trust in Pirelli, which developed not one or two sets of tires for the super sport utility vehicle, but six.

The Italian manufacturers are offering the Urus with a choice of P Zero, P Zero Corsa, or four versions of the Scorpion – the same line of rubber that shod the LM002 back in the day.

Beyond the standard P Zero, the Corsa tires are designed for track work, should owners wish to lap their hi-po crossovers around the racing circuit. (It is a Lamborghini, after all.) The Scorpion is designed for use on varied surfaces, and is also offered in all-season, winter, and all-terrain versions.

That's a heck of a variety of rubber for one vehicle, and we'd be surprised if many customers ordered theirs with less than two.

Actually The Lamborghini Urus Is Freaking Awesome


We’ve been hearing about the impending arrival of the Lamborghini Urus SUV for months and like many of you, my gut reaction was: “But why?” Now I’ve sat in one at the Detroit Auto Show, I no longer care. All I need to know is how soon I can drive one.
Look, there was no way to receive the concept of a practical crossover-style Lamborghini with anything less than hefty skepticism. Especially when presentations introducing the Urus tented to feature phrases like “everyday use” and “increase sales volumes.”



Isn’t that in the dictionary under “selling out?” Not cool.
But I’ll tell you what is cool: the freaking cockpit of the Lamborghini Urus. Actually, seriously, it might be the most interesting piece of automotive interior design I can remember seeing in some time. At least in a production car.



The shapes are all chunky but sleek at the same time; straight out of Star Trek. The new one, not that tight-shirted Shatner nonsense.
The digital gauge pod is pure sports car with an enormous, evil-looking central tachometer reading like a VU meter on an amplifier. Except there’s also a pitch and roll gauge, like in a truck. What?







Keep your eyes moving to the right though, because the pièce de résistance is right between the driver and passenger: a gloriously complex and intimidating looking series of levers that change gears, manage traction control and do something called “EGO” which can only be awesome.
This design element is the sole most impressive aesthetic marriage of off-road toughness and high-speed performance I’ve ever seen.



The dual-display console ahead of that is not as exceptionally triumphant, but nice looking nevertheless. And all the vents and handles and materials throughout the rest of the cockpit are on point with the unique look of what I would imagine “all-terrain Lamborghini” should be.
The 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 that’s going to move this monster is rated at 650 horsepower, and Lamborghini claims a skilled pilot will be able to make the Urus move from 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds on their way to a top speed of just under 190. But what this “car” can do is far less important than how it makes you feel.

Lamborghini Urus is so exclusive the damn trunk has a roped-off VIP sectionpic.twitter.com/FKJsOu3nlA






Since it’s no secret that the vast majority of these $200,000 people-movers will spent most of their lives strangled by slow moving traffic in places like Beverly Hills and Manhattan, most Urus drivers will be on an adventure in their imagination. And my point is: this vehicle sells excitement at low speed unlike anything else I’ve sat in.
In a world where Porsche, Bentley and soon Rolls-Royce all offer takes on the idea of an SUV, it’s getting harder and harder for something like a “supercrossover” to really stand out and justify its existence.
But if driving the Urus is anywhere near as fun as sitting in it is, I think this insane high-riding exotic might be worth paying attention to after all.

2018 Lamborghini Urus First Drive: Raging Bull Meets SUV

Does a spacious, five-seat SUV still feel like a Lamborghini?




Lamborghini is a small and much-loved Italian supercar brand with ambitions to expand sales beyond its limited 3,500 annual units. The Urus, whose name comes from the ancestral word for modern cattle, is the model designed to capture the car-buying zeitgeist and help make this a reality. It may not be the company’s first performance SUV – that honor goes to the LM002 from 1986, a military project that failed to attract military interest – but it is easily the most accomplished.
First Impressions

A spacious, practical four- or five-seat SUV that has a Lamborghini badge on the bonnet. You weren’t expecting that, were you? Don’t worry, for the Urus still packs plenty of pointy Lambo presence and physicality to easily summon three-figure Instagram likes, as well as encourage anybody to move into the slow lane should one loom large in their mirror.
The cabin is festooned with a familiar mix of frameless doors, hexagon graphics, carbon fiber, Alcantara, and leather but there’s now four cupholders, Isofix points for mounting child car seats, and a cargo area big enough to carry two sets of golf clubs. Strange times…
The center console is dominated by two high-definition touchscreens that offer haptic feedback and control everything from the radio and navigation to the climate control. Car fans may have spotted they’re both on loan from the flagship Audi A8 – remember Lamborghini belongs to the Volkswagen Group – as is some other core switchgear, but the interior remains refreshingly high on drama.
The starter button, for example, lurks behind a scarlet, fighter pilot-style flip-up cover, while a suite of configurable driver modes frame a palm-shaped gear selector. The modes include race-ready Corsa, Sport, Strada, and Neve (snow), plus the optional Terra (off-road) and Sabbia (sand). Ride stiffness, steering, and powertrain can all be individually adjusted, too. Oh, and to help make modern life that little bit easier, there’s a wireless charging pad for your phone located beneath the armrest.
Unfortunately, there is no naturally aspirated V10 or V12 hidden up front. Instead, the Urus uses a 650-horsepower version of the now familiar biturbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that has been used in both the Bentley Continental GT and Audi RS6. In fact, this is the first Lamborghini engine to feature turbochargers, with bosses preferring the high torque at low revs characteristics for its big SUV. Carbon ceramic discs are standard, as are 21-inch wheels (massive 23-inch rims are optional), though you’ll need to pay extra for items like a sunroof, adaptive cruise control, and the four-seat configuration.


How Does It Drive?

All performance SUVs come with the wrong ingredients for going fast: they’re too tall, too big, too heavy. Yet the Urus feels the most sports car-like of any of the SUVs we’ve tested.
Let’s start on track, where the Urus can show off its prodigious performance. Thanks to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and 627 pound-feet of thrust available from a lowly 2,250 rpm, the 0-62-mile-per-hour sprint can be dispatched in 3.6 seconds and the car can carry on to a top speed of 190 mph. The only vehicle that comes close to this level of insanity is the 707-hp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, although that car hits the limiter at 180 mph.
Corsa mode drops the ride height by 0.6 inch while active torque vectoring means that up to 70 percent of total drive can go up front, or 87 percent can go rearwards when conditions permit. You can feel this power exchange seamlessly interplaying when entering and exiting a corner. We also love the monstrous grip on offer from the Pirelli P Zero tires, the easy-to-modulate carbon brakes, and the four-wheel steering, which helps the front end turn in more incisively than any SUV of this size has any right to.
There are also adaptive dampers featuring an electro-mechanical active roll stabilization system. It’s the same trickery we’ve tested in the Bentley Bentayga, although there’s slightly more roll initiated here, offering a greater sensation of the car loading up at speed so you can better judge the grip levels.
It’s incredibly impressive but from the inside, your ears are still telling you you’re driving an RS6; even in the way the V8 clears its throat on upshifts. The engine’s familiarity doesn’t make it any less brilliant, mind; it’s just that no new-era turbocharged unit could ever match Lambo’s typical 10- or 12-cylinder symphonies. That’s the cold truth, people, so why bother comparing at all?
One thing that never changes, however, is the amount of attention this badge receives. Divisive the Urus may be, but it’s certainly a grower: less aftermarket-looking than the Range Rover Sport SVR, less color sensitive than the Bentley Bentayga, better finished than the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, and more special than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.
Back in town, a smooth-shifting gearbox and compliant (if you don’t choose 23-inch wheels) ride provide good low-speed manners, keeping coffee spillages to a minimum and making peacocking around Knightsbridge or the Vegas Strip remarkably easy.
It’s also weirdly spacious. Despite the aggressively raked roofline, there’s plenty of headroom and legroom for two adults in the back and the seats are big improvements on the torture racks you’ll find in other Lamborghini models. Normal-sized humans will find the seat cushions supportive and the bolsters forgiving, even following a carbtastic Italian lunch.
Any other areas to report? Our test car didn’t feature a backup camera, which seems like a silly oversight, and you should be aware that the Urus is from the “let’s not get it too dirty” school of off-roaders. Yes, you can raise the suspension to improve ground clearance, but it doesn’t have manual differential locks or a low-range gearbox. If you want an off-roader, the Mercedes-AMG G63 will be more up your street (and come back to Motor1.com in a few weeks’ time for our first drive on the brash, iconic Merc super-SUV).
Should I Buy One?

If you’re looking for a practical performance SUV that offers unprecedented levels of curb appeal and accessible dynamics, then this is the car for you.
Clearly, this is no ordinary Lamborghini, yet it deserves to wear the badge: it looks mental, it’s the fastest SUV on sale, and it can happily demolish a track as easily as a back road. Of course, there’s less lunacy and more comfort when compared alongside Lamborghinis of yesteryear, but that’s also the case for the Huracan and Aventador. Engineering more usability and refinement into its cars is the modern Lambo way, and the fact the company expects the Urus to double sales volumes only serves to justify this decision.

Lamborghini: Urus Will Be Our Smallest SUV

Chief Technical Officer says he would rather keep the brand’s exclusivity.


Lamborghini’s second SUV is a big hit around the world after its reveal last year. The Urus, which is a huge leap from the boxy LM002, got a number of orders that made the Italian automaker predict assembly of 1,000 units per year – and that’s not a small number for a car that has a $200,000 price tag.

With those figures, probably the next best business move is to capitalize on the market interest, and make a smaller version that would cater to those who are looking for more compact SUVs. Lamborghini begs to differ and would like to continue protecting its exclusivity.

Speaking to Drive at the Urus' international media launch in Rome, Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer, Maurizio Reggiani, said that the Urus super SUV is at the perfect position in the lineup today and it’s at the “bottom” of the company’s parameters.


In other words, a smaller SUV isn’t exactly what the Italian marque is looking for, and might not exactly match with its DNA.

“At the end, it is all about brand positioning, and you can go too far down and dilute the position that we are the pinnacle of the car business,” he said.

While Porsche has already tapped the market for compact luxury soft roaders with the Macan, and Bentley is currently heading towards the same path, it looks like Lamborghini won’t follow suit – at least not anytime soon.
Fortunately, though, the automaker didn’t mention that it won’t make models that are bigger than the Urus. Maybe that’s something to look forward to.

For now, what Reggiani confirmed is that the Urus’ popularity isn’t going to end there. He said that more Urus models will be made in the future, just like how Lamborghini expanded the appeal of the Gallardo and Huracan with multiple variants. A 680-horsepower Porsche-powered plug-in hybrid model is rumored to be a part of that list of Urus derivatives. Who knows what variant could come next.

Lamborghini Urus Plug-In Hybrid Coming Within 18 Months

Likely getting Porsche's electrified 4.0-liter V8.




Lamborghini has big ambitions for its Urus super SUV. The Italian company, already enjoying a very strong interest from customers around the world, will race the vehicle and will soon give it a plug-in hybrid version. How soon? We have the answer here.


Lamborghini’s chief technical officer, Maurizio Reggiani, who spoke to Drive during the international media launch of the Urus in Rome, confirmed a hybrid variant of the SUV is coming in the next 18 months. According to preliminary details, it will borrow its electrified powertrain from Porsche, which means a 4.0-liter V8 with an electric motor will be used to generate a system output of 680 horsepower (507 kilowatts) and 626 pound-feet (850 Newton-meters), or even more.

The Urus will become the first-ever electrified Lamborghini in history and will be followed by the successors of the Huracan and Aventador, which will also receive electric boost. The hybridized powertrain would make the SUV even more powerful than the “regular” Urus with 650 hp (485 kW).
But, in order to be able to invest hundreds of millions into its next generation supercars, the automaker needs fresh money from the Urus SUV. That’s why the brand wants to turn the super SUV into a cash cow, just like Porsche did with its Cayenne about a decade ago. The goal is to produce and sell about 4,000 units of the Urus annually.

“This is our wish, our target and our goal; to increase the foundations of the brand and, due to that, increase the revenue that will ensure the stability of our super sports car in the future,” Reggiani told the publication. “We can sell the Urus because we have the Huracan and Aventador - without this brand value it is difficult to be credible. To be Lamborghini at the moment, it is important that we have this credibility from these models to build the Super Sports SUV in this way.”
