My point about Nebraska wasn't supposed to be a comparison to anywhere in the midwest.

And an ML63, G55, or cayenne turbo is a whole fucking world away from any Acura SUV.

The idea of Lamborghini, known for extreme performance cars, making an SUV may seem off the wall. But don't be too shocked. This actually isn't Lamborghini's first SUV. The LM002, a much chunkier vehicle that looked as if it had been built out of shoeboxes, was available from 1985 to 1992. Only about 300 of those were ever built.
Lamborghini decided it's time to try again. For now, the new, sleeker-looking Urus SUV is just a concept vehicle. But it's clear that Lamborghini fully intends to produce this vehicle or something very much like it. In fact, it could produce as many as 3,000 per year, which would make it the largest-selling Lamborghini model by far.The Urus, just unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show, is a 600 horsepower "crossover" with huge 24-inch wheels and a 600 horsepower engine. Like most of Lamborghini's cars, the Urus has full-time all-wheel-drive with a focus on on-road performance

Overpriced VW / Audi that'll break every 6,000 miles, and or will catch on fire on its test drive.

Lamborghini Urus super SUV officially unveiled in China



Everything You Want To Know About Lambo's Super SUV

The promise is to make it the most powerful series production SUV on the market, but also the least polluting.
Lamborghini has told us repeatedly that it wasn't planning on doing such a thing anytime soon. We expected most likely the front-engine four-door super sedan – playing off the 2008 Estoque showcar and 1968-'78 Espada – to become the raging bull's third model line.

Feast your eyes on the Lamborghini Urus, or "LB736." First off, yes, it is part of an upcoming (i.e. sometime in 2015) Volkwagen Group premium SUV onslaught. In the company of Lamborghini design director Filippo Perini and research and development guru Maurizio Reggiani, we were able to pry into all of the details back in mid-March during a special preview at company headquarters. We've had to hold off scribbling until today because the official debut for the edgy 4x4 happens right about now at the Beijing Motor Show. China is foreseen as a good market for the supersonic SUV, but the United States remains Job One.

In comparison to the clumsy Bentley EXP 9 F concept seen at the recent Geneva Motor Show, the Urus hits us almost gleefully by comparison; it's right on the money with Lambo's current design language. Lamborghini's Perini understands that this is a polarizing proposition: "When Lamborghini creates a whole new model line, it's automatically risky since it doesn't happen so often."

And we were nervous about it, too, imagining a four-seater setup that would need to ride way too high, sort of like the first generation Porsche Cayenne or that Bentley. But when the veil came off and the hard lights hit it, we were pleased.



The Urus will singlehandedly triple total annual production.
Lamborghini president and CEO Stephan Winkelmann started the proceedings by saying that though the two-door supersport sector is still going well, due to so many new entries coming out nowadays and new buyer preferences, the forecast is for a steady small decline year-on-year in demand for these cars. Specifically, two-door sports cars with over 400 horsepower and costing over $100,000.

So they're going a different way, following an upward trending graph: a 4x4 super SUV with just over 600 horsepower, stretching over eight inches longer than an Aventador and about four inches longer than a BMW X6 M, and certainly costing somewhere within reach of $200,000+ by the time you get it home. With projected volume in a full year of 3,000 Uruses (or "Uri"?), Lamborghini, its immediate warden Audi, and mothership Volkswagen Group, are all no doubt drooling over the potential profits the Urus represents. It will singlehandedly triple total annual production.
There is no chance of a monster diesel.
Current press information released on the Urus is deliberately vague as the launch is not set until 2015, so there is still time to decide the powertrain. Given that the promise is to make it the most powerful series production SUV on the market but also the least polluting so far as carbon dioxide emissions are concerned, either a V10 or V12 engine would seem a heck of a challenge. By the time of production start, many European high-performance cars will need to be able to emit no more than 200 grams of CO2 per kilometer when running most efficiently. And looking at the sharply sloping front end, we're unsure whether there would be enough room to hold either ten or twelve cylinders.


50 percent of customer deliveries are projected for the United States.
Talk is in the air about a new forced-air (bi-turbo or supercharged) V8 engineered within the vast workshops of the VW Group. Engineer Reggiani was rather sly about this suggestion when we brought it up, but with these packaging and emissions goals it definitely would make sense to at least seriously consider the idea. In fact, Reggiani and Winkelmann attest that with this new model the company will take more advantage of "group synergies". Does this mean some variation of hybrid drive or maybe even a take on Audi's e-tron thinking? And, no, there is no chance of a monster diesel.
Lamborghini suggests the Urus could end up running the Dakar rally as well.
A key ingredient for any Lamborghini in optimizing matters for speed and handling, as well as various efficiencies, is managing weight and rigidity through composite materials formed in-house. The Urus will certainly be loaded with this stiff lightness and Lamborghini claims it saves almost 250 pounds versus metal and adds tremendous bending stiffness. The chassis, body, and for the first time in the segment the interior as well, will be optimized for lightness. As the concept interior unveiled in Beijing shows, every element seems to be floating in place. How much of this spectacle it can keep down the road is to be decided.

We know from conversations at Lamborghini that the steering will be electro-mechanical, the range of travel adjustment on the suspension will be 3.5 inches, and by the time of production weight distribution will be as close to 50:50 fore:aft as possible. The mondo wheelset right now for showing purposes is a custom set of 24-inchers in an aero design. Currently, the Urus wears nasty-bad Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires measuring a big 305/35 ZR24 (112W). We are assuming the wheel-tire setup will be able to get more supple for passenger comfort by 2015.

Four passengers are said to have plenty of room inside, even for heads in back.
And by the time of customer deliveries – 50 percent of which is projected for the U.S. – those fancy side-view cameras we see on so many concept cars should be a homologation reality at last, according to Perini. The caveat is that the cameras and their screens on the dash need to remain on at all times, even when the Urus is switched off.

So, tell us what you think. As added fodder, Lamborghini hints that the Urus could possibly end up running the Dakar rally as well. We'd love to see that concept at a show.
"Urus" is a Spanish breed of bull that sits somewhere between fighting size and hauling size.
Chief foreseen competitors for the Urus, according to Lamborghini bosses, are the BMW X6 M, Land Rover Range Rover Sport, and Porsche Cayenne range. In keeping with Lambo's typically evil proportions, even the Urus hunkers way down to a minimum height of 65.4 inches with a width of 78.4 inches. The 196.5-inch current length is matched to a wheelbase measuring 114.0 inches that is spot on with the latest Cayenne. Four passengers are said to have plenty of room inside, however, even for heads in back.

So, let the mispronunciation games begin! While the Italians will say "Oo-rooss", noone else will unless they are trained to do so. "Urus" is, in keeping with the Lamborghini penchant for glorified cattle, a Spanish breed of bull that sits somewhere between fighting size and hauling size. They are known for their broad shoulders and better than average height.

Lamborghini has teased us already with possible chances at driving a rolling prototype sometime this year just to get a sense of the Urus spatially on the road. We are prepared to be bulled over.

Lamborghini Urus stomps onto the stage in China [w/video]








The Lamborghini Urus super-SUV is, arguably, the most significant debut of the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Maybe not in terms of sales volume, but at it's a completely new direction for the modern Lamborghini brand (nevermind the LM002 "Rambo Lambo" from the '80s), and moreover, it shows the first glimpse into the new premium SUV architecture that will gradually make its way through the entire Volkswagen Group portfolio.

We've already divulged the nitty gritty details about the Urus, including the meaning behind its questionable name (it's a Spanish bull – go figure), but now it's time to take a look at the bruiser live on the stage in Beijing. Before its debut, we were skeptical about how a high-riding Lamborghini SUV would look, but if we're honest, we like what we see. It's absolutely in-tune with the rest of Lambo's design language, and it's not nearly as enormous as you might think. We just wonder how much space there is in the back seat and how much utility is offered by the cargo bay.

Click above to peruse through a high-resolution gallery of images live from Beijing, and scroll down to watch a video of the SUV's unveiling live from the Chinese expo.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Lamborghini Urus –
The SUV super athlete


• Lamborghini presents SUV concept vehicle with extreme performance
• Unique, powerfully dynamic design, interior with carbon fiber innovations such as Forged Composite
• Breathtaking dynamics thanks to 440 kW / 600 hp and lightweight design technology; best in class CO2 figure among the competition


At the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, Automobili Lamborghini presents the ultimate super athlete in the SUV segment. With the Urus concept car, Lamborghini is completely redefining dynamics and design in this category. The Urus combines unique design, a fascinating interior and outstanding performance with versatility and everyday usability.

Output of around 440 kW / 600 hp and Lamborghini's excellent know-how in the field of lightweight design technologies guarantee breathtaking dynamics. At the same time, the Urus will offer the lowest CO2 figure of all comparable vehicles. As an SUV concept with four generous seats, a versatile luggage compartment, variable ground clearance and, of course, permanent all-wheel drive, the Urus delivers unique driving fun with virtually no limitations. The interior, too, matches the standards of this super athlete with innovative materials featuring carbon fiber technology like the patented Forged Composite.

The luxury SUV segment is successful worldwide and promises continued strong growth – a luxurious and powerful SUV is the most emotional way to drive a four-door vehicle equipped to meet all the demands of everyday mobility and yet enjoy refined driving fun. The Urus means that a Lamborghini can now be used by a household as its primary car. This expands the brand's customer base enormously - appealing to families and to the drivers of Lamborghini super sports cars who have thus far driven SUV models from other brands. Target markets are primarily the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, the Middle East and China. The annual production volume could conceivably be around 3,000 vehicles.

"The Urus is a very concrete idea for the future of Lamborghini – as a third model line and as the perfect complement to our super sports cars," says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "SUVs stand for freedom and emotion. SUVs make up one of the most successful market segments worldwide. The Urus is the most extreme interpretation of the SUV idea; it is the Lamborghini of the SUVs."

Heritage and Name

Permanent all-wheel drive is part of the Lamborghini DNA; but the brand from Sant'Agata Bolognese is also no stranger to the SUV segment - Lamborghini founded the super-luxury SUV segment with the legendary LM002. When it was unveiled in 1985, the LM002 was an absolutely revolutionary vehicle. An automobile suitable for off-road driving with a twelve-cylinder engine and 450 hp, a top speed of more than 210 km/h, a luxurious interior and, above all, an absolutely stunning appearance – it was utterly unthinkable at the time. The Lamborghini LM002 remained in production until 1992. And, although barely more than 300 units were ever built, the LM002 has secured its place in automotive history.

With the Urus, Lamborghini designers and engineers have created a new icon in automotive history – that much is certain. As has long been the tradition at Lamborghini, its name is derived once more from the world of bulls – the Urus, also known as Aurochs, is one of the large, wild ancestors of domestic cattle. Urus bulls could measure up to 1.8 meters at the shoulder. The Spanish fighting bull, as bred for the past 500 years, is still very close to the Urus in its appearance.

Concept and Technology

The Urus is the Lamborghini among SUVs. Its concept places design, performance and driving fun firmly and uncompromisingly front and center and redefines the benchmark for the competition. Yet it offers plenty of space for four people and a generous amount of luggage or shopping. The Urus is the Lamborghini for everyday use, for the family, for leisure pursuits with friends.

Most importantly, however, it is a true Lamborghini. The Urus has a unique, utterly unmistakable appearance. It looks powerful, but not bulky. It is muscular and highly athletic, but also elegant. At a length of 4.99 meters, it fits perfectly into the sporty SUV class. At a height of just 1.66 meters, however, it is considerably lower than all its competitors. Together with its width of 1.99 meters, the Lamborghini Urus boasts the perfect proportions for the super athlete in the segment.

The key to its performance is primarily the drive – the heart of every Lamborghini. The target has been set – expect around 440 kW / 600 hp. Permanent all-wheel drive with traction control is, of course, a given.

One target is clearly defined – the Lamborghini Urus will beat all comparable competitors when it comes to CO2 emissions. One important prerequisite for this is low weight. The Urus will be considerably lighter than its competitors, sticking firmly to the Lamborghini lightweight design philosophy. The steps to achieve this include an intelligent material mix for the structure and bodyshell and, for the first time, systematic lightweight design in the interior, too. The consistent application of innovative carbon fiber technologies is a given - Automobili Lamborghini possesses unique know-how in this particular field.

Lightweight design is the decisive prerequisite not only for moderate fuel consumption, but also for dynamics and handling. The Urus will set new benchmarks here, too. A low center of gravity and a highly variable bodyshell height are among the solutions. The Lamborghini SUV is also notable for its innovative, adaptive aerodynamics. In combination with the variable bodyshell height, the height-adjustable front spoiler facilitates a good approach angle and excellent obstacle clearance. At its lowest setting, however, it aids stability at high speeds. The form is, of course, aerodynamically refined. At the upper edge of the rear windshield is a deflector that diverts the airflow along the rear windshield and onto the adjustable spoiler. In combination with the likewise adaptive rear spoiler, the aerodynamic balance of the Lamborghini Urus can even be adjusted to suit the prevailing driving conditions.

Design

Lamborghini design is unique. Every Lamborghini is an artwork of avant-garde design, a technical sculpture in rapid movement. Every Lamborghini is pure and minimalist - exhibiting a clear focus on what matters. The Lamborghini Urus concept car adheres to this logic just as firmly as the Aventador sports car. Extremely tight, razor-sharp lines define a precision that is at the very forefront of automotive design. And the clean, taut, finely executed surfaces show the exceptional degree of competence and experience possessed by Lamborghini in design, construction and bodyshell manufacturing. The result is a tremendously precise design language with a strong technical appeal that is amazingly spirited and light in its expression.

It starts at the front, which already displays the clear family resemblance. The strong three-dimensionality with sharp lines, a clear arrow form, large air intakes left and right, the Y shape in the headlamps, the aerodynamically refined function of the elements and the lines that run from the hood over the roof to the rear of the vehicle – these characteristics of the Lamborghini design language are all evident in the Urus.

And yet every single detail has been reinterpreted – for example, the headlamps now take on a horizontal, heptagonal form and feature full LED technology consisting of two arrays each with three high-performance LEDs. LED light guides lend the daytime running lights their characteristic Y-shape, while the LED fog lamps are positioned beneath the huge air intakes. Between them is the adaptive front spoiler. Characteristic for the side view of the Urus is the narrow window surface that tapers sharply toward the rear. Together with the highly dynamic roofline and the extremely muscular rear wheel arch, they create a taut and powerfully sporty look. The marked indent formed behind the front wheel arch by the air intake breaks the side view to give it a surprising degree of lightness.

Substantial wheels are part of any Lamborghini, especially if it redefines dynamics in the SUV segment – the all-new 24-inch wheels sport a double-spoke design and are forged from matte-finish aluminum. Five carbon fiber winglets optimize ventilation. The Urus is painted in a rich, lightly shimmering red that offers the ideal contrast for the many bodyshell parts made from carbon fiber reinforced polymer. A large proportion of the front spoiler, the complete side sills and the mighty rear diffuser all clearly display their carbon fiber origins. There are no conventional exterior mirrors, instead small and aerodynamically optimized cameras monitor traffic conditions behind the vehicle. These images are displayed via two TFT screens placed in ergonomically perfect positions on the left and right of the cockpit.

The rear end of the Urus is astonishingly round for a Lamborghini; it looks powerful, but in no way bulky. The narrow rear lights featuring the Y signature are connected by a black strip that adds emphasis to the car's breadth. The attention paid by Lamborghini designers to detail is evident everywhere, even on the exhaust system. The four hexagonal end pipes are carefully fitted into chrome surrounds.

Interior

The Lamborghini Urus completely redefines the term sporty within the SUV segment, yet without restricting its everyday usability. This is particularly evident in its interior – the driver and up to three passengers feel like they are wearing a perfectly made-to-measure suit – carefully fitted, but comfortable. Yet there can be no doubt that what we are dealing with here is the ultimate sports car among SUVs. Virtually the complete interior is – in keeping with the Lamborghini lightweight design strategy – finished in carbon fiber reinforced polymer.

Automobili Lamborghini possesses a unique competence in the use of carbon materials, and exhibits this innovative technology in the Urus concept car. The center tunnel is particularly notable – an open, skeletal carbon fiber structure made from Forged Composite®. It carries through the entire interior and is only partially clad in leather-upholstered cushioning. Single cushions also clad the four bucket seats. The seating position is lower and flatter than in any other vehicle in the segment. Also all four bucket seats are made from Forged Composite®.

The Lamborghini Urus concept car also features an extremely minimized operating philosophy. Behind the steering wheel are only the shift paddles for the dual-clutch transmission. All other functions such as indicators, lights and windshield wipers are incorporated into either the multifunction steering wheel or the center console. The driver is delivered information via a freely programmable TFT screen behind the steering wheel. Secondary functions like navigation, entertainment and climate control are operated via a touchscreen on the center tunnel. A further touchscreen is available for rear seat passengers.

Chinese patent filing may mean Lamborghini Urus closer to production








The Urus SUV still hasn't received the official green light for production, but that hasn't stopped Lamborghini from protecting its performance crossover in the land of stolen vehicle designs. These patent drawings submitted in China show what appear to be the Urus in the same concept form that we first saw last year at the Beijing Motor Show.

Last we heard, the Volkswagen Group had put development of the Urus on hold even though, more recently, the Bentley EXP 9 F (aka, the Falcon) has reportedly been given the nod. Although the existence of these patent images don't necessarily mean the Urus is going into production, they are at least another excuse to debate the SUV's stealth-bomber-style lines.

Lamborghini Urus SUV to be launched in 2017







Lamborghini is planning to launch the final production version of the Urus SUV in 2017, and the model will ride on the new generation of the MLB platform.

With Bentley not sure on producing its SUV just yet and Jaguar Land Rover planning to move the Range Rover upmarket in order to compete with it, another luxury SUV is ending up in our news, this time signed by Lamborghini. According to the Audi’s boss, Rupert Stadler, the final production version of the Lamborghini Urus will be seen in late 2016 and it should become available to its future customers in 2017.
“Lamborghini has to do it. Because of the need to dovetail into production cycles, we should see the Urus in 2017”, as Stadler told Autocar.
If it makes it into production, the Lamborghini Urus SUV will ride on the same platform as the Bentley EXP 9 F production, the Volkswagen Touareg, the Porsche Cayenne or the Audi Q7, which will be made out of steel and it will help the crossover to weigh around 4,400 lbs (1,996). Power to the model will be provided by a 4.0 liter V8 and by an engine borrowed from Bentley, the 6.0 liter W12.

Lamborghini committed to 2017 Urus launch

Lamborghini Urus concept SUV live in Beijing 23.04.2012 [25th Apr, 2012]

Rumored to use next-gen Audi Q7 platform

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann says "the expectation" is to launch the Urus in 2017.
Back in May last year Lamborghini confirmed a production version of the Urus concept for a 2017 market release and now the firm's CEO Stephan Winkelmann has reiterated plans for an SUV from Sant'Agata to come out three years from now since he expects "the luxury SUV market is poised to continue to grow."
The spiritual successor of the LM002 is rumored to ride on the same MLB platform as the next-gen Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg as well as the Bentley SUV. Details about what will power the Urus are not available at this moment but previous reports indicated a twin-turbo V8 along with a plug-in hybrid version. Winkelmann already said about a year ago the production version of the Urus will be offered with two powertrain choices but refused to elaborate on this subject.
On a side note, Winkelmann told Automotive News Europe deliveries of the Gallardo-replacing Huracan will commence in the second half of the year.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has hinted that a turbocharged V8 may make its way under the hood of the company's upcoming Urus SUV.

"An SUV could be a turbo engine for the first time for us," the chief executive told Auto Express.

The move would be part of a broader strategy to help the company meet international emissions regulations, while also reducing platform costs through a shared powertrain.

The Urus is expected to be built upon Volkswagen Group's MLB platform, which will also underpin the next-generation Audi Q7 and the Porsche Cayenne. A turbocharged V8 is therefore viewed as a more natural fit, rather than opting for a V10.

Lamborghini chief designer Felipo Perini cautioned that particular design elements are "changing all the time," though the current plan is said to be very close to the concept.

"The Urus is amazing, the way it moves," he said. "Our goal is to preserve this with the production car."

The company is currently aiming to begin rolling the production version off assembly lines sometime in 2017.

U R’nt Serious?! Lamborghini Finally Officially Confirms Urus SUV





With the preponderance of super-expensive automobiles populating the automotive landscape, you’d think it’d be a no-brainer to shuffle a hot-looking, $300K-plus Italian super-SUV from oddly named concept car to production reality. Apparently not, however, with Lamborghini’s proposed SUV only now being officially confirmed for production after an initial confirmation soon after the Urus concept car debuted in 2012 turned out to be premature. Lamborghini has also stated that the new moneymaker will join the Huracán and Aventador in the lineup by 2018, and that it will be built in Italy. The path to production for Lamborghini’s proposed SUV has been littered with hurdles, all of them, bizarrely, seemingly outside of the Italian supercar maker’s complete control. After first green-lighting the crossover for production soon after showing it in concept form as the Urus, Lamborghini reneged—but only because it said fellow VW Group member and Lamborghini parent Audi had yet to sign off on the project. Then the SUV was seemingly back on track recently when Lamborghini again pulled out the wet blanket, this time blaming the Urus’s holdup on the Italian government.
Lamborghini’s latest announcement is legit, however, given that it includes discussion of specific timing, investment pledges, and even a square-footage increase of its Bolognese factory from 80,000 to 150,000. There’s little question that an SUV would significantly boost Lamborghini’s production numbers and operating profit, and an SUV isn’t incongruent with the brand’s image: Lambo already did the SUV thing when it sold the absurdly macho LM002 in the ’80s and ’90s. Now, about the “Urus” name . . .

2018 Lamborghini Urus SUV spotted testing – picture gallery


Lamborghini's new all-wheel-drive SUV will arrive in 2018 and be available with a hybrid powertrain and a turbocharged V8













The Lamborghini Urus SUV has been caught testing for the first time in spy pictures that show a test mule in Europe.
Despite the heavy disguise, it’s clear the production version of the all-wheel-drive turbocharged SUV will stick closely to the rakish styling of the concept unveiled at the 2012 Beijing motor show.

Although the spy pictures show a typically sharp and angular Lamborghini design on the outside, Autocar understands the interior will be significantly more comfort-orientated and conventional.
Lamborghini’s first SUV since the 1986 LM002 will be built on the same platform that underpins the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga and 2018 Porsche Cayenne. It will feature the brand’s first plug-in hybrid powertrain, which will be offered alongside a twin-turbo 4.0-litre petrol V8 engine in the line-up.

That engine will be the company’s first turbocharged V8. Lamborghini bosses have eschewed the naturally aspirated V10 and V12 units from the Huracán and Aventador for their new SUV in pursuit of better fuel economy and an extensive power spread, with low-end torque and top-end power.
Lamborghini has already confirmed to Autocar that it won’t offer rear-wheel-drive variants of the Urus. That's in line with its strategy for the all-wheel-drive Aventador, but not the Huracán, which is available in four-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive guises.
The SUV will be a luxury rival to the likes of the Bentayga, Range Rover SVAutobiography and forthcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

Autocar understands that special-edition models of the Urus are under consideration. These include a hardcore Superveloce variant and a more focused luxury model.
Production of the Urus may begin around April this year and Autocar understands pricing is likely to be similar to that of the Huracán, which starts around £180k.
Lamborghini has been experiencing strong growth through sales of the Huracán and Aventador. The company has been recruiting extra staff in preparation for production of the Urus and is aiming to double its worldwide sales by 2019. Its production site in Sant’Agata Bolognese is set to double in size to cater for the demand.
Huge delays since the concept car’s first outing in Beijing five years ago led to speculation that the Urus could be axed, but instead the Asterion hybrid sports car was put on hold in favour of the SUV and these spy pictures show development is on track.

Lamborghini Urus to debut with 650-horsepower V-8






Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali has revealed more details about his company’s upcoming SUV, the Urus, ahead of the vehicle’s debut later this year.
Speaking with Automotive News (subscription required), Domenicali revealed that the Urus will debut with a 650-horsepower rating, slotting it in between the Huracán and Aventador supercars, at least in terms of power.
That power will come from the Volkswagen Group’s latest 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 which will have specific tuning to ensure it sounds like a proper Lambo unit.
The Urus will reach the United States in the third quarter of 2018, suggesting we’ll see it arrive as a 2019 model. About a year after launch, the Urus will receive a plug-in hybrid option.
Stefano Domenicali

Domenicali revealed to Automotive News that the plug-in hybrid powertrain will use the twin-turbo V-8 as its internal combustion component. The powertrain is likely a version of the 680-hp setup found in Porsche’s Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, meaning the V-8 will be paired with an electric motor integrated with the transmission.
The Urus has been developed around a lightened version of the VW Group’s SUV-spec MLB platform found in vehicles like the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. Production will be handled at Lamborghini’s plant in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.
Pricing for the Urus is expected to start below $200,000, and the vehicle is expected to be Lamborghini’s most popular model.
Lamborghini is predicting sales of around 3,500 units annually. That’s roughly the marque’s 2016 total for its supercars.

Lamborghini Urus SUV to debut December 4

Whether you’re a fan or not, you had better get used to seeing a Lamborghini SUV in your neck of the woods as the vehicle is coming soon.
We’re talking about the Lamborghini Urus, which the Italian marque will unveil on December 4 at its headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese.
Lamborghini describes the Urus as being in a class of its own. The vehicle will combine exclusivity, versatility, and performance approaching that of one of the marque's supercars.
The platform will be a familiar one, though. The Urus will use the Volkswagen Group’s SUV platform found in the Bentley Bentayga as well as the latest versions of the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne. To extract the performance one would expect of a Lamborghini, engineers are expected to use lighter carbon fiber elements in place of more conventional materials. One of these elements is thought to be a T-shaped structure extending from the central tunnel to the rear suspension mounting points.

The Urus was first shown as a concept at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show and was almost immediately being suggested for production. However, an economic crisis in Europe at the time had Lamborghini bosses worried and the final decision was put on hold. The green light was finally given in 2015.
Masked prototypes testing in the wild reveal a design that’s very similar to the striking concept. Of course there have been some changes, the most significant being a raised roofline to improve interior space.
Under the hood will be a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 tuned to deliver 650 horsepower. About a year after launch, the Urus will receive a plug-in hybrid option pairing the twin-turbo V-8 with an electric motor. A similar setup features in the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, where it delivers 680 hp.
Pricing for the Urus is expected to start below $200,000, making it the entry-level model for Lamborghini. No surprise then that Lamborghini is expecting around 3,500 annual sales, equal to the combined sales of its Huracán and Aventador last year.

I don't love it and I don't hate it...but the back looks just like an EVOQUE...which is not bad, but for the price difference - fuck.
The front looks ok...but I think I would rather have the new SRT for probably less than half the price.
