Lamborghini unveils 'super SUV' - yours for £165000
Dec 05 2017 by Joanne Wise
Lamborghini unveiled its new Urus SUV at its Italy headquarters on Monday. Urus was scheduled to become Lamborghini's first SUV and we are happy to announce that its finally available for purchase.
Based on the same platform as the Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne, the Lamborghini is powered by a twin turbo 4.0 litre V8, that develops 478kW and 850Nm.
The Lamborghini Urus has a top speed of 189.5 miles per hour (305 km/h) and a 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) time of just 3.6 seconds. The standard Carbon Ceramic Brakes are no less impressive: the Urus decelerates from 100-0 km/h in 33.7 metres. It is the Italian automaker's first SUV since the LM002 was discontinued in 1993. The luxury auto maker has said that the first deliveries of their new Urus will start in the spring of next year. There is also a high end infotainment system and a Bang & Olfusen sound system. Users may find rear space lacking; the low roofline styling of the small "sport coupe" BMW X6 is apparent here as well, and rear-seat room in the X6 comes at a premium. Company executives unveiled a concept of the rig five years ago, but this is the first time they have shown a real-life production version to the public.
Indeed, the addition of the Urus to Lamborghini's otherwise extreme fleet of track-ready supercars-most outfitted with dihedral doors or outré spoilers that scream for attention-is meant to expand its appeal to both families and female buyers.

Starbucks offers another convenient way for customers to order ahead and enjoy their favorite handcrafted beverage or food item. There will be limits to the functionality of the new marketplace feature since it's created to be used while driving.
The Urus comes with all the driving tech you'd expect in a luxury SUV as well, including level 2 autonomy and an long list of safety features.
"We are entering new markets that will be very important for the future of our growth".
Lamborghini's built something that's basically a posh take on the Nissan Qashqai or any or the other billion chunky "off road" SUVs out there waiting where cars aren't supposed to wait, in the form of the Lamborghini Urus. These are impressive performance figures for a large SUV.
Following Lamborghini's tradition of bovine-related names, the Urus is named after a wild ancestor of domestic cattle.
