  • The 2018 Lamborghini Urus production-spec car features an aggressive front with large air scoops

"We design experiences: Urus is one of them". The 2019 Urus shares the platform of Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 but, with a major difference in terms of styling and performance.

If you own a successful small business, and want an ultimate sports vehicle you can take to meetings...then this could be it. Now, the Italian vehicle maker finally unveils it. the Urus SUV. The sharp creases, deep cuts, and swooping roofline altogether reflects that the SUV is a mean machine.

It's been more than ten years since Lamborghini unveiled the first Urus concept pictures.

It accelerates from 0-100 km an hour in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km an hour in 12.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 305 km/h.

Lamborghini described the Urus as "everything you'd expect from Lamborghini", noting that the V8 twin-turbo engine served to strike "the ideal balance between raw power and responsive agility".




What makes the Urus one of its kind is its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that has the potential to pump out a maximum power output of 650 hp at 6500 rpm and peak torque of 850 Nm between 2240 - 4500 rpm. These are impressive performance figures for a large SUV. The dashboard has a Y-design which is oriented towards the driver.

Other highlights include an eight-speed automatic gearbox, a dynamic 4WD system that can send up to 70% of the engine's torque to the front or 87% to the rear, active torque vectoring for left-right distribution, multiple drive modes (Street, Off-Road, Snow, Sand, Sport, Race), adaptive air suspension, rear-wheel steering and variable exhaust. There is also a high end infotainment system and a Bang & Olfusen sound system. The rear has either a three-seat bench with Isofix points or an optional two-seat configuration.

Following Lamborghini's tradition of bovine-related names, the Urus is named after a wild ancestor of domestic cattle.

Prices for the Urus, excluding taxes, start at £131,500, with the first customers due to receive their vehicles by spring 2018.
