Russians snatch up all Lamborghini Urus cars even before their official market release
It's been 5 years since the Lamborghini showcased the Urus in its concept form.
Lamborghini unveiled the company's new SUV, the Urus, at its headquarters in Sant'Agata, Italy, on Monday. The 2019 Urus shares the platform of Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 but, with a major difference in terms of styling and performance.
The Lamborghini plant has been redesigned and its capacity doubled with the addition of 500 new staff to meet anticipated demand from one of the auto industry's most dynamic sectors. The sharp creases, deep cuts, and swooping roofline altogether reflects that the SUV is a mean machine. These are impressive performance figures for a large SUV.
Fitted with a turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine - a company-first - the Urus has 641bhp at its disposal, with that power supplemented by 850Nm of torque. It is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Hitting the 100 kmph mark from naught takes just 3.6 seconds while the Urus is capable of reaching a top speed of 305 kmph.
Lamborghini has unveiled what it calls the world's first "super sports utility vehicle", the Urus. It also has rear-wheel steering to help with cornering - a system that was first used on the Aventador S supercar. There is also a high end infotainment system and a Bang & Olfusen sound system.
Comfort features include 12-way adjustable heated driver and front passenger seats as standard, with an option of an 18-way adjustable seat.
Meanwhile, the cabin offers seating for up to five occupants (a two-seat rear layout is optional) and is replete with high-quality materials including the finest leather, Alcantara, aluminum, carbon fibre and wood. As for cargo, the rear bench seat can be lowered to substantially extend the trunk space from 616 to 1,596 litres.
Just like other Lamborghini's the Urus name is also derived from bulls, which is an extinct wild ancestor of domestic cattle.
Prices for the Urus start at £131,500, with the first customers due to receive their vehicle by spring 2018.
The SUV "allows you to travel on any terrain: on road, off road, on ice but also on sand dunes", said Lamborghini research and development director Maurizio Reggiani, suggesting it will be the fastest SUV on the market.
