Lamborghini unveils its highly anticipated SUV, the Urus

Lamborghini has finally debuted its first-ever SUV, the third model to its current line-up of cars.

Supercar lovers will now be able to get their families in on the power of the Raging Bulls with the new Lamborghini Urus.

Lamborghini has finally debuted the Super SUV in Sant’Agata Bolognese today, after teasing the automotive industry with its concept since 2012. The third model in the Italian auto marque’s line-up promises the same power, driving dynamics and design reminiscent in its current and previous cars.

Equipped with a front-mounted, four-litre petrol V8 twin-turbo engine, the Urus is empowered to deliver a maximum of 650bhp with 850Nm of torque. And as expected, the SUV does not downplay performance. Acceleration time from zero to 100km/h is promised at 3.6 seconds, while hitting 200km/h takes just 12.8 seconds. To further prove that it is the fastest SUV in the market, the Urus delivers a top speed of 305km/h.

Says Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini: “The Lamborghini Urus is a visionary approach based on the infusion of Lamborghini DNA into the most versatile vehicle, the SUV.”

“The Urus fits perfectly within the Lamborghini family as a high-performance car. It is the culmination of intensive development and passionate skill to create a new breed of bull: A Super SUV that transcends the boundaries of expectations and opens the door to new possibilities for both our brand and our customers.”

Fans of the brand, as well as car lovers, in Asia-Pacific will soon be able to feast their eyes on the car. Come next week, the car will be making its regional premiere, displaying its “unprecedented SUV performance, luxury and versatility, with the distinctive dynamic design DNA of a Lamborghini super sports car”.

As for customers, the Italian automaker has revealed that the Urus will be delivered to its first customers in Spring 2018.

So keep your eyes peeled. Because this new breed of the Raging Bull will be hitting our streets anytime now.
