This Is The New Lamborghini Urus SUV

Lamborghini Urus front

The Italian supercar manufacturer says the first of its hybrid vehicles will be its new Sports Utility Vehicle, the URUS, unveiled on Monday and dubbed by the brand the world's first super-SUV.

It features a 650-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 engine and can achieve a top speed of 190 miles per hour, making it the world's fastest SUV, C-Net reported. Eco it's not; but stunning it certainly is.

The Urus is vitally important for Lamborghini, which has invested in a vast (and claimed to be carbon-neutral) new factory in which to build it. Domenicalli claimed that the big SUV will double Lamborghini's sales volume by 2019, which would mean raising sales to around 7,000 vehicles a year.

Chief executive officer Stefano Domenicali has often said the Volkswagen Group-owned house is working to soften its tone from the racer-boy image of the past.

It's not just on-road performance. Suspension is by air chambers at all four corners, which allows for adjustable ride heights, and Lamborghini has included both torque vectoring on the rear wheels, and rear wheel steering too, to try and ensure that the Urus is as agile on race-track as goat-track.

Inside the Urus develops into a luxury sports auto, with three-spoke steering wheel incorporating a vibration damper to enhance comfort and multifunction controls including the Lamborghini Infotainment System (LIS), vehicle set-up, media, telephone and navigation.

While the presentation may have been a bit of a mess, the Urus is anything but.

We just wanted to let you know.
. Up front there are 18-way powered and heated seats. The three seat rear bench seat as standard comes with a movable and folding seat back and ISOFIX fixings. Customers can choose to remove the rear seats and place two sports seats there instead for a more dynamic feel for all passengers.

According to Lamborghini, this makes the Urus the fastest SUV in the world.

With a length of 5.11 meters, the Lamborghini Urus surpasses the SUV coupe from Garching by about 21 centimeters.

So how much will this super SUV cost? Comparing the Urus with the Huracan Performante, the SUV comes very close to matching the sports auto. Max out at 195mph!
