ACURA Sport Car | Lamborghini Is Building a 600HP SUV

THE WEEPING, WAILING and gnashing of teeth yous remove heed is the collective agony of the supercar cognoscenti freaking out almost this: the Lamborghini Urus. It’s an all-new SUV from Sant’Agata, together with despite Lambo’s claims that it’s strictly a concept, await to consider the Urus on roads within the adjacent few years.
While the thought of a Lamborghini crossover mightiness move surprising to anyone who wasn’t poring over auto mags inward their misspent youth, this isn’t Lamborghini’s outset ‘ute. That illustrious distinction goes to the LM002 (pictured below). Disaffectionately referred to every bit the “Rambo Lambo” for its propensity to seem inward ’80s-era B-class activity flicks, Lamborghini alone managed to offload around 300 LM002s to coke-addled moving painting execs together with oil-rich Middle Easterners earlier the finicky, unreliable off-roader was killed inward 1992.

 Let’s move clear: The Urus is non an LM002 redux.
Instead, it’s a play yesteryear Lamborghini to get Aventadorand Gallardo owners to merchandise inward their Porsche Cayenne Turbos, BMW X5 Ms together with Mercedes-Benz G63s for something but every bit ostentatious together with fifty-fifty to a greater extent than powerful. In other words, Lambo wants to proceed these people inward the household unit of measurement yesteryear appealing to families.
To practise that, Lamborghini fitted the Urus alongside 4 seats, a right-sized luggage compartment together with a touchscreen amusement organisation to proceed the kiddies inward dorsum at bay. And partnered alongside a variable pinnacle suspension setup for boosted soil clearance together with command-view seating, along alongside Lamborghini’s permanent all-wheel campaign system, the automaker claims the Urus tin “be used yesteryear a household every bit its top dog auto … to consider all the demands of everyday mobility.”
But beingness a Lamborghini requires the injection of a for certain amount of insanity, together with that starts alongside ability — 600 horsepower, to move precise.
Lamborghini isn’t divulging precisely what powerplant lives underneath that pointed, angular hood, but considering the automaker claims that the Urus volition boast the lowest CO2emissions of whatsoever vehicle inward its class, nosotros suspect that some agency of turbocharging volition move applied to Lambo’s V10. Getting that ability to all 4 wheels volition move a dual-clutch gearbox, controlled yesteryear a couplet of paddle shifters on the multifunction steering cycle which nixes the traditional plow signal together with windshield stalks for an array of buttons.
The other commutation human face of keeping emissions together with fuel economic scheme downward is through the exercise of lightweight components. The carbon fiber together with aluminum handling of yesteryear Lamborghinis has made its agency inside, alongside seats, dashboard components together with assorted structural bits created through a novel procedure dubbed “Forged Composite” together with originally seen on the Sesto Elemento concept.

Aerodynamics is some other influencer inward the Urus’ design, ranging from an array of active aerodynamics that shift topographic point depending on speed together with load, to Lamborghini’s conclusion to describe the side mirrors together with supersede them alongside ii pocket-sized cameras feeding alive images to TFT displays mounted on either side of the cockpit.
It doesn’t come upward every bit a surprise that Lamborghini chose the Beijing Motor Show for the debut. The automaker estimates that it could sell around 3,000 Urus SUVs each year, primarily inward the U.S.A. together with U.K., along alongside the conspicuous consumption capitals of the world: Russia, the Middle East together with China.
If given the dark-green light, the Urus should teach on sale yesteryear the destination of 2014, together with all indications betoken to Stephan Winkelmann, President together with CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, together with the execs at Lambo’s Volkswagen parents doing but that based on how the SUV is received.
So consider the Urus is a provide to Lamborghini’s roots, which started humbly plenty when Ferruccio Lamborghini got into the mobility concern alongside his outset product: a tractor.
