Lamborghini’s disputable reentry into the SUV market is quick moving toward its dispatch date, yet this is our nearest look yet; our spy snappers have gotten a model test donkey setting hot laps at the Nurburgring circuit.
In spite of the run of the mill designed camouflage, we can see that the Urus will hold a significant part of the sharp, rakish outline dialect of the first 2012 Beijing show idea and Lambo’s present supercars. With a low, roadster like roofline and steeply rising shoulders it’s probably not going to be as viable as most SUVs, yet it absolutely looks particular.
Not long ago supervisors revealed to Auto Express that the Urus will cost from around £180,000 when it goes discounted before the year’s over, and it’s set to deliver more than 600bhp and 800Nm of torque from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8.
Depicted by organization manager Stefano Domenicali as “a super games auto inside a SUV”, and reviewed in our elite pictures, the newcomer is expected to be authoritatively uncovered in the mid year. It’s a standout amongst the most questionable models in Lamborghini’s 54-year history, and will cost around an indistinguishable measure of cash from a Huracan and come stuffed with supercar innovation.
Talking solely to Auto Express at a different item dispatch, Domenicali anticipated that the Urus will represent the greater part of Lamborghini’s worldwide deals by 2019, with the UK conceivably being the auto’s third greatest market, as is as of now the case for the brand’s deals.
The possibility of another Lamborghini SUV – the first since the LM002 went off deal in 1993 – has been in the pipeline since 2012, when the Italian supercar maker revealed the Urus idea at that year’s Beijing Motor Show.
Power will be transmitted by means of a double grip gearbox and four-wheel drive. The Urus will likewise include a comparable electronic four-wheel-controlling framework to the new Aventador S, with electronic dampers also. Sometime later, Lamborghini will offer the SUV with the alternative of a module half breed powertrain, as well. This will be the Italian brand’s initially invasion into the universe of charge.
Domenicali disclosed to us he stays practical about his new super-SUV’s more extended term potential, regardless of the way that the request books are now swelling. “We should be modest,” he said. “We have to begin well ordered in light of the fact that it’s another world for us.”
In any case, he conceded that, for the initial two years, interest for the new Urus may be “a tiny bit insane”, on the grounds that there is continually going to be a considerable measure of enthusiasm for another SUV with so much power and execution, particularly when it’s made by a brand like Lamborghini. “It’s an energizing time for us,” he included.
Nonetheless, it’s what occurs after this wedding trip period that matters most, as per Domenicali. He knows very well indeed that once the dispatch fever has blurred, the genuine diligent work to manage the intrigue – and deals – of a close £200,000 SUV really starts.
