Lamborghini unveils new Urus SUV

After a number of media leaks and marketing gaffes on Lamborghini's part, the Italian supercar maker has revealed its second SUV, the much hyped Lamborghini Urus.

With its 650-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 engine, the Urus is something that has never been seen before on a road, according to the firm's design director, Mitja Borkert. The official pricing for the United States has not yet been announced, but it is expected to start at just over $200,000. The luxury vehicle maker has said that the first deliveries of their new Urus will start in the spring of next year. "It is a true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, driving dynamics and emotion as well as drivable every day in a range of environments".

"The Urus elevates the SUV to a level not previously possible, the Super SUV", said chief executive Stafano Domenicali.

This vehicle naturally opens the door to new possibilities for Lamborghini as a brand as it targets a different type of customer. Taking more like a Hummer that sports vehicle, this amusing auto was driven by a huge V12 engine.

According to Lamborghini, it can speed from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and topping out at 190 miles per hour.

Other features on the new Urus include adaptive air suspension and active roll stabilization, plus carbon ceramic brakes.

It also features rear-wheel steering and a Torsen central self-locking differential that splits torque 40/60 to the independent front and rear axles.

The Urus sits on specially-developed Pirelli P-Zero tyres wrapped on 21-inch alloys as standard, with 23-inch wheels an optional extra. The SUV also offers high practicality quotient with a boot space of 616-litre that can be further extended by folding the rear row.

The looks of the Urus are distinctly Lamborghini, with the sharp creases, coupe-like styling and recognisable Y-shaped LED headlights on show.

The name Urus refers to a large bull which is an ancestor of domestic cattle, following Lamborghini's tradition of bovine-related names.
