Lamborghini Urus: The quickest SUV in the world!
EVER since Lamborghini first announced that they intend on entering the sports SUV space, the world has been divided into two people – those who thought it was a brilliant idea and those who didn’t. All that speculation has come to an end as the legendary Italian supercar brand finally unveiled the Urus – an SUV that comes with the purebred DNA that Lamborghini products are known for.
Behind the name
As has been the tradition at Lamborghini, the name Urus has been derived from the world of bulls. The Urus is also known as Aurochs and these bulls are known for their large size and are said to be the wild ancestors of domestic cattle. Incidentally, the Spanish fighting bull, which has been bred for over 500 years, is probably the closest to the Urus is size and appearance.
Powering the vehicle is a V8 twin-turbo engine that displaces 4.0-litres and develops 650 hp and 850 Nm of torque. The sports SUV comes with a four-wheel drive system with active torque vectoring to ensure you get best in terms of handling dynamics which is comparable to their sportscars. Capable of going from 0-100 kmph in just 3.6 seconds, this automobile can hit a top speed of 305 kmph, making it the quickest SUV in the world! It gets six different drive modes and comes with carbon ceramic brakes, adaptive air suspension and active roll stabilization.
Built to thrill
Complementing its powerful purebred persona, the machine has been designed to cater to your every need. From a visual standpoint, it has a low coupe-like styling with an aggressive chiselled design that gives it a commanding road presence. The high ground clearance adds a layer of practicality to this performance SUV and keeping with that line of thought, the car is said to be rather easy to drive around in the city as well. Kitted out with a well-appointed interior that boasts of all the creature comforts you could imagine, the vehicle is equally at home on a nice long ride or out on a track. It is this multi-dimensional personality that makes the SUV rather unique as it offers the best of both worlds–from a luxury drive to an exhilarating sportscar experience.
Lamborghini calls the Urus their first Super Sport Utility Vehicle and it is touted to create a new niche in the luxury segment. It is a vehicle that has set new benchmarks in the SUV space and it is set to launch in India in January 2018!
