Lamborghini Urus SUV
Named after a bull, styled after a 4x4, meet the most practical Lamborghini ever
After Porsches, Maseratis, Bentleys and Alfas its Lamborghini’s turn to take the wraps off its latest SUV. Now we know that Porsche gets all the credit for being the first among supercar brands to take a plunge into the SUV business but sorry Porsche, Lamborghini did it first with the LM002 in 1986. Now almost two and a half decades later, here Lamborghini is with another SUV, which is practical, and should let you have a good family time with the wife and kids. We can just imagine what the designers must have gone through to make this new SUV.
As we can imagine design briefs for cars might be very simple at Lamborghini. Something like - make it fast and make it loud. These guys don’t get bothered by questions like "How many cup holders should we put? Is there enough space in the boot? How is the all round visibility?" Lamborghinis are built with one purpose - go-fast, change directions fast and drop jaws while doing all the things mentioned above. When you hear that a Lamborghini can seat four in comfort and carry luggage for your weekend get-away then you know Urus must have given the designers and engineers some sleepless nights when it came to practicality.
Now practicality can be a relative term, and when it comes to Lamborghini, practicality can have a very different meaning. As with car makers downsizing their engines Lamborghini has also done the same. So instead of using a V12 like the one used in Lamborghini’s first SUV the LM002, the Urus uses a much practical V10. Don’t ask us how many litres, as Lamborghini says this is a concept and information is limited. Then again, Lamborghini is quick to point out that the engine delivers 590bhp, which when compared to the Aventador’s 690bhp does seem very practical.
As usual, external styling looks like a cross between an F-22 Raptor and an SUV. It’s unmistakably a Lamborghini just a lot bigger, and still lethal in the right hand.
