ABT’s Lamborghini Urus ‘Scatenato’ is an 800bhp modified SUV

German tuner ‘unleashes’ monster SUV limited to just 99 units

Published: 29 Sep 2023

German tunifications company ABT has cast its wizened gaze upon Lamborghini’s Urus SUV and bestowed it with yet more power, torque, and body. Well, what else were they going to do, turn it into a sensible, comfortable MPV?

Behold, then, the ABT Urus Scatenato. Not a reference to beloved musician Scatman John, sadly, but to the Italian meaning of ‘unleashed’, or indeed ‘wild’. And to that name comes the unsurprising power hike.

The Urus’s biturbo V8 maxes out at 657bhp in the factory-spec ‘Performante’ edition, a hurdle ABT’s Scatenato vaults with relative ease. The German tuner has fitted its own specially modified turbochargers and intercooler, along with – one suspects – an ECU tweak to produce heady totals of 800bhp and 627lb ft of torque.

There’s a better power-to-weight ratio of course, back up by a suite of exterior and interior modifications. Things like carbon fibre components dotted around the car, a new front spoiler and rear wing, a new rear skirt, flared arches, 23in ABT alloys and a new exhaust system measuring 105mm in diameter and possessed of four tailpipes.

There’s yet more exposed carbon inside the Urus’s cabin, along with a badge proudly displaying ‘Scatenato 1 of 99’. No word on price, but it’ll likely not be very sensible, nor comfortable.
