This tuned Lamborghini Urus has over 800bhp

The Urus didn’t need more power. It's got some anyway

Published: 30 Jan 2019

If you thought the Lamborghini Urus couldn’t get any shoutier, my oh my, were you wrong. Take a look at this one. It’s been modified by German tuner Manhart to produce 801bhp and 723lb ft, a whole 160bhp and 97lb ft more than the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 gives as standard. Crucially it now outguns the Jeep Trackhawk.

The power bump comes courtesy of beefier turbos, a reinforced eight-speed automatic transmission and a freer-breathing exhaust, plus an ECU remap to make everything work together as it should.

Performance? Brisk, no doubt. The standard Urus already does 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds, so this one ought to do it in a little over three. That’s outrageous in a car that weighs 2.2 tonnes.

To make sure people know this isn’t just another Urus, Manhart has added a bodykit from TopCar Design which includes wider wheelarches, intricate bumpers front and rear, and incredibly large wheels. And a stripe, which we can confirm gives a measurable improvement in performance all by itself*. The end result is not subtle, to say the least.

No word on pricing, but expect to pay a substantial sum of money over and above what you’ve already spent on the base car. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps.
