The much-awaited Lamborghini Urus will break cover tonight. The Italian carmaker teased the SUV in a number of videos and it made many appearances in our spy shots as well. Ahead of the super-SUV's official reveal, here is everything we know so far about the high-riding Raging Bull.
The Urus will be based on the same MLB Evo platform as the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and the upcoming Volkswagen Toureg. Lamborghini will adopt a more subdued 4.0-litre V8 for the Urus. The V8 motor will churn out more than 650bhp of power and a whopping 850Nm of torque. The firepower will be channelled to all four wheels via a ZF eight-speed torque converter; a first for Lamborghini. It will also have a four-wheel-steering scrounged from the supercar sibling, the Aventador S. The high-riding Lambo can reach a ton in mere 3.7 seconds and have a top speed of 300kmph, according to the Italian marque. Lamborghini boasts that the SUV tips the scale at 2,154 kilograms.
But Urus won’t get the monstrous 6.0-litre V12 from VW Group’s engine portfolio. Reason being that the Urus is targeted in mass markets such as China where the displacement rules are stringent.
Five driving modes:
The Urus will get the most advanced version of Lamborghini’s ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligence Management) drive selector. The fighter jet-style selector will get six driving modes as seen in the teaser videos. The SUV will come with six driving modes – Strada, Sport, Corsa, Sabbia (sand), Terra (land), and Neve (snow). This dynamic driving mode is scrounged from the Huracan and Aventador supercars. Of these, the last three are seen for the first time in a car from Sant’Agata Bolognese.
The Raging Bull will come fitted with massive 17.3-inch carbon ceramic rotors for the front axle paired with 10-piston callipers. While at the rear, there will be 14.6-inch discs coupled with four pistons. These are the biggest brakes ever fitted on a production SUV. The SUV will ride on 21-inch wheels wrapped in bespoke Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres. The tyres will come with an “L” insignia for Lamborghini as seen on the exclusive hypercar, the Centenario.
The Urus will have all the essential features of a modern day SUV which will make it an everyday car but will instill the Lamborghini DNA. The SUV will pack all the bells and whistles inside the cabin as well. The instrument cluster will be an all-digital unit.
Lamborghini will manufacture the Urus at the same factory in Sant’ Agata Bolognese, Italy along with the other two Raging Bulls. The SUV Lambo is promised to double the production capacity of the plant when it rolls out in 2019. When launched, the Urus is expected to break the sales record for the Raging Bull. Lamborghini will promptly introduce the Urus to India once it goes on sale in international markets.
