The Lamborghini Urus has been launched in India at Rs3 crores (All-India ex-showroom). It combines every modern ultra-luxury cars buyer’s odd fantasy of having something that looks like it’s doing 200kmph all the time but will actually go fast over every terrain that you throw at it. It is the Italian automaker’s second SUV and follows in the footsteps of the legendary LM002. There has never been anything like this before in India and it may just set the precedent for what to expect when money and service costs is no object in terms of ownership experience.
So what are the highs and lows of buying and owning the Lamborghini Urus? Read on to find out.
What’s good about it?
Well….it’s an all-terrain Lamborghini and that means you can enjoy your fine piece of Italian super luxury both on the road and on the path less travelled. Then there is the fact that it looks like the Huracan but with more butch-like proportions because it is a high riding vehicle/SUV.
Once you have got past the insane looks and accepted the hate or love it looks, you can appreciate the fact that it is a fully loaded SUV with a comprehensive feature list that has sufficient space for four people to travel in ultra-luxury.
Oh wait…and because this is a Lamborghini, it sounds like it is angry all time and that should be fun when you need to get going at fancy speeds.
What’s bad about it?
In the eyes of a Lamborghini purist, if your car isn’t two-inches off the ground and powered by a V12 or a V10, then it isn’t a Lamborghini at all. This Urus is Lamborghini’s ticket to the volumes games that it has been seeking for a long time. This means it will open up the brand to a wider scope of buyers who previously shied away from getting a Raging Bull because of practical reasons. This is not a bad thing at all but it will draw the ire of the purists.
