Automobili Lamborghini has launches its third model the Urus, the first super sports utility vehicle, creating a new niche in the luxury segment with benchmarking power, performance and driving dynamics, unparalleled design, luxury and daily usability.

The Lamborghini Urus is as much a luxury SUV as the most powerful, with a super sports car dynamism to be enjoyed by both driver and passengers. The Lamborghini Urus has a dual personality: it is multi-dimensional. The Urus provides easy driving in the city, maximum comfort during long journeys, thrilling super sports car dynamics on the road and track, and versatile off-road abilities in a range of environments.

The Lamborghini Urus sports a new front-mounted, 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 hp (478 kW) at 6,000 rpm, maximum 6,800 rpm, and 850 Nm of maximum torque already at 2,250 rpm. With 162.7 hp/l, the Urus claims one of the highest specific power outputs in its class and the best weight-to-power ratio at 3,38 kg/hp.

The Urus accelerates from 0-100 kmph in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 kmph in 12,8 seconds and with a top speed of 305 kmph, it is the fastest SUV available. Braking is no less impressive: the Urus decelerates from 100 kmph to 0 in 33,7 m.

Its four-wheel drive system delivers safe, highly-responsive driving dynamics on every road and surface, in all-weather condition, and the active torque vectoring via a rear differential optimise the driving dynamics of the car. The rear-wheel steering provides increased agility and a reduced turning circle for increased maneuverability.

The Urus has up to six driving modes. The Tamburo driving mode selector on the centre console controls all dynamic vehicle systems and allows the selection of driving dynamics according to surface conditions or drivers' preference, via STRADA, SPORT and CORSA, as well the additional NEVE (snow) mode. As an option, two further off-road settings are offered: TERRA (off-road) and SABBIA (sand). The adaptive damper concept is automatically adjusted to different driving modes through ANIMA, or can be fully customized by the driver via the EGO mode, choosing the required rigidity for a very comfortable ride to an extremely sporty, aggressive setting dependent on driving style and road conditions.

The Urus is undoubtedly a Lamborghini, taking cues from the LM002 as well as the super sports cars that are fundamental to Lamborghini heritage like the Miura, Murciélago and Countach. Urus also has characteristics that resemble to that of the Aventador and some that are emotive of the Huracán.

The Lamborghini Urus is priced at Rs 3 crore (ex-showroom price).
