The new Lamborghini SUV the Urus

 

 “Powerful, but not bulky” and “muscular and highly athletic, but also elegant”.

The new luxury Lamborghini SUV concept car is a big step up from the old LM002. The new 4 wheel drive super SUV could be powerd by a 4 litre V8 engine that powers the Audi S6, S7 and the Bentley Continental GT. This engine results with a big loud throaty engine, fast top speed of 180mph and rapid acceleration 0-60mph in 4 seconds. The Urus styling from a side angle looks very similar to the Landrover Evoque with the pitched roof. Lamborghini proclaim the styling is “Powerful, but not bulky” and “muscular and highly athletic, but also elegant”.  

In order to achieve the best efficiency, Lamborghini says that the Urus will also be the lightest SUV out there. It will use the carbon fibre technology that was used to develop the Sesto Elemento. among other weight-saving measures.They strive to keep the weight down and the power output up.

 

In keeping with the VW groups well, the Urus will sit in the same catogorie as the next generation of SUVs from Audi(Q7) Porshe(Cayenne GTS) and VW(Touareg).

Lamborghini plan to manufacture  about 3000  Urueses per year, almost triple of the Gallardos and Aventadors production rate.

The all new Porshe SUV is the Cayenne GTS. The GTS could be a main rival for the Urus as its a fast and light . The new Porsche GTS is set to be released in 2013. The Cayenne is similar to the Lamborghini, but the Lamborghinis weight is alot lighter, therefore achieving better performance.


 


Lamborghini is part of Volkswagen’s automotive Group, so it always seemed logical that the Italian company would borrow ideas from its German friends. The Urus will be longer, and wider than the Cayenne, which is the sportiest of all the VW-family SUVs.
