On Monday, Lamborghini presented its first new Urus SUV, at its headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy.
The long-awaited SUV comes with a good look at its specifications. Urus offers a more practical dimension to Lamborghini like Espada offered 45 years ago. Lamborghini is among the last automakers worldwide who has added an SUV or crossover to its portfolio of models.
The Urus packed with the Mercedes G-Class, the trailblazing Porsche Cayenne, and the Bentley Bentayga front engine. It comes with the two-thirds body, one-third window ratio of the marque’s supercars.
Urus has a 650 horsepower, 626 lb. ft. of torque between 2250-4500 rpm and 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine. It can hit 60 mph in less than 3.6 seconds, and its top speed is 189 mph. the standard model includes adaptive air suspension and active roll stabilization as well as carbon ceramic brakes. It weighs about 4850 lbs.
It comes with the hexagonal wheel arche and the sizes of the wheels range from 21 to 23 inches and the company will produce them with specially developed Pirelli tires. In the U.S. the starting price of this brand new SUV will be $200,000.
John Giunta, a Lamborghini dealer in Sarasota, Florida said, “Now we live in a different world.” “The line of this is more modernized, and something of this price point can survive now,” John added.
Urus could be the entry-level model for Lamborghini and the company has estimated the annual sales around 3,500 which are equal to 2016’s combined sales of its Huracán and Aventador.
