The Lamborghini Urus is everything we hoped it to be

The Lamborghini Urus is everything we hoped it to be

After a number of media leaks and marketing gaffes on Lamborghini's part, the Italian supercar maker has revealed its second SUV, the much hyped Lamborghini Urus.

Lamborghini unveiled its new Urus SUV at its Italy headquarters on Monday.

The URUS will reach a top speed of 305 kph (190 mph), can go from zero to 100 kph in 3.6 seconds and brake from 100 kph to zero in 33.7 metres, company officials said.

Called the Urus, it features a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine - the first ever fitted to a Lamborghini model - that produces 641bhp and 850Nm of torque between 2,250 and 4,500rpm.

Prices for the Urus, excluding taxes, start at £131,500, with the first customers due to receive their vehicles by spring 2018.

Surprisingly to most, though, the Urus is not the first Lamborghini SUV. Users may find rear space lacking; the low roofline styling of the small "sport coupe" BMW X6 is apparent here as well, and rear-seat room in the X6 comes at a premium.

He's led Oklahoma to an 12-1 mark thus far, which included a Big 12 championship and a birth in the College Football Playoff. The Sooner quarterback finished with the second most passing yards in the country, piling up 4,340 through the air.

Between 1986 and 1993, Lamborghini built a 4×4 soberly baptized LM002.

John Giunta, a Lamborghini dealer in Sarasota, Florida said, "Now we live in a different world". The Urus will more than double the company's annual output of fewer than 3,500 units sold worldwide, according to Lamborghini.

Inside the Urus develops into a luxury sports auto, with three-spoke steering wheel incorporating a vibration damper to enhance comfort and multifunction controls including the Lamborghini Infotainment System (LIS), vehicle set-up, media, telephone and navigation.

"A bull is always aggressive, but I would like to give us a new philosophy toward the future: A bull can be gentle", he said a year ago.

As previously mentioned, Lamborghini has a reputation for creating stylish cars and even though Urus is an SUV, it still ships with a Lamborghini trademark design.

The SUV is also expected to help boost the brand in China, the world's largest auto market, where buyers prefer large sedans and crossovers.
