The wraps have finally come off Lamborghini’s new SUV.
And you won’t find any electric or hybrid power plants under the bonnet of this monster.
Urus sports a new front-mounted, 4.0 litre twin turbo aluminium V8 that delivers 478kW of power and 850Nm of torque, the latter between 2250 and 4500 revs.
It’s enough to catapult the five-seater from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 12.8 seconds, with a top speed of 305 km/h – making it the fastest SUV on the face of the planet.
Like other Lambos the name Urus is derived from a bull.
Lamborghini says the Urus, also known as Aurochs, is one of the large, wild ancestors of domestic cattle.
“Urus elevates the SUV to a level not previously possible,” says Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
The third model in the supercar line up comes with benchmark power, performance and driving dynamics, unparalleled design, luxury and daily usability.
Power is fed to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic, with cylinder deactivation to reduce fuel consumption.
The all-wheel drive system features a Torsen central self-locking diff, active torque vectoring and four-wheel steering for perfect handling, with up to six different driving modes.
One of those modes has perhaps been aptly named EGO mode and allows the driver to fully customise the drive settings.
Rounding out the package are carbon ceramic brakes, adaptive air suspension and active roll stabilisation for maximum safety and comfort.
It is fitted with 21s but up to 23-inch wheels can be added.
With a 3003mm wheelbase there’s plenty of room inside, with a low seating position that creates a comfortable and extremely spacious feel.
A high-end 1700 watt Bang & Olufsen audio system can be optioned, with 21 fully active speakers.
Urus is priced from $US200,000.
