There have been many different takes on the SUV. But there has never been one quite like this. Lamborghini is the first manufacturer to have the sheer audacity to merge the soul of a super sports car with the functionality of an SUV. The result is the Lamborghini Urus – the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle in the world. Designed to master any terrain, from track to sand, ice, gravel or rocks, the Urus has the ability to unlock any road on the globe. And yet when you look at that futuristic, almost rocket ship-like stance, you do wonder if it might also be able to traverse the most inhospitable terrain on an unexplored planet in a galaxy far, far away.
The Lamborghini Urus looks like it just might be nuclear-powered. It’s not, of course, but with a 4.0-litre 650bhp V8 engine nestled under the bonnet, the performance is utterly ballistic. The sprint to 62mph is dispatched in a blink-of-an-eye 3.6 seconds, on the way to a 190mph top speed, where conditions legally permit. A finely-honed chassis and state-of-the-art all-wheel-drive technology provide ultra-sharp handling and optimum grip, no matter how slippery the terrain under the tyres. Offered in Urus and Urus Pearl Capsule guises, with the latter offering even greater personalisation options, the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle delivers outstanding performance on every surface. No other SUV comes close, which is just as it should be for a vehicle that carries the badge of the Lamborghini Raging Bull on its nose.
