Lamborghini debuts the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle
Automobili Lamborghini launches its third model the Lamborghini Urus, the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle, and creates a new niche in the luxury segment with benchmarking power, performance and driving dynamics, unparalleled design, luxury and daily usability.
The Urus features a 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 650 and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 12,8 seconds and with a top speed of 305 km/h it is the fastest SUV available. The name Urus is derived from the world of bulls. The Urus, also known as Aurochs, is one of the large, wild ancestors of domestic cattle.
The Urus features an automatic eight-speed gearbox transmitting all that power to a highly-responsive four-wheel drive system delivering safe, driving dynamics on every road and surface, in all weather.
The Urus’ braking system is commensurate with its super sports car performance, ensuring high thermal resistance and accommodating frequent and heavy braking, even from high speeds and in extreme conditions such as on track or at high altitude. Carbon Ceramic Brakes (CCB) are standard on the Lamborghini. The SSUV is priced at $200K excluding taxes and fees.
