The Lamborghini Urus Super SUV Has Arrived, And It’s Insane

Lamborghini’s super SUV, the Urus, is finally here, and it’s a true Raging Bull with performance and driving dynamics matching that of Lamborghini’s regular supercars.

Previewed by the Urus concept years back, the production Urus looks like, well, an Aventador on stilts and turned out better than we expected, delivering aggressive and sporty proportions for an SUV.

The interior design is also a balance of sportiness and luxury and is available with a plethora of premiums features such as a choice of 12- or 18-way adjustable front seats with ventilation and massage.

Sharing platforms with the Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne, the Urus is powered by a front-mounted, 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 — Lamborghini’s first-ever turbo engine — that cranks 650 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 630 pound-feet of torque at just 2,250 rpm.

That power is divided between all four wheels by a torque-vectoring drivetrain with a 40/60 rear bias that can be dynamically shifted 70-percent to the front or 87-percent rear.

As expected, the Urus is very fast for an SUV, accelerating from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.6 seconds, a tenth of a second quicker than Porsche’s Cayenne Turbo, before reaching a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h). It’s the fastest prediction SUV ever made.

The chassis as designed with driving dynamics and passenger comfort in mind, promising an enjoyable ride for every occupant. Adaptive air suspension allows the driver to raise the ride height, while rear-wheel steering helps deliver more precise handling.

Stopping power is provided by carbon-ceramic brakes that bring the performance ‘ute to a stop from 62 mph in less than 111 feet.

Deliveries begin in spring 2018, with pricing in the United States stating at $200,000.

As an SUV, the Lamborghini Urus is considered an abomination by those who think Lamborghini should only make traditional supercars. However, it’s actually not Lamborghini’s first-ever SUV. That title goes to the LM002 of late 1980s, and that Lambo was and truly remains an aberration!

So, what do you think about the Lamborghini Urus? Is it what you expected?

Lamborghini Sian Is An Electrified Hypercar With 819-HP



Lamborghini Sian Hybrid Hypercar

The most powerful Lamborghini ever also happens to be the brand’s first electrified production car.

This is the Lamborghini Sian, a limited-edition hybrid hypercar that takes its name from the Bolognese word for flash or lightning.

Power is sourced from a naturally aspirated V12 that has been coupled with a supercapacitor and an electric motor to generate a combined output of 819 horsepower, enough propulsion for the driver to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in under 2.8 seconds and a top 217 mph (349 km/h).

The Sián is Lamborghini’s most powerful model ever and boasts the best power-to-weight ratio of its V12 lineup, thanks largely as a result of using a supercapacitor instead of a traditional lithium-ion battery pack.

“With the Sián we are defining our route to innovation and we are setting new rules in new technologies, instead of just following existing solutions,” says Lamborghini CTO Maurizio Reggiani. “The result is the Lamborghini Sián, which includes the world-first application of a supercapacitor for hybridization and new materials technology.”

The electric motor, which is incorporated into the gearbox and provides a modest 34 horsepower, is supposedly the first time that a low-voltage hybrid motor has been directly connected to a car’s wheels, enabling low-speed reversing and parking maneuvers using electric power alone.

In terms of design, while not as dramatic as the concept, the Lamborghini Sian borrows a lot of its design elements from the Terzo Millennio, featuring perfect supercar proportions that betrays its speed.

As indicated by the ‘63’ badge on the little carbon fiber shark fins at the back, only 63 examples of this dream car will be built, and all have already been sold. Expect pricing to start somewhere around $3.6 million.

Lamborghini Urus SUV Is Getting Crazier Performance Version



Lamborghini Urus

Because the regular Urus just isn’t hot enough…

A high-performance version of the popular Lamborghini Urus SUV is reportedly under development.

Citing a well-placed source within the automaker, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman the super duper Lamborghini could arrive by 2022. Unfortunately, he hasn’t able to get any details.

The regular Urus shares platforms with the Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne and sources its power from a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that produces 641 horsepower (478 kilowatts) and 627 pound-feet, channeled to the four wheels by an eight-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful version would make sense considering that hotter versions of other Lamborghinis are either already available or coming soon.

The Bentley Bentayga Speed features a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 that pumps out 626 hp and 664 lb-ft. of torque, while the upcoming Porsche Turbo S E-Hybrid Cayenne is expected to make at least 677 hp and 626 lb-ft. Needless to say, Lamborghini’s engineers already have some truly capable engines to work with.

A sportier, more aerodynamic design and superior handling will also be part of the deal, as is a more race-orientated interior.

So, what do you want from the high-performance Lamborghini Urus? Let us know in the comments below.

Lamborghini Sales Soar Thanks To Urus SUV

The Urus is a smash hit, meaning there will be more vehicles like it.

If you had issue with Lamborghini having an SUV, then be prepared for even more disappointment. The Urus has been so successful that the supercar company will likely make more SUVs.

According to , Lamborghini sales “soared” by 51 percent to 5,750 units in 2018, thanks in large part to the introduction of the Urus. comprised nearly 31 percent (1,761 units) of that total.

Americans especially love the Urus — approximately 9 percent (500 units) of all Lamborghini sales were Urus models sold in the US.

In fact, the Urus has proven so popular that, according to Lamborghini exec Federico Foschini, the model has so many orders that it will take 10 to 12 months to fulfill them. He forecasts 7,000 to 8,000 in total sales for 2019.

The backlog seems to be artificial, however, so don’t expect to see the striking super SUV everywhere you turn. “We don’t want to flood the market, because we are still in a luxury segment and we need to keep control of the offer compared to the demand,” Foschini told Automotive News.

With Lamborghini speeding to the bank on the back of the Urus’ success, is it a wonder that even companies like Ferrari and Lotus are considering an SUV?
