The 2019 Lamborghini Urus is here and it’s a supercar in SUV’s clothing

Lamborghini has finally introduced a supercar that you can drive every day without fretting about damaging the super-expensive bodywork on every other speed hump. Yes, the Lambo SUV is finally here and it looks just as sharp and crazy as all the supercars the Italian marque has ever built. Called the Lamborghini Urus, it’s named after a whole breed of bulls instead of a particular fighting bull like most Lamborghinis. The Urus was first showcased in its concept form at the 2012 Beijing auto show and its incredible Lamborghini hasn’t changed much in terms of design on the production version. All the striking design features of the concept have been retained and it’s unmistakably a Lamborghini.

The Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that delivers 650 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. Lamborghini claims the Urus has the best weight-to-power ratio of any SUV on the market which has helped it to become the fastest production SUV in the world. The Italian carmaker quotes a 0-62 mph time of 3.6 seconds, a 0-124 mph time of 12.8 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph for the Urus, which can put many modern sport cars to shame. The largest carbon-ceramic brakes ever to be fitted on a production car, adaptive air suspension, active roll stabilization, and 4-wheel steering are also part of the package. Lamborghini plans to build about 1,000 units of the SUV next year then increase the volume to 3,500 annually starting in 2019 which will double the company’s production. There is no word on the pricing as of yet but it is expected to start below $200,000.
