The 2018 Lamborghini Urus is the ultimate challenging model to threaten to supremacy of other high-end SUVs presently on the market, a worthy adversary which comprises the latest technology, advanced aerodynamics and sheer performance. All these attributes also recommend it for the Australian market.
It has just been announced in Sidney with lots of whistles and bells. Once it will arrive in dealerships all across the country, the Italian supercar maker is asking no less than $390,000 without the handling and destination fee.
It is a hefty price to pay for, but it is definitely worth the financial effort. For that money, customers will have to choose between a wide variety of visual tweaks and interior highlights, including exterior colour paintjobs.
Speaking of interior, Lamborghini has equipped the Urus SUV with its latest technologies – state of the art fully digital instrument cluster, touch-screen system, embedded screen for the centre console and much more – adding as well that luxurious feel that we`ve all been waiting and highlighted by leather upholstery all around the cabin.
The Lamborghini Urus SUV is also an exceptional car to drive, ensuring the smoothest driving capabilities and comfort, thanks to the advanced air suspension and active anti-roll bars, or the new driving modes – Sand, Snow, Dirt – accompanying the already existing ones on other models – Road and Track modes.
There are also the massive breaks, perhaps the biggest ever built for a Lamborghini model, built from carbon fiber and measuring 440mm up front.
Just like the rest of the new models within the VW Group, the new Lamborghini Urus SUV is also based on the MLB Evo platform, meaning new and more lightweight materials that help it to achieve better traction, fast acceleration and impressive performance figures.
Speaking of performance figures, the new Urus features an updated 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, with 478 kW and 850 Nm of torque, enabling an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds, and that despite its massive body style. The astonishing performance is also achieved thanks to the eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive, rear-wheel steering and centre limited-slip differential.
