After years of teasing and a few delays Lamborghini has finally got it’s first-ever SUV ready for market.
True, there was the Lamborghini LM002, but the Urus is going to be (Lamborghini hopes) a large volume selling model and this one isn’t quite as off-road focussed.

Unlike the LM002, and most other Lamborghini offerings, the Urus will have the engine up front.
A 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8, it will give the 2,200kg Lamborghini a hefty 478kW and 850Nm, and a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 3.6 seconds.
It will come only with an eight-speed auto transmission, no manual.
“The Lamborghini Urus is a visionary approach based on the infusion of Lamborghini DNA into the most versatile vehicle, the SUV.” – Stefano Domenicali, Lamborghini Chairman
Lamborghini has also confirmed the technical details for the all-wheel drive system.
It features a central self-locking diff that splits the torque 40/60 to the front/rear axle, while maximum torque delivered to the front axle is 70%, 87% to the rear.
The Lamborghini Urus will also have four-wheel steering with the rear wheels able to provide steering assistance up to 3 degrees.
The system provides counter-phase steering at low speeds for added maneuverability and in-phase steering (i.e. same direction as front wheels) at high speeds.
There are a number of different driving modes, including:
Carbon Ceramic Brakes will come as standard, and they are massive! They measure 440 x 40 mm at the front and 370 x 30 mm.
The Urus wheel range will span from 21″ to 23″.
While the interior has a “sporty, yet luxurious design and finish”, according to Lamborghini.
There will be “the finest leather, Alcantara, aluminum, carbon fibre and wood”.
With seating for five, the Urus also boasts a reasonable 616 litres of cargo space (with rear seats in use).
Stefano Domenicali describes the Urus as an SUV that is on a level not previously possible.
“It is a true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, driving dynamics and emotion as well as drivable every day in a range of environments.”
We will bring you updated Australian pricing, availability and specification details when confirmed.
