Lamborghini unveils Urus 'super' SUV

  • Lamborghini has also confirmed the technical details for the all-wheel drive system

The Lamborghini Urus Concept was introduced back in 2012 and after 5 years of waiting, the production version of the high performance Italian SUV has arrived.

With its 650-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 engine, the Urus is something that has never been seen before on a road, according to the firm's design director, Mitja Borkert. As mentioned, it's the first Lamborghini to be turbocharged and it can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. A top speed of 190 miles per hour, carbon fiber body and turbocharged engine, the Urus is built for speed and utility.

Lamborghini, which is owned by Volkswagen's Audi, claims the Urus was modeled after the LM002, a military truck-like vehicle made in the 1980s, and turned into civilian transportation, like the American Hummer.

Its low-down grunt is supplemented by a four-wheel-drive system that adopts active torque vectoring via a rear differential and rear-wheel steering - which was first used on the Aventador S supercar.

Torque is normally split 40:60 front-to-rear but 70 per cent can be sent to the front or 87 per cent to the rear, depending on conditions. A selection of summer, winter, all season, sport and all terrain tyres from Pirelli P-Zero range are available in sizes up to 285/35 for the front, and 325/30 at the rear.

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. It's equipped with six different driving modes designated Strada, Sport, Corsa, Sabbia, Terra and Neve, which translate to Street, Sport, Track, Sand, Land (Off-Road) and Snow.

With adaptive air suspension the ride height can be raised from its 6.3-inch standard setting to 10 inches and the Urus can be specified with either 21 or 23-inch wheels.

With seating for five, the Urus also boasts a reasonable 616 litres of cargo space (with rear seats in use).

Inside, there's adual touchscreen displays powered by an "LIS" multimedia system.

Pre-production of the Urus kicked off in April at Lamborghini's Sant'Agata Bolognese factory, but full production won't start until 2018.

The auto is touted as the fastest SUV in the world, with four seats inside as the company hopes to replicate the success of the Bentley Bentayga.
