Lamborghini unveils new Urus super SUV

Lamborghini-Urus

Those are all very likely destinations for the Urus when it begins rolling off the line early next year at a new state-of-the-art production facility in Lamborghini's Sant'Agata Bolognese home that features the highest level of automation the automaker has ever used. All of that comes from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and the SUV's top speed is 190 miles per hour. That 0-100 figure at least, is trumped by the Tesla Model X's best of 3.1.

Lamborghini has finally taken the wraps off its new Urus SUV after months of teasing snippets of the new vehicle to expectant fans. In normal driving, its front-to-rear torque split is 40/60, but up to 70 percent can be sent to the front and 87 percent can go to the rear in certain scenarios.

Torque vectoring, active roll stabilisation and carbon ceramic brakes are other features and Lamborghini claims the Urus cannot only reach 124mph from a standing start in just 12.3 seconds but can also stop from 60mph in less than 34 metres. 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.

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.

Safety and driver assist technologies will extend to high beam assist, front and rear parking sensors, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, cruise control, and up to eight airbags.

Excluding local taxes, the Urus has a suggested retail price of $390,000. In fact, it's been an extremely long road to production for this auto - the concept version of the Urus was first revealed at the Beijing motor show in 2012.
