It was back in 2012 when Lamborghini revealed the Urus SUV concept, and five years later the production spec will debut, likely at the same venue, Geneva. Five years is a long time for anything to go from concept to production (if that happens at all, which it often doesn’t). But Lamborghini has kept true to its word and for the first time since the LM002, it will have an SUV to sell. According to Autocar, the Urus will also be Lamborghini’s first plug-in hybrid.
Before some of you throw your arms into the air and scream “Why?!,” rest assured, a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 will also be available. Breathe now. Better? Good, moving on. We’ve long known that the Urus (if that it’ll even be the final name) will ride on the same VW Group platform that underpins the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga.
Beside that normal engineering, the Urus, as per Lamborghini’s R&D boss Maurizio Reggiani, will look “unadulterated Lamborghini. It has advanced extensively since the idea and the completed auto is greatly improved all around.” No protests there, yet some of you might ask why Lamborghini can’t drop the Huracan’s normally suctioned V10 in the engine?
