2019 Lamborghini Urus
The Ultimate SUV
When high-end sports and luxury car makers such as Porsche and Bentley enter the global SUV market (with the Cayenne and Bentayga respectively) you know that any company determined to maintain its slice of the action will eventually follow suit. In Lamborghini’s case, the company waited until 2018 to launch its SUV dubbed Urus, but when it did, it made sure there was no mistaking the vehicle for anything but a Lamborghini.
Unlike its sportscar range which has traditionally featured V12 or V10 powerplants, the Urus uses a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that gives the car the spread of power and torque that its spectrum of roles demanded. And while the 478 kW of power is remarkable, the Urus’ real secret lies in its 850 Nm of torque produced at just 2,250 rpm, giving the vehicle huge flexibility.
Lambo to the Core
The all-wheel-drive system allows the Urus to cross any terrain an owner is likely to point it at, with selectable off-road modes to tailor its behaviour and feedback. And while the higher ground clearance helps in that pursuit, the Urus has not forgotten that it is a member of the Lamborghini family. That’s borne out in the standard carbon-ceramic braking package that features a front brake caliper with no less than 10 pistons.
Available in both four and five-seater configurations, this example is the more practical five-seater. It also features a huge list of standard gear including a panoramic sunroof, heated massage seats, premium Bang and Olufsen stereo (including digital radio) 22-inch alloy wheels, navigation, active cruise-control and much more.
Features include: Panoramic sunroof, Bang & Olufsen sound system, heated and ventilated massage seats, titanium matte 22 inch alloy wheels, red seat stitching, matt black exhaust, red brake callipers, carbon-ceramic brake rotors. Timber interior inserts, digital radio, navigation, adaptive air suspension, forward collision warning, keyless entry and start, torque vectoring, voice recognition.
