Here's Everything You Need To Know About The Lamborghini Urus

Now that the Urus has finally been launched, its spec has been confirmed. We can tell you that it's rather fast, suitably striking and packed to the rafters with Audi-sourced tech
Here's Everything You Need To Know About The Lamborghini Urus

The Lamborghini Urus is here, and it’ll do 190mph. This Italian-suited Bentley Bentayga with a heavy splash of bonkers is about to make Lamborghini a fortune.

It has more angles than Pythagoras. It really is hard to see anything else. Let’s call it dramatic. You’re not likely to miss one travelling down your high street, anyway. Hopefully Urus owners won’t drive too close to the kerb, because those intake vents could easily collect pets and small children.

There’s much to shout about in the performance stakes. On top of the impressive top speed it will explode away from the line pretty damn briskly. The 0-62mph sprint is put to sleep in 3.6 seconds, making it, well, fast enough for most people.

At the front is the expected twin-turbo V8 shared with the Bentayga and Audi RS 6. We admit we’re not sold on the amount of parts-sharing going on, here, but we also know it’s a very effective engine.

It clonks out 641bhp, redlines at 6800rpm and has peak torque of 627lb ft. The muscle arrives as low down as 2250rpm, and the stats just about make it the fastest SUV around. The V8 Bentayga has ‘just’ 429bhp.

It’s not all about speed, though. The V8 has cylinder deactivation and is the most fuel-efficient lump ever to find a home in a Lamborghini. It positively sips at super unleaded at a rate of one gallon for every 22.2 miles you drive (gently). Below 3000rpm and at light throttle pressure, four pots shut down and torque is reduced to a peak of 173lb ft, or about as much as your average food blender.

We already know it will go off-road, and we also know about its reluctance to roll on a race track. We can now add to the data banks four-wheel steering that seriously shrinks the turning circle. Normally 60 per cent of the power will go to the back, but that can sometimes rise to 87 per cent.

The interior tech is all Audi parts bin stuff, which means it looks good and it works. Might it irk some Lamborghini buyers that the same infotainment unit decorating the console of their £165,000 (plus options) Urus is also found in sales reps’ motorway workhorses? Possibly. There has been no expense spared, inside the Urus, to fit it with as much of Audi’s latest tech as possible, so it does at least look good in situ.

Strada, Sport, Corsa and Neve, which means snow, are the four on-road driving modes. Optionally, Terra takes things up a notch, literally, courtesy of air suspension, while Sabbia is the second non-standard mode; for sand driving if you’re really feeling ambitious.

It seems to have gone all practical and German, if you look past the arresting styling and huge performance figures. Four six-foot adults can apparently sit comfortably with loads of room to spare. At the back is a 600-litre boot, nicely square for ease of use.

Emissions of 290g/km are fairly reasonable, too, not that such concessions will save the Urus from eye-watering taxation in many countries around the world. It’s a £2000 first year road tax payment in the UK. We don’t expect it to put many people off.

I was expecting a V12 really, then it would be the most bonkers SUV in the market. Just like the LM002 back then

It’s a Lamborghini. Oh no hide yourselves away. Is nothing sacred?
Seriously people get real. The Urus is gonna be a way for them to get more money. To bring overall company emissions down. So they can keep the NA Beasts we know and love alive for as long as possible. If you honestly are annoyed at this decision then you don’t truly support Lamborghini. They’re doing this to make better supercars for the enthusiasts.
Get. A. Grip. (literally because AWD xd)

Exactly. And the same logic was used to make the 911 a spectacular feat of engineering, via the use of the Cayenne and Macan.

I object to being told I don’t truly support Lamborghini if I’m annoyed by this.

I get that it is a viable way of making money but to me, Lamborghini has sold out. I mean, a SAND driving mode? I wonder who the (incredibly rich) target market is.
And let’s face it, the Urus won’t be the sole vehicle in a buyer’s collection. What’s to say these buyers will stray from the Bentayga/Range Rover et al?
With all the parts and such being shared with Audi, can you even call it a Lamborghini?

I can support Lamborghini and can still be annoyed. Fin.
