Can you believe Lamborghini is creating an SUV?
What??? Are you telling me that the famous Italian sports cars maker is making an SUV? A Sport Utility Vehicle? Yes it is. It is the Lamborghini Urus Concept. The images of Lamborghini’s latest SUV are leaked ahead of its debut at 2012 Beijing Motor Show that will be held next week. The Lamborghini Urus seems to adopt some designs from the Aventador, one of Lamborghini’s flagships. From the front, the concept SUV looks like a jacked-up Aventador. A view from side, it is a blend of supercar with a four-door high-riding hatchback.
Unlike some other supercar makers, Lamborghini has a history with SUV, the Rambo Lambo (Lamborghini LM002) that has only 328 units produced from 1986 until 1993. However, the Urus looks nothing like the Rambo. It is totally a new concept SUV that the Italian car marque would like to target on the SUV market due to the demand for expensive and luxury SUVs.
The specifications and drivetrain details for the Urus is not disclose by Lamborghini yet. The only information leaked on the internet is the Urus is generating around 600 hp and it is an all-wheel drive vehicle. Thanks to many lightweight materials such as carbon fiber, the weight of the car is reduced around 220 pounds compared to all its competitors. Other features found on the car are movable rear spoilers and variable front spoilers with the purpose to increase aerodynamics at high speed for better fuel consumption.
Competitors or similar cars with the Lamborghini Urus Concept: Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, Volkswagen Touareg, and Bentley EXP 9F Concept.
