Lamborghini has confirmed that the company is working on a sleek and an excitingly fast SUV. Even though, there is no official word on the same, it has been confirmed that they will make an official announcement when the time is right.
According to latest updates, it has been confirmed that Lamborghini Urus, the SUV from the fastest car maker in the world will launch in dealership stores in 2018. While we have a good two years to go before it is possible to experience the vehicle on road, the designers and the team behind the vehicle has already confirmed that it will be the fastest SUV on road giving a tough fight to all their competitors.
The Urus is expected to be powered by a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine. While the company does have access to V10 and V12 engines, they may not provide the necessary horsepower to keep a powertrain going on wide range of terrains. Lamborghini is a company that has been busy making sports cars and high speed beasts for many decades now. However, trying to create an all-wheel drive SUV for varied terrains should have given the research and development team a tough time before arriving on the right components.
If the car uses the engine as predicted, it can easily accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 4 seconds or lesser. Some of the competing models that pose a serious competition to the upcoming Lamborghini SUV include the Cayenne Turbo from Porsche and the Bentayga. But, all these cars take more than four seconds to get the job done which the brand aims to fix with a turbocharged powertrain.
Technical specifications of the vehicle and its design elements remain sparse at the moment. There are no spy shots available because the car is still in its early development stage and it may be a year or so before we could start drooling at the concept art the designers may come up with.
According to Lamborghini, the brand is looking forward to creating a brand new platform. It will enable them to set a new benchmark in the world of luxury class sport SUVs. If they succeed in luring buyers to opt for their vehicle, it wouldn’t be long before we can see every other automobile manufacturer following suit. But, it’s going to be one long wait to cope with.
