Exotic Car Of The Week - 020
This week in our Exotic Car Of The Week Series we take a look at undoubtedly the meanest looking SUV on the market - the Lamborghini Urus. It's not too often that you get to experience the raw feeling of driving a high-performance sports car in a large utility vehicle's body, the Lamborghini Urus is exactly that. To us, it feels almost as if some crazy engineer in Sant'Agata Bolognese dropped a Lamborghini Hurucan Coupe on an SUV chassis and violà - the Lamborghini Urus was invented.
As Lamborghini put it, the Urus is "the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle in the world to merge the soul of a super sports car with the functionality of an SUV." The Urus was first released as a concept car in 2012 at the Beijing auto show sporting Lamborghini's flagship naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine (same engine found in the Huracan). The actual production release of the vehicle came in 2018 and sported a re-worked 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine - a modified version of Audi's 4.0-liter V8.
A mean-looking super sports car featuring a myriad of functionality allowing for an energetic and soulful drive feel. As a true Lamborghini, The Urus boasts well-defined proportions, authentic design, and top-class performance specs. What makes it unique from the wide range of other supersport utility vehicles is that this coupe poses flying dynamics, distinctive silhouettes, and outstandingly rigid, well-proportioned framework. Hailed as the sports utility of all times, the Lamborghini Urus is as versatile as it can get with its pristine exterior design and a wide variety of customizations. Its sharp finishings make it a head-turner wherever it goes.
True Lamborghini enthusiasts know that the legendary Italian automaker never disappoints its fans whether it is the matter of design and styling or performance and safety features. The interior of the Urus represents a magnanimous display of bespoke luxury and Italian Craftsmanship - Which is further complemented by top-notch technology perks. From its driver-oriented instrument panel and unique aeronautic design, the Urus is a complete package. The infotainment system includes three TFT screens designated to suit the driver in three different situations. A quick look reveals wood finishing, Alcantara Leather, and carbon/aluminum fittings.
