Regulars here would not be new to the name Urus. But just so that all of you know, Italian marquee Lamborghini too has been working on an SUV. Known as the Urus concept, the model was unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show. Now, ahead of its world debut scheduled to take place at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, a spy image of what seems to be a test mule of Urus as surfaced on the web.

The Urus will be the second SUV of the brand after the LM002 that was introduced back in 1986. This spy image, taken at the Munich International Airport, does not tell much about the mode. Heck, we couldn’t even decipher what model it was until a sticker on the bonnet with the ‘Lamborghini’ lettering gave us a clue.

What we did find out later was that the model is not a test mule of Lamborghini’s upcoming SUV but a regular Audi Q7 wrapped in camouflage and Lamborghini stickers for reasons unknown. Not as strange though, because the Urus will be based on the same platform as the Q7 premium SUV.
