After bringing to our readers the official images, teaser videos and many other details of the new Lambo SUV, we today report that the car was unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show today. The car has been christened as the Urus or the LB736 in official speak.
The technical specs of the new bull have not been revealed but the new SUV is rumored to have the power of 600 horses. The car is being said to become the fastest 4×4 ever. We wonder if this SUV is based on the parent VW’s PL71 platform.
Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said, “The Urus is the most extreme interpretation of the SUV idea.”
Going by the pics, this Lambo doesn’t looks unlike the BMW X6 and it won’t be too wrong to say that the car looks like a Lambo supercar on steroids and that can’t be a bad thing. Can it be? As expected, the car comes with LED lamps and ORVMs with a video camera integrated in them. The highlight at the rear has to be four trapezoidal exhaust tips neatly integrated in the bumper diffuser. The SUV rides on very tasty looking 24-inch rims that quite mimic those seen on the almighty Aventador. On the inside, the seats have a familiar look and seem to be inspired by those in the Sesto Elemento (does not Italian names sound so sensuous?).The centre console runs all the way back to the rear passenger seats and one should find a liberal dosage of exotic CF inside.
It may be noted that this is the second SUV from the famous car maker, the earlier being the very macho LM002 seen in 80s. Currently, not much is known about the powertrain but our guess is that a 580 hp 5.2-liter V10 motor will be found under that hood.
