As with all Lamborghini models, the Urus name is derived from bulls, and Urus, alternatively known as Aurochs, are extinct wild ancestors of their domestic counterparts. The new Urus follows a one third body, one third window ratio. It boasts of a peaked bonnet as is also seen on the Miura and Aventador. It gets a front splitter and air intakes and diagonal hood lines. The Urus measures 5112mm long, 2016mm wide and 1638mm high. It has a wheelbase of 3003mm and weighs around 2200 kgs. Its chassis is built of aluminum and steel to enhance stiffness and doors are of aluminum.
Lamborghini Urus sports a total of 6 drive modes which give it the right balance and performance befitting of a Lamborghini. Strada mode quietens the engine offering better driving dynamics, Sport model lowers the Urus for better stability, Corsa mode gives off performance focused drive and there are Neve, Terra and Sabbia modes for snow, off road and sand respectively.
Interiors of Lamborghini Urus is seen with a Y design dashboard, hexagonal elements, air vents and cup holders and three spoke steering wheel. It also gets the latest in Lamborghini infotainment system, 12 way adjustable heated electric seats, 18 way adjustable front seats and a 616 liter capacity boot.
Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0 liter front mounted, twin turbo petrol engine offering 650 hp power at 6,800 rpm and 850 Nm torque at 2,240 to 4,500 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph is achieved in 3.6 seconds and it has a top speed of 306 kmph. Not only it has the best acceleration in the segment, it also has the best braking in the segment.
Launched in India just 40 days after its global debut, Lamborghini India is confident that the Urus will be their best selling car this year.
