Auto Today - - Update! -

CON­SID­ERED AMONGST the most an­tic­i­pated SUVs in the coun­try, the Ital­ian su­per­car man­u­fac­turer Au­to­mo­bili Lamborghini launched the Urus—its su­per sport util­ity ve­hi­cle in India. This will be Lamborghini’s sec­ond SUV in its lineup af­ter the LM002 SUV which was dis­con­tin­ued in 1993. It is built on the Volk­swa­gen MLB EVO plat­form which is shared by the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and the Volk­swa­gen Touareg as well.

The Lamborghini Urus gets an all-new 4.0-litre tur­bocharged V8 twin-turbo en­gine, a first for Lamborghini. The en­gine pro­duces about 641bhp and a whop­ping 850Nm of torque, which pro­pels the 2.2 tonne SUV from 0-100kmph in just 3.6 sec­onds. The en­gine is mated to an 8-speed trans­mis­sion. The SUV also gets cen­tral tor­sion dif­fer­en­tial 4-wheel drive with added torque vec­tor­ing rear dif­fer­en­tial. Priced at Rs 3 crore, ex-show­room Delhi, it will go head to head with the MercedesAMG G63 and the Bent­ley Ben­tayga.
