That’s right, Lamborghini made an SUV. What a time to be alive, huh?
The supercar-inspired SUV bearing the legendary fighting bull badge has been the talk of the industry since Lambo took the wraps off earlier this month. But is it really worth its whopping $200,000 price tag?
That’s up for debate, but it’s clear that if you’re driven by heart-pounding, adrenaline-rushing thrill rides, the Lamborghini Urus aims to please. The new high-performance SUV, touted as the first ever “Super” Sport Utility Vehicle, is powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine that puts out a monstrous 650 horsepower and more than 620 lb-ft. of torque.
But the vehicle’s massive power numbers are just the tip of the iceberg.
When it comes to the coveted 0 to 60 mph time by which all supercars are measured, the Lamborghini SUV clears the run in less than 3.6 seconds.
Top speed? A ferocious 190 mph, making it the fastest SUV on the planet.
The Urus also features a selectable feature called CORSA, one of six available driving modes, that is said to help give the SUV race-like performance dynamics on the track.
In addition, the Urus adopts Lamborghini’s new high-tech rear-wheel steering system. First introduced on the Lamborghini Aventador S, the system constantly monitors the vehicle’s speed and selected driving mode to enhance the Urus’ maneuverability, especially in high-performance situations.
The 650-horsepower Lambo SUV is also available with an optional off-road package that includes metal-reinforced bumpers and additional underfloor protection for tackling snow, forests or even dune surfing.
So for die-hard performance buffs with $200,000 to spare, the Lamborghini Urus might be well worth the cash.
