The Lamborghini Urus is an SUV manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer Lamborghini. It was unveiled on 4 December 2017 and was put on the market for the 2018 model year. The name comes from the Urus, the ancestor of modern domestic cattle, also known as the aurochs.
The Lamborghini Urus concept was unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show on 23 April 2012.
Later, the SUV was also shown at Pebble Beach in 2012. Powered by a 5.2 L V10 engine shared with the Gallardo, the engine generated a theoretical maximum power output of 600 PS (592 hp; 441 kW) and was accompanied with an all-wheel drive system.
The Urus was reported to have the lowest carbon emissions as compared to its stablemates (i.e. the Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and the Audi Q7). The Urus was conceived as a perfect daily driver unlike the other offerings from the brand.
The sharp-lined exterior design of the SUV takes heavy influence from the company’s V12 flagship, the Aventador. The production version of the SUV was introduced in 2017 with major changes done
to the exterior and featuring a different powertrain than that of the concept.
