Those who dabble in recent automotive history will know that a Lamborghini off-roader isn’t a new idea – they had the LM002 back in the 1980s which stuck a Countach V12 engine into an enormous angular, boxy body that was broadly terrible at everything. But Lamborghini started out making tractors, so it was dismissed as a mere smudge in their excellent playbook. Fast forward to 2017 though, and the world has gone crazy for SUVs – Bentley has a super-fast luxurious one, Aston Martin are bringing one out next year, Ferrari are rumoured to be making one so of course Lamborghini had to make one again.
Thankfully they had a concept back in 2013 that was great looking so decided to go with that – the Urus. Based around the same platform as the Audi Q7 and Bentayga, the Urus is a proper off-roader with serious capability (Snow, Sand and Mud modes are available) that also handles like a sports car (according to them). It may be expensive, but you’re getting the Lamborghini name and the crazy looks associated with it along with quite a bit of performance. A 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 sits under the bonnet putting out 641bhp which means 62mph can be reached in 3.6 seconds. Thanks to the slippery shape it tops out at 190mph too – staggering for such a big beast. Thankfully it also has the biggest brakes ever fitted to a production car to help stop it from such big numbers. Is it pretty? Arguably not. Will it sell? Absolutely!
