The Lamborghini Urus SUV Concept will be the Italian automaker’s second take on an SUV when the production version goes on sale in a few years. Its first SUV was the revolutionary yet homely LM002, which was sold from 1986 to 1992. With the Urus, Lamborghini promises the most powerful series production SUV.
Based on the same platform as the Bentley EXP 9 F Concept and the next-gen VW Touareg, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7, the Urus concept measures 4.99 m long (196.5 inches), 1.99 m (78.4 inches) wide and 1.66 m (65.4 inches) tall, making it just a tad bit bigger than the BMW X6. Its unique exterior features traditional Lamborghini design cues, with key highlights including extremely tight, razor-sharp lines; clean, taut, finely executed surfaces; narrow window surface that tapers sharply toward the rear; large air intakes; a Y shape in the LED headlamps; and substantial wheels arches filled with 24-inch alloys.
The Urus seats four individuals and features a cockpit that is thematically similar to the one found in the Aventador. The center console is said to be an open, skeletal carbon fiber structure made from Forged Composite. The four bucket seats are also made of Forged Composite and are cladded in single cushions. Likely to improve performance, seating position is said to be lower and flatter than in any other SUV in the segment.
Lamborghini had little to say about the engine, except that it will produce 600-hp and have the lowest CO2 emissions in its segment. As an SUV, the Urus will feature a permanent all-wheel drive system with a variable height suspension capability.
