Lamborghini Urus Might Get Performance Version
|   Wednesday, August 05, 2015
Lamborghini Urus, the first SUV in the modern era of theItalian brand could be offered in a performance version, headlines Autocar. Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini, said in an interview with the British newspaper that more special versions of Urus are considered, including a performance version that bears the name SuperVeloce and a more luxurious variant. By 2018, the year when Urus will go into production, Lamborghiniwill have enough time to take a decision on these variants which are expected to be released after the debut of the standard version.


Lamborghini aims that the Urus be the sportiest proposal of the luxury SUV segment, but the Italian company has the opportunity to take this idea forward both in terms of sportiness and luxury also. Thanks to this model and its derivatives, the Italian company could round up revenue without diluting the brand essence. The Urus will be built on a customized version of the new Audi Q7 platform, and future Bentley Bentayga, the latter is scheduled to become the most luxurious model in the segment.

The current BMW X6M accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (from 0 to 60 mph) in 4.2 seconds, and the standard version of Urus is expected to come up with a better value, in a context where Lamborghini has already offered to provide the most efficient SUV in the world. That means that any variation of SuperVeloce should ensure acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h under four seconds.

Regarding the Urus series version, the Italian brand chief keeps the promise of the angular exterior design but also about the interior adapting to ensure a high level of comfort for passengers. More than that, the interior will be more conventional and take into account the needs of a family for a whole year, which will be different from what happens with other models from the Sant'Agata Bolognese brand's offer.

"The look will evolve from the concept, but you will recognise it both as a pure Lamborghini and from the concept. Inside, it will have a look and feel that is a bit different from where we have been before. The surfaces are larger and the needs of occupants more around usability. The Urus must be capable of being a family's first car all year round. It must have driveability, comfort, roominess and more. Top speed and performance may be important, but the Urus is more about having a car that delivers Lamborghini levels of emotion while being capable of being handled every day, on open and congested roads" declared Winkelmann.

The Urus concept, at 4,990 mm in length, 1,990 mm in width and 1,660 mm in height, was 114 mm longer, 7 mm wider and 24 mm lower than the BMW X6 M.
Another objective set by Lamborghini for the new model is to have the lowest CO2 emissions in the segment. "The Urus will beat all comparable competitors when it comes to CO2 emissions," Lamborghini engineering boss Maurizio Reggiani stated.
