Lamborghini, the Italian supercar manufacturer, launched its sports utility vehicle, the Urus, in India on January 8, 2018, for Rs 3 crores. The SUV made its entry into India after almost a month of its global unveiling and following the last product of the brand, the Huracan.
Being a coupe-shaped model, the car shares some design cues with other Lamborghini performance cars, and many with the brand’s first SUV, the LMOO2. The interior becomes even more luxurious with red leather upholstery and the use of carbon fibre on the dash. Moreover, it is a five-seater, with the front seats being 12-way adjustable, and carries ample boot space of 616 litres.
The car is capable of doing a sprint from 0-100 kmph in just 3.6 seconds, making it the fastest SUV ever. It comes with six drive modes including the new Neve (snow), Terra (off-road) and Sabbia (sand) along with the usual Strada, Sport and Corsa, and a fully customisable mode – Ego.
The Urus features active torque vectoring and a rear-wheel-steering system borrowed from the Aventador S, along with an adaptive suspension system and the largest (440mm) carbon-ceramic front brake discs on any production car as standard.
While it competes with the likes of the Maserati Levante in India, all the allotted units of the Lamborghini Urus to the country have been sold out with advanced bookings.
