Beijing, Chnia – At the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, Automobili Lamborghini presents the SUV Urus concept car. The Urus combines unique design, a fascinating interior and outstanding performance with versatility and everyday usability.
Output will be around 600 hp and at the same time, the Urus will offer the lowest CO2 figure of all comparable vehicles. As an SUV concept with four seats, a versatile luggage compartment, variable ground clearance and, of course, permanent all-wheel drive, the Urus will deliver unique driving fun. The interior, too, matches the standards of this “super athlete” with innovative materials featuring carbon fiber technology like the patented Forged Composite®.
“The Urus is a very concrete idea for the future of Lamborghini – as a third model line and as the perfect complement to our super sports cars,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “SUVs stand for freedom and emotion. SUVs make up one of the most successful market segments worldwide. The Urus is the most extreme interpretation of the SUV idea; it is the Lamborghini of the SUVs.”
Lamborghini claims to have founded the super-luxury SUV segment with the legendary LM002. When it was unveiled in 1986, the LM002 was a revolutionary vehicle. An automobile suitable for off-road driving with a twelve-cylinder engine and 450 hp, a top speed of more than 210 km/h, a luxurious interior and a distinctive appearance. The Lamborghini LM002 remained in production until 1992. And, although barely more than 300 units were ever built, the LM002 has secured its place in automotive history.
With the Urus, Lamborghini designers and engineers hope to create a new icon in automotive history.
The Urus has a length of 4.99 meters, a height of 1,66 meters and width of 1,99 meters. Substantial wheels are part of any Lamborghini and the all-new 24-inch wheels sport a double-spoke design and are forged from matte-finish aluminum. Five carbon fiber winglets optimize ventilation.
