The new Lamborghini SUV is set to be revealed next week at the Beijing motor show, and the name on the luxury sport utility vehicle will apparently be “Urus.”

Although initial reports had said that the nameplate “MLC” would be attached to the SUV, is has been reported that the name will be Urus. There were also rumors that “Deimos” could be the name, as Lamborghini trademarked it recently, but they must be saving it for another upcoming model.

Urus is the name of the larger ancestor of today’s domestic cattle, and it follows in line with Lambo’s naming scheme, using the names of bulls for its cars.

The Lambo is rumored to be run by the same V10 that’s in the Gallardo, making 575-hp, and will be based on the same platform as the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and VW Touareg.

Although there is some leaked information, and images of the new SUV, all will be revealed soon enough.
