Get ready, in a few more years the newest Lamborghini model will be heading to production.
It is being reported that the Urus SUV will be built at the Volkswagen Group’s factory in Slovakia starting in 2017 and will use a modified version of the Group’s MLB platform that will also be underpinning the next-generation Porsche Cayenne. The plant will also be responsible for building the Cayenne, VW Touareg, Audi Q7 and bodies for the upcoming Bentley SUV.
Lamborghini is just one of many luxury automakers that are entering the SUV market in hopes of capturing the attention of affluent buyers in markets such as China, Russia and the Middle East. Maserati will also be joining the fray with its Levante next year while Rolls-Royce is still mulling over adding an SUV to its lineup.
The Lamborghini Urus will be the brand’s first SUV since the LM002, which was discontinued in 1993.
