This morning we reported that the new Lamborghini SUV will be named the Urus. Hours later, Lambo released a teaser image (if you can call it that) of the SUV ahead of the scheduled Beijing Motor Show debut.
Showing almost nothing about the final design, the sketch composed of five lines confirms one thing. It looks close to the leaked photos we have already seen, despite revealing very little.
The SUV is rumored to be run by the same V10 that’s in the Lamborghini Gallardo, which makes 575 hp.
Check back for the full reveal of the Lamborghini SUV on Monday, though history indicates that something is likely to leak over the weekend.
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.
