Lamborghini Urus — remember the name. It’s the Italian supercar manufacturer’s second foray into the utility vehicle market and the object of much media attention leading up to its debut at the Beijing Auto Show next week.

Photos leaked onto the internet early today giving us the gory details about what sort of styling to expect from the newest fighting bull, but we’re still without verified specifications. It might make sense for the veritable V10 engine powering the 575-hp Gallardo to find a new home as the Urus’ heart, but it’s only a guess.

Yesterday we told you that Lamborghini’s SUV had an official name: Urus. Today we have more exciting news, as the photos of the car have just leaked. 

Czech site  leaked these pictures early on today, and  the images show off the Lamborghini Urus’ edgy character with its sharp lines that remind us of the Lamborghini Aventador. It’s also worth taking a look at that interior, which certainly brings the full Lamborghini package, including jet-fighter-like switches and displays.

We still don’t know what’s the power behind the Urus, but we hope to hear they’ve managed to put one of the brands famous V10s in there, presumably the V10 that’s in the Gallardo, making 575-hp.

The official reveal will come at Auto China in Beijing next week, so be sure to check back for more details on the Lamborghini Urus.

All the rumors surrounding the inevitable introduction to the Lamborghini SUV should come to an end at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show where a concept version of the exotic SUV is currently set to debut in late April 2012.

An Italian publication, Quattroruote, recently leaked what appears to be a photo of the Lamborghini SUV that is clearly being built to compete with the SUV offering from Bentley and Maserati.

Based on the photo in the publication (and it could just be a real good render) the Italian automaker will be incorporating the design from its Aventador on their SUV, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The Aventador is by far one of the finest Lamborghini designs in a while and if executed properly, could make the SUV look proper instead of out of proportion. The SUV is expected to be powered by the same V10 in the Gallardo with 575-hp, but a possible hybrid drivetrain is being, you guessed it, rumored with 700-hp and could be seen in 2015.

It would also make sense for Lamborghini to debut the vehicle in Beijing, where the Chinese market would welcome a Lamborghini SUV with open arms. Possibly much more than Europeans would at the Geneva Motor Show.
