Lamborghini has announced its new Urus SUV will debut at its Sant’ Agata headquarters on December 4.
The Urus is expected to make around 650 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged V8 – likely VW Group’s new 4.0-liter mill. It will be based on a lightened version of the automaker’s MLB architecture, which is also used in the Bentley Bentayga and the Audi Q7. Lamborghini is calling the Urus a “Super Sport Utility Vehicle,” so it’s assumed it will be the most performance-focused and fastest crossover-SUV-thing on the market when it launches later this year.
The Urus has been photographed and caught on video on numerous occasions, with the most recent spy photos making it clear what the SUV will look like. It takes on a coupe shape with a rearward sloping roofline, a high beltline and narrow windows, while typical Lamborghini-look creases make an appearance on the hood and sides. Altogether, we’d say it looks very similar to the Urus Concept.
Lamborghini will make around 1,000 Urus SUVs in its first model year, but will ramp up production to a planned maximum of around 3,500 units a year – equivalent to Lamborghini’s current annual production. We may know more about the production Urus as its December debut date approaches.
