Lamborghini has unveiled its SUV Urus (named after Aurochs Bull) as a concept at 2012 Beijing motor show. Lamborghini will build model intended for sale which will be very similar to this prototype. It has an engine which develops 600 bhp and will feature four wheel drive system mated with double clutch automatic gearbox. It measures 4.99 meters in length, 1.66 meters in height and is 1.99 meters wider. It is longer than Porsche Cayenne and slightly heavier.
According to Lamborghini the final version of Urus will consume less fuel as compared to its rivals. This is achieved by making Urus lighter as some of the body parts are made of plastic reinforced with carbon fiber. Inside the SUV, there are many carbon fiber parts including seat structure and console running down the center of the cabin. To achieve reduced drag without limiting the ability to overcome obstacles, the suspensions are height adjustable and there is a spoiler on front of the bodywork which can be varied to allow more ground clearance or improve the aerodynamics.
Urus has no conventional mirrors, but instead there are cameras. It is equipped with LED headlights and 24 inch wheels. According to Lamborghini, the Urus is a model that can be used at home as a primary vehicle, unlike the other models in its current range. The first Lamborghini SUV was LM002, which was built between 1986 and 1992 selling 300 units worldwide.
