No matter how much we argue about it, the Lamborghini Urus is going to be the one for the history books. The Urus is unlike any other Lamborghini that rides way too low on the street. This raging bull overlooks all the cars on the street, for it is a super SUV from the Italian brand. I mean, everyone knows that the Urus is the first SUV from Lamborghini in a long time and they have downright done justice to it. If we were to take India as an example, Lamborghini brought the Urus in September 2018, sold 50 units in the same year and by 2021 sold 100 units of the super SUV despite the pandemic. Popular? Very.
For a common man, the Urus might look like a jacked-up Aventador, but we know that it shares the same platform (MLB Evo platform) as the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne. Although, Lamborghini has managed to make it lighter than the Bentley and Audi by using lots of carbon fibre reinforced polymer. Lamborghini has priced the Urus at an ex-showroom price of Rs. 3.10 crores and is brought to India in a CBU (Completely Built Unit) guise. The Urus is coming from the Lamborghini family and there is no way that it will be deprived of power. 630 BHP and 850 Nm of torque are produced by the petrol-guzzling 4.0-litre, V8 engine with twin turbos. The engine is mated to a slick 8-speed ZF torque converter automatic gearbox which delivers a silky-smooth ride experience. Unless it’s Gas, Gas, Gas!!!
Urus not only just came up with a super SUV segment but instead had other manufacturers follow its footsteps and introduce their own iterations of the super SUV, carving out a niche super SUV segment. Lamborghini in India was delivering one Urus per week, pre-pandemic as per an official and that tells you the notoriety it has gained in the Indian market. The Urus has a top speed of 305 km/h and can do the 0-100 km/h run in just 3.6 seconds. Though it won’t be useful in Mumbai traffic, it’s good to know that your car does such figures. The Urus also comes with a host of driving modes, which include, Strada, Sport, Corsa, Terra, Sabbia and Nevve. Well, people who will be buying the Urus will need to get a basic course in Italian to understand all these terminologies.
Lamborghini had even taken part in the Days of Speed event a few weeks back and out there showed the capabilities of the Urus. Days of Speed is an event where participants do high speed runs on ice. This was the first stint of the Italian brand and the Urus managed to achieve a top speed of 298 km/h on a slick surface with minimal traction. Again, most Urus users will keep the raging bull in a timid environment ( Mumbai traffic is not timid though) but it’s always good to know that your Rs. 3 crore car is more capable than you think. And unlike other Lamborghinis, the Urus and seat 4 comfortably and features a host of the latest features to keep the occupants satisfied.
