Lamborghini SUV To Debut December 4th

Lamborghini has confirmed plans to reveal its first-ever SUV model on December 4th. Named the Urus, the new SUV will appropriately bow at the Italian supercar-marker’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

Lambo teased the reveal with a new YouTube video, which ended showing off the silhouette of the new Urus with the tagline “the first super sport utility vehicle.” Well, it is correct that this is the first SUV Lamborghini has ever produced, but it isn’t exactly using unfamiliar components.

For Urus, Lambo is borrowing the Volkswagen Group platform that underpins the latest Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne SUVs. Allegedly Lamborghini engineers have modified the chassis, including swapping out convention materials in favor of more carbon fiber bits to meet super-car standards with an SUV body.

Power is expected to come from a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 with 650 horsepower. Later on a hybrid model of the Urus is expected as well.

The new Urus has been hotly debated since its concept debut back in 2012. Nonetheless, it’s coming and has been ushered in by a massive swell in SUV sales globally.

    Urus sounds like an STD..outside of that it should be interesting. Wish they would have packed a bigger engine in there.

    Can you really say "Super Sport Utility" without a V10? Such a small V8 shared with the rest of the group just doesn't quite seem enough to me..
