Excited! We are talking about the Lamborghini Urus SUV. The Italian carmaker which produces some of the best exotic sports cars in the world had showcased the SUV at the Beijing Motor Show earlier this year.
The Urus SUV which had received great applause from auto enthusiasts is still in concept stage and far away from production reality. However, latest reports are that the car will debut in 2016 and carry a price tag of £135,000 (approx Rs 1.1 Crore) thereby, making it the cheapest Lamborghini car on sale. Though, the price could be around Rs 2 crore in India when launched.
Currently, the carmaker sells two models - Gallardo and Aventador which are priced at Rs 2 and 3.7 crore respectively in India. Meanwhile, sports car makers have been turning to SUVs recently with the Porsche Cayenne being best example. Premium British carmaker Aston Martin is also looking to enter the premium SUV race in a few years with the Lagonda.
Coming back to the Urus, sources say the SUV will be powered by a healthy 4.0 litre V8 motor that produces a max. power output of 600 bhp and a max. torque figure of 480 lb ft. Lamborghini is expecting to sell 3,000 units of the Urus annually. The Urus will be taking on the likes of BMW X6, Porsche Cayenne etc when launched.
