Spy Pics: Lamborghini Urus Spotted Testing Its Limits In The Green Hell

Written By:

Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini's very first SUV, the Urus is all set to be officially revealed later this year. Ahead of that, the SUV has been spotted testing in Nurburgring.

The Urus was spotted testing with a heavily camouflaged livery and appears to be the final production version of the SUV. The four-wheel-drive SUV is tested to its limits in the iconic Nurburgring race track.

The Lamborghini Urus is based on the Volkswagen Group's platform which also underpins the Bentley Bentayga and the Audi Q7.

By taking a closer look at the spy shots, the SUV is tested to its limits. The lean angles are extreme for an SUV. The suspension setup is put to extreme tests in the high-speed corners of the green hell.

The Urus will draw power from a twin-turbo V8 engine. Lamborghini had already revealed the power figures, and the engine is good for 641bhp. The engine sits over the front axles as opposed to the rear engine setup on the supercars.

Lamborghini is planning to produce around 1,000 units of Urus in 2018. And then increase the production to 3,500 units at the beginning of 2019. The company also stated that, if the demand is higher, the production will be boosted accordingly.

The production of the Urus is expected to commence by this summer. Lamborghini also plans to launch a plug-in hybrid variant to the SUV. The Urus will be manufactured at company's Sant' Agata factory.
