Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali has revealed details about the power output of Lamborghini's much awaited Urus SUV.
Domenicali said that that the 2018 Lamborghini Urus will be powered by a 641bhp twin-turbo V8 as standard, and a plug-in hybrid model to will follow much later after the car's official launch.
The Italian brand which manufactures luxury supercars, sports cars and SUVs is looking to produce 1,000 units of the Urus in 2018 and 3,500 annually beginning 2019. The company's boss said that if demand proves to be higher, the production speed could increase as well.
The company's former CEO Stephan Winkelmann had previously said that the hybrid Urus would concentrate more on efficiency, while the internal combustion model is all about performance.
The Lamborghini Urus SUV will be underpinned by the same VW Group platform that is seen on the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga.
However, Lamborghini says its SUV's V8 is engineered in-house and won't utilise VW Group's new Porsche-developed twin-turbo V8 mill.
The Urus is expected to be revealed towards the end of 2017 at the company's factory in Sant' Agata. The new SUV will be manufactured there, beside the Huracan and the Aventador.
