About Lamborghini Urus
Lamborghini Urus is the world’s first sports crossover with the soul of a super sports car and the functions of an SUV. Equipped with a twin-turbocharged 4-liter V8 engine with a power of 650 horsepower. and. The torque of 850 Nm provides acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and allows a top speed of 305 km/h. Excellent design, amazing power, and unforgettable driving emotion are the result of years of technological evolution inherent in Lamborghini’s DNA.
- Urus is also a bull
In the past few decades, Lamborghini has traditionally named its model after the most ferocious bull in Spanish bullfighting. However, Urus deviates a bit from tradition. Not only because this is the first crossover in the brand’s history.
The Latin word Urus (the name Aurochs was also found) is one of the distant ancestors of modern cattle. In addition, from the outside, these wild animals are most similar to the Spanish bullfights bred in the past 500 years. So although the new Lamborghini is not named after a specific bullfighting bull, it has a direct relationship with animals.
- He’s not that small
At first glance, the Urus may appear to be a dilapidated little car, but this is a visual technique-in fact, it is not that small. Its length exceeds 5 m (5112 mm), its width exceeds 2 m (2016 mm), and its wheelbase exceeds 3 m (3003 mm). Therefore, the volume of the luggage compartment is impressive-616 liters.
If the backrests of a pair of sports seats in the second row are folded up, the practical volume can be increased to 1,596 liters. However, it is still a bit unusual to appreciate Lamborghini’s trunk.
- He’s faster than a Bentley Bentayga
Urus is built on the MLB Evo platform, which powers the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. Aluminum is widely used in the multi-link suspension design of this chassis, and most of the Urus body is also made of winged metal. However, these decisions have little effect on the weight of the crossover-Rambo weighs 2,200 kg.
- Urus is powered by twin engine
However, the heavy objects did not interfere with the power of the car. Urus is powered by a new 4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 gasoline engine, which produces 650 horsepower. And 850 Nm torque (can be used in the range of 2250-4500 rpm). With an 8-speed “auto”, the device can accelerate the Urus to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and can accelerate it to a maximum of 305 km/h. For comparison, the gasoline version of the Bentley Bentay crossover equipped with a 608-horsepower 6-liter W12 engine won the first “hundred” in 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 301 km/h.
Urus has a complete drive. The traction between the axles is distributed by the Torsen differential. In addition, this crossover is also equipped with an adaptive air suspension with adjustable ride height and active roll suppression, powered by an optional 48-volt system. Finally, Xinqi is equipped with carbon-ceramic brakes with 10 and 6 piston calipers at the front and rear.
In addition, traditionally all Lamborghini has six driving modes available to Urus drivers: Strada (road), Sport (sports), Corsa (racing), Sabbio (sand), Terre (ground), and Neve (snow). Based on the selected control electronics, select the best settings for the operation of the power unit, gearbox, suspension, and steering system.
- Urus will be the most massive Lamborghini ever
Especially for the production of Urus, Lamborghini’s Santa Agata Bolognese plant has built a new assembly shop equipped with the most modern assembly robots. In the production line of this Italian manufacturer, Urus will be the first model to minimize manual labor during assembly.
In fact, this technology will make Urus the largest Lamborghini model in history. Next year, about 1,000 of these cars will be produced, and in another year, production will increase to 3,500. Therefore, Urus sales will be exactly half of the total number of cars that Lamborghini plans to produce in a few years.
