The Lamborghini Urus SUV revealed ahead of Dec 4 debut

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


Earlier this year, we broke the news that the production-spec Lamborghini Urus was set to be unveiled on December 4, 2017. That date is now established formally, thanks to the drip-feed of information that Lamborghini has set in gesture with a slew of teaser videos (embedded below). One of the videos that went online yesterday though, accidentally showed of the production form of the Lamborghini Urus while flaunting the various driving modes that the super-SUV will offer. Though the sight of the Urus’ production form creates courtesy of blurry imagery, fans can conclude that final design is closer in detail to that of the Centanario – unlike the Aventador encouraged form that the concept car showed off a few years back. As probable, the video has been taken down already but the fast fingers on the internet have grabbed the frame that reveals the production ready Urus.

For those living under a rock, the Lamborghini Urus is an upcoming super-SUV from the Italian marquee. Spiritual successor to the LM002 – Lamborghini’s earliest energy at the SUV genre back in the late 80s – the Urus shares the platform of its corporate brothers, the Porsche Cayenne and the Bentley Bentayga. The chiseled bonnet revealed in the teaser hides a twin-turbo V8 underneath which is expected to churn out over 650PS of power and 810Nm of torque. All the oily details will be confirmed on December 4, 2017 when Lamborghini formally reveals the Urus at a special event in Sant’Agata Bolognese. But until then here are the Lamborghini Urus teasers to keep you excited. Despite its supercar performance, Lamborghini is not using the Urus to chase Nurburgring lap records, instead pitching it as a premium family SUV. The Urus may not be a supercar, but it will be one of the most important models to join Lamborghini’s line-up in years, as it’s expected to double the company’s annual sales. Prices start at around $200,000, which isn’t far off the Lamborghini Huracan. Lamborghini is not the only supercar maker succumbing to the SUV bandwagon either, as Ferrari is already working on its own SUV (sorry, FUV) to rival the Urus.
