Lamborghini Urus: Features and Design
This SUV, Lamborghini Urus comes with a cope-like roof-line. It comes with quite huge 24 inches wheels. These wheels are quite impressive and they are rated at P305/35R24 which is a relatively high tire side wall. This model is based on Volkswagen Group’s Modular Longitudinal Platform. Its front displays a clear SUV’s resemblance. It has sharp lines and a clear arrow form with large air intakes both left and right. Its headlights feature a Y-Shape. This model is aerodynamically refined with lines which pass from its hood over the roof to its rear. These characteristics are evidence of the unique quality of the Lamborghini Urus. Indeed, every single detail in this model has been reinterpreted. The head lights are horizontal and they feature complete LED technology. Its fog lights have been positioned below its huge air intakes. Between the fog lamps is the adaptive front spoiler. At its side, there is a narrow window which tapers sharply towards its rear. Together, there is a highly dynamic roofline and an extremely muscular rear wheel arch and both of them create a powerfully sporty appearance.
The Lamborghini Urus has completely redefined what other automakers term as sporty in the SUV segment. This is evident in its interior. Its occupants enjoy maximum comfort which almost feels as if they are wearing a perfectly fitting suit which is carefully fitted. With the Lamborghini Urus, there is no doubt that it is the ultimate sports car in its segment. In keeping with its lightweight design strategy, its entire interior is made with toughened carbon. Its designer possesses an exceptional competence in the use of carbon materials. This model’s centre console is particularly notable with its carbon fiber structure. This goes on with the entire interior and it is only partially designed with leather upholstered cushioning. There also single cushions used in cladding the four bucket seats. Furthermore, these four bucket seats have also been made out of artificial compound. Lamborghini Urus seating position is lower and flatter that all the other models in its segment.
It comes in a rich shimmering red color which brings in the ideal contrast from the various body parts made out of carbon fiber. A large part of its front spoiler and the entire side hills as well as the huge rear diffuser all vividly display their carbon fiber origin. It does not bear any exterior mirrors but rather is comes with aerodynamically optimized cameras which monitor traffic conditions behind the SUV. The camera images are then displayed on the two TFT screens which are placed in perfect positions on the left and right part of its cockpit. Its designers have indeed given the Urus great attention which is also evident even on the exhaust pipes. These four pipes have been carefully fitted in the chrome surrounds.
Lamborghini Urus: Engine Specs
The Lamborhini Urus key to its performance is in its drive. This model is likely to be propelled by the Audi derived 4.0 liter V8 twin turbo, or a hybrid variant or even a diesel V8 engine. It might also get the Bentley’s 4.0 liter V8 or the 6.5 liter V12 from the Aventador. It has been set to achieve around 600 horsepower. It comes with a permanent all wheel drive with traction control.
