Many years ago, we heard rumors about the first SUV model from Lamborghini. We had different opinions about that, but now almost all people are sure that this is the right move from Lamborghini. Almost every Company has at least one SUV model in the lineup, and from next year the same case will be with the famous Lamborghini. Finally, for the first time, 2018 Lamborghini Urus is tested on the streets. We’ve received some spy photos from the first testing, and despite the fact that the vehicle is heavily camouflaged, we will try to present you this vehicle as best as we can. According to Lamborghini, this newly SUV will be most fastest SUV model in the world. As we know, Porsche introduced its SUV model almost 14 years ago, and it was only a matter of time when we can expect more SUV models from supercars manufacturers.
2018 Lamborghini Urus Exterior
Some spy photos of this model are available, but despite that fact, we can’t tell you so much about the design. That this because the vehicle is covered with the camo in every part. However, some reliable rumors are available. According to spy shots, we can see a sharp and angular design from the outside. If we compare this prototype with the concept of Urus that we saw back in 2012, we can definitely notice some differences. First of all, it seems that the prototype is a bit larger and more massive. The front side of this model is quite phenomenal, and it looks like someone just moves the front fascia of some other Lambo model to this newly Urus. The headlights will have the same design as in the Aventador model, but they will be a bit smaller than in the mentioned model with “Y” shape.

We can also see quite big air intake in the front bumper, and they are also very similar to the Aventador. Also, the roof line of the prototype will have double hump feature. The rear side of this SUV will be probably the nicer rear side of an SUV. Here we can expect sharp shape “fancy” taillights. Beneath the taillights, we can notice four exhaust exits. Behind the front wheels of this vehicle, we can expect heat extractors that will be very useful for both, engine and braking system.
Lamborghini Urus 2018 Interior
The interior design of the recently developed 2018 Lamborghini Urus is still unknown segment. Unfortunately, we don’t have spy photos of the cabin. However, according to some reliable rumors, we can expect more comfort-orientated and very conventional interior design. However, just like in the every Lambo so far, this newly SUV model will feature sporty and flat-bottomed steering wheel. The seating position will be of course revised, and we can also expect wider center console and taller center stack.
As we know, the SUVs usually have a capability of accommodating up to five or even six or seven passengers. In the Urus, that is not the case, and this through will have seats only for four adult persons. Most of the interior components will be most likely made from carbon fiber in order to save some weight. We can also expect soft leather as well as Alcantara. Turn signals, wipers, and lights will be controlled through the multi-function steering wheel.
Engine and Performance
The Urus model that is based on the well-known MLB platform will be very powerful under the bonnet. We can expect a twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. This V8 twin-turbo engine will have a displacement of 4.0 liter. Also, the max power output of this engine will be 650 horsepower at 6,000 rpm (max 6,800 rpm) and torque of 630 ft-lb (850 Nm) at 2,250 rpm. From 0-60 mph / 0-100 km/h, this SUV beast goes for only 3.6 seconds, from 0-124 mph / 0-200 km/h it runs for 12.8 seconds. Top speed is 190 mph / 305 km/h. This car has fantastic weight/power ratio, only 7.4 pounds/hp or 3,38 kg/hp..
The new Lamborghini Urus 2018 will be most likely only available with the all-wheel-drive system and dual-clutch automatic transmission system. According to some rumors, we can expect the introduction of the new hybrid powertrain, but at this moment we don’t have some specific information about this engine. Thanks to the new drivetrain, this model will be the first turbocharged model in the history of Company as well as the first V-8-powered Lamborghini since 1998.
Price and Release date
The release date of this vehicle is expected for next year. We can expect it at the first three months of 2018. When it comes to prices, this model will most likely have a starting price of around $200.000.
