Lamborghini Urus (2018–)
Lammborghini launches Urus
The name Urus is derived from the world of bulls. The Urus, also known as Aurochs, is one of the large, wild ancestors of domestic cattle. The Spanish fighting bull, as bred for the past 500 years, is still very close to the Urus in its appearance.
The Lamborghini Urus sports a new front-mounted, 4.0 litre petrol V8 twin-turbo aluminum engine. Delivering 650PS at 6000 rpm, maximum 6800 rpm and a maximum torque of 850 Nm at 2,250-4,500 rpm. Has a curb weight lower than 2200kg.
The Urus accelerates from 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 12.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 305km/h. Braking is no less impressive: the Urus decelerates from 100 km/h to 0 in
The Urus features an automatic eight-speed gearbox. The compact and efficient electrohydraulically controlled planetary gearbox is tuned to provide very short low gear ratios and longer high gears. A highly efficient slip-controlled converter lock-up clutch and specially developed torque converter guarantee a highly responsive engine, with an exceptionally powerful starting ratio for exciting acceleration.
The Lamborghini Urus’ four-wheel drive system delivers safe, highly-responsive driving dynamics
on every road and surface, in all weather. A Torsen central self-locking differential provides
maximum control and agility in all driving conditions, particularly off-road.
Torque is split 40/60 to the independent front/rear axle as standard, with a dynamic maximum torque of 70% to the front or 87% to the rear, enhancing traction to the axle with higher ground friction.
The Urus features active torque vectoring via a rear differential, enabling propulsive power to be
instantly distributed to each individual wheel for enhanced traction, depending on the driving
mode, driving style and the road grip.
The Lamborghini Urus adopts the rear-wheel steering introduced in the Aventador S over the
whole speed range. The rear steering angle varies up to +/- 3.0 degrees, according to vehicle
speed and driving mode selected
Depending on the driving mode selected via the Tamburo, the V8 engine has been calibrated to
vary the sound and feel of the Urus, from the quietest and most comfortable low-frequency
sounds in STRADA mode, to a sportier and more exciting Lamborghini sound and feedback in
CORSA. A specially-developed exhaust system also customizes the sound output dependent on
engine speed: at high acceleration, the Urus produces a more guttural, sporty sound and chassis
The interior’s design and finish echoes that of the exterior in terms of unmistakable Lamborghini design, colorways and individuality. Inside, the Urus is as clearly a Lamborghini as it is from outside, with a sporty yet luxurious design and finish.
A multi-function, three-spoke steering wheel incorporates a vibration damper to enhance comfort in all driving conditions. Multifunction switches are intuitively located on the steering wheel to control the Lamborghini Infotainment System (LIS), including car set-up, media, telephone and navigation.
A fully-digital TFT display shows the Urus’ main information in an animated 3D representation
and is customizable by the driver.
The standard front DNA memory sport seats are fully electric, heated and 12-way adjustable.
More luxurious, 18-way fully-electric front seats are available as an option, including features
such as ventilation and massage.
The rear bench seat as standard comes with a movable and folding seat back and ISOFIX fixings. Providing an extremely comfortable five-seat configuration, the ability to fold and move the rear seat offers maximum versatility and increased luggage capacity for daily use.
The rear bench seat can be lowered to substantially extend the trunk space from 616 litres to 1596 litres. As an option in conjunction with the fully-electric front seats, a more exclusive two-seat rear layout can be specified providing exceptional rear passenger comfort while reflecting the Urus’ sporty character.
The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Urus in Spring 2018 at £131,500.00 (suggested retail price, taxes excluded).
