Lamborghini unvails the world's fastest SUV, begins delivery 2018

A closer look at Lamborghini's owner, the Volkswagen Group, brings into question whether the decision to release the Urus was financially sound. The 2019 Urus shares the platform of Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 but, with a major difference in terms of styling and performance.

Lamborghini unveiled the company's new SUV, the Urus, at its headquarters in Sant'Agata, Italy, on Monday. The Urus is said to offer easy driving in the city, maximum comfort during long journeys, thrilling super sports vehicle dynamics on the road and track, plus versatile off-road abilities in a range of environments.

According to Lamborghini, it can speed from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and topping out at 190 miles per hour.

The new Urus is powered by a 4.0 litre V8 twin turbo engine that comes with an impressive 650 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque.

In comparison, Lamborghini's Huracan Performante, which comes with a V10 engine, goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of nearly 202 miles per hour.

The all-new and highly anticipated 2019 Lamborghini Urus SUV is finally joining the Aventador and Huracán coupes in the exotic vehicle manufacturer's lineup, with the promise of benchmarking power, performance and driving dynamics, unparalleled design, luxury and daily usability. The dashboard has a Y-design which is oriented towards the driver. There is also a high end infotainment system and a Bang & Olfusen sound system.

The standard front DNA memory sport seats are fully electric, heated and 12-way adjustable while M18-way fully-electric front seats are an option, including features such as ventilation and massage. The rear has either a three-seat bench with Isofix points or an optional two-seat configuration.

But this super SUV Urus is a very different SUV.

The four-door Urus, named after the wild ancestors of the Spanish fighting bull, is meant to be more practical and family friendly than Lamborghini's typical high-powered sports cars.

Prices for the Urus, excluding taxes, start at £131,500, with the first customers due to receive their vehicles by spring 2018.
