Lamborghini unveils new Urus SUV

Lamborghini unveils new Urus SUV

Lamborghini has unveiled its first SUV in a quarter of a century with this - the Urus.

Lamborghini unveiled the company's new SUV, the Urus, at its headquarters in Sant'Agata, Italy, on Monday.

Urus has a 650 horsepower, 626 lb. ft. of torque between 2250-4500 rpm and 4.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engine.

Even though it weighs just shy of 2,200kg, the Urus has the best power-to-weight ratio in the dynamic SUV segment, which means a 0-60mph time of 3.4 seconds and a scarcely believable top speed of 190mph.

The long-awaited SUV fills the gap in the automaker's lineup previously bereft of a utility vehicle. It also receives adaptive air suspension and carbon ceramic brakes.

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

Urus also features such new technologies for Lamborghini as a rear tailgate that is electrically operated via a switch on the driver's door, a button on the key, or a manual button on the tailgate itself.

Facebook launches app for young users
The move seems created to lure kids to the app before they try Facebook rival Snapchat, which is popular with teens. Messenger Kids is only available on iOS, but will launch on Amazon and Google app stores in the coming months.

Italian manufacturer Lamborghini has taken the covers off its first SUV since it stopped production of the LM002 in 1992.

John Giunta, a Lamborghini dealer in Sarasota, Florida said, "Now we live in a different world".

"The Lamborghini Urus is a visionary approach based on the infusion of Lamborghini DNA into the most versatile vehicle, the SUV", Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali said in a statement.

As well as the entire concept of Lamborghini making a hatchback, what's additionally heretical about the car's makeup is the engine position, which has been shifted to the front of the auto to make more room for seats and a boot.

"A bull is always aggressive, but I would like to give us a new philosophy toward the future: A bull can be gentle", he said previous year.

Following Lamborghini's tradition of bovine-related names, the Urus is named after a wild ancestor of domestic cattle. These are impressive performance figures for a large SUV.
