Lamborghini Urus launched in India at Rs 3 crore

Italian supercar maker Lamborghini today launched the Urus in India at Rs 3 crore, making it the costliest in its class in the country. The Urus is the first SUV from the Italian carmaker after the Lamborghini LM002, which was launched over 30 years back.

Based on the MLB Evo platform that also underpins other Volkswagen Group SUVs such as the Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7, the Urus utilises plenty of aluminium in its construction and has a claimed kerb weight of under 2.2 tonnes.

The Urus is so important for Lamborghini that they inaugurated an all-new production plant just for the SUV. The Lamborghini Urus is capable of accelerating to three figure mark in 3.6 seconds prior hitting the top speed of 305 kmph. The off-road capabilities of Urus are promised with a range of driving modes: Strada, Sport, Corsa, Sabbia (Sand), Terra (Off-Road) and Neve (Snow).

It may not look like it in the pictures, but the Urus is a big SUV - it measures in at well over five metres in length, and in terms of other dimensions, is nearly the same size as the Bentayga. Under the hood sits a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 breathing out a humble 650bhp of raw power at 6000rpm and 850Nm of twisting force between 2,250-4,500rpm channelled to all-four wheels via an eight-speed unit. The SUV could triple Lamborghini's sales in the domestic market.

The forthcoming SUV will be an essential player for the vehicle maker as far as the global sales are concerned. The company is also focusing on the network expansion in order to cater the increasing needs of the buyers.
