We’ve seen Porsche do it with their very successful Cayenne, now Lamborghini is joining the club of Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs). Just hours ago renders started leaking online of the new Lamborghini SUV named URUS. The vehicle will officially be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show in China just days from now. It is considered to be Lamborghini’s bid to to cash in its shares in the post profitable auto market sector of SUVs.
Auto Blog reports that the URUS is expected to share its platform with the next-generation Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7 and upcoming Bentley SUV, but is tipped to be about 100 kg (220 pounds) lighter than all of those. Power is expected to be provided by a 5.2-liter V10 that produces around 584 horsepower.
Lamborghini executives have said they have yet to win approval to build it, but given demand for big vehicles in China and the Middle East, that seems like a formality ahead of a 2017 arrival. We’ll keep you updated with all the juicy details of the unveiling ceremony of the new monster within a few days.
