The Lamborghini Urus is a concept SUV designed by Lamborghini unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show on 23 April 2012. The name comes from the name of the wild ancestors of domestic cattle, also known as aurochs.
The production Urus will differ from the concept by not using Lamborghini's hallmark naturally aspirated V10 or V12 engines. Instead, Lamborghini has developed a new 4.0L twin-turbo V8. Lamborghini claims this engine is solely used by Lamborghini, eschewing the idea it is simply a retuned version of Audi's 4.0L V8 that is used across the Audi lineup, and shared with Bentley in their new Bentayga SUV, Continental V8 coupe and Flying Spur V8 sedan.
The Lamborghini Urus SUV concept would be much lighter than some other SUVs because of extensive usage of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, although it is based on the same platform as the Audi Q7, Bentley EXP 9 F, Porsche Cayenne, and Volkswagen Touareg. The Urus Super SUV will feature a 584 bhp (435 kW; 592 PS) turbocharged 5.2 liter V10 engine by Audi that includes an electric motor with plug-in capability. The Urus has a front-engine, all-wheel-drive layout. The Urus is approximately 16 feet (4.9 m) long, but only about 5.5 feet (1.7 m) high. Top Speed of 205 mph (328 kph). Lamborghini is still considering this a concept car and are making decisions about tire size and engine type.
