The Lamborghini Urus not to paw the earth until 2017

The Lamborghini Urus was the biggest of the raging bulls to come out of the village of Sant’agata Bolognese. The SUV concept was showcased at the Beijing Motor Show earlier this year.
The big bull has also graced the stage at the ongoing Los Angeles Motor Show. Lamborghini however is undecided whether to give the Urus a life or not.
Speaking to Autoexpress.co.uk, Mr. Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said that the Urus will not hit the roads until 2017 and there are possibilities that it may never see the light of the day. He said: “The Urus isn’t an immediate priority and won’t happen until 2017 at the earliest, if the board decides to sign it off.”
Mr. Winkelmann added that, “To be honest, we don’t need it right now, as we have plenty of new cars available that are selling well and will continue to sell well.”
If at all the board approves the Urus for production, the SUV will derive its power from an Audi engine and will be stationed on VW’s MLB (Modular Longitudinal Matrix) platform which is also going to underpin the next gen Audi Q7.
Lamborghini is right now focusing on the supercars and when asked about the possibility of a Superleggera or Super Veloce version of the Aventador, the CEO replied that he has few ideas for the car and the Aventador always has more to offer.
