The Lamborghini Urus, which is the Italian exotic car marque's second SUV after the classic LM002, was launched in India on 11 January 2018. The high-end model costs INR 3 crore (ex-showroom) and is the Sant'Agata Bolognese-based company's third model in India. Recently, a few units of the ultra-expensive SUV were spotted on the outskirts of Pune by Facebook-user Armaan Jain.
Deliveries of the Lamborghini Urus commenced in India this month. The company plans to build only 1,000 units of its 'Super SUV' in the current calendar year. It has allocated only 30 units to our market. Interestingly, the entire batch for 2018 was sold out within a week from launch. The dealerships are now accepting bookings for the vehicles that will be allocated to India in 2019. Andreas Baldi, General Manager, Lamborghini Asia-Pacific has said that the company aims to triple its sales in the Indian market on the back of the Urus.
Powering the Lamborghini Urus is a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 petrol engine that outputs a maximum power of 650 PS at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 850 Nm @ 2,500 - 4,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that works in tandem with a 4WD system. The exotic SUV is underpinned by the MLB-Evo platform.
The Lamborghini Urus can accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 305 km/h. The Super SUV offers 6 pre-programmed drive modes: Strada, Sport, Corsa, Neve (snow), Terra (off-road) and Sabbia (sand). EGO mode allows the user to customise the settings as per his requirements. The exotic model comes with carbon ceramic disc brakes at the front (440 mm x 40 mm) and rear (370 mm x 30 mm).
A plug-in hybrid variant of the Lamborghini Urus will be introduced at a later stage, but a diesel version isn't in the offing.
