More news tonight from Lamborghini's big 50th anniversary shindig in Italy besides the insane Ecosta concept: the Lamborghini Urus SUV has apparently been confirmed for production. Exciting news for people everywhere with more money than taste.
Gosh, it's been a long time since Lamborghini gave the world a front-engined car. Technically, the last one was the monstrous LM002 SUV, but the last front-engine cars were the Espada and Jarama way back in the late 1970s.
The Urus looks awful, is basically the same car as the revolting Bentley EXP 9F and, seriously, do we really need yet another SUV masquerading as a supercar? All valid points, but the Urus has a saving grace. It’s a Lamborghini and all Lamborghinis are silly in a good way.
