Lamborghini Urus Four-Door Concept Coming To Paris, Fittingly Named After A Big German Cow

The lid on the mysterious Lamborghini teaser images has cracked open a bit wider today, and what we see inside is the Lamborghini Urus, a four-door, front-engined, super saloon to compete against the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide. The engine is unknown at this point, but sources say it lies behind the front wheels and turns an all-wheel-drive system. But for us, the big story is the name "Urus," a Latin word with Germanic origins used to describe a very large type of cattle prevalent in Europe until their extinction in 1627. So basically — it's German for "big cow." How fitting of a name is that for a big cow of a four-door car from the now-German-by-ownership Lamborghini? We'll be there live at the Paris Motor Show to see it revealed, assuming dirty leakers don't break the embargo ahead of time.
