It’s no LM002, but the upcoming Lamborghini Urus is still pretty darn big. How big? Big enough to have a chuckle at when you see the testing video.
Left is up, backwards is starboard, and nothing makes sense to me anymore because apparently the Lamborghini Urus SUV is not only still coming to life, but it’s going to be available as a plug-in hybrid.
Following the introduction of Bentley’s new super-luxury Bentayga SUV at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, executives at Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz are now licking their lips at plans of pushing their SUVs into the same segment.
The alleged “new Lamborghini SUV” idea that’s been raising eyebrows since the Urus concept came out in 2012 is finally officially confirmed by the company. What exactly it will look like remains an exciting and terrifying mystery but it’s slated to come out, for real, in 2018.
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.
These pictures, published in the appropriately-titled Italian magazine Quattroruote, claim to reveal the new Lamborghini SUV concept. Aventador styling on a tall Audi platform? Maybe. One thing's for certain, this ain't no rough-and-ready LM002.
