About the Urus

The Urus is the very practical, yet very fast SUV made by Lamborghini today. The Urus is the second SUV Lamborghini has ever made, the first being the LM002, but the body type is about the only thing the two trucks have in common.

The Lamborghini SUV is capable of delivering the kids to soccer practice and giving them a thrill on the way with the crazy acceleration from the power of the twin-turbo V8 going to all four wheels.

The Urus is the first Lamborghini ever to have a turbocharger, let alone two. Lamborghini typically makes naturally aspirated engines to maintain precise and quick throttle response.

The Urus is based on Volkswagen Group’s MLB Evo platform, so has a lot in common with the Audi lineup and the Porsche Macan.

Lamborghini Urus Trivia

The Urus is the only turbocharged Lamborghini.

The Urus is the first and only vehicle Lamborghini has sold with a turbocharged engine. Lamborghini does not like using turbocharger systems in their cars because of the reduced throttle response and dampened exhaust note. But the SUV required more low-end torque than the typical Lambo, so they made an exception.
