Lamborghini set out to build a vehicle that would have enthusiasts of the brand holding on to the edges of their seats with anticipation. The Urus was one of those cars that stirred the emotions in the most rock-hard individuals, causing a slight rise in the heart rate. It's the brand's gift to the automotive world and here are ten things you didn't know about the Urus.
1. Without departure from its origins, it's a Lambo through and through
The interior of the Urus is state of the art when it comes to the technological innovations it comes equipped with. The team thought it smart to include three TFT screens to allow one for gauges and instruments and let the other two go for touchscreens sued in the HVAC and infotainment systems. A virtual keyboard onboard recognizes handwriting as well. The switchgear on the interior still takes its inspiration from a fighter et but the sports details and luxury are every bit as prolific.
2. The Lamborghini Urus allows no grey area
You'll either love the Urus or you'll hate it. As much as it is loved by enthusiasts, it is also hated by others who simply aren't into SUV coupe styles. There doesn't seem to be much middle ground. Even if the styling isn't your cup of tea it's worth a sit in the cabin to make sure you won't change your mind.
3. The Lambo Urus is an SSUV
The acronym stands for Super Sports Utility Vehicle. This is what leads us to believe that those who are strongly against an SUV crossover may feel differently once they experience the difference of a Super Sports Utility Vehicle. Lamborghini truly takes this vehicle a few notches above a standard SUV.
4. The Lamborghini Urus made history
It's totally true that the Urus will find a significant place in the history of the brand because it set firsts. It's the first turbocharged car that the brand has ever produced. The rest of the herd of Lambos are naturally aspirated.
5. It comes with six Italian driving modes
The Lambo Urus is engineered with six different driving modes that improve its safety on the road in all types of weather. The modes are translated from Italian to mean Sand, Snow, Soil/Dirt if you want to take it off the road and it also offers Track, Street and Sport for when you're feeling giddy.
6. It's the first Lambo with DAT
The Urus is the first Lamborghini that comes equipped with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, top view parking cam, high beam assist, a head-up display, wireless charging, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
7. Passenger space is adaptable
You can get the Urus in a couple different configurations. Customers are given the options to spect the car to fit their needs. It has the capacity to be ordered to seat either four or five. It's up to you.
8. The Urus is one fast SUV
The Lamborghini Urus is a fast SUV that achieves a top speed of 190 miles per hour. Not too bad for an SUV crossover eh? If sport and speed is a reason for hating SUVs, Lamborghini may have just taken away the excuse that some use for being haters.
9. The engine is powerful
The engine is a technological wonder that is ultra powerful. The output of the V8 in this vehicle is a massive 650 horsepower with 627 lb-ft of torque. It's matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
10. The Urus sets a record for largest brake rotors
Carbon ceramic brake rotors that measure 14.6 inches in the rear and 17.3 inches in the front are the largest that have ever been used for a production car. The Urus is a car that just keeps making firsts in the automotive industry. We have to note that it also features 21-inch wheels to complement those big brakes. If it seems at all like the new Lamborghini Urus is a monster, in some ways it is. It's massive and it commands respect on the road. The URUS is not a race car, but it has the capacity to beat some of the lower end sports cars in the long run. It's built with a strong constitution but it doesn't sacrifice an ounce of luxury or style in the process.
