Lamborghini Urus SUV Makes Its Way to India, All Sold Out For 2018
The first-ever SUV from Lamborghini shares its platform with Porsche Cayenne.
Lamborghini’s first-ever SUV has now entered the Indian market with a price tag of Rs 3 crore (ex-showroom). The company claims that all orders for 2018 have been booked, and anyone else willing to shell out the money will have to wait.
The Lamborghini Urus made its global debut last month, and the brand has been quick to bring the SUV to our shores, showing the importance of India as a market for the Italian automobile maker.
The team at Lamborghini slogged it out for four years to design the Urus, which is also the company’s first SUV and is claimed to be the fastest in its segment as well.
Urus shares its platform with other SUVs from the Volkswagen Group, ie, Porsche Cayenne and Bentley Bentayga, among others. Staying true to its ‘supercar’ heritage, Lamborghini Urus gets a coupe-styled design, but offers more space than its regular features.
This seven-seater SUV packs a 4-litre, eight cylinder engine that throws 650 HP and 850 Nm torque.
It weighs around 2,200 kilograms and offers an 85-litre fuel tank for long drives. And all this power ensures that the Urus can go from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.6 seconds. It gets a 616-litre boot space, rear-wheel steering system, and comes packed with 440 mm front disc brakes.
The power in tow is well complemented inside with use of carbon fibre for the dashboard and plush leather seats, giving you the luxury in a super-SUV.
The fact that Lamborghini has already managed to sell off all the units of Urus shows that the market for high-end supercars in India has evolved in recent times.
