Lamborghini is a name that invokes more respect than any other in the entire auto world. Few companies in the world have inched close to the marvels brought out by this Italian super-car maker, be it in terms of gritty inner mechanics, or even in terms of dazzling outer profiles. We'll admit, we were pumped more than usual to have heard about this upcoming release from this company. The manufacturer has left a smouldering trail in the super-car area, with machines such as the Gallardo and the Murcielago that will endure through time. But here we all are, quite awed and curious to hear that the company is tackling an all new area – the SUV front. Unveiled in the Beijing Auto Show way back in 2012, the machine has grabbed attention from the world over. It went into production a year later, and we are now closer than ever to its release.
As we flicked through images of the vehicle available on the web, we had to admit it to ourselves and to our readers as well: this company never fails when it comes to weaving a stunning exterior image out of any car. The Urus has a striking shape and overall alignment. Despite being an SUV, the vehicle radiates the same sporty aura that you'd find in the Gallardo. At the front, its face is sculpted in the same, hawkish manner as many others of the company's models. As a matter of fact, if you're standing linear in front of the vehicle, you'd probably mistake it for a sports vehicle rather than an SUV. The bonnet slides down gently and shapes the front region, while on either side, the crisp headlamps send out an aggressive message to its beholders. The air dam opens out wide on either side, before merging into a thin line at the centre. Gentle, refined lines glaze the hood, adding to the powerful effect of the front. When you take a look by the side, you can't help but feel that this SUV is as close as it gets to a sports car. The precise, streamlined shape makes it a flawless build. The wheel arches are gentle at the front, and more muscle is added to the rear. The hood tapers down to meet the rear, giving the entire profile a more pronounced effect. The rear has been beefed up and well toned. The lamps at the rear are razor edged thin, in a way that they almost blend into the entire background.
Coming to a more raw facet, we hear that the vehicle's engine would stray from the company's conventionally used V10 or V12 engines. The Urus comes with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, and we can't say exactly what its specifications are as of now. We hear that a more octane version known as the Urus Super will also be released, and this is supposedly going to come with a 5.2-litre V10 engine with 584bhp of power. We can be rest assured that safety and stability will be reinforced with a robust chassis, strong disc brakes and many reliable safety shields. We cannot, however, be too sure about the inner arrangement and comfort. We know for one that the cabin would follow suit after many of the company's race-styled cockpits, with an ergonomic edge, body hugging seats, plush upholstery, and wide headrests for the benefit of an eased, strain-free drive. We could chance a guess that there would also be a good audio system that comes along with some vital aids including USB, Aux-In and many others. All in all, a vehicle like this is sure to get the market steaming, and even though we've got a decent time to wait before this mean, lean machine is set loose on our roads, auto fans will be counting the days down.
