Havn’t done a car post in a while, but it’s worth a mention that Lamborghini has entered the
rich soccer mom SUV market and revealed its new 600hp 4X4 called the Urus at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show a few days ago.
Look at this puppy.
Ok so it’s clearly gonna be the meanest SUV out there, but i totally don’t get the squashed Range Rover Evoque look. The back and side windows are tiny. Looks out of proportion like some fat ass sat on the roof and squished it.
I’ll still take it though if Lambo wanna throw one my way…and pay for insurance and maintainance.
Anyways here’s details and a video below.
“The Urus is no shrinking violet: this four-door, four-seater crossover mixes supercar design cues, hoiked up several inches to mimic Land Rover stance set to the tune of Lambo bodywork. This is a squatter, more menacingly low-slung kind of off-roader, not a brick in the mould of Bentley’s controversial EXP9-F.
Lamborghini has fitted a 600bhp V12 powertrain, yet promises ‘the lowest CO2 figure of all comparable vehicles.’ Quite what we’re supposed to compare it to is anybody’s guess, but extensive use of carbonfibre composites will pare weight to reduce fuel consumption.” [Car Magazine]
It’s apparently hitting the market in 2015/2016 and will retail at around £150,000 which means it will probably set you back several million Rand.
And for those of you petrol heads who aren’t content with just pics, here’s some car porn for you.
