The Lamborghini Urus is the "Super SUV" you'll definitely want to drive

The Lamborghini Urus is the

The design of the 2019 Urus reflects the true characteristics of a Lamborghini with a two-thirds body and one-third window ratio.

In the battle to capture the attention of wealthy drivers, the new entrant will be up against the likes of Bentley's Bentayga, the Mercedes G-Class and footballers' favourite, the Porsche Cayenne. The manufacturer is aiming to double its production with 7000 cars per year and this will be achieved with the new SUV in the company's lineup. Direct competition for the Lamborghini Urus does not exist at the moment in the market, and the closest power SUV from BMW would be the X6 M. The sharp creases, deep cuts, and swooping roofline altogether reflects that the SUV is a mean machine. More importantly, with acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 12.8 seconds and a top speed of 305 km/h, the Lamborghini Urus becomes the fastest SUV on the planet, besting the marks set by the more powerful (707 hp) but much heavier Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Lamborghini has unveiled its first SUV in a quarter of a century with this - the Urus.

The Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine capable of up to 650 horsepower, supported by an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Apple Begins Sales Of Unlocked SIM-Free iPhone X In The US
Apple is now selling an unlocked version of its iPhone X that isn't tethered to a specific carrier like Verizon or AT&T . As 9to5Mac reported yesterday, Apple is now offering the option to buy the tenth-anniversary handset without a carrier.

In comparison, Lamborghini's Huracan Performante, which comes with a V10 engine, goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of nearly 202 miles per hour. The SUV also offers high practicality quotient with a boot space of 616-litre that can be further extended by folding the rear row.

The name Urus refers to a large bull which is an ancestor of domestic cattle, following Lamborghini's tradition of bovine-related names.

The Lamborghini Urus will arrive in Spring 2018, with prices starting at £131,500 ($200,000 USD). How serious the Italians are still with the dynamics is clear in the other dimensions: The Lambo SUV is just under 1.64 meters high and thus remains five centimeters flatter than a BMW X6 M. In addition, the Urus is a bit wider which should make it an absolute eye-catcher.
