Lamborghini has officially announced its first widely-produced SUV, called the Urus, which is slated to be the fastest of its kind in the world.
Lamborghini’s first SUV, the LM002, was released back in 1986 but less than 400 models were made available. The Urus marks the first time that the wider public will be able to get their hands on an SUV produced by the iconic sports car company.
The Urus will feature a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine with 650 horsepower, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and 627 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle can hit a top speed of 190 mph while reaching 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds.
“It is a true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, driving dynamics and emotion as well as drivable every day in a range of environments,” says Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali.
The Urus will arrive next spring and will go for approximately $200,000. A hybrid version will hit the market sometime in 2020.
