The Lamborghini Urus is a concept SUV soon to enter production in 2017 for the 2018 model year. Its name comes from the urus, the ancestor of modern domestic cattle, also known as the aurochs.
Unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, the Urus differs from modern Lamborghini cars in that it does not use Lamborghini's hallmark naturally aspirated V10 or V12 engines. Instead, it uses a newly developed 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 552 hp (412 kW) and 553 ft·lb (750 N·m). Lamborghini claims that they developed the engine themselves, eschewing the idea that it is simply a retuned Audi 4.0L V8 used across the Audi lineup and shared with Bentley in the Continental V8 (including the Bentley Continental GT V8) and Flying Spur V8.
The Urus SUV would be much lighter than some other SUVs due to the extensive usage of carbon fiber reinforced polymer, despite being based on the same platform as the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, and Volkswagen Touareg. The production Urus will feature a 4.0L Audi twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 584 hp (435 kW) and includes an electric motor with plug-in hybrid capability.
In September 2013, then-Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed the Urus's production, with an estimated 3,000 units produced per year. In 2017, current Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali stated that pre-production models would start rolling off the line in April.
The Lamborghini Urus is the sixth of the 10 original Class C cars and the seventh vehicle overall in Class C.
The Urus is faster than all the vehicles before it except for the KTM 1290 Super Duke R, which has a special boost ability that can allow it to reach a very high speed. Despite being slower, the Urus competes fairly well against the KTM 1290 Super Duke R since it doesn't possess the vehicle-specific downsides of that Motorcycle, such as an increased chance of skidding. However, the Urus is still an underperformer, only competing with the Ford Focus RS, which has a lower total top speed but which is agiler due to possessing better handling and faster acceleration. The Infiniti FX50 acts as an overall stats-upgrade to the Urus, especially since the FX50 possesses the fifth level of PRO upgrades while the Urus doesn't.
The Urus doesn't have any outstanding abilities, with only average or bad statistics when compared with nearby cars. The Urus' only competitive feature is its higher speed compared to the cars before it. The Urus has a wide drifting radius and poor handling.
The Urus is featured in the Career Mode.
As of the Motorcycles Update, the Urus costs 38,000 to purchase (originally 22,500, then 33,750), 267,250 to MAX and 73,173 to PRO. The Urus doesn't use any rare/legendary cards or Engine cards in its PRO upgrades.
