The Lamborghini Urus is an SUV manufactured by Italian car manufacturer Lamborghini. It was unveiled on 4 December 2017 and will be put on the market for the 2018 model year. The name comes from the Urus, the ancestor of modern domestic cattle, also known as the aurochs.
The Lamborghini Urus concept was unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show on 23 April 2012. Later, the SUV was also shown at Pebble Beach in 2012. Powered by a 5.2 L V10 engine of the Gallardo, the concept SUV had a maximum power output of 600 PS (592 hp; 441 kW) and was accompanied with an all-wheel drive system. The Urus was reported to have the lowest carbon emissions as compared to its competitors (i.e. the Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and the Audi Q7). The Urus was conceived as a perfect daily driver unlike the other offerings from the brand. The exterior design of the SUV had heavy influence from the company's V12 flagship, the Aventador and had razor-sharp lines along with finely executed surfaces. The production version of the SUV was revealed in 2017 with major changes done to the exterior and featuring a different powertrain than that of the concept.
The Lamborghini Urus does not use Lamborghini's hallmark of naturally aspirated V10 (as used in the concept) or V12 engines. Instead, Lamborghini has developed a new 641 hp (478 kW) 4.0 L twin-turbo V8. Lamborghini claims this engine is solely used by Lamborghini, eschewing the idea that it is simply a re-tuned version of Audi's 4.0L V8 that has its application in some of the Audi S and RS models along with the A8 and shared with Bentley in the Continental V8 and the Flying Spur V8. The engine is assembled at a Volkswagen plant in Hungary and is shipped to Lamborghini to be put inside the SUV.
The Lamborghini Urus is much lighter than most of its competitors (i.e the Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and Rolls Royce Cullinan) at less than 2,200 kg (4,850 lbs) as quoted by the manufacturer mainly because of the extensive usage of carbon fibre reinforced polymer, although it is based on the same platform as the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, and Volkswagen Touareg. The engine is rated at a maximum power output of 478 kW (641 hp; 650 PS) at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 850 N⋅m (627 lb⋅ft) at 2,250–4,500 rpm. The Urus has a front-engine, all-wheel-drive layout, and a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h), making it one of the world's fastest production SUVs. The Urus can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds and 0–200 km/h (124 mph) in 12.8 seconds. Lamborghini has developed the world's largest set of carbon ceramic brakes for the Urus, with 440 mm (17.32 in) rotors in the front and 370 mm (14.57 in) rotors in the rear using ten-piston callipers at the front and six-piston callipers at the rear. The all-wheel drive system of the Urus under normal driving sends 40 percent of the engine's torque to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels uses torque vectoring to send as much as 70 percent to the front or 87 percent to the rear when necessary. The SUV also features rear-wheel steering and an air suspension system that can provide a maximum of 250 mm (9.8 in) of ground clearance for off-road use. The SUV will be available with an optional off-road package, which includes modified front and rear bumpers that are better suited to the task. The Urus, like all of Lamborghini's current offerings, will feature a selection of driving modes, which adapt the suspension to improve the car's performance in various driving conditions. The Lamborghini Urus will feature Strada (street), Sport, Corsa (track), Terra (dirt), Sabbia (sand), and Neve (snow) driving modes, with the latter three possibly only available on the off-road package offered. The Urus has a base price of US$200,000 and will have a seating capacity of four to five people.
On 4 December 2017, the car was unveiled at Lamborghini's Sant'Agata Bolognese headquarters, making it the brand's first SUV since the LM002. Production began in February 2018 and Lamborghini plans to build 1,000 units in the first year of production, and 3,500 in 2019. Lamborghini has expanded their factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy, to produce the Urus.
Lamborghini had trademarked the name "Urus" before the introduction of the Lamborghini Estoque at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, and automotive news blogs Jalopnik and Autoblog believed that the name would be applied to what was eventually found to be the Estoque.

The lid on the mysterious Lamborghini teaser images has cracked open a bit wider today, and what we see inside is the Lamborghini Urukakflfls, a four-door, front-engined, super saloon to compete against the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide.
Seems the trademark claim Lamborghini placed on the name "Urus" may have been a red herring and the real name of the four-door super saloon set to debut at the Paris Motor Show may be the Lamborghini Estoque.
