The Lamborghini Urus super SUV has been unveiled at a function in Italy. It is the Italian automaker's second SUV after the LM002 of the 1980's and is the first time that the automaker has made a four-door, four-seater vehicle. It will GO into production in 2018 and go on sale later next year. This vehicle is named after a species of wild ox that predates modern day cattle.

This is the first time that Lamborghini has gone the turbo way and in style. The Urus debuts a new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 621bhp/850Nm of torque with power going to all four wheels via a new AWD system and an eight-speed AT. You get various driving modes (including one called Ego that you can customise to your specific tastes) and an air suspension as a part of the package.

If that wasn’t enough, the bovine name and chosen animal suits the nature of the Urus as this is a Lamborghini that attacks any terrain. This is the first time that Italian automaker has created a four-seater concept in the modern generation of its cars and in that typical Lamborghini style; it looks furious, beautiful and fast all at the same time.

The cabin shares many elements with the Huracan and Aventador-like the instrument cluster, steering wheel and stacked centre console but everything has been given a softer look to match the family oriented image of the car. You get electrically adjustable leather seats and multi-zone climate control in addition to other features that one would expect from a car in this segment and price category.

The Urus is India-bound and will play an important role in boosting the Italian automakers volumes games both in India and abroad. It is too early to speculate a launch date for India but we can hope for late 2018!
