Lamborghini Urus to vie in super-luxury crossover segment in 2017

Article by Anita Panait, on September 16, 2013

The quarter-million dollar super-luxury crossover segment may have a new entry in 2017 with the arrival of the Lamborghini Urus. The Urus -- expected to be underpinned by a Volkswagen Group platform -- is targeting consumers in the United States and China. Lamborghini had mulled a four-seat car but is thought to have decided on a crossover based on volume projections.

Lamborghini is currently showing the last version of the redesigned Gallardo sports car, called Squadra Corse, at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Its production version is expected to be underpinned by a platform that also underpins the new-generation Audi R8, with sales to commence early 2014. This fall, the carmaker will also launch to the market the new Aventador LP700-4, a roadster version of the carbon fiber supercar.

Three examples of an Aventador offshoot are currently being built by Lamborghini to celebrate its 50th anniversary, with sales to start also this fall. The Veneno is powered by a mid-mounted V-12 engine that provides up to 750hp, propelling the car from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and helping it reach a top speed of 221 mph. Lamborghini is currently awaiting for the go-signal to build a crossover based on the Urus concept.
