Lamborghini Urus production still waiting for the green light

Article by Christian A., on September 15, 2014

Although many reports said that the Urus was green-lighted as Lamborghini’s new crossover/SUV, it appears that the vehicle is still under consideration. VW Group didn’t approve the production of the Urus yet but it is very close to take this decision and the vehicle will go on sale in 2017 or 2018.

The new Lamborghini Urus will take on other SUVs from other luxury carmakers such as Bentley and Rolls-Royce or Maserati. On of the main markets will be the United States, China and Russia.

Previewed in the concept form back in 2012 at the Auto China, the Urus was equipped with a V12 engine that delivered 600 hp (400 kW). The production version will use the MLB platform used by the next-generation Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen will build it alongside the Cayenne, VW Touareg and Audi Q7 in Slovakia.

Urus is a spiritual successor of the LM002 also known as Rambo Lambo, built in 1993 following a collapsed bid to produce military vehicles.
