The unveiling of the Lamborghini Urus is considered as one of the automotive milestones achieve this year. Not only is the four-door Urus the company’s first sports utility vehicle, it is also regarded as the first super SUV in the world. It looks great and stunning in this four-door configuration, which is essential if you are trying to mix super performance and practicality.
Nonetheless, there are customers who would like their Urus super SUV to look more aggressive, with a styling that fits its super performance nature. Thus, some are trying to imagine the Urus as a coupe-styled SUV – with two doors and a longer bonnet. But if that is somewhat hard to imagine, an automotive graphic artist who goes by the professional moniker X-Tomi Design has just created a rendering of a coupe-styled Urus. It was a simple re-imagination of Urus four-door as a two-door, but it looks astonishing.
At first glance, the visual tweaks that X-Tomi implemented on the Lamborghini Urus entailed the removal of the two rear doors that allow access to the rear passenger cabin of the SUV. Furthermore, the bonnet of the Urus was seemingly made longer. Other than these, it appears that everything from the base of the A-pillar and the tip of the bonnet where it meets the windshield have been shifted to the rear.
There were no other apparent changes on the front end as everything from the grille, bumper, front fascia, air vents and headlights remained as they are. These implemented changes resulted to a coupe-styled Lamborghini Urus that seems sportier, more aggressive, with its looks better matching the super performance nature of the SUV.
Among the advantages gained if the Urus is offered as a coupe-SUV is the high possibility that it might better appeal to people who want a more aggressive and sportier crossover. However, the fact that its 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine delivers 650 hp (484 kW) of max output and 627 lb.-ft. (850 Nm) of torque places the Urus next to none among SUVs in terms of aggressiveness and sportiness.
Of course, there would some disadvantages if the Urus is offered as a coupe-SUV. The most glaring of these is that access to the rear passenger cabin would become difficult. With four doors, access to any part of the cabin is easier. The driver and the front passenger enter through the front doors, while rear passengers enter the rear compartment move in through the rear doors. But the removal of the rear doors means those accessing the rear passengers could only do so by entering through the front passenger door.
When Lamborghini unveiled the new Urus, it was clear that the sports car maker created a vehicle that merges supercar levels of performance and the practicality of an SUV. Thus, four doors suit its intended character the most.
