The new crossover Lamborghini Urus was unveiled publicly on December 4, 2019, 5 years after the debut of the prototype Lamborghini Urus Concept in the spring of 2012 at an auto show in Beijing. In our review of Lamborghini Urus in 2019-2020 – photos and videos, the price and specifications, the technical characteristics of a chic crossover record holder, the fastest and fastest SUV in the world today. Sales Lamborghini Urus in Russia will start in the spring of 2020 at a price of 15.2 million rubles, the cost of a hurricane crossover premium Lambo with a petrol 650-horsepower petrol V8 twin-turbo in America will be from 200,000 dollars, and the UK from 131500 pounds, in Europe from 171429 euros, and in China from 3130000 yuan.
Production of new items will begin in the very beginning of 2020 in the city of Sant-Agata-Bolognese, native to the company Lamborghini . At the same time, most of the units, units and components for the new Urus crossover will be delivered to Italy from Slovakia from the Volkswagen Bratislava Plant, where the production of the new Volkswagen Touareg and New Audi Q7 couplers is made , as well as the car kits for the two other brothers – Porsche Cayenne and Bentley Bentayga .
With the beginning of the life cycle of the new crossover Urus, Lamborghini’s management hopes to increase the number of cars produced to an impressive 7,000 cars per year (in 2016, 3,457 sports cars were produced). Thus, the new Lamborghini Urus will occupy half of the production area of the plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese, by the way, from 80,000 to 160,000 m2 over the past two years. The Italians took the Lamborghini Urus production very seriously, starting in the shortest time not only the paint shop and assembly workshop, but also the storage of components, but also the test track.
Plans for 2020 for the release of new items have not yet been announced, but in advance it can be said that this year, no more than 2000 crossovers will leave the factory gates. Since 2020, Lamborghini hopes to sell at least 3,500 copies per year. It is interesting that the Russian quota (only 100 cars) for Lamborghini Urus in 2020 is almost sold out, and by the end of December 2019, pre-orders are being accepted with car deliveries to customers in the fall of next year.
The crossover Urus in the serial version does not look as elegant as the Urus Concept presented 5 years ago. The car looks more brutal and aggressive, as befits a true sports car, a record among the most expensive crossovers. The tour, the primitive bull (just so literally translates the name of the model into Russian) has already been called the coolest crossover in the world. And in all categories:
- First, the most dynamic – from 0 to 100 km in 3.6 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h in 12.8 seconds.
- Secondly, the fastest is the maximum speed of 305 km / h.
- Third, the most powerful – the V8 twin-turbo generates 650 forces (Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with 717-strong in the calculation does not take).
- Fourth, the Italian crossover with the most extraordinary appearance and body more like a sports car than a crossover.
- Fifth, the Italian novelty with the highest price, ranging from 15.2 to 20 million rubles.
It only remains to add that Lamborghini Urus is a true exclusive, and even with the maximum possible circulation of 3,500 copies a year, one can not see this work of modern engineering with everyone who wishes. Bentley Bentayga on the background of the Italian crossover already seems extras with 5586 cars, sold only in 2016.
We will not make a verbal portrait of the Italian crossover with the genes of a supercar, but focus our readers’ attention on the perfect novelty technique. Moreover, the photos and videos posted in the review will help to reveal the phenomenal design of the exterior of the body of the model and the interior design of the crossover available to order with both 5 and 4 local salons. In the first case in the second row there is a three-seater sofa, and in the second there are two separate armchairs with electric adjustment.
- The exterior dimensions of the body of the Lamborghini Urus 2019-2020 are 5112 mm in length, 2016 mm in width, 1638 mm in height, with 3003 mm of wheelbase and ground clearance, capable of varying within 158-248 mm.
The Urus model is built on the MLB Evo platform, which, by the way, is based on the mass of Volkswagen AG vehicles from New Audi A4 , New Audi A7 , New Audi A8 (light truck version) and New Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne to the new generation Volkswagen Touareg, the premiere which is scheduled for January 2020. Suspension of all wheels, of course, independent (two levers in front and multi-link from the rear) with pneumatic supports, electronically controlled shock absorbers and active stabilizers of lateral stability. In the presence of permanent all-wheel drive (center differential Torsen), carbon-ceramic brakes, gas turbocharged 8-cylinder engine, 8 automatic transmission from the company ZF.
Only with an eye for this technical information, you can safely attribute the new Lamborghini Urus to the unique cars for the Italian company. This is the first in 29 years Lambo with the “eight”, as well as the first in 24 years car from Sant’Agata Bolognese with a four-door body and front-engine layout.
The engine’s location in front of the hood is the result of the MLB Evo platform. But the presence of the 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo (the New Audi V8 4.0 engine with a pair of turbochargers) is an opportunity to provide the crossover a less attractive price in the Chinese market (in the Middle Kingdom, engines over 4000 cm3 are subject to exorbitant taxes ). So, making an explanation we suggest to get acquainted with the full technical features of the novelty.
Specifications Lamborghini Urus
Suspension of all wheels is independent, pneumatic with adaptive electronically controlled shock absorbers and steering wheel of the rear wheels (angle of rotation up to 3 degrees), the drive is permanent full in company with the Torsen center differential, which by default transmits 40% traction to the front wheels and 60% rear (if necessary and with an eye on the features of the pavement, up to 70% of the torque can be transmitted to the front axle, and up to 87% can be transmitted to the rear axle), and also with an active rear differential capable of changing the thrust vector.
Complement the all-wheel drive transmission of 6 modes of motion, output to the original Tamburo selector (drum), located on the central tunnel: Strada (road), Sport (sport), Corsa (race), Neve (snow), Sabbia (sand) and Terra (ground) , but … only if there is an additional off-road package that provides Urus with the ability to confidently move not only along the asphalt (compact bumpers providing more solid corners of entry and exit).
