egendary car manufacturer Lamborghini
unveiled the stunning new Urus SUV
concept car at the prestigious Auto China
show in Beijing in 2012.
In keeping with the tradition of the peerless brand,
the Urus is named after a bull. Also known as
aurochs, the powerful Spanish-bred urus is believed
to be a wild ancestor of modern bulls.
That tamed wildness is evident in the Lamborghini
of the same name. The beautifully designed body of
the concept car is in impressive carbon fibre. The
powerful Urus will have an impressive 600-hp
output, but due to sophisticated engineering and
cutting edge lightweight construction, will achieve
the lowest carbon dioxide emissions in its class.
The elegant four-seater Urus is 4955mm long,
1996
mm wide and 1660mm high. Lamborghini
want the luxurious car to be "for everyday use, for
the family, for leisure pursuits with friends".
It will certainly fit the bill for all of those
requirements – but also borrows from its proud
ancestry to offer thrills when they’re wanted!
