Lamborghini has confirmed the third model of the series. It’s about the serial version of the Urus SUV, scheduled to debut in 2017.
At the 50 year anniversary event of the Lamborghini, the Italian brand’s officials have agreed that the time has come to announce the future member of the series. The rumors are confirmed, the third component of the family will be the first SUV in the modern history of the Italians from Lamborghini – the Urus. It is said that the model will be the cheapest one of the Sant’Agata Bolognese producer.
The serial version was announced by Rupert Stadler, the Audi boss himself. The release date has been set for 2017, but there are several aspects that are not yet clear. For example, the SUV production, estimated to be higher than the current Gallardo and Aventador, is expected to be made in another plant, because the one in Sant’Agata Bolognese will become too small.
The design of the final version is expected to be inspired by the Urus concept which was presented last year at the Beijing Motor Show. Unfortunately, the official information currently stops here, but it is strongly believed that the future Lamborghini Urus will be built on the same platform that will host the next generation of Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg models, and the production version of the Bentley EXP 9F concept.
Also, we can expect to find an ultra-lightweight construction, a combination of aluminium and carbon fiber on the list of technical trivia, as well as a gasoline engine of 600 hp – most likely, we will be dealing with a revised version of the recently launched four liters V8 twin-turbo, but the possibility of seeing this engine on the SUV series is unlikely. Moreover, seeing a hybrid version or a second engine is not excluded.
Because four years separate us from the final model, it is possible that the engineers to completely change the engine and even to choose a new solution.
