MANILA: It’s been 5 years since the Lamborghini showcased the Urus in its concept form. And after years of teaser images, the Italian automaker has finally revealed the world’s fastest SUV at Lamborghini’s Sant Agata Bolognese headquarters. The 2019 Urus shares the platform of Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 but, with a major difference in terms of styling and performance. The manufacturer is aiming to double its production with 7000 cars per year and this will be achieved with the new SUV in the company’s lineup.

The design of the 2019 Urus reflects the true characteristics of a Lamborghini with a two-thirds body and one-third window ratio. The sharp creases, deep cuts, and swooping roofline altogether reflects that the SUV is a mean machine. The wheel options ranging from 21 to 23 inches can be fitted with Pirelli all-season or winter tyres that plays an important role in improving the overall performance of the SUV.

This is the first turbocharged engine produced by Lamborghini which is coupled to an eight-speed automatic gearbox with power being transmitted to all four wheels. Hitting the 100 kmph mark from naught takes just 3.6 seconds while the Urus is capable of reaching a top speed of 305 kmph.
