Lamborghini has produced 15,000 units of Urus SUV
Lamborghini received mixed opinions when it announced a comeback to the SUV segment with Urus. It seemed like a radical change for the Italian brand that was synonymous with high-performance sports cars. However, the company proved that it remained true to its DNA when it showcased Urus in 2017 and subsequently made it available for sales in 2018. In the last three years, the Urus has turned out to be the best-selling vehicle for Lamborghini and continues to rack up substantial sales for the brand. Of 4,852 cars it sold between January and June 2021 (Lamborghini’s best H1 performance ever), 2,796 units were contributed by Urus. And the demand for the sporty SUV continues to remain strong, with the Italian carmaker achieving the milestone of manufacturing 15,000 units of Urus. This makes it the highest produced model in the company’s history in the shortest amount of time.
The 15,000th unit is destined for the British market and is decked in Grigio Keres Matt with Verde Scandal details. The interior of this unit, on the other hand, has Nero Ade/Verde Scandal theme.
Adding Urus to its stable has turned out to be a very profitable move for Lamborghini as the SUV helped double the brand’s sales in 2019. The reasons for such a high demand for Urus are plenty. It offers the practicality of an SUV but combines it with a razor-sharp design typically associated with supercars, especially from Lamborghini. Under the hood of the Urus is a 4.0-litre, V8, bi-turbo engine which puts out 641 bhp and 850 Nm of peak torque. All this power allows the SUV to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and attain a top speed of 305 km/h. This makes it one of the fastest SUVs in the world. And to complement its off-road capability, the SUV gets an all-wheel-drive system with six drive modes –Strada, Sport, Corsa, Neve, Terra, Sabbia, and Ego.
