Somewhere deep within the cathedral that is the Italian car culture lives a high priest which goes by the name of Lamborghini.
He’s the beloved by his followers and has a place in the hearts of people all over the world. This priest however has a dark side.
Recently, he took up the idea of doing despicable things in a crypt below the holy house. The offspring of that crypt is called the Lamborghini Urus.
Maybe it’s a little premature to apply the hate and corruption feel to the Lamborghini Urus. Maybe we should take another look at some of the details we have on it.
To begin with, it’s the nasty one, Lamborghini expects to sell some 3000 units per year, thus effectively doubling the company’s production.
Officially, the SUV hasn’t been approved for production. However, let’s just say that if it were approved, it would go into production in 2017.
When If it goes into production, the Lambo SUV will be riding on the VW Group’s PL73 platform.
By that time, this particular platform will have been seen on the next generations of the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg.
Almost certainly, the same platform will underpin Bentley’s crypt spawn, the woeful EXP 9 F.
On the better news side of the story, Lamborghini’s Urus will likely be powered by a twin-turbo version of Audi’s 4.2 liter V8 engine with around 600 horsepower.
In order to put all those ponies to good use, Lamborghini is aiming for a final target weight of no more than 4400 lbs.
