In September previous year, Lamborghini has set the bar rather high by promising that the Urus will become the SUV the fastest in history to cross the famous circuit of Nürburgring.

The Lamborghini Urus is not the first SUV from the Italian Sant'Agata Bolognese vehicle producer - there was the brutal LM002 as well.

The Lamborghini Urus has a top speed of 189.5 miles per hour (305 km/h) and a 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) time of just 3.6 seconds.

In direct competition with the Bentley Bentayga and the versions most exclusive in the Porsche Cayenne, the Urus uses a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter developing 650 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

The Urus comes with all the driving tech you'd expect in a luxury SUV as well, including level 2 autonomy and an long list of safety features.

Other features on the new Urus include adaptive air suspension and active roll stabilization, plus carbon ceramic brakes.

Prices for the Urus start from £131,500, with the first deliveries taking place in Spring 2018. There is also a high end infotainment system and a Bang & Olfusen sound system.

Between 1986 and 1993, Lamborghini built a 4×4 soberly baptized LM002.

Lieberman had more praise than criticism for the vehicle, concluding that, "If you like Lamborghini, you're going to love the Urus".

According to IHS Markit, global sales for crossovers and SUVs have increased to 26.47 million units a year ago, from just 7.93 million units a decade earlier. "We are spot on time with the right product", he said. The Urus will more than double the company's annual output of fewer than 3,500 units sold worldwide, according to Lamborghini.

"The Urus fits perfectly within the Lamborghini family as a high performance vehicle".

"We are entering new markets that will be very important for the future of our growth".

As previously mentioned, Lamborghini has a reputation for creating stylish cars and even though Urus is an SUV, it still ships with a Lamborghini trademark design. Last year Lamborghini sold a mere 188 units in China, compared with 303 in the United Kingdom, a market 90% smaller.
