The Lamborghini brand has been the first name in luxury sports cars since it was founded in 1963. The company has had a long history for manufacturing some of the most iconic and luxurious vehicles of its class. Most well-known in recent years for its wildly popular line of sports cars, Lamborghinis are not typically the most family-friendly option. Well, you may start to see more and more families sporting Lamborghinis thanks to the new Lamborghini Urus, the first ever SUV for sale from the Lamborghini brand.
“The Lamborghini Urus is a visionary approach based on the infusion of Lamborghini DNA into the most versatile vehicle, the SUV. The Urus elevates the SUV to a level not previously possible, the Super SUV. It is a true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, driving dynamics and emotion as well as drivable every day in a range of environments,” says Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The Urus fits perfectly within the Lamborghini family as a high performance car. It is the culmination of intensive development and passionate skill to create a new breed of bull: a Super SUV that transcends the boundaries of expectations and opens the door to new possibilities, for both our brand and our customers.”
This exciting new vehicle has been fitted with what Domenicali refers to as “Lamborghini DNA”. The most interesting thing about the Urus is the fact that it is a family-friendly daily-driver type of vehicle, that happens to be sporting some of the most powerful and innovative pieces of equipment in the automobile industry. The idea of a sports-car-SUV-crossover is something dreams are made of. Drivers all over the world now can experience what Lamborghini describes as a vehicle with unmatched design, performance, and driving emotion.
