Lamborghini Urus SUV Concept Leaked Before Beijing Debut

Just yesterday we brought you a teaser on Lamborghini’s latest concept, which was set to be introduced at next week’s Beijing Auto Show. At the time, we speculated that it was either a sedan or an SUV, based solely on the sketch we’d been provided.

Now we know that it was Lamborghini’s Urus SUV concept, seen here in all its off-road glory. Details are still pending, but Car and Driver is reporting the Urus will share a platform with other Volkswagen Group SUVs, including the VW Touareg, the Audi Q7, the Porsche Cayenne and likely even Bentley’s upcoming SUV.

Powertrain options are still a matter of speculation, but either the V-10 currently used in the Lamborghini Gallardo or the twin-turbo V-8 from the current Audi S8 seem like likely options. Car and Driver thinks that a hybrid variant is possible as well, but we’re less than convinced that Lamborghini would go that particular route.

Inside, expect seating for four, not five passengers. Lamborghini’s familiar center-stack toggle switches make an appearance, as does the company’s proprietary Forged Composite material, originally developed in conjunction with golf club manufacturer Callaway.

We promise to bring you more information on Lamborghini’s Urus concept just as soon as it’s available.

  1. I kinda like it! Love the rear more than the front.

  2. Well, Lamborghini doesn't exactly have a history of attractive or particularly useful SUV's - So it appears they won't break any new ground with this one...

  3. not the Lamborghini am use to I'll have to wait for the live images to decide my final verdict.

  4. This will be definite big hit for Lamborghini/Boeing and especially Volkswagen. It is such a stand-out vehicle.

  5. Like the design, it has lots of lambo characteristics and is obviously a lambo... but the fact that it's an suv and not a supercar makes it not feel like one

  6. Honestly, I have lost some respect for laborghini. They have always been one to veer away from all of the trends. No they are somewhat giving into the trendy high-performance SUV scene by following BMW, Audi, Porshe, and from what I have heard, even Maserati. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I am a little disappointed.

  7. Exactly, badge w-h-o-r-e-s now have a Lamborghini to buy their soccer mom wives. I understand the financial decision behind this but something has been lost. The uniqueness, the exclusivity is dead. Lamborghini like Porsche before it has sold out.

  8. throw Bentley into that aswell although that monstrosity they designed is a laughing stock. oh and Jaguar will follow too. its simple maths unfortunately. The SUV market is just too lucrative not to be in. there are alot of people still flushed with cash and they now have families so this is how they tap into that market !

  9. the new lambo suv Urus have next lotus`s range front
    side of a usual cars and wider end as the old suv the LM002
    i wouldn`t buy it.
    it`s not special enough to be a lambo.
