Lamborghini Urus releases in NZ

Lamborghini has released its first Super Sport Utility Vehicle to the New Zealand and Australian markets with the NZD$323,000 Lamborghini Urus

Tipping the scales at a bit under 2200kg, the four-wheel drive vehicle’s twin-turbo petrol-powered V8 engine through an eight-speed automatic transmission outputs 478kW (650hp)@6,000 rpm, providing 850Nm of torque between 2250 and 4500rpm.

According to the Urus manufacturer, acceleration from all the power under the hood is an impressive 3.6 seconds to 100km/h, with the SUV hitting 200km/h at the 12.8-second mark. Top speed is reported to be 305km/h, making it the fastest SUV available.

Helping minimise weight, the body, and frame of the Lamborghini Urus is constructed of what the company says is an integral lightweight body in aluminium composite design.

A number of systems can be selected depending on driving terrain, including snow and sand modes. An electromechanical active roll stabilisation system helps keep the Urus upright and is being used for the first time by Lamborghini.

As expected, when buying in this range of the market, the Urus comes with fully-integrated connectivity including DVD player and eight speaker sound system, although a 21-speaker top-end Bang & Olufsen sound system can be specified as an optional extra.
