The Lamborghini Italian automaker has accustomed us with fast and luxurious supercars released each year. And because of that we all hope that Lamborghini will manufacture another futuristic and unique car which will meet our expectations regarding the future of the car industry. If in 2001 Lamborghini released its flagship dream car – the incredible Murcielago and after a short period of time it amazed us with the slightly smaller 2003 Gallardo and the limited edition of the Reventon, the Italian company will take our breath away with yet another supercar waiting to be released.
I am talking about the Lamborghini Urus, the new Lamborghini concept, considered to be the Murcielago’s replacement that will represent another page of the Lamborghini history. The Lamborghini Urus is a four–door concept car expected to be a fierce competitor for the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide. Its name will be “Urus” maintaining the Lamborghini tradition of naming their exquisite cars after famous bulls. This time the company went with Urus which is a type of ox-like cattle that went extinct hundreds of years ago.
The Lamborghini Urus will have a more aggressive design than the other Lamborgini models we are already “used to”. It will be manufactured entirely from carbon fiber, but there are some rumors as well saying that aluminum might be a choice for some of the components. The maximum height will be around 114 cm and the overall design will impress us with the well known Lamborghini doors that will be used for this model. The Urus will have a carbon fiber chassis and will feature a lot of active aerodynamics. The taillight will feature LEDs, the design being inspired by the new taillight designs especially created for the Reventon.
The engine of the Lamborghini Urus will be placed in front of the driver behind the front axle. It will be equipped with a four wheel drive system. The Lamborghini officials said that this supercar will have a 6.0 V12 engine which will produce 700 horsepower. As a result of all these improvements, the Lamborghini Urus will be able to compete against the fast Ferrari FX70 achieving a maximum speed of 300 km/h and being able to go from zero to 100 km/h in below 3.0 seconds. It’s possible that Audi will supply the direct injection, twin turbocharged engine and I can truly understand why they want to be part of this unbelievable project.
The production version of the Lamborghini Urus is expected to be limited to 3000 units a year. The company said that the new Lamborghini Urus will not be expensive either, the price tag being estimated at $300,000. The Lamborghini Urus combines lightweight and application principles of modern aerodynamics that allow it to become a fast and luxurious supercar. In fact, some people think that the Urus is a cross between a Chevrolet Corvette and a Camaro that resulted in a four door sedan model.
All the rumors and the secrets about this Lamborghini will disappear in September 2011 when this car will be the star of the 2011 Paris Auto Show. I think that once again we will be impressed with the hard work of the Lamborghini team and after the initial shock will wear off I’m sure that the car will be well received and the Lamborghini Company congratulated for its creativity and ability to make dreams come true no matter how impossible they seem in the beginning. And I also think that the very next minute car lovers will start thinking about buying a new amazing car!
