Lamborghini Urus

Wince, Get Angry, Exhale, Shrug, Accept. These were the actions taken by many sports car lovers when their devoted automakers began falling off the wagon and building SUVs. It was only a short time ago that b>Lamborghini confirmed a production Estoque , but denied plans for building an SUV. Now, the Italian automaker is getting into bed with the brand that started it all to build an SUV of their own. According to British magazine, AutoExpress, Lamborghini is teaming up with fellow Volkswagen Group brand Porsche to develop their first SUV partly because they know it’s a market Ferrari can’t get into.

"Ferrari can’t follow into this market, because it has no links to SUVs at all. Lamborghini is entirely credible as an SUV maker, but it can’t do it alone. And as Porsche has shown it already knows how to do it, it makes sense to work together."

This means that the future Lamborghini SUV will be built on Porsche’s latest GT architecture which will also be used for the new generation Bentley models. Lamborghini will also use this platform in an attempt to make the Estoque a global model. Thankfully, the company’s supercars will remain in-house developed models with no help from outsiders. Good thing they cleared that up; wouldn’t want to think they were selling out completely.

It seems another great sports automaker is falling into the SUV craze. First Porsche developed the horrid Cayenne and now Lamborghini might be creating an SUV as well. Car and Driver’s German correspondent is reporting that Lamborghini is considering a hardcore SUV.

The machine is just a rumor, but if it does wind up on the planning table, reports indicate that it will be based on the Volkswagen Touareg or the Porsche Cayenne. We hope that because this is a Lamborghini, some sort of massive motor will live under the hood.

Lamborghini is also interested in entering the entry-level sports car segment, according to reports. The model would be underneath the Gallardo . This wouldn’t be the first time the Italian automaker has created an entry-level model, as its Urraco, Silhouette, and Jalpa of the 1970s and 1980s were in the same market.

We are sad to report that the Estoque concept sedan will not be produced. We loved this gorgeous machine and we had hoped to see it compete with the Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera .

The Italian super bar builder Lamborghini launched their flagship dream machine Murcielago back in 2001 and the slightly smaller Gallardo followed suit in 2003 and aside from a few special edition variations and the limited edition Reventon the automaker hasn’t come out with much else. However things are about to change as the Murcielago is being replaced by the all new Jota , a model that will be built on top of an all new carbon fiber chassis and utilizing more of the woven black stuff along with aluminum to create the skin under which a 6.0 Liter direct injected V12 that will put down around 700 HP.

Instead of numbing things down and introducing an entry level V10 version, sources say that Lamborghini is also working on an even more powerful model called Urus. The new car will be built from a modified version of the Jota and feature a full carbon fiber body. The Urus should be powered by a modified version of the Jota’s V12 engine except that it will be tuned to deliver up to 800 HP. The added output should bring the Lambos 0 to 60 MPH sprint to sub three second levels and will compete head to head with the Enzo ’s successor, the Ferrari FX70.

After many teasers (well, three actually), here’s the first image that reveals the rear of the future Lamborghini Urus, four-door concept that will make its world debut at the Paris Auto Show.

Don’t get to excited, is not official, is just a photoshop made by a very talented guy. He put together the three teaser images and obtained this. Well, we have to admit it looks interesting.

But we’ll need to wait for the Paris Show to begin to see if he is right or not!

I think that at this point the Lamborghini’s mystery concept from Paris is the most eagerly awaited model from this year’s show. And today the company added a new piece to the puzzle: the third teaser was released.

Although we can’t see much from the third image, we can tell that the future model will feature an aggressive design.

The mystery model was recently undisguised as being the Urus Concept , a four-door luxury concept that previews a new competitor for the Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide.

The mystery seems to be solved: Lamborghini’s concept for Paris Auto Show is a four-door concept, a preview version of a future competitor for the Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide . The name for it, according to a latest trade mark from Lamborghini, will be Urus. This is somewhat in line with Lambo’s tradition of giving its cars the names of famous bulls - Urus is a type of large ox-like cattle that went extinct a couple of hundred years ago.

The Urus’ engine will be mounted in front of the driver but behind the front axle. Like its more exotic siblings, it will also have four-wheel drive.

Lamborghini sources said that the production four-door car could have a smaller engine than the carmaker’s current smallest unit, the Gallardo’s 5.0-liter V-10. This would keep the car relatively short. Audi could supply the engine, which could be a direct-injection, twin turbocharged unit. Production version will be limited to 3000 units a year, same as the future Rapide.
