• If Lamborghini Really Wants People to Off-Road The Urus, It Should Look Like This

Or maybe the Urus would make a prime candidate for a Dakar-style conversion

Back when Lamborghini was still teasing the Urus, we were served with a video that showcased the SUV’s Sabbia mode. By the way, Sabbia is the Italian word for sand. For the video, Lamborghini took a pre-production to Dubai, where it was let loose to raise clouds of dust to our entertainment.

Since then, the Urus has established itself a top seller in Lambo’s range and we are willing to bet that no customer took it off the beaten path. Not with the intent to genuinely punish it, that it. Which might change if this digitally rendered off-road kit gets made.

In case you did not recognize the style yet, know that these CGIs belong to Abimelec Arellano, aka Abimelec Design, whose work has been featured numerous times here on topspeed.com.

In the artist’s own words, the jacked-up Urus is joining some of his previous work, including an Arctic Trucks Rolls-Royce Cullinan and a Bentley Bentayga.

In an odd way, this is almost like completing the Holy Trinity of luxury-cars-turned-off-roaders.

Anyway, the fiery body color you see was inspired by the Countach. The same goes for the tan leather interior and bronze wheels, while the muscular fender flares are a signature of Lambo’s first SUV, the LM002. Come to think of it, this thing could easily be included in the next Forza Horizon 4 DLC.

The best thing about the kit is that if it ever gets turned into a real upgrade made to fit the Urus, it does not really need the addition of a power upgrade. The Urus is already high on oomph thanks to a twin-turbo V-8 good for 641 horsepower and 626 pound-feet of twist. It is also capable of 0-60 mph sprints ticked off in a tad over three seconds and top speeds of 190 mph, so all the potential needed to punish off-road trails is undoubtedly there.

Between you and me, with Lamborghini already offering the track-only Urus ST-X, seeing a Dakar-ready build cannot sound too far-fetched, can it? I mean, a lot can happen in a year...

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
