Lamborghini Urus - new supercar placed above the future Jota
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.
