The fashion for SUVs has made most of the traditional sports car manufacturers realize the need to offer “high-legged” and high-performance models in turn. The specialized preparers have also given it their all to bring an even more radical touch to these production models. This is the case of this Lamborghini Urus, specially prepared by Mansory and MTM.
High Performance SUV (SSUV), the Lamborghini Urus occupies a niche where so far compete few builders. Porsche is there with its Cayenne Turbo S, Land Rover with its Range Rover Sport SVR, Aston Martin with its DBX, and Ferrari will soon make its grand arrival with a Purosangue which we have been waiting for for several years. But as if his 650 horsepower 4.0 V8 and 850 Nm of torque was not enough, Urus passed on the billiards German preparers MTM and Mansory, who brought him aesthetic and mechanical modifications even more radical…
From the outside, the already very tortured style of the original SUV is transformed into a brol of carbon additions, protruding edges and huge rims. Extremely bodybuilder, it is delivered under a black tint which gives him very expressive airs! the triple exhaust rear surrounded by many diffusers, as well as specific sills visually lower its center of gravity. So much so that in the end we don’t even feel like we’re dealing with an SUV. More to one very stocky sporty !
Under the hood, the original twin-turbo engine was not replaced, but reprogrammed to such an extent that it is today capable of developing…1,001 horsepower ! It is the same output power as the Bugatti Veyron at the time, which was considered the fastest car in the world. Except that the hyper sports car had a W16, here it is a V8. We do not currently know the performance that he is able to tickle, but one thing is certain, they will be much more important than the standard ones, which don’t have to be ashamed. To give you an idea, in « normal » configuration and with only 650 horsepower, it is capable of shooting down a 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and reach a maximum speed of 306 km/h…
