The Lamborghini Urus crossover is being spied twice this week.
The photos you see here on the front of the urus are courtesy of our spy photography agency while the image of the rear of the car was captured by a Pro-Street player, a Danish car rental website.
The overall design of the Urus production seems to remain true form and the overall shape of the original concept car. The production vehicle looks like it will include the larger groups of headlights, a drastically different front fascia design and installation of a deeper rear bumper.
The prototype was spotted in Denmark by a reader of local website Pro-Street which has more of the shots. It reveals for the first time the shape of the Urus in production trim, and as was expected the vehicle is a bit bulkier than the rakish concept. It also appears to have lost the concept’s pumped fenders, although at least the Countach-style wheel arches remain.
Lamborghini has done a good job of hiding its prototypes for the Urus. Development is almost complete as the first pre-production examples will be rolling off the line at Lamborghini’s plant in northern Italy as early as April. Deliveries won’t start until 2018, however.
The Urus is based on the the MLB platform of fellow Volkswagen Group SUVs like the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. However, to extract the performance one would expect of a Lamborghini, engineers are thought to have used lighter carbon fiber in place of some of the steel and aluminum sections.
Under the hood is expected to be a double-V-8 turbocharged. It is likely to be a 4.0-liter design shared with other VW Group brands. The output should be between 500 and 600 horses. The launch model over time was joined by a hybrid.
Lamborghini has confirmed that there will be ways to handle off-road conditions, such as sand, snow, gravel, etc. The Lamborghini boss hinted that there will be a similarly shaped ego in custom mode introduced in Aventador S.
And in case you are asked, Urus is taken in a form of the name of the Uros, ancient wild ancestor of modern cattle.
Stay tuned for updates as development continues.
