The Urus is undoubtedly a Lamborghini, taking cues from the LM002 as well as the super sports cars that are fundamental to Lamborghini heritage like the Miura, Murciélago and Countach.

It comes with a three-spoke, multi-functional steering wheel and a TFT instrument cluster. It also gets active torque vectoring and multiple driving modes. Powering the SUV is a mammoth 4 litre V8 engine mated a 8-speed automatic transmission. Acceleration from 0 to 100kph is dealt with in a claimed 3.6sec, which is quicker than the original Murcielago, and top speed is pegged at 305kph, making the Urus the fastest SUV on the planet.
The Italian SUV comes with ANIMA drive selector which controls five driving modes - Strada, Sport, Corsa, Sabbia (sand), Terra (land), and Neve (snow). Efficient aerodynamics also contribute to the Urus' internal acoustics, improving ride comfort, reducing fuel consumption and emissions while a high downforce increases stability, safety and driving dynamics.
