The Lamborghini Urus is known for holding the title of fastest SUV in the world. However, since its launch in 2018, the Italian manufacturer’s SUV had not been entitled to improvements. That’s it, thing fixed with this more powerful and more efficient Lamborghini Urus Performante.
More powerful, lighter
For this Performance version of the Urus the power increases. It is then 666 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque that are delivered by the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. A power that allows it to go from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.3 seconds while the top speed is 306 km / h. The performance therefore increases but this is not enough to offer it the title of the fastest SUV in the world. The title then remains with the Aston Martin DBX707 and its 310 km/h.
In addition to increasing its power, the Urus also sees its performance improve due to a diet that allows it to lose 47 kg. On the menu of this diet, there are a lot of carbon fiber items. Enough carbon to make it the SUV that uses this material the most. If you like carbon fiber, then you can treat yourself to a Urus with exposed carbon on the hood, diffuser or roof. If you don’t like it, no problem, you can choose a configuration in which the carbon is covered with paint.
The 23-inch rims are said to be light, while a 22-inch forged steel rim is offered. In both sizes, Pirelli tires are mounted on the rims of the Lamborghini Urus Performante.
Aerodynamics is not the strong point of SUVs. However, the Lamborghini Urus Performante is making efforts to improve its air penetration. Thus, there are new elements such as the rear spoiler which improves downforce by 38%, the air outlet on the bonnet improves aerodynamic flow while the new air intakes divert the air from the wheels and avoid turbulence. .
The chassis is also lowered by 20mm while the tracks are widened by 16mm. A new Rally driving mode arrives on board the Urus Performante which is intended to be adapted to off-road driving but in the manner of a sporty Lamborghini.
This SUV crossed with a supercar is offered by the manufacturer from Sant’Agata Bolognese at a price of €218,487. A version that has recently become the fastest SUV on the mythical climb of Pikes Peak.
