Santa is arriving early this year, and he’s bringing gifts from Italy. The actual showcasing of the car is forestalled by about one full minute of branding bullshit, but Lamborghini just presented its first SSUV (yes, Super SUV) and while it looks a hoover ship straight out of the Matrix, we would opt for a test drive first before ordering it and heading out to the Alps with the family. Because although the interior looks astonishing, it doesn’t look like there’s much legroom in the back. And that can be a problem, just as any Aston Martin Rapide owner will tell you.
Well, we hear you think: “screw the kids, I want to reach the Alps, fast,” and if that’s your mantra, you’re in for a treat. The Urus has a 4.0 litre V8 twin-turbo engine and rocks 650 brake horsepower with 850 Nm of torque. So yeah, the thing is fast. So fast, that it will go from 0-100 km/h in 3,6 seconds and will not stop until it reaches 305 km/h. That’s faster than a Cayenne Turbo, but it must be said, the Cayenne can hold four adults, easily.
