lamborghini urus to bow in 2017

BRIC nation plutocrats, start saving your rubles and rupees. Lamborghini’s vulgar Urus SUV is set to bow in 2017, according to a report by Car and Driver, giving the new global elite a successor to the iconic LM002.

C/D reports that the Urus will bow after the upcoming Bentley SUV, with a sticker price between $150,000 and $2000,000. Power will come from Audi’s 4.0L twin-turbo V8. While the LM002 provides Lambo with some precedent to offer an SUV, Jack Baruth has brilliantly argued that the introduction of the Urus heralds the end of the brand’s reputation as the last word in unchecked hypermasculine antisocial motoring. Or perhaps, the start of it, depending on your tastes.

    It will end up being a turkey of an SUV, with no cargo space, 4 seats (useless), huge wheels and will never go off road. On the bright side, it might help Larmborghini's fuel economy average.

    I like it, as long as they don't offer a hybrid or EV model.

      I believe their plan is to offer a hybrid model, at least the early accounts said so.

    I'd like to make bad people ride in the back all day, over big rocks.
