Lamborghini Urus Will Be The Fastest SUV Around ‘Ring

Lamborghini’s upcoming Urus will be the fastest production SUV to ever lap the Nurburgring, the Italian firm says.

The record for the fastest SUV at the famous German racetrack is held by the previous-generation Porsche Cayenne Turbo S with a 7:59.74. However, Alfa Romeo claims the Stelvio Quadrifoglio will surpass the Cayenne and claim the crown.

Not dissuaded by the threat from its local foe, Lamborghini research and development chief Maurizio Reggiani believes the Urus will be faster.

“Our SUV will achieve more than 300 kph (187 mph) because it’s a Lamborghini. It’s our DNA. (We will) achieve the best lap time for an SUV on Nordschleife—this is a faster SUV,” he told Motor Authority.

Reggiani’s statement about the vehicle’s Nurburgring prospects counter those of Lamborghini Asia Pacific chief Andrea Baldi who suggested the Urus wouldn’t chase records at the circuit.

Yesterday, it was announced that the Urus will premiere on December 4 and according to reports, be powered by the VW Group’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with approximately 650 hp.

    Fighting talk, hoping the Alfa can beat a Lambo now

      Wouldn’t that be something!

      I don’t see it happening where the Lambo has 650HP though. That is unless Alfa decides to take a page out of Ferrari’s book…

        haha ye its unlikely, lets hope they do a stelvio ferrari edition

    The Alfa will be maybe slower because iris a V6 but for sure will be the prettier.

    It’s an audi-bentley-vw mix with a lambo batch… how lame (yeah, i know it has loads of power, but you might as well put any other vw-group badge on it)

    I’ll save my assessment until its formally unveiled

    The fastest SUV?

    That’s a good thing because I’ve been patiently waiting and saving for 20 years for an SUV that can claim that title.
    Praise Zeus..

    I think people who want to drive this kind of power should be required to take a special driving course. Again and these this machines get into the wrong hands of people who have no clue how to drive and cause fatal and property damage.

    lambo suv is odd idea,could be good or bad.
    but vw-audi-porsche-bentley based chasis,components,engines are not fit lambo.
    we like lambo because it is still unique and that urus ll not be %100 lambo as well as existing products.

    I highly doubt that.
