Bright Yellow Lamborghini Urus Spotted In The Austrian Alps

One of the perks of owning a super SUV with an exotic badge and a twin turbo V8 like the Urus is that, on paper, you can get the best of both worlds.

In other words, whereas an Aventador or a Huracan wouldn’t be ideal for hauling your things to a ski resort, the Urus will do that in its stride – which was Lamborghini’s reasoning behind deciding to build it in the first place.

This particular Urus painted in Giallo Auge was spotted by Tom8501 in Finkenberg, Austria, on the second day of Christmas. Since the Urus isn’t expected to reach its first customers until the Spring of 2018, we guess it might have been some Lambo/VW Group exec’s ride.

Given the conditions, we reckon that whoever was behind the wheel got the chance to sample Neve (Snow), one of the Urus’ six driving modes, which modulates the ESP and other vehicle systems for optimum traction in the snow, and also raises the chassis in order to improve ground clearance.

On dry tarmac, the 650 PS (641 HP) twin-turbo V8 will help the Urus accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.6 seconds and all the way to 305 km/h (190 mph).

    An Urus spotted in the snow… clean, shinning and bright, ready to pose for the pics… c’mon!!

    • Six_Tymes

      the rear isn’t, its filthy dirty from driving

      • Carmelo Van Cabboi
        • The side don’t look to clean for me, if you compare to other car that is parked nearby some of them aren’t that dirty either.

          • Carmelo Van Cabboi

            But only me on wintertime, driving for kms through country street, maybe with snow, get a dirty car? It looks like they just put out of the trunk this thing for pics

        • Six_Tymes

          the R E A R is dirty. oh sorry, you cant read or you might not know what a rear end is on a vehicle.

          • Carmelo Van Cabboi

            No sorry, I only understand the wheels are shinning…
            If there is the snow they probably are in some high mountains or Alps, probably they drove for hundred of kms leaving the car fresh and clean… but maybe not because this Audi can fly!!!!

          • Shtekeris

            As an owner of pretty much the same yellow tone car, I can approve – this is exactly how it looks in dirty winter

          • Silimarina

            Or maybe the car was washed at a gas station/car wash near the hotel.

      • CarCzarDesigner

        The rear looks dirty to me.

    • darkfire219

      It’s dirty & has visible road grime shellacked on that pretty yellow finish, but it isn’t filthy

  • Six_Tymes

    cant say it isn’t unique. I hope to see one in person

  • WTF

    the more i see this car in real world pics it looks alot like an Aztek and pretty unattractive. It has that Panamera, and Bentayga appeal it gets a pass for being ugly as hell because of its brand….

  • Seriously? “we guess it might have been some Lambo/VW Group exec’s ride.”. I bet this is a factory demonstration for Journalist. Keep an eye on the license and we see if any journalist wrote an article about it.

  • Bo Hanan

    Does anyone else see a yellow Ford Escape from this angle?

  • Ary Wisesa

    Cute … I like it.. I bet it would also look good in white, stone grey, bright/harlequin green, alpine blue or chili red. With its edgy design, bright colors would accentuate its lines more and make it look more sculpted. Can’t wait to see it in metal.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Genuinely ugly. It will be bought by pimps and similar fauna and soon tuned with untasteful mods. Yet, it will sell. The world is now full of people with more money than taste.

    • Ary Wisesa

      Well, at least those people can actually buy these things that you called ugly. And whenever they drive the actual Urus in London or New York or Moscow streets, other can only be envious and silently wish they could afford it too. Unfortunately, reality bites: they must deal with mortgage, credit cars bills, and trying to stretch coupons. Meanwhile, the owners of Urus will surely smile broadly and feel good about themselves. Btw, I think many people would be very happy and give you full support if you could back up your claim of having better taste than anyone else by bringing up your tasteful car. What would it be? A Rolls Royce Phantom? A Bentley Continental? Or a Ferrari La Ferrari? Just can’t wait to see your ride.

      • Jds65

        lmao straight, people treat what others buy like if affects their life.If they like something they gonna buy it.They also buy it to shit on other people cause others can’t afford it.I see nothing wrong with that lol.

        • Ary Wisesa

          Yes, I agree with you. I prefer to be happy to see what other people achieve and motivate myself to do better, so hopefully I can make my dreams reality too, instead of insulting people and spitting out my envy and jealousy. Those bad attitudes will never help me achieve my dreams, only leaves scars in my soul. I don’t wanna die in envy and jealousy. Life is too short for it. 🙂

          • Jds65

            Exactly how i see it.

          • Marty

            So, you are not allowed to remark on bad taste if it belongs to people with more money than you?

            What kind of subservient attitude is that?

            Some of us might see greater goals in life than the strive for riches. For example a tasteful choice in cars no matter the size of your wallet 🙂

          • Ary Wisesa

            No, it’s not about money at all. And I believe I don’t have any inferiority complex or subservient attitudes. It’s simply about respecting other people’s taste and preference. No matter who they are and regardless to their wallet size. Everyone deserve equal measure of respects.

            Taste is highly subjective. And there is no right or wrong in anybody’s taste. Likewise, there’s no grades in taste. There is no higher or lower taste. Who are we to judge people’s preference?

            The key is respecting each other, no matter how hard it is to understand other’s taste.

          • Wandering_Spirit

            Exactly. The lack of taste is the problem, because leads to similar designs. Also, there is very little left of Lamborghini in the recent models, Urus aside. The money part is not an issue. Glad somebody got it.

      • Wandering_Spirit

        A Bentley Continental would be much better, in retrospective…
        I am glad that you give me and the audience a glimpse of your psyche. Just don’t forget that all those ill-conceived thoughts are a figment of your mind, and you should not project them on others, thinking we’re all like you. Don’t confuse opinions for envy. Had it been a Pagani, maybe i’d have benevolently wished to be in owners’ shoes. Not in this case. But you’re free to keep giving your liver a hard time in refusing to accept other people’s opinions on cars. After all, it’s your liver 🙂

      • exeptor

        He has the right to say whatever he wants on any subject he wants. If he thinks that people who buy this car are tastless it is perfectly fine. I see no envy and jealously – just opinion. I saw his opinion on other cars with the same or even higher price tag and trust me he was not envy at all. I see the problem like this – it has nothing to do with other people but you – you like the car and you dream of having one (or at least the money for it). He says you lack taste and this hurts you in general. It is that simple and it is not a bad thing. I for example like Bugatti Veyron and many time people made jokes about that and it also happened that they say I am tasteless and I only care of the price, power and speed which is something I have to ashamed of. I don’t really care – if I have the money I will buy a Veyron.

    • LWOAP

      Even the bitter cold temperatures outside can’t stop all the asshurt I’m feeling from this comment.

      • Wandering_Spirit

        No no, it’s really the type of customer i envisage for this type of vehicle. Basketball players, football players, artists of a certain type etc. It will sell a lot among specific customer groups, less among those who like understated substance or a more classic vehicle. And, i find it of very poor taste for a Lamborghini. I have already explained that people should not project their behavioral issues (and in your case your own pains in whatever part of the body you feel it) on others, based on their own behavior. If you give this interpretation of my statement, probably it depends on the fact that you and someone else, have that attitude. Never been my case.

        • Dan

          god you’re such a fucking fedora wearing neckbeard. cool it with your superior complex, people who can afford these things will buy them because they can. Lamborghini has never been understated, and never will be, which happens to appeal to, oh I don’t know, other people besides yourself? fuck off.

          • Wandering_Spirit

            Lol.

        • Ary Wisesa

          If you don’t like something, it’s OK. Nobody forces you to like it anyway. But saying other people having lower taste than you just because they prefer something that you don’t like, that (in my opinion) is inappropriate. I don’t see anything wrong with basketball players, football players nor artist. They are wonderful people who actually creates employments for thousands of people in the world by doing what they do best.

          Not everyone likes an Aston Martin DB5 or Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing (which in my opinion are among the best-looking cars ever) and instead they prefer a modern Porsche 918. Likewise, not everyone likes Patek Phillippe Calatrava or IWC Portuguese, and instead they choose HYT H2 which is edgier. But it’s OK. Both DB5 and 918 are excellent cars. Both IWC Portuguese and HYT H2 are beautifully engineered watches.

          Difference makes the world a wonderful place.

          • Wandering_Spirit

            No Ary, it’s because if I compare this to a Miura it looks like a miscarried copy of a Transformer. I have stated similar things about other Lamborghini models before. Especially the latest designs. They try to keep in the line of the Countach, but in a bad way. It’s a mark of low taste but that is my opinion, doesn’t have to be everyone’s. Plus, time is a gentleman. We just need to see who buys it and how it ends up modded or not to see if I was right. No point in getting angry.

          • Wandering_Spirit

            “Difference makes the world a wonderful place.”

            Exactly. That includes my opinions addressed at a generic, unspecified group, rather than insults to people who don’t agree with me. Let’s make it two-ways.

        • LWOAP

          “Basketball players, football players, artists of a certain type etc. It will sell a lot among specific customer groups, less among those who like understated substance or a more classic vehicle.”

          Yeah, it’s real easy to assume that considering you have literally nothing to back that up. I can say a certain vehicle from a manufacturer will only sell among a specific group because that group has no taste; but that doesn’t make me right, does it? Nope.

          You’re no different. Oh and people shouldn’t project their behavioral issues onto others? That’s a fair point and I don’t disagree with that. The only problem is you’re the one getting ass mad because you think the Urus will be purchased primarily by basketball players and rap moguls. I’m not assuming you’re projecting but you definitely got a stick up your ass over something that may not even happen. Get over it.

          • Wandering_Spirit

            But I am not mad. Don’t you see how relaxed I am in answering, politely, to all of you. Even to you, with your passion for asses. Even I don’t share your tastes I still interact with you.

  • Honda NSX-R

    I’m guessing the Q8 won’t look much different from this.

  • Lloyd Anthony D Peters

    I love this. Primarily because I can call it “The Lamborghini of SUVs”. But I can see how it’s gonna upset purists. From some angles it looks extremely overdone. But isn’t that the point of Lamborghini? I’m sure everyone remembers the LM002. It was just as insane as this. For better or worse. Lol.

    Underpinnings, underpinnings, blah blah blah. It won’t matter if it drives good. Porsche proved a long time ago that you can make these family trucksters fast. So I can’t wait to see what people actually have to say about it besides it’s looks.

    My only gripe. And it’s just a gripe. Those fucking door handles. It just lets the whole side down. They looked like they were plucked right out an Audi parts bin. They couldn’t at least look at the Velar and try something like that? 😒

    • Ary Wisesa

      Maybe they would fix the door handles in the next facelift. For now, let’s just enjoy the presence of a true Lamborghini in SUV form. I think it looks like a proper Lamborghini, only taller than usual. 🙂

      • Dan

        I fucking love this thing! It’s proper bonkers

        • Ary Wisesa

          Me too… :-). Well, since I can’t afford the real one, I guess I’m going to look for the 1:18 model.. Hahaha… 😛

  • jsz00

    Wow… it looks really bland like a Lexus NX. Can’t wait until Liberty Walk or some backyard garage tuning special makes this even uglier.

  • ErnieB

    Bland.. boring.. far from exotic suv looking.

  • Sébastien
  • Pickles

    Unfortunate design which looks like a cross btw a Toyota CHR and Toyota Venza. Perhaps it goes nicely.

  • kachuks

    This car serves one purpose only. A showdown with a Trackhawk to see who gets bragging rights.

    And when it’s over, I’d still prefer the TH regardless of the outcome, because it’s a more appealing vehicle.

  • S3XY

    Too much going on. Not a clean design at all. Yuck

  • Six Thousand Times

    Yecch!

  • Mark S

    So a Cayenne in a Bull Fighters Suit, I want one.

  • EyalN

    just buy audi q7, it’s the same car and it is not so ugly

  • ace_9

    Lamborghini is my favorite dream car maker and I like almost all of their past and present cars. But I think they should stay focused purely on supercars. SUVs, hatchbacks, sedans, luxury coupes, etc. should not have Lamborghini badge. It is making the Lamborghini brand softer, at least in my eyes. And just to clarify, I know about LM001/2, Jalpa, Jarama, Espada, Estoque and so on. But since the 90’s the brand was really focused on supercars and I like that, especially in current car world situation. Now, I have to grudgingly admit, that I even like this SUV. But I don’t like pretending that it is somehow combining the best of SUV and supercar world and so on… That is bullshit to fool non-enthusiasts. Clearly, it is a car meant to increase the brand sales and nothing else, so why pretend something else ? I think it would be better if everybody would just admit it this way, because otherwise it is damaging the brand even more. I mean, why not combine the best of the school run with supercar world and make nice sharp-lined Lamborghini 8 seat MPV ? Wouldn’t that be awesome ? And what about small hot-hatch world ? SUV is the same and only non-car people could be fooled into thinking that aggressive, powerful SUV is somehow excusable.

  • Craig

    Exactly what did some of you think a Lamborghini SUV would look like? It still has to work as an SUV. I think they did a great job.

    • smartacus

      i wanted it to look like
      an Aventador given the MadMax treatment.
      Or at least resemble an LM002 a little bit 🙂

  • Robert

    I’m getting a serious Pontiac Aztek vibe from this design, especially in that color.

    • CarCzarDesigner

      Since the Aztek came out and flopped, there is a group of individuals that are self elected Nay-sayers. They are quick to condemn any new Product they think is the is the World’s next Aztek. They whip out their magnifying glass and find perhaps a 5×5 square inch spot… point their finger and cry out “Look everyone! I have found an Aztek! Pick up your beer bottles, your whiskey bottles and cast it out of our Village!”

      I believe the color is “Fly Yellow” or similar shade, which Ferrari has painted their cars. Does mean all those Yellow Ferrari’s have an Aztek vibe, too?

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Wow, that looks, awful.

    Really hope it’s the lighting.

  • fabri99

    Still looks like a giant toy car to me. Yellow doesn’t help. Hopefully it will look more balanced and graceful in the metal.

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    buy entry level Q7 instead

  • Imjus Sayin

    Hmmm….can’t get over how it just looks like something from Toyota. Kinda like sticking a Lambo badge on a CH-R.

  • TotallyDisqusted

    Ugh this thing is ugly. I’m not a huge fan of the current Lambos, but damn they could have done better than this.

  • smartacus

    Looks like a bent up VW.
    This should be making
    Lamborghini fans panic.
    What we are witnessing
    is the dilution of a once
    storied historic brand.

    • Bo Hanan

      -or the survival of the brand…

    • LWOAP

      They said the same about Porsche and that brand turned out fine.

      • smartacus

        Because Porsche had
        Porsche engineering.

        NTM
        Porsche had rally racing heritage,
        including the Paris-Dakar 959.

        • CarCzarDesigner

          I doubt most Cayenne buyers, which was introduced first, especially those in the US and other countries where Rallying is pretty much unheard of, have a clue what a 959 is or that Porsche even competed in the sport. They bought the car to join the SUV craze and loved its gold badge.

  • Dario Maggi

    an Audi dressed badly like a lamborghini, bad proportions to be a real sporty SUV !!

  • No matter now much you want to like this car, you just can’t do it…

  • SteersUright

    I happen to love it and think its a beautiful and capable SUV that should wear an Audi badge and cost $110k, rather than pose as a Lamborghini. Then again, Porsche killed it with their Cayenne and Macan which are essentially Audi’s as well, so I understand Lambo’s business logic.

  • Eduardo Palandi

    Thanks, but I’ll take the Bentayga or even a Range Rover.
