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).
