Lamborghini Urus Looks Right At Home On The Streets Of Rome

There’s just something about seeing an Italian exotic on the streets of its motherland. It applies not only to Lamborghini, but also to Ferrari, Maserati and in a sense even Alfa Romeo models, as long as you’re looking at the most capable versions.

Here we have the brand new Lamborghini Urus, which has recently been on a world tour of sorts, going from Europe to Asia, North America and even Australia. The journey was completed by multiple Urus models, who got to take some very impressive selfies.

In Rome, the high-riding raging bull manages to stand out even among some of the city’s most iconic locations such as the Colosseum or Vatican City, two extremely imposing backdrops.

Now, if you’re a true Urus fan, you’ll be happy to know that Lamborghini is planning on putting a lot of them on the streets by the end of this year alone. In fact, the automaker’s CEO Stefano Domenicali expects to end 2018 with a production figure of at least 1,000 units of the Urus – some of which will be going to countries not known for their excellent roads, such as Russia or India.

The Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine, putting down 650 PS (641 HP) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque. Give it room and it will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, before maxing out at 305 km/h (190 mph).

    The more i see it, the uglier it gets (especially the front part). It looks nothing like a Lamborghini, recent or past.

  • Autoexperte

    the smallest Lambo ever?

  • This does look like an updated version of the discontinued Acura ZDX…a car ahead of it’s time…

  • I genuinely think that Rome aren’t the best place for Urus, the road is tiny, the drivers there are hooligans (pardon me my Italian friends) and the car is too big for maneuver.
