The Urus Might Be The Lamborghini Of SUVs, But It’s No Match For A Real Lambo Supercar

We have waited long enough for the Lamborghini Urus’ drag racing debut, making this straight line battle against a Huracan all the more exciting to watch.

Unlike other sporty SUVs such as the Cayenne or the Levante, the Urus can actually call itself the ‘insert brand name here’ of SUVs since it genuinely looks like no other SUV out there, and it’s also tremendously fast thanks to its 4.0-liter twin turbo V8.

The engine in the Urus is good for 650 PS (641 HP) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque, figures that outweigh those of the Huracan, whose 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 unit produces 610 PS (601 HP) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque.

In a straight line, the supercar is quicker though, hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed rated at 325 km/h (202 mph). Meanwhile, the Urus needs 3.6 seconds to hit the same mark, maxing out at 305 km/h (190 mph) if need be.

Of course, there’s a massive weight discrepancy here, and while the Urus, rated at just under 2,200 kg (4,850 lbs), is lighter than say, a Cayenne Turbo, it would need to go on a serious juice cleansing in order to get anywhere near the Huracan’s 1,553 kg (3,424 lbs).

While this is certainly not the last Urus that will ever go up against a genuine supercar in a drag race, perhaps it’s better if from now on, the Lamborghini of SUVs sticks to battling its own kind – well, at least in pure, stock form…

    That’s why SUV’s suck, man! They can pretend to be sports cars all they want, but in the end they’re compromised! Can’t keep up with a car even though it’s up 40 hp. On top of that, they look shit too!

    • Ken Lyns

      The Urus won from a standing start (as with any proper drag race).

  • Bash
