Lamborghini Urus Nudges 190 Mph Without Breaking A Sweat

It may have received its fair share of flak for being an SUV and sharing its platform with the VW Group’s other crossovers, but nobody can deny the Lamborghini Urus’ performance.

The 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) run takes just 3.6 seconds, according to the Italian car firm. And to better understand what this means, consider that it’s a high-riding vehicle with a curb weight of 2,200 kg (4,850 lbs).

Still not impressed? Okay, how about this: the Gallardo LP560-4 is approximately 700 kg (1,543 lbs) lighter, and uses a naturally aspirated V10 engine, unlike the Urus’ twin-turbocharged V8. And it hits the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark in 3.7 seconds, which makes it 0.1 seconds slower than the Urus.

Also Watch: Lamborghini Urus Reaches 60 MPH In A Blistering 2.9 Seconds!

It does have a higher top speed is superior in the Gallardo (325 km/h (202 mph), compared to the Urus’ 305 km/h (190 mph)). But 190 mph in an SUV is already outrageous enough.

With the Corsa mode, which brings out the best from the engine and suspension, engaged, the Urus has been subjected to a v-max run by AutoTopNL. As for the result, it’s exactly what one would expect from something powered by a 650 PS (641 hp / 478 kW) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque engine, and just 2 mph shy of the official top speed.

    Or for $88,145 you could buy an SUV that weighs 5,258 lbs, has 707 hp, reaches 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and tops out at 180 mph. Plenty good enough for me.

      The Jeep is a great call but honestly I’d get the Urus because at least you may be the only one in town with it.

        And you can get 10 burgers for the price of a fillet mignon…

    I’m not sure how cars sweat, but I think it’s safe to say that 7000 rpm is “breaking a sweat” for a car. 🙂

    But still can’t beat the Stelvio Q4 at the ring…
