Lamborghini Urus Turns Arabian Desert Into Its Own Playground

In spite of its supercar-like design, the Lamborghini Urus isn’t afraid of getting dirty.

The indirect successor of the LM002, aka ‘Rambo Lambo’, was already exploited on a ski slope earlier this month, and now has embarked on some desert drifting.

Shot in the United Arab Emirates desert, this Urus proved that it’s much more than a very fast machine. It’s also capable of powersliding under the right circumstances, and as it turns out, it feels quite at home on the sand dunes.

That’s because the Italian automaker has equipped it with a number of driving modes meant to cover pretty much every slippery surface that drivers might encounter. One of them is the ‘Sabbia’ (Italian for ‘sand’), which improves traction on, well… sand. Other driving modes are the Terra (land) and Neve (snow), in addition to the usual Strada, Sport and Corsa.

The Urus thus is nicely equipped to go on some dune bashing. And with a notable number of owners residing in the Middle East, we might see it perform even crazier stunts in those sand dunes.

    Of course 4 wheelers have been ripping through deserts for decades now…I just wounder how that plays with air intake…and the occasional loose lubricant boot.(?) Does it rip away / shorten mechanical life…or does it simply wash away?
