Unlike any other Lamborghini out there, except for the old LM002, the Urus is the only one that can travel on anything else but buttery smooth tarmac.
The Rambo Lambo is, however, a thing of the past, whereas the Urus is all about the present. It’s the vehicle of choice for those who want a Lamborghini and, at the same time, would like to transport more than just one passenger and just a couple of soft bags at a squeeze.
Ah, but the Italian manufacturer would have you believe that it’s also for those who’re not afraid to get their Guccis dirty because, even though (unlike the LM002) it’s a modern, super luxurious and super fast SUV, it can do real off-roading too. Hence the latest video they released.
With the ‘Sabbia’ mode engaged, the Urus can bravely attacks dunes or, in this case, a remote sandy beach. Taking it there is the ‘Terra’, which “ensures comfort and ease in off-road conditions”, Lamborghini notes, whereas ‘Neve’ is the go to driving mode when temperatures drop below freezing point and the roads turns icy. The ‘Anima’ selector gives drivers the option to choose between ‘Strada’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Corsa’, too, like in the rest of the brand’s modern machines – these are for tarmac, where the luxury SUV will spent 99.9 percent of its life anyway.
Now, enough technicalities, as it’s time to see the Urus being taken out of its comfort zone for a few precious moments, something not so common, despite its versatile nature. The video was shot in Nazare, Portugal, on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, and is part of a road trip that included a small Urus convoy. Lamborghini even designed a surf board that made it possible to tackle “the biggest waves in the world”, because, adventurous spirit and all that.
