Leaked pictures of the Lamborghini Urus have leaked out, ahead of its debut at the Beijing motor show.

The pictures of the high-performance SUV mimics its latest supercar range, and is finished in the same red paint as the Lamborghini Aventador J, which received its debut at the Geneva motor show in March. The high-riding Lamborghini has similarities with the Range Rover Evoque, but is more elegant than the Porsche Cayenne.

The model is the spirtual successor to the LM002 4x4 from 1986, but unlike that model, Lamborghini is aiming for it to become a mainstream rival for the forthcoming Bentley Falcon.

No technical information has been released, but the Urus SUV is likely to be powered by a 5.2-litre V10 producing around 600bhp.
