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.

I didn't think I would, but I really like it!

I'll wait to see it in the flesh.

May have been done on another thread which I haven't read but I can see this car being nick named Anus!

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

They should call it the 'LM003'.

It appears they're going down the same route as the original Cayenne, grafting supercar styling onto an SUV.

I'm hoping this is the equivalent of a pirate DVD and the real thing looks better. I'm thouroughly underwhelmed so far, though. Terrible name too!

Yawnnnnnnnnnnn...

The front looks a bit Porschey to me. The sides and back look quite Evoquey.

I was a bit worried from early artists impressions that they'd do a Porsche and draft the sports car nose onto an SUV, and this appears to be the case. Can't say I'm a fan of the front, although the rest looks pretty good, in an enormous Evoque kind of way.

No doubt it'll be very impressive looking on the road.

The interior doesn't look like the most comfortable of places to spend a trans-continental drive though.

What a rivalry!

This, and Bentley Falcon! Which one looks more stupid, excessive, overdone, unnecessary....kitsch!

Wasn't it nice when certain brands stood for certain things, and what was that expression about someone being a giacomo-of-all-trades?

'Orrible! A BMW competitor. Car makers have still not learned.

    All-new bigger Mini continues to make a curious, flawed crossover hatchback, though it’s more compelling to drive than some and more practical than it used to be
