The Lamborghini Urus, which the firm claims will be the fastest and sharpest-handling SUV yet, will be launched in Italy later today (December 4).
The eagerly anticipated machine, which will join the Aventador and Huracan in Lamborghini's model line-up, will be unveiled at the firm's newly expanded factory in Sant'Agate Bolognese in Italy. The Urus is set to become Lamborghini's best-selling model.
In the build-up to the reveal, Lamborghini has shown some of the styling and technical details of the machine in a series of videos and images. The most recent video showed the Urus' thin taillight strip for the first time, sporting a design that looks similar to that of the Asterion - Lamborghini's shelved hybrid supercar.
Lamborghini has also recently released a video to demonstrate the car's dynamic abilities. Footage of the car being driven aggressively on circuit (below) illustrates the car's 48V-powered active anti-roll suspension technology, which is most effective when the car is set to Corsa (track) mode.
The system, which is related to the one fitted to the Bentley Bentayga (the Urus uses the same platform, as does the Audi Q7), reduces body roll by applying torque to the suspension to counter lean. It works with the car's torque vectoring technology and four-wheel steering to boost agility.
Lamborghini is also keen to emphasise that its high-performance SUV can be driven off-road. The brand has previously released footage of the Urus making use of its traction-boosting driveline technology on low-grip surfaces. It features a traction control system with six separate settings: Strada (road), Sport, Corsa (track), Sabbia (sand), Terra (dirt), and Neve (snow).
