The Italian supercar manufacturer is going to debut its Urus SUV next year
While the Urus is undergoing handling tests on the Nürburgring (Germany), Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali revealed that the 2018 Lamborghini Urus will use a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 as standard, producing 650 hp.
Moreover, the new model will ride on Volkswagen Group’s modular MLB platform, which is shared with the Audi Q7, the Bentley Bentayga and the next-gen Porsche Cayenne. Generally, the Urus still focuses on speed and driving experience as other Lambos.

Lamborghino’s boss also added we’ll see the hybrid Urus a year after the standard model arrives.
With the 2018 Urus, Lambo hopes this exotic SUV will help it more than double its annual sales. The Raging Bull marque plans to produce 1,000 units of the Urus in 2018 and ramp up to 3,500 units annually by 2019. Nevertheless, that number could grow if demand is strong enough, says Domenicali.
