Lamborghini will reveal its Urus SUV in production form on December 4th later this year.
The performance-SUV will be unveiled for the first time at the home of Lamborghini, Sant’ Agata Bolognese, in Italy.
The current SUV record holder at the Nurburgring is the previous-gen Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, with a laptime of 7:59.74.
The Urus will share the same architecture as the new Cayenne – which was revealed in Frankfurt – but will have more power from a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 under its bonnet; it’s previously speculated to be 485kW.
The new Raging Bull will also be able to clock 300km/h “because it is a Lamborghini”, according to the brand’s research and development chief, Maurizio Reggiani.
Styling for the Urus is likely to be drastically different to the brand’s first SUV, the LM002, with a more sporstcar-esque design.
The Urus concept had a remarkable likeness to the V12-powered Aventador, but this may be watered down slightly to suit the production proportions of a modern SUV.
“The Lamborghini Urus redefines possibilities, creating a class of its own: unprecedented SUV performance, luxury and versatility, with the distinctive dynamic design DNA of a Lamborghini super sports car,” the manufacturer’s release reads.
“The Super Sports Utility Vehicle is no longer impossible.”
