New patent images showing the Lamborghini Urus SUV have made their way onto the web, showing the model in what may be a step closer to its final production form.
While the company’s officials, like Stephan Winkelmann, are saying that a decision on producing the Lamborghini Urus hasn’t been taken yet and it will be discussed this year, the Italian based automaker seems to be working on the SUV, and this probably means that a final production version is most likely in the books. The image posted above has been found on The German Car Blog, which is quoting the Chinese patent office.
If it makes it into production, the Lamborghini Urus SUV will ride on the same platform as the Bentley EXP 9 F production, the Volkswagen Touareg, the Porsche Cayenne or the Audi Q7, which will be made out of steel and it will help the crossover to weigh around 4,400 lbs (1,996). The final production version of the Lamborghini Urus Concept is expected to hit the market sometimes in 2017 and it will be powered by the new 6.0 liter W12 engine borrowed from Bentley, or by the smaller 4.0 liter V8. Prices for the model should be set at 200,000 USD. Additional details on the Urus will be announced close to its launch.
