Lamborghini Urus will not arrive until 2017 image

The Italian based automaker Lamborghini will not launch the final production version of the Urus Concept earlier than 2017.

After it was officially presented to the public earlier this year, during the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, the Lamborghini Urus Concept is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the automaker announcing that a final production version will not hit the market earlier than 2017.

“The Urus isn’t an immediate priority and won’t happen until 2017 at the earliest, if the board decides to sign it off. To be honest, we don’t need it right now, as we have plenty of new cars that are selling well and will continue to sell well”, said the company’s CEO, Stephan Winkelmann for Auto Express.

If it makes it into production, the Lamborghini Urus concept 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 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 are limited for the moment and will be announced once the model will hit the assembly line.
