Lamborghini Takes Urus Super SUV Off Road So You Won’t Have To 25

Lamborghini has released yet another video of the Urus, which is shown in various environments across the globe.

The clip doesn’t actually bring anything new, as it combines the previously released videos, which teased its six driving modes, into a single, longer film, but if you want to see it unleashed on challenging terrains, then you have come to the right place.

“From off-road adventures, to breathtaking race track thrills, through glittering city streets: Urus brings pure Lamborghini style and performance to any driving environment“, the automaker wrote. “It is a true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance, driving dynamics, and emotions, as well as being suitable for everyday driving in a range of environments.”

Billed as a ‘super SUV‘, Lamborghini’s third product will reportedly use a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that makes around 650 horsepower, channeled to all four corners through an 8-speed automatic gearbox. It’s been said that naught to 100km/h (62mph) will take around 3.7 seconds, while top speed will stand in excess of 302km/h (188mph).

Lamborghini will unwrap the Urus on December 4, but they’re also planning other versions of the SUV. One of them is expected to be a plug-in hybrid that combines a gasoline engine with an electric motor, and further down the road, a muscular Performante variant is believed to join the range as well.

Chrome-Wrapped Lamborghini Aventador Puts On A Flamethrower Show 25

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Drag-Racing, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Aventador, Lamborghini Videos, Offbeat News, tuning, video on 11 25th, 2017


The ‘hot ride‘ term has a very literal meaning for the owner of this Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Filmed recently during what appears to be a drag racing event, the Aventador proved its flame-spitting capabilities that are enhanced by an aftermarket Capristo exhaust system.

This Aventador supercar doesn’t only have a deeper exhaust note, as it also wears a silver and gold wrap alongside dark elements on the roof, mirror caps and wheels. Apart from the exhaust, we don’t know if it has any other modifications, but even in stock form the Aventador is no slouch thanks to its 700PS (690hp) and 690Nm (609lb-ft) of torque.

The fire show, which happily ended without the Lambo’s rear end being lit as we have seen it happen in other occassions, was preceded by a few acceleration bursts and culminated with a quarter-mile race in the company of a previous-gen Porsche 911 Turbo S.

Its German challenger proved to be faster on the drag strip than the Italian exotic machine, but to the latter’s excuse, the Porsche had a better start as its driver pushed the throttle all the way down just as the light turned green, while the Aventador stayed still for a few tenths of a second.

Did Lamborghini Just Reveal The Urus By Accident? 22

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Urus, Lamborghini Videos, new cars, video on 11 22nd, 2017


Lamborghini’s latest Urus teaser gives us a first proper look on the new “super SUV”‘s exterior design.

As expected, the Italian super SUV stays true to the show car that debuted more than 5 years ago, albeit with what appears to be an even more dramatic front end, different headlights, and even larger wheels.

Someone at Lamborghini eventually spotted the mistake, so they took the video down, but not before other channels managed to save it and reupload online, but our guess is that they will be eventually forced to delete it as well, so enjoy it before it’s too late.

The 33-second long clip focuses on the Corsa driving mode, which is the most extreme of the six, alongside the Strada and Sport, shared with the Huracan and Aventador, and Urus-only Sabbia (Sand), Terra (Land), and Neve (Snow).

The latest video comes a few days after we managed to catch a glimpse of the Urus’ cabin, with its two digital displays, air vents inspired by the ones used in the Huracan, some flashy knobs flanking the ignition button, and a touchpad controller.

Lamborghini will drop the veil off the Urus on December 4, before opening the order books shortly after. The first units should be shipped to customers worldwide next summer.

New Lamborghini Urus Goes Exploring In Terra Mode 21

Lamborghini continues to provide insights into the Urus, ahead of its December 4 presentation, with the latest teaser video showing the SUV on a light off-road course with the ‘Terra’ mode engaged.

Developed specifically to aid the brand’s third product, after the Aventador and Huracan, on “challenging off-road tracks”, the Terra, which is Italian for ‘Land’, joins the already detailed Sabbia (Sand) and Neve (Snow) modes.

In addition to the three new driving modes found in the Lamborghini Urus, the SUV will also get the usual Strada, Sport and Corsa, which are shared with its supercar siblings, for every day driving, sportier ride, and improved traction on tracks, respectively.

On the outside, the spiritual successor of the LM002 will be instantly recognizable as a Lamborghini, but beneath the new sheet metal, it uses the same MLB Evo platform that’s currently found on the Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, and Audi Q7.

The Urus will also stay away from the naturally aspirated V10 and V12 engines that power the Huracan and Aventador, as it’s expected to use a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 unit, rated at some 650hp, which should help it become the fastest ever SUV on the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

Flagship Huracan Not Performante Enough For The McLaren 720S 15

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Drag-Racing, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Huracan, Lamborghini Videos, mclaren, McLaren 720S, McLaren Videos, video on 11 15th, 2017


The Lamborghini Huracan is without a doubt one of the most exciting supercars of 2017, and while it doesn’t produce as much power as the McLaren 720S, seeing it trying to keep up with its rival in a series of standing and rolling start drag races is quite enlightening.

Sure, on the track, the Performante is formidable, having set a Nurburgring lap time of 6 minutes and 52 seconds. It also has 640 PS and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, going to all four wheels.

In other words, it’s not exactly helpless against the 720S, especially if the latter doesn’t use launch control and the two cars accelerate from a standing start.

Of course, once the McLaren gets some traction, it catches up and blows past just about anything you can think of, so longer distances definitely favor the 720S.

As for the rolling starts, it wasn’t even close, and it’s not like the Performante didn’t have enough opportunities against the 720S. We’re talking four races in total, all of them pointing us towards an easy, straightforward conclusion.

McLaren 720S Welcomes Challenge From Pair Of 900 HP Huracans 13

The McLaren 720S is slowly working its way up the drag racing food chain, and after dispatching an 805 HP supercharged Huracan last week, a couple of the Lambos Italian cousins sought retribution.

Featured here alongside the McLaren are two Huracans, both producing around 900 HP, but through different mods. For example, the white Huracan is a RWD LP580-2 with a VF Supercharger, sending 790 horses to the wheels – around 900 to the crank.

The green one is a regular LP610-4 with a custom twin turbo kit, putting down the same amount of power as its rear wheel driven sibling.

Of course the McLaren 720S needs very little introduction. Its power output is right there in its name, although we do suspect that the British automaker hasn’t exactly been upfront about the 720S’ performance figures.

So without further ado, we’ll let you find out for yourselves who won these match-ups. Nine hundred horses should definitely have the Lambos covered, right? Right…?

Lamborghini Huracan Performante Is One Heck Of A Thrill Ride 11
Nov
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Huracan, Lamborghini Videos, video on 11 11th, 2017


The Lamborghini Huracan Performante may have been defeated on the Nurburgring by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, but that doesn’t mean that it’s any less exciting than it was when it broke cover in Geneva.

Building upon the LP610-4, it comes with some weight saving, clever aerodynamics, and extra power, all of which work together to make it the most track-focused, street-legal version of the supercar.

There’s only a minor difference between the two variants of the Huracan, on a straight line at least, as the Performante is 0.1sec faster from 0 to 100km/h (62mph), while top speed remains unchanged, at over 325km/h (202mph).

However, throw them on a winding road, or on a track, and the former ‘Ring King will always come out in front, with the right person behind the wheel, and that alone is enough for the Italian company to ask at least $274,390 for each example, in the USA.

Now, you can imagine sitting in the driver’s seat, and taking it out on a backcountry road, where you won’t be bothered by the annoying traffic, most of the time, so you can focus solely on the driving part. And while you’re at it, you should take a look at the video posted below, because it provides just that.

Let Lamborghini’s Design Boss Introduce You To The Terzo Millennio Concept 10

Lamborghini have proved to the world, once again, that they can successfully encapsulate their decades-long history into a futuristic concept, with their latest study called Terzo Millennio.

Developed together with MIT and presented to the world at EmTech 2017 earlier this week, the Italian study is now being slightly detailed on video, although not quite as some of you might expect.

But what does that mean? Well, in short, don’t get your hopes up to see it being put through its paces on a winding road, as the short film shows the brand’s chief of design, Mitja Borkert, talking about it, and introducing it to viewers, while the wraps quietly come off.

‘Quiet’ is a word used best to describe its powertrain too, as it comprises of four electric motors, powered by supercapacitors, with energy storage devices built within its body panels. This setup is said to provide fast charging times, but Lamborghini wasn’t eager to go into specifics just yet.

Besides offering a glimpse into the future of the Italian car marque, the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is also providing an insight into the idea of a zero-emission Lamborghini, one that eventually needs to happen to keep the company afloat.

Lamborghini Urus Jumps Over Sand Dunes In ‘Sabbia’ Mode 9

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Urus, Lamborghini Videos, video on 11 9th, 2017


After years of development, Lamborghini has finally started to provide a closer glimpse into their second SUV – the Urus.

Teased ahead of its December 4 presentation, the company’s third vehicle, after the Huracan and Aventador, features the usual Strada, Sport, and Corsa driving modes, in addition to three new ones: Terra (land), Neve (snow), and Sabbia (sand).

And while the first two will technically provide it with additional grip on challenging terrains, the latter is clearly aimed at having fun on the sand dunes, so those wealthy Middle Eastern buyers will definitely grow fond of it, during the occasional dune bashing, and not only.

Inspired by the Urus Concept shown more than 5 years ago, the spiritual successor of the LM002 will take some important steps aside from the Huracan and Aventador. It will not only be suitable for everyday drive, but it will also use a 4.0-liter twin-turbo’d V8 engine, unlike the naturally aspirated V10 and V12 used by its supercar siblings.

The unit is expected to develop approximately 650hp, which in theory will make it faster than the W12-powered Bentley Bentayga.

McLaren 720S Says “Bring It On!” To 805 HP Supercharged Huracan 7

Unless you’ve been living without your internet connecting for the past few months, you’re probably aware just how much of a beast the McLaren 720S is.

In a straight line, it’s a hypercar in supercar clothing, able to out-run a Porsche 918 and cover a standing 1/4 mile in under 10 seconds, which is absolutely staggering.

We’ve also seen it go against a tuned 650S and come out on top, which is why we were extremely interested to see how it handled its business versus another extreme machine, namely Parker from Vehicle Virgins’ supercharged Lamborghini Huracan.

This is actually YouTuber v YouTuber, with Parker taking on Brooks from DragTimes and his McLaren 720S, and lucky for us, they go the distance, letting the cars stretch out their wings in order to see which is actually faster.

In the end, both cars proved formidable, and that Huracan is wicked fast off the line with little to no traction issues. Was it enough to stay in front of the 720S though? You’re about to find out.

Watch Lamborghini Covertly Building The New Urus 6

Lamborghini is in the process of an enormous shift. It’s doubled the size of its factory and is rolling out its first crossover – a model that’s expected to double its sales and manufacturing output.

We have yet to see the finalized production version of the Urus, revealed in concept form more than half a decade ago. But we’ve been getting bits and pieces, and this is our latest.

This video shows ostensibly showcases Lamborghini’s production methods and the expansion of its home base in Sant’Agata Bolognese. But if you watch closely enough, you’ll see that it’s not the Huracan or Aventador that the line workers are assembling.

No, this one has two doors on each side and the engine up front. This, in other words, is the Urus.

It’s still just bits and pieces, with the finished bodywork still to be revealed. But it’s coming… and coming soon. In fact the Raging Bull marque has already confirmed the vehicle’s debut for December 4, which is now less than a month away.

Lamborghini Aventador Burns Rubber And Makes Sweet Music On Closed Airfield 4

Supercar owners often forget that their powerful machines, as limited and expensive as they may be, are built to have fun in.

However, every once in a while, some of them remember the purpose of their rides, and treat bystanders to some rubber-burning and high-revving experiences, like this Lamborghini Aventador driver.

Shot on a closed airfield, likely during a supercar gathering or local automotive event, the short clip reveals the Italian bull going sideways, to the delight of the spectators.

Before putting an end to the ad-hoc show, the man pulled over and abused the throttle for a few seconds, reminding us (if we ever needed that) that the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that powers the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the best sounding in its class.

Bringing the engine into discussion means, it has 700PS (690hp) and 690Nm (507lb-ft) of torque in the pre-facelifted version that lacks the ‘S’ suffix, and 40PS (39hp) more in the latter, working together to propel it from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.9sec.

Lamborghini Urus Does The Rounds At The Nurburgring 3

Posted by Brad Anderson in Lamborghini, Lamborghini Scoops, Lamborghini Urus, Lamborghini Videos, Nurburgring, Scoops, SUV, video on 11 3rd, 2017


Prior to the Lamborghini Urus debuting on December 4, a disguised prototype has been filmed undergoing tests at the Nurburgring.

As with other recent prototypes, the camoflage of this test car isn’t much more than a wrap, therefore offering us a decent look at some of the SUV’s key design elements.

As long expected, the design of the prototype model closely resembles the five-year-old concept but does include some changes, namely a revised front bumper, a slightly bulkier rear end, and new tailpipes.

Of more importance than the styling, however, is the sound of the Urus. Whereas both the Aventador and Huracan feature high-revving, naturally-aspirated engines, the Urus has a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. We know this engine will provide remarkable levels of horsepower and torque but, unfortunately, it doesn’t sound great. In fact, there’s a number of four-cylinder engines on the market which sound better.

Either way, we know the Urus will be fast and attempt to set a new SUV lap record at the Nurburgring.
