Lamborghini Sets New Record; Delivers 50 SUVs In One Year
It has been a year since Lamborghini launched Urus in India at a base price of Rs. 3.10crore (ex-showroom). Now, the Italian carmaker has announced 50 deliveries of Urus in the country setting a new record for the fastest 50 deliveries of any super-luxury model in India.
The ‘super SUV’ Urus, as described by Lamborghini, boasts a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine with the capacity of producing 650hp and 850Nm of torque. The power is sent to all four wheels with a ratio of 40:60 front-rear split. This massive power comes attached to an 8-speed automatic gearbox allowing the SUV to complete the 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.6seconds. This powerhouse can reach a top speed of 305kmph, making Urus a unique SUV. Lamborghini Urus also sports 440mm carbon-ceramic, front disc brakes that are the largest in a production car.
Another reason that makes this record special is the fact that Lamborghini has achieved this record during the slowdown of the industry. According to Sharad Agarwal, India’s Head at Lamborghini, ‘India was amongst the first few markets in which we launched the Urus and we anticipated that it would drive our future growth in volumes. The Lamborghini Urus offers the driving dynamics and emotions true to Lamborghini DNA and has the versatility of an SUV that addresses the challenge that we have in India, in terms of infrastructure. Over 70 percent of the Urus customers are first time buyers of the brand, and with the Urus added to the Lamborghini model range, it continues to expand our reach to new geographies in India.’ (Source: Internet)
The Italian carmaker is also expected to launch a much more potent version of the SUV with an updated version of the 4.0-litre V8 engine. It will be interesting to look at the changes that Lamborghini will implement in this version.
