Since its market launch in 2018, 20,000 Lamborghini Urus have been produced. This is a real success story for the Italian brand Lamborghini since this model alone represents more than 50 % of the brand's sales. In 2021 alone, more than 5,000 Urus have been sold.
It is thus on the occasion of the Pebble Beach 2022, a prestigious car elegance contest organized every year, that Lamborghini presented its new version of its SUV: the Urus Performance, lighter, sportier.
Performances, diabolical, on the rise
On the engine side, the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 increases from 650 hp to 666 hp. A deliberately diabolical figure! The torque remains unchanged with 850 Nm.
The weight is down by 46 kg, but this imposing SUV still weighs 2150 kg. This weight reduction is achieved thanks to a carbon fiber roof, front bumper and hood. The Akrapovic titanium exhaust system also contributes to the weight reduction.
Thanks to all these developments, the Urus achieves 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds (0.3 seconds better than the base Urus) and offers a top speed of 306 km/h.
This may seem like a small evolution, but it allows the new Urus to return to the top of the performance rankings, especially against Porsche and Aston Martin (see the comparison table below).
New rally driving mode
The Urus still offers STRADA for comfort, SPORT for dynamism and CORSA for radical sport, and introduces a new RALLY mode for dirt driving, which amplifies oversteer by playing with the anti-roll and damping systems.
Perfect for fooling around in the desert.
Prices and delivery of the Lamborghini Urus Performante
The base price of the Lamborghini Urus Performante starts at €218,487 (before tax) in Europe and €260,676 $ (before tax) in the US.
Those who have already placed orders for the Lamborghini Urus Performante will be able to receive it by the end of 2022.
Facing the competition
So will this new Urus Performante allow Lamborghini to maintain the 5000 cars produced every year?
This is what we will see, in the meantime, here is the Lamborghini Urus Performante against the existing competition, waiting for the future Ferrari SUV!
