Lamborghini-Urus-2Su debut as a prototype took place in the year 2012, in the framework of the Car show in Beijing and a year despeñes was announced your start-production from the year 2017. In a recent interview granted to Coach by the managers of the brand Stephan Winkelmann and Mauricio Reggiani, confirmed that the Lamborghini Urus will use a V8 engine-Turbo 4.0-liter.

Surprising that the propellant chosen to be a new unit V8 twin turbo and not the V10 or V12 kw, which are used in the Huracán and Aventador.

Winkelmann said that the Urus is going to have the most powerful engine in its class, which will transform it in a true SUV supercar, without that it means leaving aside the off-road and there is where you will play an important role, the motor with double turbo and its excellent torque at low rpm.

But in addition could be an alternative to electrical plug-in, although it has not yet been determined your start production, although the car is being designed to accept electric motors and battery packs of lithium ion batteries, taking into account that the Urus would share these items with other products of the group as the next generation of Porsche Cayenne or Audi Q7.
