2012 Beijing: Lamborghini Urus SUV to get up to 600-hp, brand plans on selling 3,000 units annually

Permanent all-wheel drive is part of the Lamborghini’s DNA and while this may be something new to some of you, the Sant’Agata Bolognese brand is also no stranger to the SUV segment.

Many supercar makes are jumping on the super-luxury SUV segment now but Lamborghini was already their in 1986 with the LM002. The Lamborghini LM002 remained in production until 1992 and while only a littler more than 300 units were ever built, the LM002 has secured its place in automotive history.

At the Beijing Motor Show this week, Lamborghini is showing its new Urus Concept – a study that shows what a successor to the LM002 could look like.

The Lamborghini Urus Concept sits on the same platform as the new Bentley EXP 9 F and the next-generation Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7.  It measures 196.5 inches long, 78.4 inches wide and 65.4 inches tall.

Lamborghini hasn’t confirmed exact details on the powertrain of the Urus but says we can expect around 600-hp. Permanent all-wheel drive with traction control is, of course, a given.

Target markets for the Lamborghini Urus include the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, the Middle East and China. The annual production volume could be around 3,000 units.
