AutoCarUK reports that Lamborghini is “on track” with the scheduled arrival of its first SUV since the legendary and ultra-rare LM002 SUV from the 1980s, the much anticipated Urus SUV. According to Audi’s boss Rupert Stadler, the SUV will be ready to be signed off by the end of this year.

“Lamborghini has to do it,” Stadler told AutoCarUK. “Because of the need to dovetail into production cycles, we should see the Urus in 2017.”
So far, word is that the Urus will be based on the new generation MLB platform underpinning the Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg, and Audi Q7. Extensive use of lightweight materials are also said to be used to help keep the Urus’s performance expectations high. Another rumor reportedly suggested the use of carbon fiber.
Either way, time will tell until the Urus sees its production debut, should all go well.
Refresher: The Lamborghini Urus Concept measures 196.5 inches long, 78.4 inches wide and 65.4 inches tall. While no powertrain details have been released, Lamborghini says that the Urus makes 600-hp and has permanent all-wheel-drive.
