The Urus is priced just under RM1mil before duties. It has received 30 pre-orders in Malaysia.
At the premiere of the Urus at the Alya Sime Darby showroom, Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur chief operating officer Marcus Chye said buyers likely need to wait 18 months for the Urus to be delivered, due to high global demand.
The Urus boasts a 4.0 litre V8 twin-turbo engine with 650hp and top speed of 305kph. It can race to 100kph in 3.6 seconds, Lamborghini said.
It has a 4WD system with active torque vectoring and four-wheel steering.
The model marks Lamborghini’s entry into one of the fastest-growing vehicle markets. The "super SUV" could help it tap new markets and customer groups traditionally not attracted to its high-powered, low-slung sportscars.
Lamborghini, one of Volkswagen’s stable of super-luxury brands along with Bentley and Bugatti, has said a plug-in hybrid version of the Urus will be introduced by 2020.
The five-seater Urus has a front-mounted, 4.0-litre petrol V8 twin-turbo aluminium engine, mated to a automatic eight-speed gearbox.
The choice of a turbo engine, the first in a Lamborghini, delivers 650hp (478kW) at 6,000 rpm, maximum 6,800rpm and a maximum torque of 850Nm at 2,250 - 4,500rpm, the Urus has a specific power of 162.7 hp/l.
With a kerb weight lower than 2,200kg the Urus is the SUV with the best weight-to-power ratio at 3.38 kg/hp.
The Urus accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 12.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 305 km/h.
The Urus features a four-wheel drive system for highly-responsive driving dynamics in all weather.
Torque is split 40/60 to the independent front/rear axle as standard, with a dynamic maximum torque of 70% to the front or 87% to the rear, enhancing traction to the axle with higher ground friction.
The Urus features active torque vectoring via a rear differential, enabling propulsive power to be instantly distributed to each individual wheel for enhanced traction.
Torque vectoring also provides additional steering control: less steering effort is required, with enhanced agility allowing higher cornering speeds and a more sporty drive.
Yaw motion is controlled, avoiding understeer into corners and tire slip during acceleration.
In the driving modes STRADA, TERRA (off-road) and NEVE (snow) torque vectoring reduces understeer for safe and simple driving.
In SPORT and CORSA torque vectoring allows the Urus to become more agile with a greater oversteer character: interaction between the fourwheel drive system and ESC manages oversteer to enable a precise and fun drive.
In SABBIA (sand) mode, the system is calibrated to guarantee agility and precision on terrains with reduced grip such as on gravel or sand dunes, making it the ideal mode for off-road fun.
The Lamborghini Urus adopts the rear-wheel steering, introduced in the Aventador S, over the whole speed range, for increased maneuverability and stability and ride comfort as well as optimum driving dynamics.
Carbon Ceramic Brakes (CCB) as standard, are the largest and most powerful available, measuring 440 x 40 mm at the front and 370 x 30 mm at the rear.
The standard front DNA memory sport seats are fully electric, heated and 12-way adjustable.
More luxurious, 18-way fully-electric front seats are available as an option, including features such as ventilation and massage.
The rear bench seat can be lowered to substantially extend the trunk space from 616 liters to 1,596 liters.
As an option in conjunction with the fully-electric front seats, a more exclusive two-seat rear layout can be specified.
Included as standard is an LIS touchscreen infotainment display across two screens.
The LIS III integrates innovative connected voice control, and included as standard is a phone holder compartment with wireless charging and voice control; a personal memory profile, USB connections, Bluetooth media streaming, and a DVD player.
A sound system featuring eight speakers, driven by four channels comes as standard.
A high-end Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound and 1,700 watt output can be specified, with 21 fully active speakers.
