It made its global debut late last year, and was launched in our market at the start of 2018. Now, a little over half a year later, India's first Lamborghini Urus has been delivered to a customer, in Mumbai.
The first customer Urus in India is finished in Rosso Anteros (Lambo-speak for red), and runs on 22-inch diamond-finish Nath wheels (21- and 23-inch wheels are available as options). This particular example is specced with the Style package, that adds gloss black exterior trim elements, a bright chrome finish for the quad tailpipes and red brake callipers.
Inside, India's first Urus features red contrast stitching, Q-Citura pattern stitching on the black leather seats, a panoramic sunroof and ambient lighting. Also part of the feature list are a 360-degree surround view camera, a custom Bang & Olufsen 3D surround sound system and the ANIMA drive modes - in addition to the standard Strada, Sport and Corsa modes, it also gets Sabbia (sand), Terra (gravel), Neve (snow) and Ego (fully customisable) modes.
To refresh your memory, the Urus is based on the same MLB Evo platform that underpins other VW Group SUVs such as the Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne, and is powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 making 650hp and 850Nm of torque. An eight-speed automatic gearbox sends power to all four wheels (40:60 front-rear split). Lamborghini claims the near-2.2-tonne Urus will do 0-100kph in 3.6 seconds – quicker than the original Murcielago - and can go on to a top speed of 305kph. Its 440mm carbon-ceramic front disc brakes are also the largest fitted to a production car.
As such, the base price of the Urus is Rs 3.10 crore (ex-showroom), but with certain options ticked, expect the price to be closer to the Rs 4 crore mark.
