The much-anticipated Lamborghini Urus, Lamborghini’s first-ever crossover-SUV, will have a lot of power, performance and luxury, but no autonomous driving tech.
Despite the general and increasing push for full or partially self-driving car, the Italian supercar maker has absolutely no intention of giving its super-duper SUV such a feature, most likely to reinforce its image of being a performance-oriented driver’s car.
Company CEO Stephan Winkelmann told that autonomous driving tech could hurt Lambo’s image as a supercar maker, even though the Urus will be more of an everyday car than either the Huracan or Aventador.
The Urus is being tuned for on-road and, thanks to an all-wheel drive system, some off-road performance. However, don’t expect it to tackle the rugged outdoors with the same determination as a Land Rover or Jeep Wrangler.
Power will likely come from an Audi-sourced 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that has been tuned specifically for Lamborghini’s needs.
Production of the Lamborghini Urus is slated to begin in the second half of 2017. When it arrives, it will rival the Bentley Bentayga as the world’s fastest crossover-SUV. Which one would you get?
