The Lamborghini Urus Performante, Automobili Lamborghini’s newest high-performance SUV, has been revealed. The Lamborghini Urus SUV, on which the Urus Performante is built and which has undergone a number of modifications to make it faster overall, is the model for this car. Prior to its official debut, the Lamborghini Urus Performante participated in the storied Pikes Peak Hillclimb competition. It reached the top in 10 minutes, 32.064 seconds, which is a production SUV record. The Lamborghini Urus Performante surpassed the Bentley Bentayga, which had previously held the record, by more than 17 seconds.
The Lamborghini Urus Performante has a sinister 666 horsepower (657 bhp), which is 16 bhp more than the 641 bhp of the standard model. However, the SUV continues to use the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, and its robust 850 Nm of usable torque is still accessible from as little as 2,300 rpm. The Performante uses a lot of carbon fiber throughout the SUV, which helps it reduce kerb weight by 47 kg. The 0-100kmph time is lowered because of this and is now 3.3 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds quicker than the Urus’s normal speed. The SUV’s top speed of 306kmph remains unaltered.
“The Urus Performante takes to the road as a lightweight, honed athlete. Its muscular stance, distinctive design, V8 twin turbo powerplant and lightweight sports exhaust establish it through sight, sound and experience as the most exciting contender on every road, track and loose surface” sadi Rouven Mohr, the Chief Technical Officer, Automobili Lamborghini while talking about the new SUV.

Other than the increase in power, the Lamborghini Urus Performante differs from the Urus in a number of significant ways. The air suspension of the SUV has been replaced with new steel springs, which lower the vehicle by 20 mm. The SUV now has a 16 mm wider track for improved handling, and new carbon fibre bodywork extends the car’s overall length by 25 mm. The SUV also has a brand-new rear spoiler that was inspired by the Aventador SVJ, increasing the rear downforce by 38%. The Urus Performante’s overall aerodynamic profile is a progression of the Urus, making the vehicle more aerodynamic and better able to cool the engine.

The Strada, Sport, and Corse driving modes from the Urus are all included in the Urus Performante, along with a brand-new Rally driving mode that is tailored specifically for loose terrain. Due to the cunning anti-roll & damping systems, this mode permits a little bit more oversteer and enables you to slide the large, powerful four-wheel drive performance SUV.
The Lamborghini Urus, which has sold over 200 units in India, was the most reasonably priced Lamborghini available for purchase. The Urus has been the most well-liked vehicle from the Italian manufacturer because of its performance, which is in the category of supercars while preserving the lofty profile typical of SUVs. This makes it the perfect choice for Indian roads. The Urus Performante takes everything the Urus excelled at and amplifies it, so it wouldn’t be surprising if this model experiences even greater popularity.
