Lamborghini is currently mostly known for its SUVs. Through June of this year, the people of Sant'Agata Bolognese constructed 2,796 Urus units, a 35% increase over the first half of 2020. The Super SUV outsold both the Huracan and the Aventador, which sold 1,532 and 524 units, respectively.
Lamborghini's first half of the year in 2021 was the best in the company's history, and the iconic Italian brand now has another cause to rejoice. The Urus has hit a significant milestone three years after it first went into production, with the 15,000th model being built this week.
The Urus, the fastest car on ice after reaching 298 km/h on Lake Baikal in Russia, is set to undergo a slew of upgrades as part of its mid-cycle modification. Its twin-turbo 4.0-liter engine will almost certainly be tweaked to produce more than its present 641 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque.
Aside from increased power from the ICE and a PHEV variant, the Urus is anticipated to get the tough ST-X derivative that the Italians have been talking about for over three years. Volkswagen Group will aim to regain control of the title of quickest production SUV at the Nürburgring. It is presently occupied by the Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT.
The Urus is critical to Lamborghini's strategy to revamp its portfolio since the firm is investing in hybridizing not just the SUV, but also the Huracan and Aventador successors by 2024.
