Earlier in the year, we saw a premiere of this model, Lamborghini’s first crossover ever. It came with some spectacular design solutions, which automatically put it in its own class. This is definitely one of the fastest SUVs you can find around and the upcoming 2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante is about to put things on even higher level. As you probably know, the “Performante” badge is reserved for track-oriented versions of the company’s models. How the track-focused SUV will look like, let’s find out.
The first thing you’ll notice about the 2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante is unique exterior design. Compared to the standard Urus, we are about to see numerous distinctive details. At the front, the new version will come with the new grille and upgraded bumper, as well as a bigger front splitter. These body kit improvement will continue to the back, so we are about to see new side skirts, rear diffuser, active rear spoiler etc. Also, expect to see a new, bi-spoke wheels design. In terms of mechanics, the 2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante will ride on the same MLBevo architecture, though with various upgrades that will make it track ready. Among numerous modifications, count on a new suspension that will provide lower ground clearance compared to the standard model.
Although this crossover rides on the same platform as models like Bently Bentayga or Audi Q7, the cabin layout is completely different, not just in style but in overall design approach. This cabin looks pretty futuristic, full of various kinds of controls and buttons, like a real fighter jet. The new 2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante will bring even some upgrades. First of all, some areas will receive new composite materials, in order to save weight. Expect also custom color schemes, telemetric system and much more. Finally, a list of standard features should be different.
Though the 2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante will feature more power than the standard model, it will feature the same engine. It is a familiar 4.0-liter V8, which is the base variant delivers a little bit more than 640 horsepower. For this version, it will get a slight power boost, so a max output will probably go up to 680 hp, which should be enough to provide 0-60 time in about 3.5 seconds. Models like Porsche Cayenne Turbo S or Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio are fast, but no way near to the Urus. It becomes clear that Urus Performante won’t have a decent competitor unless Ferrari or McLaren release their SUV models.
2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante Release Date and Price
The 2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante will probably come in about a year. Details about price are yet to come. Still, if we consider that the base Urus goes around $200,000, this one will cost at least $230,000.
