At the LAV-racing festival, Lamborghini set a speed record on ice, breaking the 298 kilometers per hour mark.
The event took place at Lake Baikal in our country, which is considered the largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world.
Interestingly, the Urus recorded a higher speed during training runs, accelerating to 302 km / h. The SUV also set a record for 1000 meters with an average speed of 114 km / h from a standstill. These records were set despite the apparently dangerous conditions and the fact that the ice had already warmed up significantly.
The Urus was driven by the 18-timen record holder of the “Speed Days” Andrey Leontyev. The FIA and then Automobile Federation (RAF) watched the reported mileage record, which will be released in April.
At the same time, it should be mentioned that the maximum recorded speed on ice was 335.7 km / h in the Audi RS6. This was done in 2013 in the Gulf of Bothnia in Finland.
On asphalt, the Lamborghini Urus can accelerate to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds, to 200 km / h in 12.8 seconds and a top speed of 305 km / h. Under the hood is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 641 hp. at 6000 rpm and 850 Nm of torque at 2250 rpm.
