The Italian automaker is testing a prototype Lamborghini Urus crossover in the even more powerful Evo. The test car was spotted at the Nürburgring. The debut of the novelty will take place next year.
With 4,391 sales, the Urus was the best-selling Lamborghini model in troubled 2020. The super-crossover was once again the most important vehicle for the Italian brand, accounting for over half of Lambo’s total sales. About three years after its debut, the Italian brand’s engineers are working on an updated version of the Urus crossover. Thanks to the restyling, the car should remain competitive with competitors for another three or four years. The novelty should debut next year.
Foreign photographers filmed a prototype Urus Evo while passing tests at high speeds on the Nürburgring.
We cannot judge the speeds at which it moved just by looking at the published photos, although it is obvious that the crossover remains fairly stable in corners with minimal body roll. We can only imagine a growling V8 accompanied by squealing tires.
This is a heavily disguised prototype, although there are no fake body panels to obscure our view of the production body. The camouflage film does a good job of hiding small details of the exterior, but it follows the shape of the front panel exactly, and we can really see the design of the bumper.
It’s too early to tell if the updated Urus will get a power boost, although there are already rumors that the standard version of the model will receive a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 641 horsepower. Minor hardware changes and possibly new ECU software may slightly increase performance.
