Lamborghini has defied brand expectations by revealing its first SUV model since the LM002 in 1986, with the Urus rolled out at an overnight event ahead of an Australian launch in Autumn next year.

The Lamborghini Urus comes equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine to go along with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and reaching a top speed of 190 miles per hour. In other words, the 3.6-second 0-60 time for the Trackhawk is fairly conservative, so it is a number that people will be able to hit without much practice. This is the new 2019 Lamborghini Urus, whether you wanted it or not. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic unit, and the vehicle is equipped as standard with an all-wheel-drive system that features torque vectoring technology to boost handling. Carbon-ceramic brakes come standard, and they're the largest fit to any production car-considering the Urus' weight and power, they'll be needed. Aluminium 10-piston callipers clamp down up front while cast-iron floating six-pot stoppers feature at the rear.

The system provides counter-phase steering at low speeds for added maneuverability and in-phase steering (i.e. same direction as front wheels) at high speeds.

Lamborghini says it will also have off-road ability in a range of environments, and it has different driving modes, including Strada (road), Terra (off-road), Neve (snow), Sabbia (sand) Sport, and Corsa. The Urus sits on wheels ranging from 21 to 23 inches in diameter, fitted with Pirelli P-Zero tyres that were specially developed for the model.

With lightweight carbon fiber bodywork, an adjustable air suspension system and all-wheel-steering, the Urus was engineered to deliver high performance on a wide variety of surfaces.

With seating for five, the Urus also boasts a reasonable 616 litres of cargo space (with rear seats in use).

Safety and driver assist technologies will extend to high beam assist, front and rear parking sensors, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, cruise control, and up to eight airbags.

Available features include electromechanical active roll stabilisation, adaptive dampers, LED headlights and tail-lights, hands-free tailgate operation, 360-degree camera system, and a 1700W 21-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Inside, there's adual touchscreen displays powered by an "LIS" multimedia system. This is a big deal for Lamborghini-it's set to double the company's production.
