Don't let the lack of exterior mods fool you.
There's no shortage of aftermarket tuners willing to tackle the Lamborghini Urus SUV and extract more power from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, which makes 641 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque in stock form. And Hennessey Performance is the latest to get its oily hands on the super-SUV.
The Texas-based tuner is currently working on its HPE750 performance upgrade kit for the Lambo SUV and they've just released this video of it testing on the dyno. In short, it sounds incredible, which can be attributed to being fitted with downpipes and other modifications. As for power, Hennessey claims it's gained another 74 hp and 124 lb-ft of twist.
According to the dyno test, the Urus sent 620 hp and 730 lb-ft to the wheels. Prior to the tuning job, a previous dyno test in stock form showed 546 hp and 606 lb-ft at the wheels. But Hennessey isn't done yet. There's more work to do, apparently, and details of any future mods will be released in good time. Hennessey has already performed other tests involving the Urus, specifically a drag race against the one and only Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
Both versions were completely stock at the time and the Urus just barely edged out its American rival. What will be equally interesting to see is the rematch following some modifications. The Jeep is already more powerful in stock form, but other factors can contribute to faster sprint times, such as a more advanced gearbox. But there's another factor interested buyers should consider: pricing.
You see, the 707 hp Grand Cherokee Trackhawk seems like a steal with a starting price tag of $87,000, whereas the Urus can't be had for anything less than $207,000. Italian pedigree never comes cheap.
