Lamborghini Urus Very Likely to be Turbocharged

That means it'll be the brand's first turbo model.

The Lamborghini Urus is due to arrive in 2017. That we know, but what’s still somewhat of a mystery is what exactly will be under the hood. After all, Lamborghini has been known to power its cars with naturally aspirated V10s and V12s from time to time. Sarcasm aside, sources are claiming that this trend likely won’t continue with the Urus. Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Auto Express that "an SUV could be a turbo engine for the first time for us."

We don’t know at this point which turbo engine he was referring to, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see chosen the new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that currently powers the Audi RS6 and RS7. Lamborghini is owned by the VW Group as well as Audi, so it’d make complete sense to share this high-performance engine with another exclusive brand. Remember, the Urus will be built on the same platform as the next Audi Q7 as well as the upcoming Bentley SUV. What we’ve also heard is that Lamborghini designers are trying their hardest to keep the Urus Concept’s exterior styling intact and not toning it down too much for production.
