Lamborghini tried to cover its tracks, but it was too late. You can’t hide from the internet.
Lamborghini’s exhaustive teaser campaign for the upcoming Urus SUV continues with yet another video showcasing its plethora of off-road driving modes. This time the focus is on the Urus’ Corsa (that’s Italian for race) driving mode, which is essentially the SUV’s track driving mode derived from the Huracan and Aventador. What’s significant about this trailer, however, is that Lamborghini accidentally leaked the design of the Urus. A brief shot of the infotainment screen shows an image of the production Urus in all its glory.
The video was swiftly taken down, but Lamborghini wasn’t fast enough to prevent YouTubers from downloading the video and reuploading it. Cunningly, Lamborghini has tried to cover its tracks by reuploading the video on its official YouTube channel with the revealing shot edited out. But it’s too late - the damage has already been done.
As we suspected, the final production Urus looks a lot like the original concept revealed in Beijing back in 2012, but with different headlights, larger wheels and a far more aggressive front fascia. While the Urus rides on the same MLB Evo platform platform as the Porsche Cayenne, Bentayga and Audi Q7, Lamborghini’s super SUV looks noticeably more aggressive than your typical SUV.
Large air vents, a prominent splitter dominate the front, while bulging wheel arches give the SUV a muscular appearance. Its sporty styling complements the technical specifications that Lamborghini is touting for the Urus, which will be powered by a bespoke 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine sending 650 hp to all four wheels. The video also gives us a better look at the interior. As we already saw in recently leaked photos, the cabin features an all-digital instrument cluster, a large infotainment screen and a secondary touchscreen panel in the center console that let you switch between driving modes using the HVAC controls.
Lamborghini will be revealing the Urus on December 4 at its headquarters Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, so don’t be surprised if we see more teaser videos of the super SUV in action between now and then.
