These are insane performance figures for an SUV weighing almost 5,000 pounds.
With its 4.0-liter V8 pumping out 641 horsepower, the Lamborghini Urus is one of the fastest and most powerful SUVs on the planet, offering unprecedented performance for a large and heavy SUV. But that hasn't stopped aftermarket tuners from extracting more power from Lamborghini's super SUV, taking it to new levels of insanity.
We're used to seeing supercars and sports cars enjoy top speed runs on the German autobahn, but this latest speed test aims to find out if a tuned Lamborghini Urus can break the 200 mph barrier.
The modified SUV is fitted with a Novitec sports exhaust, which sounds suitably menacing at the start of the video. Thanks to modifications by German tuner HGP Turbo, the Urus is uprated to 840 horsepower, making it more powerful than a Lamborghini Aventador S.
Before the top speed run, some acceleration tests were conducted to see how the tuned SUV compares to the stock version. 0-62 mph took just 3.15 seconds, around 0.5 seconds faster than the modified version. It also hit 155 mph in 17.18 seconds from a standstill and obliterated the quarter-mile in 10.85 seconds.
With Corsa (race) mode activated, the driver puts his foot to the floor and drives as fast he dares on an unrestricted section of autobahn with no speed limits to find out the SUV's true top speed. Lamborghini quotes a top speed of 189.5 mph for the stock version. But with all that extra muscle and a long stretch of autobahn, the modified Urus maxed out at 314 km/h (195 mph) according to the GPS, but the speedometer reads 327 km/h (203 mph).
Yes, we live in a world where an SUV that weighs almost 5,000 pounds can achieve supercar speeds. The SUV that was tested rode on 23-inch tires but was "significantly faster" on 22-inch tires, so it will be interesting to see the results in a future video. Sadly, speed runs like this may not be possible in the future as the German government wants to impose speed limits on the autobahn.
