A three-door Urus coupe would sacrifice practicality for more exotic looks.
The Lamborghini Urus is being hailed as the world’s first Super SUV. In other words, it’s a supercar disguised as an SUV packing a twin-turbo V8 that produces 650 horsepower, allowing the Urus to sprint to 62 mph in 3.59 seconds before reaching a top speed of 186 mph. Given that Lamborghini is hoping the Urus will double the company’s sales, we’ll likely see new variants arrive in the coming years. We’ve already seen what a high-performance Urus Performante could look like, but what if the super SUV was designed with three doors instead of five?
This latest render is once again the work of X-Tomi Design, which sees the artist transform the Urus into a sporty three-door coupe. While removing the rear doors obviously sacrifices some of the Urus’s practicality, the SUV’s sloping roofline suits the coupe body. As a result, it looks even sportier and more exotic than the current SUV which complements its potent performance. It’s unlikely that Lamborghini will ever make a coupe-style variant of the Urus, however. Three-door SUVs don’t tend to be as popular as their more practical four-door counterparts, which is why Land Rover recently killed off the three-door Evoque Coupe in the US.
So far, the only future Variant of the Urus Lamborghini has confirmed is a hybrid version that could borrow the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid’s engine, which has a combined output of 680 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque. To prove its performance claims, the Urus will be tackling the Nurburgring next spring to attempt a new SUV lap record where it will need to beat the seven minutes and 51.7 second time set by the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio.
