What Will The Urus SUV Have That No Other Lamborghini Will?

Aside from limited off-road capabilities.

The upcoming production-spec Lamborghini Urus will be unlike anything else in the Italian supercar company’s lineup – and not only because it’ll be an SUV. We’ve just reported the Urus won’t come with autonomous tech and, while being designed for mainly on-road performance, it will have some off-roading capabilities. But what about its new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8? Is this a sign of things to come for future Lamborghinis, such as the eventual successors to the Huracan and Aventador? After all, Ferrari has already made the switch to turbocharging.

According to a new report coming from the crew at Autocar, that new V8 will be solely for the Urus. Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann admitted his company had "discussed" the idea for that V8 to appear in other models, but in the end it was decided that would conflict with the 'one car, one engine ethos.' He stated that, regarding super sports cars, "we are convinced that all the choices we have made with the naturally aspirated engines are still the right choices." However, Winkelmann did add the following: "We are not saying that future engines will never beat what we have in our cars; we are saying as long as there is nothing that is better, especially at low revs or in terms of the sound that the V10 and V12 have, we stick to them."
