As production green light approaches, further details emerge.
A few weeks ago, we told you about a debate taking place within the VW Group andincluding the Italian Government. Wondering whether the upcoming Urus SUV would be a homebred Lamborghini built on local soil, the government went as far as tooffer a $111 million tax incentive to the company if it would just manufactureits SUV where all other Lamborghinis are born. Now, Quattroruote is reportingthat the Urus has finally been given the production green light by relevantexecutives, who have also made a final decision regarding its birthplace.
Despite citing a lower incentive number from the government – this timearound 80 million euros – it seems the incentives have done their job: the Uruswill be built on home turf, bringing some 300 jobs to the Italian economy. Althoughit still may ride on a chassis built in VW Group's plant in Bratislava, thismove lends some more credence to Lamborghini's claim that the Urus will be atrue Lambo. This also brings the Urus, which has been around in concept formsince 2012, one step closer to production. And now that its nationality is outof the debate, we can go back to asking ourselves how "true" this SUVwill be to Lamborghini's well-established heritage.
