Lamborghini Has Recently Produced Its 15,000th Urus SUV
This comes just a year after the 10,000th Urus rolled off the Lamborghini production line.
While many may still lament the fact that many traditional supercar manufacturers have since sold out by turning to making SUVs these days, no one however can deny the fact that these automakers are also making massively big bucks through this process. Such is evidenced by Lamborghini and its Urus, with the Italian premium marque recently celebrating the fact that it had just produced the 15,000th unit of its super SUV.
Currently holding the record as Lamborghini’s highest produced model in the company’s history in the shortest amount of time since its launch, a total of 15,000 Urus has been produced since it debuted back in December 2017. What is perhaps even more impressive though is that the Italian supercar manufacturer had managed to churn out an extra 5,000 of these super SUVs in a little less than a year, seeing as the raging bull only celebrated the production of the 10,000th unit at almost the exact same time last year.
Now delving deeper into the specs of the 15,000th Urus in particular, Lamborghini has revealed that the super SUV with chassis number 15,000 is destined for a customer in the UK. The exterior of this specific Urus has also been revealed by the manufacturer to be finished in Grigio Keres Matt with contrasting Verde Scandal accents, whereas the cabin features a two-tone Nero Ade/Verde Scandal colour combination.
Discussing further on Lamborghini’s wider successes with its Urus meanwhile, it essentially only took three years to become the automaker’s highest produced model in its history. And just to put into better perspective the scale of this achievement, the Gallardo was originally considered a massive hit back then, when a little over 14,000 units were shifted in its decade-long (2003 – 2013) production run.
The sales successes of the Urus shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone anymore though, as this super SUV is by far and away the company’s best selling model in its current portfolio. Taking a look at its sales figures from January to June of this year, the number of this practical raging bulls sold during this six-month period are about 50% more that of the Huracan and Aventador combined.
Having said that however, the Urus isn’t just a cash cow for Lamborghini, as it does have some notable performance achievements to its name too. The most notable of which being its title as the fastest car on ice, having hit a record-setting 298 km/h on Lake Baikal in Russia during the Days of Speed event recently.
Speaking more about the Urus’ future on the other hand, it is more or less confirmed that Lamborghini will be debuting a facelifted model sometime next year. What the update will bring however is less than confirmed, but it is expected to gain some form of electrification element under the hood in line with the automaker’s recently revealed green initiatives.
PRESS RELEASE: A few days after the sales record achieved in the first six months of the year with 4,852 cars delivered globally, Automobili Lamborghini sets a new production record. Three years after it was introduced to international markets, the Lamborghini Urus Super SUV has hit the extraordinary threshold of 15,000 cars produced, setting the record of the highest produced model in the company’s history in the shortest amount of time since its launch. The Urus with chassis number 15,000, earmarked for the British market, is configured with the latest “Graphite Capsule” set of colors and finishes. The exterior is made in the new shade of Grigio Keres Matt, with Verde Scandal details. The two-tone interior is dedicated to the new collection in Nero Ade/Verde Scandal.
The Urus has significantly contributed to the overall increase in Automobili Lamborghini sales since its presentation in December 2017. The company’s total volumes doubled in 2019, the first year it was fully marketed. Its extraordinary performance and absolute versatility, provided by an ability to merge the soul of a super sports car with the features of a SUV, continue to endorse it as the best-selling Lamborghini model today.
The Urus has a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, delivering 650 HP (478 kW) at 6000 rpm (max. 6800 rpm), and a torque value of 850 Nm at 2250 rpm. With 162.7 HP/liter, it boasts one of the highest specific power ratings in its class, as well as the best power-to-weight ratio at 3.38 kg/HP. What’s more, with acceleration of 0-100 km in 3.6 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 12.8 seconds, it achieves a top speed of 305 km/h, making it one of the fastest Super SUVs currently on the market.
It is also absolutely the fastest car on ice. It was the Urus that set the speed record on the ice of Lake Baikal in Russia in March 2021, during the Days of Speed. With a top speed of 298 km/h and an average speed from a standing start of 114 km/h over 1000 meters, it demonstrated terrific performance and exceptional handling in spite of the reduced traction due to the ice and strong gusts of wind.
