Lamborghini debuted the Urus facelift in August at Pebble Beach, highlighting the hotter Performante for 2023.
This new S variant nevertheless, is the actual successor for the enormously successful Super SUV in its basic form. Lamborghini will be selling two varieties of their LM002 worthy successor for the first time. We’d argue it serves as a more subtle alternative to the Performante.
The Urus S is powered by the same enhanced twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces an evil 666 horsepower and 850 Newton-meters (627 pound-feet) of torque. However over the Performante’s weight shavings of 47 kilos (104 pounds),makes it kinda slower. Indeed, Lamborghini says the Performante takes 3.3 seconds to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) whereas the S needs an additional 0.2 seconds. The top speed stays consistent, at 305 km/h.
The 2023 S Pack also gets a standard stainless steel underbody element finished in matte black and a painted carbon fibre hood with matte black air intakes. Some of the optional trim can be had with the same dark finish or with carbon fibre in gloss or matte. Inside, there are fresh two-tone leather upholsteries and bi-color trim.
There seems to be no statement about something like a hybrid version for now, but Lamborghini has already said it’ll electrify all its models by 2024. The Urus could receive a plug-in hybrid system based on the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
With a launch from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 12.5 seconds, the Urus S is no slacker among high-performance SUVs. finished in matte titanium 22-inch wheels and a diamond bronze 23-inch set. In addition to the brushed steel finish of the newly designed setup exhaust, you can choose an exposed carbon fibre roof and matte or glossy black exhaust tips.
