The Urus is Lamborghini’s best-selling car and not too long ago, Lamborghini unveiled their Performante which receives some styling and performance upgrades.
The Urus S packs the same power as the Performante, but Lamborghini has made it slightly less flashy. It sports a new front bumper design and incorporates a new matt black-painted stainless steel skidplate as standard, complemented by the black lines of the front grille. It also comes with a new lightweight carbon fiber painted bonnet with matt black air vents. Though these components come standard, buyers have an option to spec these parts in gloss black, body color or carbon fiber in shiny or matt finish respectively. The Urus S comes standard with 21-inch wheels with an option of a 22-inch Nath rims with titanium matt and diamond polish finish. Alternatively, it can be optioned with 23-inch Taigete wheels that can be selected in bronze and diamond polish alternatives.
With so many customization options on the outside, the inside is the same. The interior of the Urus S is presented with a fully-revised color and trim offer. The sophisticated black leather trim comes with new contrast color options in conjunction with refined new Blu Leandro and Verde Aura alongside tan, cream and brown.
The Urus S is powered by the same upgraded twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine which produces a mental 490kW and 850 Nm. Power is sent to all four wheels and Lamborghini claims the Urus S will sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and it has a top speed of 305 km/h. The Urus S is two-tenths slower than the Performante, and that’s due to the extra 47 kilograms it weighs.
When it comes to connectivity, the Urus S includes connected navigation, security features and several in-car control services. Services such as Remote Park via the Lamborghini Unica App can also be managed via smartphone integration, with the enhancement of smartwatch controls including the virtual car key function.
