Lamborghini has finally settled on a concept SUV: a 600-hp super car previewed by the Urus concept to give the Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q7 some serious competition. In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Urus is named after a famous bull, also known as aurochs. Estimated price of Lamborghni SUV is between $150,000 and $200,000 with arrival expected in 2015-2016.  Hope you enjoy this photo album:

The Lamborghini Urus is Lamborghini’s second SUV attempt equipped with an Audi-derived 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 after the monstrous LM002 from the 1980s. Also, the only SUV by an exotic sports-car brand—at least for now. The angular, angry styling seems bent on turning urban roads into battlefields, but peasants in their Civics and Cavaliers may simply flee in terror. Lamborghini wants the Urus to become its highest-volume model and its beachhead in China, which is clamoring for platinum-plated SUVs. It also fits the brand’s rich-hipster image as well as its history as a purveyor of leather-lined tanks to the Saudi elite. It makes sense that Lamborghini brings out an SUV. It was always about extravagance, but less confined to particular segments than, say, Ferrari.

Lamborghini’s trucklet will use the second generation of the Volkswagen Group’s modular-longitudinal platform, used by most Audi passenger cars and expected to underlie the next generations of the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, and Volkswagen Touareg.

Competition: The upcoming Bentley SUV, BMW X6 M, Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged, Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG, Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
